In the link below though, there is a review of your goggle/helmet combo and what I saw that was different was how he has the helmet/goggle strap/lock thing in the back spread out around the clip. I would think this would cause the clip to possibly be pushed together and come undone? Maybe that's what happened with yours? Or maybe somehow this way alleviates your issue?
Smith I/O with Vantage
Exactly, the rubber lock squeezes the two clip pieces together and the strap comes undone. I have no idea how it's not happening to him in that picture on the link you sent. Maybe the rubber lock on mine is tighter than it should be?

I'll keep trying to find that sweet spot where the goggles don't slide off the helmet!
