Good all around helmet.
You can use it anywhere, I used it in the water kiteboarding, while riding my bike, good all around helmet. Its light weight and will probably last forever.

The only bike helmet I will wear
Note that this version of the Bern Watts is listed as a "hard-hat". If you want a CPSC certified helmet I believe you want the Watts EPS version. However, I don't think they make the EPS version in the XXL size, which is the one I needed. I bought this to use as a bike helmet for daily commuting. I think all bike helmets look goofy, and the BERN helmets are the only ones I am willing to wear. I am very satisfied with it. The quality is very good. I have only 2 minor complaints. The helmet is a little hot to wear if you are not moving in direct sun. However, once you start moving there is great airflow through the helmet and you cool down quickly. The second issue is that I feel it is a little heavy, although I am getting used to it.

Thank God I found a helmet that fits our family of "melon heads"! My three kids have inherited my size 8 melon. It was impossible to find any cool looking helmet they would wear that fit their heads. The Watts Summer Helmet is the first helmet I have found that fits my cranium like it should. My kids refuse to wear any helmets I have purchased in the past because they were way too small. This helmet not only fits great...but it doesn't make you look like "Gazoo"from the Flintstones. It comes in a variety of decent colours and I really like the built in sun visor. Although I bought this helmet primarily for cycling, I plan to use it for snowboarding as well. Quality and design superior to any others I have tried. We are all very satisfied with this helmet.

Bern means quality and innovation!
The Brock foam liner that Bern uses in the Summer Watts helmet is a marvel. It truly breathes well and it works. This is the only helmet I will wear for my Summer riding.

I would recommend this helmet to anyone who wants to get away from wearing the standard looking bike helmet. It is lightweight and is the most comfortable mountain bike helmet I have used thus far. An added bonus that I didn't read in the other reviews before purchasing was the fact that it comes with the Brock padding which helps with cooling and also keeps you drier than other helmet padding. Another benefit of the style is that it can be used for other outdoor sports. I plan on also using mine while kayaking and rock climbing.
