Goggle and Glasses Compatibility
I was comfortably able to wear both sunglasses and goggles, and didn’t have any issue with either of them not fitting my face or sitting properly within the confinements of the helmet. The matte finish made the goggle strap stay in position, and it seemed to help with the durability and appearance of the helmet.
Extras, Weight and Value
At 458 grams, it’s on the heavy side of things for an All Mountain helmet, but I didn’t really notice the weight while riding with it, which highlights the functionality of the low-profile fit of the Morrison. The $100 price is competitive, and the well-made product and exceptional snap-in liner adds value to this seemingly simple helmet.
I found the $100 Bern Morrison to be comfortable, well-balanced, and it felt like it was part of my head, greatly due to their low-profile design. It felt like it got sucked down onto my head, though without any discomfort or hot spots, and the wrap around design seemed secure and stable. Like all of their helmets (skate, snow, urban), you need to measure your head properly to get a more exact size, since their twist lock fastening system doesn’t offer much adjustment.
The well-padded snap-in liner is a real highlight in this nicely crafted helmet, and it’s easy to pop out for cleaning or swap in their optional winter liner. All the padding is durable, comfortable, well-made and dissipates sweat effectively. It vented adequately, and fits both sunglasses and goggles without interference issues. The Morrison reminds me a lot of the Urge Endur-O-Matic helmet, both have the simple retention system, great padding, and low slung fit.
