protec skate helmet

anybody have any success wearing a protec skate helmet with goggles? homebrewed clip options? i already have a helmet for skating, wondering if i can make it work somehow. wearing goggles underneath seems uncomfortable.
thanks!

the protec classic skate is exactly the same as the classic snow

there is no difference between most skate helmets and snow helmets (other than the goggle clip and earpads)

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

that's what i figured by looking at them. but how can a snow goggle be made to work comfortably with a skate helmet (no goggle clip)? that's more my question. duct tape maybe? heh

hey yea velcro would work...but while typing this i just realized that if you decide to go back to no helmet the velcro might be uncomfortable on your head

What do you do with them when you want to take them off for a couple minutes? i.e. Boiling hot just after a run and waiting in the lift line.

I have the same helmet as you (Protec Skate) and I originally attached screws to the strap holes for my Oakley Wisdoms (A-Frames). I then used dental "pro-ties" to hold the goggles to the helmet. One ball end stuck into the vent hole on the helmet, and the other end hooked onto the screw in the goggle frame. I'll get a pic up if you want. After this, I decided it was easier just to spend $15 to get the Oakley helmet strap, which has rubber grips on the inner side. You might want to try wrapping some rubber bands around the back of your goggle strap for grip.
