Rich Wheelerwrote a review of Bern Macon EPS Helmet on February 3, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
After viewing a few videos about the difference between soft foam vs hard foam helmets, I decided my days in a Hard Hat snowboarding were over. The science is out that EPS is much safer. Previously I've been rocking a Macon Hard Hat for the last 7 years. I always wore XL in that helmet. Switching to the EPS, with adjustable band, I would say the following. Yes, the Hard Hat is slightly more comfortable, but I found the sizes comparable. I don't think this fit "small" in comparison to what I was expecting. I'd say it was more true to size. The way the EPS feels it almost seems slightly higher on my head, but I think that is due to the lighter weight construction. The top of my goggle still aligns well with the bottom of the helmet. My favorite new feature is the adjustable band. You really get an exact fit.
I'm glad I made the switch. I use this helmet for snowboarding and biking. When boarding, I wear a balaclava under it.
