    wearing goggles and wind

    hi all,
    i have the smith squad mtb goggles for downhill mountain biking and i noticed my eyes always flutter or squint because their's so much air coming in. it's almost as if i dont even have goggles on. i do wear contacts and normally i dont have issues with wind in my eyes in my normal life. i am wearing a leatt full face helmet also.

    i did notice that the air vents aren't covered with mesh like lots of other goggles and someone on pinkbike also commented on the amount of air ingress.

    could i be wearing them incorrectly? how should i go about positioning them?

    i hate that i might have to buy new goggles despite having a pretty new nice pair of goggles.

    Sounds like you just need to get a little creative with some quality tape (or plastic insert) over those massive vents.
