^Agreed. I got hit on the lens in this vid right at the end:

Redux Open-play at Xtreme Paintball - YouTube

This was my first game out with it and it performed flawlessly the rest of the season.

Yeah, I actually placed an order right when I heard they closed their doors. Tried to get two replacement lens protectors.

My contour roam has gone through hell. A tough mudder, several firearm shoots, and paintball on paintball. The thing has been shot at more than multiple times. There's a small hairline going through the lens protector, I generally wouldn't care, but I have another tough mudder and I don't want it compromising the waterproof feature.

Freaking $70 on amazon and this was only $10 from contour...

Yeah, I was worried I might crack mine with how much I use it, so I got the waterproof case in case it ever happened... As I couldn't get the lenses either.

Once they start making parts again, that part will be cheap again. Typical capitalism, when you have something everyone wants, and it is very limited supply, you can charge what you want! someone will likely pay it, if they "have to" have it.


Has anyone done the hack on the older roams to make them work like the roam 2? Does it work well?

I've been afraid to try it... But, I wonder if my editing program would like the newer file format better. As when I get lots of clips going it bogs down my pc.

This is great news, I hope they make more replacement mounts soon too. I obliterated my helmet mount in a snowboard crash this winter.

last week got hit at the center of the lenses in two different occasion about 20 to 30 feet away and did not have any issue. when i got home just rinse it under the sink to remove the remainder of the paint.


had a protective lens on it but that feel off earlier in the day.

I typically carry one extra tube and give them 1 ball from it.

I'm an *** like that.

What kind of mount do you need? I probably have extras...

Hey Carter, did you try out the roam2 update trick? I'm curious about this.
