I always wear a helmet, skiing, biking, and motorcycling.
It is true that some helmets are more popular and there for more expensive, without added safety benefits,
but, when shopping for motorcycle helmets I found that most helmets have an impact rating. It seems that the higher the impact rating, the more money it costs.
If I can find that rating information, I'll post it here.
When it comes down to it, its more about the fit and coverage. If it doesn't fit right and cover your head properly, it will not do it's job.
All in all, find what's comfy for you and covers your melon well and you'll be fine.
