Default Oakley Airbrake with Bern Watts

hi - i'm looking at new goggles and leaning towards Oakley Airbrake. Seem like a good fit for me and the lens options seem strong. What i've not been able to do yet is try the Airbrakes with my helmet, which is a Bern Watts from a few years back. Can anyone comment on the fit compatibility of these two?

I have a watts. They fit well. I ended up buying Flight decks though. The field of vision is bigger and they fit great.

Yes, I tried them on and didn't like the optics. the lens made me see pink halos everywhere when looking at the snow.


I was also 100% convinced I wanted airbrakes too until I tried on the Flight deck.

Thanks again ... how are the Flight Decks working out for you? Did you get Prizm lenses and if so do you think a H.I. Yellow lenses is worthwhile purchase? Also, is the non-lens part of the Flight Decks entirely made from foam or something a bit more substantial?
