Casco Viper is similar to the MET Parachute, but the chinguard is supposedly more substantial. It is removable as well.
Im scared to ride techy stuff since fall and operation on skull.
I snapped my scapula, now I'm much more wary. taken 12 months to feel like I'm getting my mojo back.
just ride what are can - maybe see it as an opportunity to explore more scenic or urban routes. Might be worth looking at the sustrans site.
No doubt given time confidence will come back. ime.

do either of them meet Downhill lid standards?
The Viper and Parachute are no where near DH standard of helmet. I've had a couple Parachutes and a Switchblade before them.
I ride with a MET parachute all the time unless it is going to be a purely gravity day. IMO it offers more protection than a normal helmet (if its a massive crash then I don't think it would fair well, but I think it offers enough to warrant wearing it.
I wouldn't mind trying an Urge Archi, though it looks a bit too much for normal riding.
