If you plan to do any road riding, you'll want a helmet with a shield. If you can't spend over $100 now, you won't be excited to have to spend another $100 later to get another helmet with a shield.

I also prefer the flip up style because during stops you can get more air, drink and even eat some snacks easier. Also, chatting during off-road route finding is much easier.

I guess the main reason is that I have glasses and taking the helmet off and putting it on means removing my glasses both times. Easier to just flip the helmet up during the shorter breaks.

Forgot to ask... sounds like you are a new rider so I assume this is your first helmet? May want to shop local and try some on. Helmets are well known for crazy sizes and are quite different between brands. One brands large is another brands medium. A bad fitting helmet is no fun at all.
