Bern Men's Macon Helmet
While the Bern Macon Helmet for men gives a nod to skate styling, this winterized snowboarding helmet is all about safety with thermal comfort. It's made with an ABS shell that's thicker than most snowboard helmet designs. The larger ABS shell is specifically designed to accommodate an open cell Brock foam. Brock foam allows more air circulation than conventional snowboard helmets, so it helps keep you cool and dry. There is one trade off: The Macon does not meet the same action sports head protection standard as cycling or kayaking helmets made by Bern. This half-shell helmet will protect against low-force impacts and possibly prevent concussions when hard foam helmets cannot. The Macon features seven vents that passively pull cool air through the front of the helmet as warm air is pulled out the back vents. The ear pads are removable, so you can enjoy extra venting comfort while riding across sun drenched snowfields in the early summer.

Love the winter knit
I got this helmet mostly because it comes with the winter knit. I ride my bicycle all year round and the ears get cold if you don't have something on under your helmet. The winter knit inside here not only keeps my ears warm, but it also makes the helmet fit much more snug and keeps the straps from digging into the sides of your jaw so much. The first time I put it on, it was too snug, but after a couple of day breaking it in, it's reached a perfect point between comfort and fit.

Gave as Gift , Receiver Well Pleased
I bought this as a gift, in the summer. So, I am unable to fully rate how it performs at its job. When we get on the slopes will know. It feels just like any other helmet so I have high expectations. I can rate the style, delivery and customer service. Style and delivery were exactly as anticipated. The flannel lining can be unsnapped and taken off with is nice in case it gets too warm. The costumer service was excellent. I called with some questions and the operator gave me everything I needed to know to make the correct purchase. So, I would purchase a product a from this company again based on what I know so far. You should too.
