    I wear Oakley canopy's with my POC racing helmet. They fit great, but push badly on my nose with my Smith Vantage helmet I wear for regular skiing. So I have Oakley Flight Deck XM's for that helmet.

    Agreed. A lot of companies have "integrated" helmet goggle "systems" now. Thought it was a total gimmick until a year ago when I borrowed a friend's Giro goggles for my Giro helmet. It might be a gimmick, but it felt pretty nice!

    The whole face thing bothers me technically. Your breath needs to go some where and condensation must form and freeze if you are really working it on cold days. Then again, I never where a face mask even on the coldest days and certainly not here in CO.

    I have tried on EVERY smith goggle with my Smith Vantage. None fit as well as my older pair of Oakley Crowbar or current Flight Deck.

    I wear Flight Decks with my helmet and they push down pretty bad on my nose. Literally interferes with my breathing. I'm dealing with it for now because the goggles were pricey but next time I'll be more careful. I tried them on before buying but didn't notice the issue. I was more concerned about the goggle/helmet gap.

    Flight Deck, or flight deck XM? I hate the fit of the flight deck. Very tight on my nose. Love the fit of the smaller cm version.

    Interesting. I've only tried the Giro system. I haven't owned a Smith helmet in many years. Maybe their goggles just don't fit the same.

    I'm just saying you don't have to have matching helmet and goggles brands. You do need to take your time and try on a bunch of goggles with your specific helmet.
    Giro does make some nice goggles, but I personally love oakley. Up until this year that meant I had to have a different brand goggle and helmet, but it's OK because I found stuff that fits perfectly.

    Oh yeah. I never meant that the system had to match. I was just saying that's a good place to start!

    I don't know. Just took a close look and it doesn't say on them.
