I never wore a helmet skiing before. After trying some on, I puchased my Smith Varient Brimless helmet online. I ASSUME it fits correctly, after adjusting the rear knob, the brim tops just above my eyebrows, which I read is correct. I bought the medium, the small was very tight. Yet when I put on my 13 years old Smith goggles, they are smashed down covering my entire nose, only exposing my nostrils. To make this comfortable, I must raise the brim of the helmet. Does this mean the helmet is the wrong size? Could it be the goggles? Or both? Unfortunately I bought the helmet last fall and haven't had the chance to use it. It is still in the box. So I am out the money if it is the incorrect size.

Some people bring their goggles with them when trying on new helmets, but your 15 yr old goggles weren't really designed with helmets in mind. I have a couple pair of goggles and some just fit better than others. It might be a good time to upgrade them as well ... and bring the helmet with you to test fit ... :)
