    That device makes any strap GoPro ready. I've used it in a backpack strap around chest level to get POV video while walking around. It's minimal, and has a quick release function. Can adjust the tilt of the camera while mounted too, so you can check your settings or captured media on the fly. You can get creative and attach this device to other strap like things - scuba dive gear, boat line... Or even drill holes through something to fit the screws through and make your own (bill of hat, wood planks, whatever. Much more versatile than the GoPro chest mount. Will be great for travelling. Downside is that over time it can rub against your arm from just regular movements. Backpack strap with the clip that goes across your chest could help minimize this issue from pulling the strap away from your arm. Wish the screws for the pack weren't bright blue, I'll experiment with paints to make it less bright.

    A so-so solution

    Pro’s: well made, easy to mount, option to turn gopro in 45 deg. stops when installing camera to mount. Easy cam lock release to remove camera and plate from strap mount. Nice small mount that offers an alternative to the more traditional ways of mounting a go pro on yourself. Cons: Over-all, I had difficulty keeping the go-pro aimed straight ahead. Unlike a chest or head mount, once its locked in place on your pack or bibs strap, you can never get it to point straight ahead as your strap angle to your body is almost never 90 deg. There is no left or right adjustment. Also, pay attention to the angle of the mount vs. your strap. It never slipped on me once set correctly though. Well made product, just didnt meet my needs.

    This last December I was in Iceland, Prague and Rome for vacation. I wanted something I could use my GoPro with without having to hold something the whole time. This was awesome. I was able to walk up a Glacier, tour the Colossium, and walk around Prague and capture it all. I would definitely recommend this. I’m going to be using it during my teams basketball games as well to record them.

    I bought this for the reason it was created and that is to put the gopro on my pack strap. It performed great and really eliminated those shots where my face in the side of the picture. I do with though that in addition to being able to adjust the camera up and down, I was able to adjust it left or right to get a better shot ahead of my. Might not work well with a person with a bigger chest where the camera might be angled outward.

    This mount gets some pretty good shots I use it all the time for fishing but the back of the mount is solid plastic and left me sore in that area for a day or two and the way I fixed it was by putting some pealing foam stickers on the back so I get a layer of cushioning. On that note it's a great mount a little pricy but in the long run it will be worth it.

    this is my go-to mount for the GoPro. I find I use it more than any other mount that I have. Polarpro customer service is top notch This product came with an extra attachment But I did not have the screws necessary for it to work I contacted Polarpro customer service team and they shipped the screws to me free of charge

    I wouldn't recommend this because if you push up any on the camera it will release. The locking mechanism/latch is rounded where it fits into the mount that the camera is attached to which is also rounded which allows this to slide and unlock. I returned this item.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Great for Regular Backpacks. Doesn’t work for Specialty Hiking Backpacks. We purchased it for my son to take on a two week trek through the mountains. His backpack has a padded strap. The strap is to thick for this mount to work properly. I had to strap it on myself with string instead of the screws.
