so I'm going to be getting a new helmet for next year, and I like the look of the bern baker hard hats, only thing is I'm worried about how protective the brock foam really is. I'm not a person who crashes alot, but when I do I crash pretty hard, I've gotten 2 mid level concussions and 1 minor concussion in the last two seasons while wearing my smith holt, is the hard hat system protective enough for me? or should I go for the helmet with EPS foam and play it safe?
The hard hat version is way more comfortable, there the only thing that i'll wear now after being knocked out by wearing an eps helmet. If i had a hard hat on i woulda just hit my head hard, gotten up and shrugged it off, but the eps was hard enough that it knocked me out. The hard hat will be just fine you'll be glad you bought it.
Extremely ignorant statement, the brock foam would not have let you "just shrug it off". You would have had the same concussion, possibly worse, and possibly cracked your skull.
There is a reason EPS foam is the industry standard, BECAUSE IT WORKS. It absorbs the energy instead of transferring it to your head (which the brock foam would do).
IMO Bern Hard Hats should not be allowed to be sold, because they mislead people into believing that they provide the same protection as a helmet, that tiny ass sticker on the inside of the helmet is not enough, the fact that people make threads about the difference is proof enough that it is misleading.
Do yourself a favor and get yourself an actual helmet, preferably a POC, you already have 3 more concussions than you should have. Even one is detrimental to your health. I lost most of my season, and gained dyslexia due to a car crash earlier this season, not the way you want to go through a season or life.
My first priority is my relationship with Jesus Christ my savior. I love to ski and do it for Jesus, which just makes it that much better. I pretend im a gangster when i ski, but instead of shooting people up, ill just give them a hug and tell them that Jesus loves them
yeah. the indians really were running shit very well, then we came along and they gave us all their land for like three wooden beads and a handjob and now look.

USE THIS HARD HAT AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT MEET ASTM OR EN STANDARDS FOR PROTECTIVE HEAD GEAR for use in non-motorized action sports. This product is NOT a helmet. It is a HARD HAT. This HARD HAT is intended to offer only minimal additional head protection for non-motorized action sports including, but not limited to skateboarding, biking, snowboarding, and skiing. It cannot protect against all possible impacts which might cause injuries to the head, back, neck, cervix, or spine. For maximum protection, this HARD HAT must be fitted and attached properly to the wearer's head in accordance with the manufacturer's fitting instructions. Read the owner's manual for proper use and fitting instructions. After receiving any impact, this HARD HAT may be damaged to the point that it is no longer adequate to provide minimal head protection against further impacts and this damage may not be visible to the user. If this HARD HAT sustains any impact, it should be returned to the manufacturer for a competent inspection and, if necessary, be destroyed and replaced. Never modify the HARD HAT in any way. Prior to each use, inspect the shell, impact absorbing liner, retention straps and hardware. Do NOT use the HARD HAT if any part is damaged or does not operate properly.
NOT FOR USE IN MOTOR SPORTS OR MOTORIZED ACTIVITIES
This is the warning sticker in a hard hat. Any one else laugh at how useless this "helmet" turns out to be? I dont get how a company could even get this out on a market.
People argue the hard hat is able to take multiple impacts because of the liner, but if you read this, "After receiving any impact, this HARD HAT may be damaged to the point that it is no longer adequate to provide minimal head protection" the whole argument falls apart. I thought it was pretty important to underline that last bit of information as well.
listen.. yes helmets help.. but honestly the main purpose of head gear is so u dont split ur head open on a hard surface.. i was skiing in just a bandana and split my head and there was blood everywhere and i had to get stitches... if i was wearing a bern hardhat (i own one) i would have been totally fine and gotten up and laughed it off. i still got up and laughed but soon realized there was blood everywhere haha
the best skier in the world is the one having the most fun
