    Comfortable & Straightforward to use

    Comes with two separate mounts for your GoPro camera, both of which are straightforward to use. The QuickClip uses friction to grab the fabric at the back of a baseball cap. For best results, you'll want a hat that hugs the head. (The photo shows a hat that fits too loosely.) For adjustable caps, attach it to the fabric of the cap itself (as shown in the photo), NOT to the strap that adjusts the size. The body of the clip has a gentle curve to it and a firm, spongy cushion that rests against your head. The head strap gives an even more secure fit and, in my opinion, is even more comfortable. I expected nylon webbing (think dog leashes or luggage straps), but the adjustable bands are made of very stretchy, breathable elastic with zig-zags of anti-skid gripper stuff on the inside (think pajamas with footsies or and t-shirts with puff-paint designs on them). The puff-paint-like gripper stuff holds on to hair quite nicely without constantly working its way to slip upward and off the head. (I have coarse, thick hair and don't use hair product. Your results may vary.) I expect it would also hang onto the clean, smooth surface of a helmet with ease. At the front (where the camera mounts) and rear you'll see a piece of plastic, about 1.5 inches square, and these are also gently curved for your head. The rear one has the same spongy padding material as the QuickClip. The puff-painted elastic runs through slots in the front piece and actually works quite quite well as padding against the forehead. Works well over a cap or dew rag for other comfort options. Reasonably priced when compared to some of the other accessories. Great for first-person shots.

    Awesome Headstrap!

    Sure, you'll look like a dork with this strap on your head and the GoPro camera mounted on it... but you won't care about that when you see the great POV footage that you are able to capture, and when you realize that the headstrap mount is very durable and reliable. Adjustable to fit most anyone, the strap is very secure and will not let you lose or drop your valuable camera. It is also easy to wear over a hat, which is my preferred way. The adjustments to tilt the camera are excellent and make this mount truly valuable. Perfect for situations when you want that POV footage and don't have another mounting solution available. Folds down very compactly and is easy to keep with you at all times. The Quick-Clip is a great little idea, and it was the reason I bought this set. Its stated purpose is to attach to the lower rim of a cap, like a baseball cap worn backwards. But it has many other possible uses, and increases the versatility of use for your GoPro camera. I love it!

    Love and Hates the Ring (Around My Head)

    I felt it was comfortably uncomfortable to wear. I wore this rig to a concert, strapped around a straw hat on my head. I would forget at times it was up there until I went to lean forward and felt the weight of the GoPro camera. I also found the strap to situate the camera at angles that constantly had to be readjusted physically for my specific use case (trying to record a concert w/elevated stage from a GA pit area) and/or I had to keep looking down at the mobile app to tell if it was capturing its intended video target area; you could adjust the strap tighter but then it would feel like a vice is tightening on your head. In addition, I must say I personally felt like a huge dork wearing this thing and people seemingly felt awkward with me having it on, whether it was recording or not. Overall, I want to love it as I love the idea but I kind of hated the tangible product and ultimately returned it.

    I recently went kayaking on the surf side of south padre island. I knew a storm was coming in so I figured it would be the perfect time to put my go pro with head strap to the test.....wow- the strap itself was really comfortable . The strap material is a really soft mesh and doesn't snag at your hair as do other head straps... This is including with the weight of the camera. That was one of my main concerns . A priority concern however was if it would actually stay on or not...and it totally did! Not only was the water extremely choppy but I was coming back in to shore at an angle...(super rookie move)...and Boom! I got a side hit and flipped over twice in the water...my go pro headstrap that was comfortably fit on my head totally held on like a champ and kept me from loosing a $400 camera! Five Stars for this strap is totally called for. Way to go Go Pro !

    I have a couple of them just in case I break one. They are very durable and do everything they advertise to do. The mount will adjust to any head size. I have the chest mount too but I enjoy this better because it gives a true pov. I've put mine through all kinds of environments. I've used the mount with my go pro to snorkel in the Cayman Islands and Jamaica, did several mud runs like the tough mudder, did the bull run and got some good footage of the bulls chasing me. I also use it to capture great angles when I go shooting and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to capture great footage without getting in the way much. I always clean it after each use and hang dry it to keep it in the best shape. I wish they had this stuff around when I was overseas. Perfect for recording ANY situation. ;)

    Great accessory

    I love this accessory! Without this attachment my GoPro was just like any other camera. It lets you be active and gives you good versatility/functionality while wearing. I would recommend this to anyone with a GoPro as a great first accessory so you can get the full benefit of your camera. That being said, I'd love to see GoPro come out with an accessory that is a bit more all-inclusive. Having to detach the base all the time to swap out attachments can be a pain and there are sooooo many plastic pieces. You need a huge bag to carry them ally, which is a little annoying. I'd gladly pay a higher price for the convenience of a unit that combined the attachment capabilities of the head strap, chest strap, bike handlebar attachment, car dashboard attachment, and maybe some others.

    Used the smaller one on the bill of a baseball cap

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Haven't used the large part yet but I like having using the smaller piece on the bill of my baseball caps for a first person view. The camera is semi in front of your eyes but even then it's not hard to see what's in front of you and gives you a pretty realistic view of what you're seeing for later when you watch it. Not saying you should drive or operate moving vehicles like that but if you're just doing an activity that you're not in danger of hurting yourself or someone else, and don't need to react quickly to anything coming towards you, then wearing it as mentioned above would be good. Think more "spectator", like someone on a tour or just observing cool things, versus action sports.

    Fairly secure, a little shaky.

    I have wanted one of these to do some POV shots, and it worked for it. One minor drawback is that it is a little unstable, resulting in some shaky . I found that I had to really tighten it down so that it wouldn't detract from the footage, making it a little uncomfortable. Another problem I have found (and this my just be my inability to use things), is when I tighten it, the plastic piece ends up on the side, making it even more uncomfortable. I used this when I went out to Lake Huron and free dove a shipwreck 30 feet underwater. The footage turned out very well, and it didn't move around when wet. I haven't really used the hat clip very much, mainly because I don't wear hats very often. Overall, this is a good product!

    Great Accessory for the go Pro Camera

    This head accessory is a great way to mount the go Pro camera for a hands free option. Wherever your head turns, the camera goes with it and sees what you see. The mount has a swivel that can angle the camera downward to account for it sitting above you eye sight. This is an important option. If you are at a distance from your target it will work just fine if facing straight out and flat, however, as you move closer to your target, the target begins to move toward the bottom of the camera. As you get closer the target starts to drop out of view. So it is necessary to lock the angle slightly downward to account for this expected drop. This will help keep the target at the center of your screen as you move closer to it.

    I bought this to go with my hero 3. I got it to use while snowboarding, as an alternative to mounting on the helmet, as I don't usually wear a helmet all the time on the mountain. It worked fairly well as an alternative but I found myself just holding the camera after a few runs bc no matter how tight I made the straps, 1 fall and the camera and heads trap went flying. This happened every time, regardless how hard or soft I fell. Just for that reason, I prob won't be using this particular mount again. Also, it does move around on your head a lot while riding and causes the videos to be shaky as a result. If I were you, I'd prob just get a helmet and mount it on that. That's what I will be doing from now on

    This is a great highly adjustable head mount which is flexible, tight and secure allowing for really great smooth head shots with the Hero camera mounted firmly. I have a motorcycle helmet mount also which is secure also but this is great for hands free operation when no helmet is worn. The no slip. highly adjustable rubber coating helps make it stick like glue yet super fast easy on/easy off. I have used it for a variety of applications. What I like is that it is yet another modular tool for mounting the camera. I also have the baseball hat clip mount which is great for low impact users when you need a camera at head level but this gear is the best.

    Handy for Hobbies Where a Helmet is Not Required

    All of the mounts in GoPro's arsenal have a purpose and come in handy when a given hobby calls for it; in this case, it serves the need for first-person perspective in hobbies that don't require helmets (i.e. tennis, jogging). I wish that the product could integrate with the Chesty mount (i.e. attach the back of this mount to the shoulder straps of the Chesty) because when I attach a host of extensions to the front of this head strap mount in order to get the first-person/camera looking directly at my face view, the strap starts to fall forward and sink as you jump or run around. Haven't used the clip on a hat yet.

    I needed a head strap for my Nikon Keymission 170, but Nikon doesn't have the same number of accessories as GoPro. Thought I was going to have to do some alterations to make it work, but found an Insignia tripod thread mount that allowed me to use on this head strap. Worked like a charm (with exception of filming a snow tubing run that ended with slamming the wall causing the strap,& camera, to fly off over two other tubers and made for a great video).

    I bought this to use when working on my car and playing sports with my kids. The head strap fits very well and adjusts easy. The mount stays put went adjusted right and the rubber grips feel like they grip well. The only down side is the added clip. It has a curve built into it which is nice but I seem to have problems getting it to sit well on a baseball hat. It could be just my lack of time spent using it, but I feel like I'm always adjusting it so it doesn't come off. Other than that this mount is well worth the money.

    I bought this so I could tape both practice and race day videos. I train on the OKC river with some very enthusiastic paddlers. I used this to fit the camera to the ball cap I wore to train. It is best if you have a second party help you "see" where the camera should be facing. Once adjusted, I didn't have to think about it again until I needed to turn on or off the camera. It felt very secure balanced on the bill of the hat. Didn't feel as secure just on my head alone. Seamed to bobble a bit without the added brim support.

    Depends on How You Use It

    For biking, skating... this may be great for you and I'd recommend it. The quality is good and product works exactly like it should. I only give it a 3 because if you use it to Dive... it's nearly impossible to get the angle right all the time because you're always moving your head to look up, around, down. Takes a lot of editing later on. Also tends to slide off your head and with no floating design and a black strap, you might lose it. (I know divers who have). Tuck it under your hood and you may be good to go. Maybe they could make a more dive friendly version?

    The quality,material, build is great but the reason for the 4 star is the actual use of the head strap. In the right situations having the GoPro strapped to your head can be hands free and an awesome pov but if you're in a situation with running or quick movement it will make your video really shakey. Unless the video being shot is slowed down or edit it will not look as smooth as the one watched on YouTube hahahba. Really it's the problem with the GoPro not having a built in video stabilizer. It's a great product overall.

    The head mount is a decent and reasonably priced accessory for the GoPro. It remains relatively comfortable over longer durations, but still recommend a headband underneath it for extended periods. Once it is in place, it stays in place well. The biggest issue is the setup (when you put it on your head). It is difficult to figure out your desired focal point. You pretty much absolutely need the smartphone app (or LCD backpack) to get this right. Otherwise, you won't know until afterwards if you shot high, low, or just right.
