Smith Helmet/Goggle - Looking for experienced users reviews

I have issues with goggles fogging over in the all conditions - for example on Sunday I fogged and froze my goggles inside 3 miles when air temps were -27F. I have high quality double-lens snowboard goggles, more than one pair, and they all fog over. I'm comfortable without goggles, but I'd like them for sun protection.

I know there are some goggle-helmet systems that designed to vent the goggles, like:

Smith: Smith Optics Helmet Technology | Smith United States

POC has something similar.

Please let me know your experience if:
  • you have one of these systems
  • you ride sub-zero temps
  • and you fog over most other goggles/glasses.

Thanks!
