POSITIVES:

The GoPro Headstrap Mount offers a variety of head-mounting options. It will fit over an ice hockey helmet, a bike helmet, or a motorcycle helmet. The Quick Clip enables the user to attach the GoPro to a backward baseball cap, or other object that is 3-10mm wide. It is perfect for extreme activities like white-water rafting, snowboarding, or running a marathon. On the flip side, you can mount it on your toddler’s head to record his movements. This product allows you to record excellent images without using your hands.

The mount will be located on the front of the cap instead of the brim, which helps to evenly distribute its weight on your forehead. The mount is durable and reliable: you won’t have to worry about dropping or losing your camera. The adjustments to tilt the camera work admirably, and the unit folds down compactly after use, so you can easily carry it with you. It’s well-made and comfortable.

NEGATIVES:

The settings on the GoPro Headstrap may be difficult for some people to use; lots of button-pressing is required to configure anything. The battery life is poor, and it takes a long time to recharge it. Some consumers may find it uncomfortable, resulting in a headache after a few hours. The baseball cap needed for this headstrap must be the fitted kind: a baseball cap with plastic bands or a velcro strap doesn’t work, because there’s a big hole where the Quick Clip is supposed to connect. In addition, the Quick Clip has a soft rubber pad in the back, which is easily broken. It doesn’t work well if attached to a backpack.

The GoPro Headstrap may bounce around too much for some users. If you’re on a motorbike, the headstrap may fall off when you go over a drop. On a rollercoaster, it may fall off if it’s not fitted very snugly. And care must be taken while diving: this headstrap may not fit tightly enough to withstand the impact of falling into the water. In addition, it may slip off when you try to do flips.

WHO WILL LIKE THE GO PRO HEADSTRAP MOUNT AND QUICK CLIP?

People who love to participate in sports will love this item. Whether you’re horseback riding, scuba diving, skydiving, or running a marathon, this headstrap will help you get high-quality footage of your adventures.
