    For any GoPro user who uses (or plans to use) the camera in water, this is definitely an accessory to consider. I haven't used mine yet but a buddy almost lost his camera in the lake after a kneeboard fall. This little accessory saved him from losing the camera. Obstructs the display is my only complaint. But in the water, adds some 'insurance' and piece of mind to possibly losing your GoPro to sinking to the bottom of any lake/ocean/river. Kinda makes you wonder how many GoPros are resting at the bottom of several bodies of water that may have been saved by this simple accessory? If you don't plan on taking this near water, this one is not for you.

    Floatie

    So I bought this since I'd be in the ocean ... then I bought a vivitar floating hand grip from Walmart. No more need for this floatie. I love the Vivitar hand held grip. By far better than GoPro's floating hand held that was included in my variety pack of accessories that I'd bought (and failed to discuss in that review). It looked like a piece of cr•p compared to the vivitar. So anyway...this floatie will float, but having to change the back door and not having visibility to your touch screen is a big disadvantage.

    "Floaty" is SO cool!

    The Floaty is really fun. It comes with an additional waterproof backdoor that you attach the float to. When in the water, the float holds the GoPro level and allows the entire camera to go beneath the surface of the water. I know it's designed as a "safety" device, so as to not loose the GoPro - but I have found it useful and fun to video while floating! You can get some great video! Just remember to tether it so your camera doesn't get the idea to just take off on it's own!

    You really need this whenever you're near water. The only downside to this is it blocks the screen on the back of the hero 4 silver and hero 5 black. I used this on my hero 4 black which it doesn't have a screen on the back so it was no problem. There is a third party floaty that is better in every way. You might want to check that out but this one works fine for me.

    Bought this for a recent trip to playa del carmen, worked just as I would hope it would and even made a 30' jump into a Cenote just out side the Mayan city of Chiechen Itza. Totally worth the price if you want your GoPro to float. Other ones I've seen that are not the GoPro brand usually last my buddies and I about 1 summer of use. This one seems like it is drastically holding up better.

    The floaty back door is really useful when your near or in water. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars is it doesn't work with additional weight (it will sink). I was using the grip part of the 3-way and it ended up floating. So depending on what mount your using and how much it weighs it might work. Other than that it is a great product in the water.

    Does Not Seem Practical

    We got this for taking on a boat, but ended up not taking the trip. We still have it, however it does not seem to practical for use, as it seems to cover the entire screen area. It may be due to how much buoyancy is needed for it to float, but I feel it could have been executed in a better manner. I will follow up if this changes.

    As I've started to collect various accessories for the Hero 5 Black this was lower on my list. But after using it on the river, and the boat I was no longer nervous about having my GoPro around the water. So far it hasn't been needed but it does give me added comfort when using my GoPro around bodies of water.
