I’m guessing that you make it as your fitting it as you go . I’ll be doing foam to fit better. Maybe a Chen strap.  just need to fit and see how it goes. Play with it . I’ll tell ya I’ve worked with a helmet on and ya don’t want it to be moving side to side y’all will look goofy. Good luck

I think it’s gonna be a matter of what you prefer the feel of. I tried both and like the hard hat liner by far better. Some people swear by foam inserts of some sort. Find people with both and give it a try

I used one once, I did find it digs in after a while, swapped out to a thin piece of foam at the top and a couple of thicker pieces of foam at the sides of the head, much more comfortable and they can be removed and washed having Velcro on them.

Thanks for the input fellow TKs.  I am construction worker by trade wearing hard hat for 99% of the day is normal for me.  Where can I find Foam Pads (tactical style?

Tony hit it on the head.   I have a hard hat liner in all of mine.

I personally use a chin strap with tactical pads, to try and reduce the "Bobble Head" effect to some degree. Good luck!
