The GoPro Chest harness is an accessory that makes really easy capturing immersive videos and photos from, you guessed it, your chest. This is the perfect chest harness for people, who love skiing, paddle sports, mountain biking, motorsports and any other activities that are more engaging and you will want to have a lower view of action.

If you want a chest harness for a kid, you should think about buying the GoPro Junior Chest Harness, which is designed specially for youngsters.

The manufacturer GoPro says that the video footage taken from the lower point of view, like in this case is the chest, is more immersive and better than the footage made by higher point of view (from the head).

But there are also some cons with it. The chest mount might not fit good on people with larger frames. People that don’t want to do low angle shots might dislike the chest harness. One con from the point of the video quality is that with the chest harness, your GoPro can pick up some more wind noises. And last, but not least – when using the Chesty, you will have to turn your whole body to change the shooting angle.

But if you want to make the capturing process something new and unseen, the GoPro chest harness is the right accessory for you. It will let you to do a new adventures and have a lots of fun, without worry for anything, because your camera is mounted good and safely.

The buckle of the chest harness is J-shaped, but if you don’t like it, you can use other kinds of buckles.
Just keep in mind that with this chest harness you can’t capture nothing from your side and behind, to do that, you must turn around with your whole body. This is not an issue with head mount.
