Bern helmet sizing help

for those of you with bern helmets i need help with the sizing. i wear 7 1/4 new era hats which is supposed to measure to 57.7 cm. will a medium bern (which is supposed to go up to 57cm) still fit comfortable because i can save some money if i get a medium one as opposed to a large one or do you recommend spending the extra money to get a large

Like mentioned above definitely go try some on. But I used to wear Mediums in RED and Smith helmets in the past and I wear a 7 1/4 size hat also and I ended up going with a Large Bern Watts after I tried on Med and Lrg and the large felt better for me.

Half hour drive? Haha! I have to go at least 100 miles to the nearest place that could possibly even sell snowboarding stuff. Just man up and drive there. You'll appreciate it later when your helmet fits perfectly.

didn't mean half hour as a long drive i just meant that it's a solid distance that in combination with a snowstorm is going to make me not want to make the trip. thanks for the help to those who actually gave me good info

So your scared of some snow on the road?

Just admit you are lazy. 30 minute ride to support your local shop... Jeez, kids these days.

Think about it, you could wear the helmet on the way back -you'd be much safer then dude. :P
