Protection and comfort with simple/compact design
I've been looking for a new helmet for a long time. This is the first I've purchased that I have kept. It is simple and compact. It is not big and bulky like most helmets that are 2X the size of your head. It seems to over good coverage and protection (though thankfully I haven't tested that yet) while still having good ventilation. The vents in the front of the helmet provide particularly good cooling for my (shaved) head. It fits snugly, especially with the visor attached. Speaking of the visor, I really like that it is easily removed and re-attached. It's nice to be able to clean it (I sweat a lot). I chose the matte blue version with visor. I like the color - it is a little unique without being shiny/flashy. I would (in fact, have) recommend this helmet to friends and family.

Bern Macon EPS Helmet
I got a black Bern Macon helmet for bike riding and I absolutely love it. I ride in Houston, Tx and ventilation is not a problem. Definitely worth the money. I'd say the size fits tight. So if your size falls on the high end of the size range - definitely go one size higher. The EPS helmet is certified for impact. The Brock foam is a everyday "hard hat" and is lighter, but not meant for sports. So if you plan to use a helmet to protect your head, go with the EPS.

Very Good, However...
Make sure to measure your head to get an more approximate size for your head. I thought I was a large. I received an XL size and the helmet is snug. Comfortable to be sure, but perhaps could run on the small size. I received the yellow colored helmet. It is bright and vibrant. I feel more confident with a helmet that is highly visible to traffic. The Macon Summer does just that. I just received the helmet and so cannot attest to its durability, but is looks well crafted. I am happy to be wearing this helmet.
