Go with the market share leaders - Giro 9.9 or Giro Fuse (the latter way,
way cool looking).  However, I'm not recommending them just because of the
way they look.  The Giros are the best backcountry helmets going because of
their super lightness, and you can easily remove the soft earflaps and
adjust the copious venting.  Therefore, you can actually hike in them
without steaming up.  The new Fuse has a neat slide button vent opener.
Downside is that it's pricey.
