Default Goggles under helmets?

Ok this has probably been addressed before, but i was wondering do people take out the padding on the ears? cuz that seems dumb seeing how it keeps your ears warm haha what do most people do?

Because it looks better.
Unless you want a massive egg on your head when you run a beanie under you padding to keep your jack flappers warm then fuck the padding off. Padding isn't needed when you have a beanie in there , the beanie does what the padding does but better. The shell is the only thing protecting your head for splitting open like a watermelon.

Goggle's on the outside looks stupid , Cluttered and only someone as cool as shaun white can wear them out there. It looks much better to have them on the inside.

Earflaps look chat , so does earflap headphones , bluetooth thingo's , smith helmets , pro-tec helmets and burton helmets. They all bite the big one

I keep my ear pads on. I can't wear a beanie under a helmet - too damn hot.

I took out all of the padding and wear a beanie underneath my helmet. Personally, I think it looks cleaner than wearing the googles outside, but thats just my opinion

some people think goggles on the inside looks better. some people think goggles on the outside looks better. it's a personal preference and suggesting that somebody's personal preference is 'wrong' (for want of a better term) is stupider than how anybody chooses to wear their goggles.

I wear my helmet with no padding, a toque underneath that is velcroed to the helmet so it doesnt move around. I also wear my goggles underneath the helmet. Why? because it looks better and gives more room for stickers on the dome.

The padding in the ears on my helmet is a bluetooth headset. So, there's no way I'll take it out. Unless, I need to charge it. Even if the padding over my ears didn't have headphones in it, I still find it more comfortable and warm than a toque.

Grammar is the least of your problems, I'm guessing.

As to the OP, I wear my goggles on the outside, but I don't think I would remove the padding on the ears if I wore them inside. I don't know about you, but when I get cold air blowing into my ear canal, I get a lot of pain. Seems like my ear pads are the only things stopping that.

But it's all personal choice.
