bern baker or watts helmet??? help

So I've narrowed my choices down to the Bern Baker or Bern Watts in hardhat. There basically the same, but the watts has vents on the top.

So what do people think, does the baker look better without the vents or does it matter? Does the baker vent well enough so my goggles wont fog up? Anyone with experience please chim in.

Thanks for your opinions/advice.

We sell them in our shop. I think in the end it comes down to this. if you're a guy who sweats easily or gets overheated easily.. i'd go with the watts.. otherwise i'd go with the fresh n smooth look of the baker heh

(i guess you see where my pref is hah)

Yeah it seems like the preference lookwise is the baker.

I really dont sweat alot, but I do plan on wearing a thin hat under it.

You def want the vents. Then again, not everyone actually rides hard enough to work up a sweat

I have the Watts and definitely would not want to be without the vents.

I had vents all the time now I got the baker.

Fawk the vents, just lift up the helmet a bit from time to time like you do with caps... If its really cold you will end up taping the vents shut no matter how hard you ride.

I haven't been going really fast with my Old style watts on, but the knit liner keeps my head nice and toasty! I'm not sure what they changed with the new Watts, but this helmet rocks!
