I just bought a helmet and have yet to use it, but I noticed I could really go either way. Seems like over helmet is more convenient but it seems more comfy for me when I wear it under on the beanie.

My only concern with goggles under is safety. But I'm not a helmet engineer

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

It is a safety thing. Because most of the time people who do this take out all of the padding to make everything fit. I'm almost positive when I got my Maze helmet, the pamphlet/instructions specifically warned against going under the helmet.

My helmet is designed for the goggles to go under or over, so I guess safety isn't an issue.

I wear mine over as I lift them quite a lot, though as they're not great goggles they do lift a little on the sides of my face.

I wear the goggles under the helmet because the clip on the back of my helmet fell off and I lost it. I actually went to a shop and they ordered me a new one. I am still wearing the goggles under the helmet. I like it that way.

I normally don't even wear a helmet. A nasty out of no were fall, almost like I was pushed over caused me to start wearing one again.

I have a Bern helmet and those tend to be the type people wear over goggles. Bern helmets are more simple and lack all the crap around the ears. Wearing my helmet over the goggles works will with the model of helmet I have.

Same here, my Oakley Wisdoms came with shorter strap (you can buy longer one if you would like to wear your goggles over the helmet though).

I decided on wearing my Crowbars under the helmet as well, as I often take the helmet off when on the lift, to minimize the fogging without taking my goggles off (I'm sweating A LOT). This way I'm able to cool myself and release some of the heat.

Under...there's no advantage either way. Under looks better IMO.

Over the helmet for me. It's just much more comfortable over the helmet, in addition to being able to rest the goggles on the helmet and not have the helmet push down on the goggles or the goggles slipping on to my nose.

Honestly I think it all depends on how your head is shaped. I think under looks better, but for the life of me I can't get it to work. My head is already big, and I can't get a beanie to fit under, then it just looks ridiculously big with my Smith Maze (which already doesn't fit right cause of my long head)
