Surely more than once you have considered it, and even commented with your group mates, and it is that the sideburns of goggles "inside or outside the helmet straps" It is the eternal dilemma when we go out with the bike.
Actually, there is no written rule for this, and really many times when we go out in winter and wear tape, neck warmer ... It is easier for us to place them inside, but we have to say that it is advisable to take them outside . We give you 3 Reasons weight for it.

It is more comfortable
When we ride our bikes sometimes there are times when it is necessary to remove them, those cases in which a small bug or water enters (although it should not if the glasses are of quality and with a design to protect our eyes), that is where wearing them outside is much more comfortable.
Some glasses already have a design so that they go outside the helmet straps, even when leaving this question arises.

What glasses do we recommend?
