Bern Baker or R.E.D mutiny

I was wondering which of these to get to protect my noggin. Both look similar so im not worried about looks but i would like to see any pics you have of you wearing them so i can get a good idea. I am also open to other suggestions for helmets if you think they are better.

i picked up the mutiny at sierra at the end of the season. they look a lot a like so i picked the mutiny for $45 over the bern for $90. apprears to be a pretty nice helmet tho i havent worn it on the slopes yet.

They are basically the same thing, so I would personally just buy the cheaper one.

Bern Baker is sized smaller than R.E.D Mutiny. I got a L in Baker before and it was very tight and uncomfortable, got a large Mutiny instead and it fits perfect. Later on tried a Baker XL at the store and it fits pretty good as well.

I'd go for the Bern if you skate or anything. The Bern is a true dual season helmet, the R.E.D. may claim to be, but they look really dumb if you try to wear it to skate.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

aren't berns not 'real' helmets hence they're marketed as 'hardhats'? they dont meet some spec in order to be called a helmet i think.. not too sure. if you're getting a bern, get the helmet version.

I bought the Mutiny from Sierra and absolutely HATED it. It didn't fit my head well, looked huge on my head, and was uncomfortable, weirdly shaped. I went down to my local shop, and picked up a Boeri helmet for 65% off, fits perfectly, low profile, and 10x better that the R.E.D.

There are two versions of the bern and one is a proper helmet
