- Best GoPro chest mounty thingy…..
went into town today and saw a good deal on a GoPro… 10€ more than the cheapest online price from some outfit in Hong Kong.
so now i can bore everyone with some
looking in store the chest mount was 25€. online there are full sets of various mounts and stick on patches for not much more.
is the GoPro Chesty really all that? or can a 48 piece job lot offering on Amazon do just a good a job?
if so, which all-inclusive set would you recommend?

Seems there is now a GoPro Chesty v2, which is an improvement over the original. More stable etc. So probably worth making sure you get the newer model.
Or the Stuntman Chest Mount gets good reviews. Though a bit more expensive. They have a shoulder mount as well, could be a better view.Posted 8 months ago
cheers. that was kinda my thinking. maybe these “knock-offs” are made of a more brittle plastic. however, they all seem to include proper 3M adhesive pads in the kits. 3M is the same as what GoPro use.
Sound like a good deal, however the postage to the Vaterland might cancel much of the saving…Posted 8 months agopnikSubscriber
I’ve got the chesty and the stuntman, the latter is a more stable/solid base but also bulkier, more of a chest plate. Can’t comment on the new chesty. The cheap Ebay/amazon accessories i’ve Used have been very pot luck some are fine, but plastic tends to be more brittle as mentioned above and I’ve had some issues with fit, in terms of tolerances being less strict, this especially with the GoProng bits not always fitting together. So I’ve ended up buying the proper stuff and keeping the rest as ‘just in case’ spares or clutter.Posted 8 months ago
