lowest profile helmet/hardhat

I'm looking for a helmet or hard hat for protection against minor bumps dings cuts and so on. I know no helmet will protect you in more serious knocks so I'm looking for the lowest profile that fits me well. Just bought a red mutiny (fits the best out of protec and sandbox) without much research and now I'm thinking of returning it and ordering a berns watts/baker . Input?

Lol forgot to mention. It fits best out of protec and sandbox lol. I didn't get to try on the bern or smith models I'm also looking at because the shop that I stopped at doesn't Carey them .

Smith Maze was lowest/lightest for me. Didn't fit as well.

Give Giro a try, the revolver fit SUPER well or the bern hard hat...SO COMFY.

well, try the others before you take the mutiny back. I don't like the hard hats because they are ...hard hats, not helmets. They won't do much for your head on impact

Well you haul ass, this is a fact.

The poster is looking for a helmet for minor bumps and dings, which I took to mean, you know, skateboard type injuries or shit that happens in the park. I think a hardhat is better for that, as there's less "bell ringing" and chance for concussion. You can also bonk it multiple times. Real helmets are one and done.

You won't bow when you read that I DIDN'T read the differences between the re:flex malavitas and the cartels (man....I brought this to three threads....we'll leave it here). We're even.

One quick warning on the bern helmets - they run about a size small, so order one size larger than you would normally get.
