    Bern Morrison - initial impressions

    Just received my Bern Morrison in the mail. I have not worn it riding; I am wearing it around the house to determine if it's a keeper.

    Initial thoughts:
    • It's snug
      • This isn't necessarily bad. My head sizing was on the fence between the XL and XXL, and I went with the smaller size.
      • It will probably take some getting used to.
      • It feels completely different depending on the pitch of the helmet (angle on head)

    • I have a long head, and the Bern feels deep
      • Comparable helmets like the Giro feature or Bell Stoker felt more shallow

    • It's a little heavy (zipmold foam is dense, but thinner than standard foam)

    The helmet's going back. After an hour of wearing the helmet around the house, there was noticeable pressure on my forehead, which became uncomfortable. I thought about ordering the XXL, but I don't love the tensioning system. The tensioning system only tightens the back part of the headband - it does not tighten the entire band.
