509 gear

In the market for a new sled helmet. Going to be open face motocross style with the 509 goggles. Apparently good fit and finish with these helmets? Unless someone knows of other brands that are decent. Not looking for budget stuff. Goggles will have to be able to run the Rx prescription inserts. If anyone can point me in the direction of the best place and prices, that would be great.

THose RX inserts want to fog up anytime it's less then -20. No matter how good they are (same with plain old glasses in a regular helmet)

Contact lens are the way to go if you sled in real cold weather.
