Trey, not that I want to discourage you from getting an open face helmet, but this is what I looked like the day after the last time I wore one. Echo helmet with brand new Haro mouthguard.
(IMG:http://www.hrpdesigns.com/TheWreck.jpg)
The mouthguard basically slid under my chin and my glasses went through my cheek. Mainly it was just scraped up face, but I did need 13 stitches to close up a few holes left from my glasses.

I suggest the Full face, which before that wreck I would never have said.

If the picture worked it should be a picture of my helmet after a crash last weekend. If this would have been an open face helmet my face would still be on the track. The visor came down over my face and all I got was a small cut on my nose.
I would seriously think of full face

I was on a bike racing a Redline cup qualifier. I was coming up on another rider when he got squirly and fell my way. Our handlebars came together and I went over the front of the bike landing on my head and sliding several feet on my helmet. Jumped up ok but couldn't get my visor back up and couldn't see. The visor was stuck over my face. Only got a small cut on my nose and scraps on my wrists and legs. Nothing serious

Yowch guys! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif) I'm suddenly reminded of the motercyclists' fist rule of helmets: Open face = closed casket.

I ended up going to a motorcycle shop and bought a motocross helmet as none of my LBS' had an XL and I needed the helmet that week.

They are made by HJC and DOT cert. It was 129.00+tax. I feel if they are good enough for someone riding motocross it would be better protection for BMX....especially as I'm only getting back into this after 17 years.
