Where to buy replacement foam?

I have a JT Spectra that my dog got a hold of and he chewed the foam from around the goggles. I searched around but noone seems to sell replacement foam.
If anyone has an idea where I can find some, I would very much appreciate it.
Thanks,
John

Someone on the "old" MCB had posted where they get replacement foam, hopefully they'll see this thread and repost the link.

Dont know bout replacment foam BUT ever considered trying weather striping? Check it out its in the hardware stores or department atsayWal_mart.Costs a couple of bucks single sticky on one sideandnot the other. Usefull stuff..I usedit to replace the gasket around the drivers side doorin my car. May be just what your looking for and its CHEAP. 24 to 25 feet of it for 3 bucks.

My first thought was also weatherstrip but then I recalled that it's fairly firm or if you get the foam stuff that it's not the comfy style. But it sure doesn't hurt to check out a few hardware stores to see.

Another possible source may be ski or dirt motorcycle stores. Goggles for both those sports are not cheap and get used a lot so they may well have replacement foam for them.

If you really get stuck you could cut some soft foam sheet up into strips or cut it to the outline of the lens and use some contact cement to stick it to the frame.

And have you tried emailing JT direct to see if they have replacement foam gaskets?

No, I haven't tried emailing JT, I just searched the web. But the weather stipping or cutting some foam sheet sound like great ideas.

I tend to sweat alot when I play so I might try to find some foam that won't absorb the moisture so much. I played today and when I put my mask back on it was freezing (not that today was really that cold) .
The big problem is that eventually it starts to run down the inside of the lens and I can't see so well.
But, really, thanks for the ideas I will look around and see if I can come up with something that wil work.

To be honest, I'm thinking about trying the V-Force Vantage Fieldvision foamless mask myself, as I sweat a lot. The idea of being able to wipe down the polyseal to clean it is quite appealing.

Try one on before you buy one PJ. The cleanup factor is quite excellent with them, but I find the rubber that goes against your face isn't as soft as it could be, and starts to dig into your skin pretty quick.

Correct, I found the same thing out.

You could always purchase a new lense frame from jt, as the lense frame is independant from the lower mask and ears, if it is a flex series mask.

I actually ordered a green vantage fieldvision from orderpaintball, and 3 months later they sent me a grey vantage with the foam.

My JT is not a flex series, just a spectra. The goggle frame does separate from the mask but it would cost almost as much as a new mask. I have a new mask and wanted to use this one as a backup for later in the day when the other got too wet.
