I was wondering if anyone has one and how the like it. I was also wondering how true to size they are. I have a massive melon,, a little less than 25 inches around. That puts me at XXXL, haha. Which i havent seen any anywhere for that size. I have seen a few XXL and hoping i can fit into that. I ordered a Red Mutiny helmet in XL but it was a little too small. I like to wear my goggles under the helmet instead of around the helmet. Any other ideas or options would be much appreciated. I also dont have many close shops to try them on.
Thanks
Rob

My idea would be to wear your goggles on the outside of your helmet like the rest of us.

Hmm, good idea jason. And i will do that, but it bends my goggles in a strange way that press into the sides of my face. Under the helmet does not do this. Maybe my huge melon or jsut a personal pref.

Get a climbing helmet. Petzl makes a great one that will fit. Not built for wakeboarding, but I wear mine when the temps are higher due to the vents.

I've been looking at the Bern helmets, question for you guys. When you buy them do they come ready to go for snow & wake? Do you have to buy accessories?

It is my understanding that you buy your helmet as "snow" or "wake", the only difference being ear flaps on the snow version. This is based on shopping for a lid myself so I could very well be wrong, and I dont know if you can switch between snow and wake.

looked into them out here and no the snow liner won't fit into the bern wake helmets and you don't really wanna wear the snow liners in the water, so you'd need one for snow and one for wake

I ended up bailing on the helmet idea. Ive gone forever without one and uncomfortable or too small one just doesnt work for me. Oh well. And so people know you can buy directly from Bern. Just shoot them an email and they will respond in about a week or two with a link to there store.
