For me, it's full face, all the time, no exceptions.
I've had only 1 motorcycle accident (knock on wood there) and it was a doozy with me ending up on my chin at 50km/h. The paramedics said if I wasn't wearing a full face helmet I'd have a wired jaw today.
Not a scare tactic, just pointing out what my experience was.
