Okay, I just got a new phone, and as I removed the little protective film cover for the screen, I realized that it left no residue and thet it didn't distort images. I thought that, if adapted to our mask lenses, you could put them on the inside to help prevent fogging (I an't see that kind of plastic fogging up) and on the outside to help clean your mask in between games (specifically, a mask hit- you could just peel the film off, then replace it).

There are flaws:
1- These would need to be made for the uncanny number of lens shapes available.
2- They would need to be sold in packs, probably with at least 5 in each.
3- Wipers could use these in un-reffed games to clear a mask shot.

Anyone got any ideas? I think it would work, but I'm not sure.
I'm adding a poll to try to catch any Admin's eyes if this turns out well.
I did a quick search to try to find an idea like this one, but didn't see anything.

One way to try this, check you hardware store, I bet they have sheets of really thin plastic with a paper backing (for protection). When you peal off the paper, it has kind of a static cling. Try putting it onto lenses that are not concave (like profilers, those would not work), see what you get.
This does sound like an interesting idea.

If this does work, I bet it would be very similar to a double pane lens, just a cheaper route, that is not permanent.

Motocross riders use these during enduro and moto-x races. You can find them for real cheap. Like $5 for 50 or something very close.
I am amazed that I spend countless hours on this site yet only post during a small percentage of that time.

I just looked, and they would work on some masks, but I'm just wondering about simple, clear films that could be made for all available masks.

seems like it'd be a good idea...unless you got paint that seeps in between the skins. if they could develop them to be sealed it'd work great.
If you are a Christian paintballer, put this in your sig

Okay, so at moment, it's 9-0 in favor of trying this... So, anyone know where you could get a large roll of film like this?

Nah dude a bunch of the sticky sheets of plastic on cellphones have a very very trace amount of adhesive, its not just static, but its a small enough amount that the residue left is microscopic. The only fault i could see with this is that, as there is a very trace amount of adhesive, you would eventually have to wipe the mask itself down with something similar to goo-gone or just plain soap/water for awhile. Mind you it would probably not be until at least 100 sheets, but by that time you should have changed the lens itself from taking face shots, even if it was only 1 in 10 shots hit the goggles.

Overall, this is a great idea, but the applying factor for some lens' would be rather difficult, such as bulbous ones, like grills. might take a normal person 2-5 tries before they get it down without a bubble or mis-placed edge. But, if you can buy them in like 50 packs for 5$, wouldn't be that much of a prob.
