      I have the gopro hero6. A $400 investment. While I am completely aware the gopro itself is now waterproof (with correctly closed housing doors up to 10m), I like to go deeper than 10m sometimes, and when I don't, I tend to put my camera through pretty "water-violent" situations. In other words, under big waves, tossing up in the air into water, accidentally running into some reef or coral every now and then, etc. Simply put, I put my gopro through a variety of situations that can easily lead to 1) my lens getting cracked by a drop on a rock 2) housing doors becoming unlatched by accident underwater 3) any situation that can scratch/damage the camera or jeopardize its built-in waterproofing. If you're like me and want peace of mind as well as GUARANTEED SAFETY OF YOUR $400 INVESTMENT, this $50 will give you both of those. I never, I repeat NEVER, go underwater without this housing. Even though I know my gopro will be totally fine in a swimming pool, I never take the chance and suit it up before getting anywhere near the water. Do I need to you remind you the gopro is $400??? This housing is not just waterpoof to much lower depths (for you snorkelers/scuba divers out there), but it also protects against drops, scratches, lens cracks. Additionally, salt water is a lot more abrasive and leads to higher chance of damage than pool or fresh water. I dont just recommend this to anyone with a gopro hero 5 or 6, I am TELLING you to just buy it and you'll thank yourself and me later. Regardless of how you use your gopro, buy this housing. It is a must. $50 pales in comparison to having to buy a new gopro.

      Protects camera but fogs easily

      I bought the super suit with my Go Pro Hero 6 to use for a dive trip. The super suit worked as far as protecting my camera. I did 4 dives to ~ 70-80 feet and the camera worked and did not have any issues after. The button provided on the side to cycle through modes was also helpful to switch between photo and video since you cannot use the touch screen underwater when the camera is in the enclosure. However, the suit fogged very very easily. It was frustrating and a waste of time on the trip fighting with it to try and find anyway to get it to defog. I left it in cold water, cleaned it, gave it time to adjust to different air and water temperatures, etc., and I could not get all the fog to go away. I bought some anti-fog pads for my next trip but this is an annoyance to even have to deal with, assuming the anti-fog pads work. I will update the review if the anti-fog pads fix the problem, but it would likely only raise the rating to 3 stars because it is still an extra problem to deal with when it should be easy to just snap on the suit and go.

      Ok, so I decided to buy the Super Suit for extra protection. The housing itself is nicely built, which is expected from a GoPro original product. However, I have a few complaints. First, the locking mechanism isn’t really sturdy. Every time I shut the housing, I fear I’m gonna break it (the black clasp). But once it clasps, it’s on tight. Secondly, I wish GoPro would have added the screen protector on the skeleton door (similar to the one that was on the Hero 4), so I can utilize the the GoPro’s touch screen. Although, the Hero 5 is waterproof, I’d still would like to have that feature for the extra protection for the glass. Other than that this is a great housing.

      Additional protection for the camera when....

      ...in and under water. I purchased the suit as I wanted to use the Go Pro in and around my pool. Go Pro cameras are not supposed to require this extra level of protection (they are supposed to be okay in water up to depths much lower than my pool goes) but I did not want to risk depending only on the Go Pro claim of water resistant. I also read a few reviews where people had stories of water creeping into their Go Pros. Very happy I purchased this case, and the camera is fairly easy to insert in this case once you get used to attaching / detaching the lens cover (which must be removed for the camera to get in to the case). Definite must if you will be around water and want some additional peace of mind.

      This "suite" worked well with my GoPro Hero 5 Black. I needed to remove the GoPro lens cover which was hard to do. Also, the instructions did not mention that I needed to do that so I wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out. I was not going deep so actually I didn't need this housing but I appreciated the extra protection and peace of mind it gave me. I would assume this would legthen the life if the camera as well. Also, I could clearly see the images using the display on the back of the camera. A handy feature.

      Why would anyone take for granted that something is waterproof at a certain depth say 30 Meters?Who goes diving with a tape measure ? Why take the chance on a $500.00 action cam any where near water ? Why risk the possibility especially in salt water that nothing will happen ! Don't be Cheap ! GET THE HOUSING ! Your videos will thank you for it(Get the underwater correction filters as well) Remember "Murphy" or" The Titanic is Unsinkable" /

      Worth owning

      Good way to give your Hero 5 black some extra protection. There are 2 issues that take some getting used to though. You get an extra set of rear doors that have openings in them in case you want to improve your audio quality (the total enclosed super suit with solid rear door pretty much blocks out sound). It takes some practice to pop the rear door on and off. Also, you must twist the camera's lens protector off before the Hero 5 black fits into the super suit. It looks easy to do, but actually takes some practice. Google it and watch YouTube videos. Still worth owning!

      Far superior to the last dive housing

      Disliked that I had to buy another dive housing but, at least it is far superior to their last version. I had two of the last ones because the buttons would stick, they wouldn't function correctly after around 65+ ft of water or so, etc. So far, great housing. I wish they didn't scratch so easily or had a silicone sleeve to protect the edges underwater so I didn't have to worry about it while its clipped to my BCD and dive lights, during drift diving and in my dry suit. Sometimes, you just can't avoid having to let something go. Overall, great product!
