i would say youre right but in my particular case, there is literally no movement at all with my helmet on and my fact, the velcro on the inside of the helmet from where the earpads were tends to stick to the beanie and hold it in place even better. i realize that riding with a loose helmet makes no sense at all, so i make sure that the fit is correct.

edit: im also a sunglass freak and much prefer being able to take my helmet off without removing my goggles.

Just get a thin balaclava.
i wear an underarmour hood/face masks and a beanie over it...with the Bern Baker it really doesnt get that warm in there, especially with the winter padding removed. Plus sweating always makes me feel like i worked out harder than i probably did lol
