I have a problem when out cycling with the cold air causing my eyes to tear badly. The solution has been to wear a snowboarder's helmet along with lightweight ski goggles. I own two Trace II helmets and they solve my watery eyes problems almost completely. The Trace II fits extremely well. The back of my head is wider than the front, but the helmet is quite comfortable. The ear pads are also comfortable. After wearing the helmet for 15-20 minutes, my head feels toasty warm inside the helmet. My goggles fit nicely over the dome. Cyclists really never remove their goggles until the ride is over, so this is not a problem. I have had the Trace II and goggles on for as much as two and a quarter hours and found everything is generally still feeling good by the time I take my helmet off. I am very impressed with how this helmet looks and feels and the fine job it does for me stopping the watery eyes problem. I would recommend the Trace II to any other cold weather cyclist. It is a bargain for the money, looks good and performs very well.
