Several companies have "good" helmets, including Giro, Smith, RED, Bolle.
What's right for you is very much a fit issue; try them on because there are differences in fit and sizes between these companies even if the quality is similar. Just don't get a pointy one.
There are lots of goggles by Oakley, Spy, Dragon, Electric, Smith, Anon, Scott. I'm not familiar with the previously mentioned Zeal.
I suggest try lots of goggles on too; there are differences in comfort (padding), range of vision, and ventilation.
