Question New Helmet - Has a 'brim' on it.

I bought a Smith Vantage helmet yesterday. It fits well, has a tension adjuster, etc etc. Good helmet, except it has a brim. Didn't think that would be an issue, but when I put my goggles up, they tend to pop right off and end up hanging from the strap clip. Has anyone figured out a solution to this? One possibility would be to place my helmet cam mount just behind where the goggles sit so that they couldn't slide off. Any other ideas?

Hm, that seems suboptimal.

I'm not giving up the helmet, but I am going to fix this.

I actually put my goggles right on the brim, which is probably bad for the foam..
It manages to stay pretty much in place even when I fall, unless I really decide to see what the snow tastes like that day

Everyone I see with that style lid has the goggles on the forehead and the helmet loose enough to push back above it. Seems to be the new fashion trend around here. Personally I'd rather not have my helmet loose and bouncing around but maybe it doesnt feel like that to them.

This is exactly why I didn't buy the brimmed version of the Smith Variant that I purchased recently.

I do this. It works just fine, I keep the goggles fairly loose so i'm not putting a ton of pressure and warping the goggle frame, but still tight enough so they don't fall off my face.
