I ended up buying a helmet with a removeable front face part, so it's half way between a full face front DH helmet and a normal non-full face helmet. It LOOKS like a full face, but is probably weaker due to the entire helmet not being one piece.

My reasoning was this: If I buy a full face, I will NOT wear it on the way up. There are often times when trails go up and down for a bit before doing the final climb. Some of those little downhill spurts are fast, and if I crash there without a helmet on, it'd be pretty dangerous. So my plan is to wear only the top part on the way up, then attach the bottom for the ride down (the final "down".)
