Default Goggle silicon beads?

Sooooo.. I got a pair of the M2 Landviks for Christmas, and they are the absolute tits. My SINGLE only complaint, is that there is no silicon bead on the inside of the strap to prevent slippage. I remember reading somewhere on here buried in a thread on how to do the silicon bead yourself, but I've been looking for the past 20 minutes and haven't been able to find it >.<

Anyone know what product you need to do the silicon strip or beads? It's just a pain because my Red Mutiny has the brim, so in order for me to seal it I have to keep it above the brim, but sometimes it will just slip right off.

Thanks for the help guys, I appreciate it!

Good question, I'm looking forward to seeing the responses. My only gripe with the M2's also, a bit disappointing in such an expensive product. I remember it being suggested somewhere to use some double sided velcro but I'd rather use silicon for sure. I can't imagine it's difficult.

1. go to hardware store
2. ask for clear silicone caulk
3. apply thin line to strap (easier if removed)
4. profit

Make sure to let the bead fully cure before using....

Thanks so much guys I very much appreciate it! I'll be heading to the store tomorrow to grab some of the caulk and I'll post up pics to let yall know how it went!

-Shit was so annoying in Killington this weekend because I would put my goggles on my lid for a half second in the gondola and when i would put them back on outside snow would blow into it, instant ice LOL.

caulk might be too thick..... so it would be a pain to work with.

I think you're thinking silicone RTV sealant.

imo, yes.

WHen I use caulk... it's for sealing crevices like... where the bathtub meets the wall...
