Iv teathered my mask to the helmet so although you do have to remove the mask to remove the goggles
It's not gotta be held, it just hangs.
you can put goggles up and re attach mask if you'd want.
Will be my first season with the helmet so I guess I'll have a better idea how good it really is come jan.
I'll post an update when I'm back from Austria in a few weeks!
