What brands of helmets do you think are better for going 1) over or 2) under?

Right now I have a black Smith Maze and I look like an astronaut when I go over the helmet (I put on the ear muff attachment when I go over the helmet too). When I go under, I take off the ear muffs and inside padding and wear a beanie instead. Its still weird though, the helmet slides around just a little bit = unsafe.

i have a smith maze and i have the same issue..with the ear pads and goggles over, i look like maverick from top gun. when i take out the padding and wear a beanie with the goggles under, it looks alot better. with my bern baker helmet, i still think it looks a little better underneath, but it definitely has a lower profile and just looks better with the goggles overall..under or over. i tried them both, and i can go either way. i like having a beanie on when i take my helmet off but i also dont want to compromise the protection my helmet gives me by wearing it improperly
