Matching helmet with goggles

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi all.

 

Baught theese goggles some years ago, now is the first time I'm going to buy a helmet.

So I was wondering, what color on a helmet would match theese goggles? :) (sorry for my bad English)

Welcome to EpicSki.  What you need to worry about before color is how the goggles will work with a helmet.  Not all goggles will work with all helmets, meaning some combinations will be uncomfortable and some will cause the goggles to fog.  So you need to go to a shop that has helmets and try on what they have with your goggles.  Since those are Scott goggles, your best bet is likely to be a Scott helmet.

But... Do not assume that all Scotts will work, either. Depending on your face, there may be gaps above the goggle top edge and your helmet (the dreaded "gaper gap") or the sides of your goggle and the helmet. The wider those gaps, the more skin is exposed to cold air, a major deal when the winds are howling and it's -7 F excluding the wind chill.

I have lots of goggles from lots of makers and have never had a problem getting them to work with several different helmets. Gaper gap is usually due to a poorly fitting helmet, so it would be a good idea to take the goggles with you to buy a helmet as a way of checking the fit of the helmet. Some helmets work better at holding your goggles when they're up on the helmet; if your goggles have sticky plastic on the inside of the strap that won't be an issue. I have a Smith Variant Brim that matches the blue on the strap and lens of your goggles but I don't think they make that color any more--which is why I got the helmet cheap.

Black...goes with everything.

Smith is a good guess.. but you have to really try it out.  I've found some combos crunch my nose and its uncomfortable.

 

As far as color... BLUE ALL THE WAY !!!!!!
