Agreed! I am a huge proponent of riding in a full face whenever I'm doing anything aggressive. I've got a TLD Stage and can't believe how well it breathes. It gets really hot down here in the summer (Arizona) but aside from taking it off for hike a bike or strapping it to my back for a dirt road climb that isn't open to cars I have no complaints and the extra confidence I get riding harder trails on it is great. I use my Bontrager Rally MIPS half shell for more pedally mellow rides (best helmet ever and the magnetic mounts for lights are a game changer) but for anything gnarly or gravity oriented more protection at a slight heat cost is a no brainer. I've had a Fox ProFrame and a Bell Super 3R and the stage is on another level when it comes to staying cool. I've never broken a chin guard on a helmet but if that day ever comes I will be glad its there.  Any particular reason why you mount your light on the side of your helmet like that? I feel like that would drive me crazy. Also as far as lights go if you ever want a great self contained light I got a Hangover light and its a perfect self contained helmet light to go along with my ion mounted to my handlebar.
