New to helmets but I'm also eyeing up Berns. At a local shop today, I tried on both large and XL of several brands. In all brands but Bern, large was a perfect fit. In the Bern's, I fit an XL. I guess they run a tad bit bigger.

I'm ordering online and getting an XL. Worst case scenerio, I can wear a slighly thicker head wrap if it's too big. Can't wear a helmet that's too small at all.

I have a 58cm head.

I wear a Medium Bern Watts Hardhat. No beanie underneath. Fits me well.

Does the Hardhat adjust and is their room in there if necessary? I plan to wear a thin head wrap.

I have a 59cm head.

According to their sizing chart:

Quote:
Size (cm)
XS (52-53.5)
S (53.5-55.5)
M (55.5-57?
L (57-58)
XL (59-60.5)
XXL (60.5-62)
XXL (62-63.5)
I'm at the lowest end of the XL. So an XL should work well.

Rule of thumb with Berns: always go a size bigger than your typical helmet sizing. Kinda stinks, especially for people with large heads like me. I'm typically an XL.. but in Berns I'm likely a XXL and that even might be small :/
