Wasn't sure at first, but then I fell in love.

I have a Polaris RZR and was looking for something to wear while driving it. I wanted something to protect my head, but I didn't want to wear a full face race style helmet.
After doing some research, the Bern helmets seemed to fit the bill.
When it arrived, I found it to be very light weight, just as it was described. However, when I put it on, it was a little snug and what I feared would end up being too tight. The website measurements indicated that I should be an XL and that is what I ordered.
But, since it was close enough, and a couple of people online indicated that their helmet was snug at purchase but that it fit better and better as it was worn more, I decided to keep it and try to "wear it in."
So, I did what any weird person like myself would do. I wore it while working out for a couple of days while I was doing my T25 workouts. And, sure enough, after a couple of days, it fit perfectly.
Next, I took it out riding during a fairly hot day. After a few minutes of noticing it on my head, it just simple disappeared. I barely noticed it until I paid attention to how cool it was keeping my head, too.
Bottom line, I really like this helmet. It fits perfectly. It's very light weight. It doesn't make me look like a mushroom head like DOT helmets do. It breathes well to keep me cool. A winter kit can be purchased and installed for cold weather use. And, the little flip up visor is nifty. I recommend this helmet.
