Get goggles that fit your helmet, try on a couple pair and look in a mirror. You don't want to see skin around the goggle. Also double lens goggles are a must. I wear oakleys with my Arai helmet.

Get a Ski Masque (trade name) at a ski shop. They are neoprene face masks and work awesome.

If your helmet is a motocross version you'll want to plug the vent hole in the front, I used black hockey tape and cut it to fit the front of my Arai. A snocross lid from say HJC will not need that.

The important is to keep your skin covered, if you have a leak durning a ride some well placed duct tape works wonders so try to keep a roll with you.

Once you figure out what you need you won't be able ride with a full face lid again. Even on really cold days.

I wear the HJC with Scott goggles with the nose guard! The nose gaurd helps alot trust me I forgot it once and have the scar from frost bite. On really cold days unless you are racing WEAR YOUR NORMAL HELEMT !! The moto-cross/sno-cross lids are great for better visibility and if worn right they do not fog up as much if at all. But it is just not worth it when it gets down below 0 if you are not racing!

PJ- I have the EXACT SAME helmet. I wear the breathguard across the top of my nose and I have never had a problem. I wear Smith Cariboo Airflow goggs and have never had them fog except for when I am sweating and come to a stop....the the warm air gets in there. But you shouldn't have a problem otherwise!
