Default Smith Varient Brim Helmet/goggle question.

So i have been looking for a helmet for awhile, and went everywhere looking for a good one on sale. Couldnt find anything decided to go to winners to clothes, and they ended up having a white Smith varient, i didnt know about this helmet before, but i tried it on and such, and it seemed pretty sick. I scored the helmet for 60 bucks with tax. Im pretty sure thats a dope deal right? Nowww to continue my search for goggles.

So i looked into that some more and i need some goggles that are for small to medium faces, some are just huge and like clamp my nose bridge and i cant breath haha. Any suggestions on that note.

THanks guys!

That is a pretty good price on that helmet. Where did you find it that cheap? I have a Smith Variant with no brim (which is a bit harder to find).

Also, your question about goggles is a weird one. Big goggles usually have big nose 'cutouts' and small goggle usually have small nose sections (which would pinch your nose more).

Anon Hawkeyes have a fairly big cutout from what I remember... but I do not think they are a small goggle. The nose cutout on the I/OS is decent sized for a "small" goggle.

I got the helmet at winners, i guess they just happened to have em which was pretty sick. And yeah i dono, i have some pretty old school smith goggles, so that may be why, their olddd/

Maybe il just take my helmet and go to my local shop and try some on and see what i like best. Probs my best bet eh? Since i saved so much on my helmet, i can get some nicer goggles.

Yep, take your helm to your local shop and try some on with the helm on. Im using the variant with the Phenom combo. Works well for most med to large heads.

I have a Variant with no brim, and I have yet to find a goggle that does not fit with it. I have Oakley Wisdoms, and A-Frames, and I 've used some VonZipper Phenoms, some Random Anons(both big sphericals, and regular flats), and I've used some old ass Smith gogs. They all fit with the helmet just fine.

I highly recommend the Smith Phenoms or Oakley A frames for a slightly smaller fit.
