Yup, same here. My old Caberg flat sucks in cold, it seals the wind out, but there's not enough venting to keep the shield clear w/out leaving it open.

Had an unavoidable ride in 34* rain/snow mix, and discovered that my cheapest stuff actually worked the best:
My $99 Bilt 'Explorer' D/S helmet has a full shield that will close tight over my Oakley ski goggles.
Worn over a Schampa balaclva, to keep my face warm, if i'm moving more than 20mph, it clears almost instantly.

Now, I just need better boots...
