        I turn the brim of my hat over the ear that is most vulnerable. Some guys wear ear plugs.

            Never had slag in the ear, because I always wear ear plugs when welding.

                      Spatter/dingleberries in your ears & hair

                      I can understand where your coming from. I usually do MIG on my table, but had a lot of problems working on the buckets of loaders where you have to climb inside of them to reach the back. I'm a former firefighter and had several old Nomex / PBX hoods I used for entry firefighting. There flame and heart resistant, and in my case a good price! If you had to buy one, I'd guess they would be about $20-25 - I checked on Cyberweld and they have one for $21.45. The ones I'm talking about are fairly light-weight, not the heavy winter hoods. Hot enough without adding a heavy piece of gear whether FF or welding.

                        Because... Anti-spatter does not do a thing for keeping the sun from shining on the back of the filter glass and getting in your face while you try to look at the pudddle.

                          I do a lot of automotive sheet metal work, floor pans, exhaust etc.

                          I wear ear muffs when welding/cutting underneath a vehicle to prevent spatter in the ear.

                            Ear Plugs, you need them for grinding anyways.
