    High Quality & Versatile

    This is a handy little attachment for your GoPro. I got it specifically for a cruise vacation. What was nice is that I could kind of used to wear my GoPro as a watch when running around the boat or at a port, when I wasn't sure if I'd want it or not...if I did, it was right there. It attaches very securely and the choice between the little hook and the velcro is nice. That being said, it's hard to actually shoot video with this thing on your wrist without keeping your arm contorted in some odd position. I took it snorkeling and would take it off my wrist and kind of strap it around my hand which gave me a pretty good hold and control of the camera without fear of dropping it. It was easy enough to re-strap that it didn't make it much of an issue. I've also since used this to strap my GoPro to a tripod and I'm sure you could find 100 different uses for it...definitely anything round like a bar or pipe (bike, motorcycle maybe)...

    Awkward for what I bought it for.

    Bought this to use while snorkeling. Once I started wearing it, it became very obvious, it is very awkward to use while diving down or just while floating at surface. To point the camera you need to have your forearm at a right angle to the shot. For me, it would be much better if it was mounted on a swivel of some sort. It would give more options. Also, the housing strap down clip comes undone very easily. One time the housing is strapped up against my wrist out of the way and next it's flapping on it's pivot point (and getting in my way). It should have a better way to tighten the tension on the clip. If they were thinking of using the Velcro to do this, Velcro is not strong enough and it wears out.

    Definitely a great mount to own

    This mount is VERY secure. I removed the springy part on the top and opted to simply have it stuck flat to my arm. The mount is Velcro and very wide, wrapping around my arm and definitely staying put. I wore it on roller coasters and rides at Knott's and if the staff saw it they made me take it off, but trust me this is not going anywhere. It's as good as nailed down. Wearing it for the day was very comfortable. I have no doubt this unit will survive anything that you can throw at it. I debated buying this or a short "selfie stick" or other sorts of mounts, but this is indeed the way to go. I made the right choice and am glad I picked this.

    Recently purchased my GoPro camera, and bought every mount I thought I would need, discounting the wrist mount (thinking it would be cumbersome). I was going to use the camera in the ocean on our cruise....so at the last minute I picked up the wrist mount, as well. Boy am I glad I did!!! It turned out to be the only "body" mount I used on the entire cruise. Worked well in all situations, and was pleasantly surprised that it fit so comfortably with my larger than average wrists (8.5-9") Quite surprisingly, probably had 70 people ask me if the mount/camera was a "watch" while wearing it.....lmao

    Okay on bare wrist, better over a jacket sleeve

    I primarily got this for recreational use with my kids. I took it on a hike and the way they made it was a little hard to use. When you flip it up, it has to be semi cockeyed on your wrist (it cuts into your radius since there isn't much tissue there) in order to capture something. Also your wrist gets very sweaty on a hot day from the padded part. However, if it was on a ski jacket or wrapped around a bar (such as my stroller), it works great. When you tighten it down, it stays put. Conclusion: I would recommend it. It has its purpose just like the harness they make (I use it the most), and I'm sure you'll have a purpose for it too.

    I used this to take first person shots of my kids riding on the roller coasters at Disneyland. It's small enough that I had it on my wrist most of the time while I was walking around the park and didn't notice I was wearing it. It was like wearing a bulky watch. When we got on rides I would try and Velcro it on to a bar in the front of the ride so I could capture my kids expressions while they were riding. Some rides it worked great on( California Screaming, Goofys Sky School). Others I could not find a decent bar to strap it to. For those the strap was a good way to wrap it around my hand and shoot videos while I was on a ride.

    The strap is good quality and makes me feel better about it not falling off. Which is def a plus considering the price of the go pro. the strap is diffcult to get used to but you can unhook the top part of the housing use the camera better with your opposite hand but if your doing anything active, you might not be able to do that. Some attractions at amusement parks wont let you use the go pro with the wrist strap because of getting your arm caught or damaging equipment so you may want to think about the chest strap. I don't know if I can bring myself to wear the chest strap but I may have to.

    GoPro wrist housing works well. Fits securely without feeling bulky on your wrist but it did take me a little while to train myself to keep the wrist steady for a better vid. My only complaint is that there are a few bits of sand that got inside the housing when i was taking the gopro out after a snorkeling trip. they are stuck in the front inside lens area and while it doesn't effect the shot, my concern is they come loose when the cameras in there and cause an issue. Tried rinsing them out to no avail. So be careful if you've been playing at the beach.

    functionality is not the best

    The wrist housing is comfortable and easy to wear. The issue I had was the ability to record activities with the placement on the wrist. You have to always be conscious of your arm placement in record mode. This sometimes makes it hard to concentrate on what you are actually doing. Your arm is also tucked in to ensure the camera angle has a good perspective. You may want to think about the type activity you are going to use this housing for before purchasing. I attempted to use it for snorkeling and diving which seemed awkward.

    I got this mount for a trip to Belize where I knew that I was going to need something for snorkeling. It worked great and it's a real sturdy mount. The only weird thing is, the orientation of the camera takes a little getting use to. Meaning, it's mounted like a watch, so taking video is a little awkward. However, I was swimming with fins, so I could just point with my wrist and use my legs to swim. I also used this mount by attaching it on the handlebar on my bike. So, it's very versatile. Sturdy design. 10/10

    This wrist housing keeps your GoPro camera waterproof while your hands are free. The wrist strap is easy to use and is fully adjustable to fit any size wrist. I've used it on some crazy adventures diving, skateboarding, snowboarding, wakeboarding and zip lining. It's durable, easy to use and protects your GoPro camera. It's a bit awkward to use at first, but once you get used to the angle you have to hold your wirst at, it really works well. My kids love using it when they're swimming at the lake!

    We bought this camera for our college-age son for Christmas. He is going to Europe with the Service Scholars program this summer and planned to take our small camcorder - until I researched and found the GoPro Hero 3+. We watched YouTube videos, looked at still pictures, and from everything we read, this was the camera for his trip! He loves it! He has time to learn the ins and outs of the camera before his trip, and I'm sure we'll all be thrilled with the videos and pics from his trip.

    I've used this scuba diving a few times, and the wrist housing is waterproof for my Hero 3+ Black and very sturdy. I pull the strap tight on my wrist and it doesn't move even the tiniest bit. I've also used this on a train ride with open windows and the Velcro straps are sturdy as can be. I highly recommend the wrist housing. The only qualm I have is that for a piece of plastic and a few Velcro straps, it's way overpriced. But it does its job and it does it well!

    Dope - read manual first

    When I first opened it I was disappointed because I thought it would be stuck taking pictures of the sky. I thought, I didn't want that, but I kept it because I needed something to carry my GoPro on my hikes and kayaks. I read through the manual and found out you can adjust it to sit upright. Very stable so it sticks on to your wrist without falling off (I had to exchange a previous one because the velcro would come undone when I moved.

    Was planning trip to Maui and wanted to make sure we had a water proof case for my hero2, I asked an associate for help and they pointed me to this one, I asked if it was compatible with all go pros and was told yes. Should have checked before I left for vacation, as older versions do not work in this case. In very small print on package it does state that too, I just trusted the Best Buy associate to know and lead me....

    I bought this wrist housing for my trip to Costa Rica and it was worth every penny. I attached the housing to my wrist while going on a hike up a volcano through the rain forrest and it was pouring rain. The housing made it easy for me to just stop and snap pictures without having to pull my camera out of my pocket or bag each time. Also, it is great for taking videos while going in the ocean. It fits well and is very durable.

    This is a good housing but it doesn't swivel or have the pole mount and you have hold your arm in front of you while shooting. It wwould be better if it pointed towards your hand. You can only use this housing on the wrist. So if you want it for pole mount you need the dive housing instead. I have used it at a water park and got really good videos. It is a good product just needs to be more versatile. I would recommend to anyone.

    Little Clumsy

    I have not used this in water yet. It is a bit clumsy when putting it on my wrist. It has an elastic loop that hooks to keep the camera flush with your wrist. When unhooked the camera moves feely so you have to hold it to keep it stable. I believe GoPro has a new model that appears to be an improvement over this one.

    The Wrist Housing is a great option for any go pro. It's nice because it is always there and provides a waterproof housing as well. The price is affordable for what you get too. I have used mine on roller coasters and in the ocean and It is Amazing. Check out the video posted along with this review to see what all is in the box and to see it in action. Hope this helps Thanks

    This is a good product depending on what you are using it for. If your using it to film something directly in front of you, you will have a hard time capturing that since the wrist setup has the camera pointing out towards your left or right. You can also starch it to other objects and get a snug fit on circular objects such as canoe paddles and other things like that. Overall it's not a bad product and I would recommend it!
