Full Face BMX/DH style helmet for creeking? opinions-advice

I am interested in buying a full face BMX/DH style helmet for creeking.

It seems like it would work well if you removed the padding.

Water issues seems to be the only problem.

A lot have a carbon kevlar shell and closed cell foam underneath.

check the post on the or wrap up, one of the companies is making a whitewater full face with a mask that can detach in case of entrapment, sounds cool.

FnA makes a helmet with a full face mask. Looks alot like a BMX/motocross helmet. They look pretty sweet, and are made for whitewater.

FNA fits the bill. It is full face and is carbon fiber with bomber strength. Do a search on boatertalk about some of the options. I saw pics of the removable full face helmet, and I wasn't too impressed. It looked like an ORC helmet from lord of the rings.
