    Great idea, poor execution

    We purchased this set for our new GoPro 5. It came with all the accessories we wanted so thought it'd be a great starter kit. Upon opening and using found the pieces to be a bit cheap. All of the accessories did make a perfect fit for the GoPro brand, so no issues there. The issue laid in the fact that the accessories weren't up to par. The selfie stick you have to twist out to make it stay up, but without a good twist the weight of the camera could make the stick fall back down as you were trying to take a selfie. The suction cup car mount wouldn't stick if completely upside down. Just kept popping off. The three arm prong did well, that's the only one I'd actually like to keep. Was good for placement on various items such as bike handle bars and fencing. In the end we returned this kit and paid 3x as much for GoPro branded accessories. They were quite pricey but the quality was unbeatable.

    For the money, this package was worth purchasing.

    ..in my case because I had none of the items (accessories) at all. In that case, this is a good accessory package. All items in the package seem solidly made and should last. The head strap holder / connection is definitely much more comfortable if worn under a suitable hat. The chest harness is fairly comfortable. One suggestion when using these attachments is to point your camera a bit higher than you might think. The wide shooting area of the camera captures a lot more view than you think and a good number of my first attempts would have been better if the camera were pointed a bit higher. Here is a another reason to experiment with this camera (and attachments) a bit before you get into a situation where you want that first shot to be right because it may be the only shot you get.

    The gear is good if you are looking to produce basic images with the GoPro. I haven't used everything in the kit. However, on my first use of the suction cup, it flew off the windshield @ 30 miles an hour. Right after that, I moved the camera inside the car. It works well as a mount on the inside. I have no fear using there. However, the screw mechanism lost the nut to the screw. That fell down and was lost inside the car. To be honest, if you are are looking to do middle-of-the-road GoPro production or are on vacation, this is a good kit. If you are an extreme videographer, you'll want GoPro brand products. For instance, the suction cup here is about 2.5 inches in diameter, while the GoPro branded product is about four inches wide.

    we got this for a D.R. vacation everything was good at first nice clear videos and we were looking forward to using the underwater features unfortunately when my daughter started snorkeling the camera shut off, then once on the boat water came out of the camera and after drying never worked another vacationer said that happened to them too on there first camera. to compound the situation when i returned the camera to best buy the sales associate said i waited to long to return it and gave me a gift card for the amount but refused to take the charge off my BB credit card, so i'm still paying for a returned item...

    Why Purchase 1 GoPro brand accessory for the same price of 14 that do exactly the same thing? The floaty device and chest harness were my most used so far and they were nothing shy of PERFECT. I actually prefer the floaty device in this kit versus go pro's because it also acts as an attachment for holding it (its a big yellow bobber that looks like a straight banana lol). I would strongly recommend purchasing this Kit for all of your needs. Maybe later on you can purchase other GoPro specific ones like the dog mount, but this fulfills all needs perfectly. MUST HAVE

    I bought a Gopro Hero 5 black and this kit together in order to start recording all my upcoming trips, after being to many cities, last Saturday I went river Rafting, I took the chest strap, made sure to lock everything in place and got ready, I was having fun but all of the sudden to my surprise someone point out that my camera was gone, I still had the strap on and nothing seemed broken, it simply slip out of it, I got this kit to not worry about this and well, my camera end up at the bottom of the river with all my videos on it...

    I was worried the quality of these items would be subpar but took a chance because the store was out of the GoPro brand head mount. I used the head mount while white water rafting and used the included cable and carabiner attached to my life jacket just because I doubted the head mount. We went through some pretty rough rapids and the mount never slipped on my head at all. Everything stayed securely in place allowing me to capture some great video. So glad I I purchased this kit instead of the Go Pro brand items. Quite a steal at the price. Have not used many of the items so I can't speak to them but I don't doubt the quality of those items either like I did originally.

    Now, i recently got into the whole GoPro thing since the summer was around the corner I figured I might like to do videos of memories and photos as well. (Fuji instax mini 8). An employee asked if i needed assistance and I said yes and asked her advise. I told her I was planning a trip in late August to Puerto Rico and wanted to make memories with my GoPro. Her suggestion was valid because this kit has literally everything I was asking for and much much more. The quality is different, (The selfie stick retracts on its own, making it hard to take videos/pics) but nothing that'll make me regret buying. I tried to take this to Six Flags and it was a no-go.

    Honestly when I went to the store to buy this, I went straight to the GoPro section. Not to mention the prices of the actual brand were very expensive and I honestly was trying to stay on a budget. So I went to look around and I found this. At first I thought maybe it was cheaply made, but I thought I’d try it out. It has absolutely everything and everything worked great! No complaints, the only thing was on the yellow floating grip device, the strap did not have clip to stay put on my arm, but that is an easy fix. Cannot beat it for the price.

    I purchased a Go Pro Hero 4 camera for my 13 year old son. An expensive camera that comes with limited to no accessories. Knowing that my son would instantly want to strap in on and start recording his adventures I searched Best Buy for a comparable solution to the overpriced Go Pro authentic accessories (ie: chest harness, head harness, mini tripod, extra mounts, etc) Insignia proved to be an incredibly credit worthy alternative to the name brand accessories. Not only was the value well worth the money but the kit had everything my son needed to start his film career.

    I love the various accessories for all our family activities. The safety of the floating handle anytime we are in, on, or near the water. The head strap gives a different look at the world along with the chest strap for a hands free operation of the camera. The extendable monopod pole is very handy and each is easily mounted and dismounted. Great savings over buying individual pieces from GoPro. We have been very happy with Insignia products over the years.

    I bought this kit because 1) It had all the little accessories that I wanted minute the long arm. 2) The price was well within budget and not too expensive like other brands my thoughts: I took this kit to a parasailing and a few music festivals and this out performed than I originally thought. This was built with quality. The images and videos that was taking using the suction cups, chest band, and stick was outstanding. The material and build quality is very sturdy. I have yet to try the float stick that it comes with.

    So the mini tripod doesn't work at all with the Hero 7 even though it is advertised otherwise. That turned me off. The chest strap was sketchy as well. The head wear was OK. And while there are a lot of functional gadgets, they are all just a bit weaker than the FitBit counterpart. I would have been better off just buying the right pieces and getting the FitBit version as opposed to falling for a variety package.

    For the most part the kit has a good deal, but the stick in it is not. It drops and isn't sturdy, unfortunately, it was my main draw to the set. My kids already had head straps for their gopros and for them the stick will be fine as they mostly just goof off. Make sure you twist the stick to get it to stay but jostling it will cause it to drop again. The rest of the items work well. Only reason I wouldn't recommend this is the stick quality and most people are looking for a great quality stick.

    A Lot of Plastic Junk

    I just purchased this kit and the only thing I found to be ok quality is the chest harness. The plastic swivels and the direct mounting heads WILL NOT lock down tight. It will be ok if you are not using the GoPro for any action, but what's the point of that? Also, ALL the metal hardware is plain steel, not stainless like GoPro uses. It will rust at some point! I'm returning this product to get the better quality GoPro accessories.

    Great value for the price. If you buy each item separately, you will pay much more. The pole is easy to expand and retract. I haven't used the other accessories yet, but will be soon. I am rating it 4 stars because I am missing a piece. The box I bought was an open box item, said it had all the items, but I am missing a tripod.

    I purchased the accessory pack for my 13 year-old grandson to complete his Christmas gift. His parents gave him a GoPro camera and he needed a few more items to fully utilize it. Since it was his first experience with a GoPro I was looking for something that would enhance his experience but not break the bank in case he lost interest. This purchase was perfect. It had all the basic accessories that he would need to get started.

    I had bought some individual pieces and when i compared the price of this package I returned the others and bought it. Lots of stuff for your go pro, I've used the head strap on a zip line in Jamaica, solid hold, steady, comfortable fit. I used the bobber when I was in the water with the camera, offered a good grip as well. Mini tri-pod which holds the camera well. I'll get around to using the other attachments in due time....

    I looked at other similar accessory kits, and even though there are some at a lower price, I chose the Insignia. After talking with other users, the old adage "you get what you pay for" applies in this case. With the cheaper price you often get lesser quality. Parts don't fit right, they fall off in use, or they break. This product seemed to be very good value for the price, and it was recommended buy users.
