I prefer white...but don't really care about color.

Most important is to find a helmet and goggles that fit right, and fit well together.

I wear a RED hifi helmet, and dragon DX goggles. Both fitm me well and fit together (ie no gaps)

anon goggles are pretty nice. i have a pair and really like em.

Pro-tec makes great skate/bmx helmets but i have no personal experience with thier snow helmets. They have been in business a long time so i'm sure they are nice as well.

Those products are good separate. As long as they work together, you'll be fine, but I can't attest to that.

I'm got a RED Tantrum with Oakley Crowbars. They work great. There isn't a gap since it's got the little head strip to fill in the gaps though...

helmets & boots are fit items. No matter how much you spent or how cool they are, if they don't fit, it'll suck.

Smith Holt was the only helmet that fit my fat head, even though it wasn't my first choice.

only goggles that seemed to fit with it all was Smith and Von Zipper.

Not bad choices, but if I had got a Giro helmet with Smith goggles without trying them on, I would have been in a world of hurt.

I can't believe that safety has now turned to Fashion Faux Pas. White shoes are now OK after Labor Day, but skin showing between the helmet and the goggles is going to get you on Page Six?

Wow.
