Feels Good, Looks Good
I have been riding with my Bern Watts helmet (summer) for a few weeks now and it rocks! Living in the deep south, it can get pretty hot and humid. This helmet keeps my head cool while looking cool and staying safe. I measured my head right in the middle of the medium sizing chart, and the helmet fits me great. I have no idea it is there. Also, sunglasses slide right on without touching the sides of the helmet.

Exceeded My Expectations
When buying this helmet I was nervous about what size, with a size of 57 I went for the large because I read reviews that it fits snug. The size fits pefrectly, and what the discription doesn't tell you is that it has sink fit which adjusts the padding to the right size. I use this helmet for mountain biking and I love it, and it also doen't look bad. This helmet works for both girls and boys, I am a girl and love the style, and it fits great.

Great Non-Alien Helmet
I love this non-alien looking helmet. The matte grey with brim is a cross between a WW2 helmet and a baseball cap. Looks even better in person. Comfortable, breathable and has a nice muted look. My only criticism is that the brim does not keep out as much sun as I thought it would. But that does not detract from the value for me.

This is my mountain biking helmet!
I own three of these Bern Watts helmets. Two of the Summer Hard Hats and this EPS helmet. They are very stylish and do the job admirably. The fit and look of the "hat" style set them apart from the Giros and Bells of the helmet world. I have yet to crash and break any of these but the build is similar to any that I have used and would trust them to do the job -- protecting my head. I also use this helmet for other sports; skiing and kayaking. The hard foam helmet seems to be more durable than the Brock foam Summer Hard Hats, these tend to get "stinkier" quicker and you need to wash with a good soap. The EPS style is just a quick rinse and scrub of the straps. If you have a large head, i.e. 7 3/4" or bigger, get the XXL if you can find it. I got the XL and removed the soft pads to get a nice sunk-in look. If you like the look of your helmet, you'll wear it!

Good fit, solid construction and sleek design. Most people assume it's a skaters helmet which is a fair assumption. Chose the matte black so the brim appeared to seamlessly transition to the helmet, itself. Comfortable straps. It's snug so if you're on the cusp of a MD/LG I'd recommend the LG. I may swap mine out for that reason but regardless which size you are, it's a solid choice of helmets.
