ive been searching in vain for a filter gel for my Emgo goggles. I cant seem to find the right shade of filter gel in anything larger than 3x3 inch square.

I know a yellow green lens for the Emgo goggle exists but I havent tracked it down.

What are others using to make the Hoth goggle lens?

May not be perfect color wise but I can not think of anything else.

There is at least one seller who has two different greens and two different yellows. Maybe a combo of the two would look good. Some ambers look to orange. I found a more yellow one before.

I thikng as you said a compo will work, one inside and one outside of the lense.
My dad used something like that for his goggles and it looks good (maybe a little bite to green but we like it)

Good luck

the green films I found online were just a bit too green/ metallic looking, but i did find a green report folder that looks about right. Im about to cut that to shape and fit it to the original lens to help keep the shape.

Im going to keep looking for Emgo goggle lenses in green but all I see so far is smoke. I know its out there, I just have to find it.
