    Chest-O-Vision.

    The GoPro Chest Mount Harness allows you to capture that elusive view of the action from behind the handlebars. If that's what you're after, mounting your GoPro on your head just won't do. It's made of wide, stretchy webbing with sliding strap adjusters to accommodate anyone from petite to sasquatch-sized. The GoPro HD Hero Camera attaches directly to a mount on the sternum and has up/down adjustability.

    Nailed it

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I got this for my brother who's way cooler than me and gets awesome POV footage. Like others he now prefers this mount over a helmet mount for skiing. Easy to adjust and hasn't had any problems of it shifting on him once it's cinched down

    Get the shot!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    The "chestie" as many people refer to it as, is one of the key accessories you should have for your GoPro. Mounting the GoPro to your chest provides a nice point of view for your footage. I like the chest mount more than a helmet mount because when it's on your helmet you have to be very particular of where you are looking so that you get the footage you want. The chest mount keeps the footage in the action spot, either always viewing your bike, skis, board, whatever you're filming. I would recommend this accessory to anybody who wants quality GoPro footage to share with their buddies!

    Good for skiing and biking

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Great option for skiing and mountain biking shots. The video is much less choppy than being on your helmet. That being said, you tend to get less of the surroundings in your shot and more of just what's straight ahead. The straps are easy to adjust and very secure once you sinch them down a bit. Comfy over a ski jacket, although it can feel a bit bulky if you've got several layers on underneath

    Does what it's supposed to do.

      I like wearing this better than having a helmet cam while mountain biking. I've banged my camera on a tree before riding tight narrow single track - totally sucked. Chest mounts are more discrete, out of the way, and you get the cool view of your handle bars! Just remember to wear them high if you ride downhill since you're leaning back hunching over a bit. Only downfall..... why are all gopro mounts so expensive?!

      skiing

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      used it for 7 straight days while skiing. i loved it. above a ski jacket you dont notice you have it on, and it fits seemlessly between a jacket and a backpack. one clip to take it on and off, and easy to screw/unscrew the camera with gloves on (so you can watch your last run on the next lift ride up, of course...). very happy i got this instead of using the helmet mount (which is actually incl when u buy the camera)

      Very solid piece of gear

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      I mount my GoPro on my climbing and skiing helmets, but my wife wanted Chesty for Valentines Day for skiing. It's very solidly made and for her, captures her hand and ski position throughout each video. She loves it.

      I'll stick with the helmet mount--I'm not so tall that the extra few inches makes me hit things, plus Chesty made me sweat my butt off by compressing all my clothing tight to my body. That's a good thing for her (always cold) but not me (always sweaty). Probably worth considering if you run hot like I do.

      Great Buy

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this for biking, skiing, and trail running, though the best use so far has been downhill biking. I've had the Chesty since my first GoPro and its still holding up. I do find that its somewhat difficult to get it to tighten enough when skiing harder snow, which results in a lot of vibration (even with the shock mount). Add some different perspective to your POV footage!

      Best bike POV

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      In order to make a GoPro POV shot really work on a bike, you need something in frame for perspective. With this mount, you see the bike, the bars, your arms and hands, plus everything that's going on in the frame. Its one of my favorite and most dynamic GoPro mounts.

      Best bike POV

      Keoni- I set up as wide as possible - on the GoPro 4 I'm using now - its set at 1040 wide, frame rate is 60 fps I believe in that setting. Depending on how you wear it, you might get too much knee/leg in the frame, so play around with the setup. The higher and tighter you can wear it, the better - same for your flat tops, too.

      Chesty is my favorite mount for MTB

      The Chesty is by far my favorite GoPro mount for cycling, especially mountain biking. This was a shot of Miracle Mile in Big Bear.

      TIP: You can wear the chesty backwards to capture your friends smiles on the bike behind you! Awesome footage when the chesty is mounted on your back!

      Unique POV

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      Got this as a gift a year or two ago and have used it mostly for skiing, although also for mtn biking, and wake boarding. The gopro cameras themselves are amazing and you can capture an incredibly wide field with their fisheye-like lens. The buckles are fatty, and easy to release even with gloves on. I'm not an extremely wide upper body, but it fits relatively snug over clothing and can be synched up if you want/need it tighter. Probably wouldn't fit well on younger kids though. Only real complaint that I have is that while skiing, it makes it look as if you are 'backseat' (i.e. leaning way back) the whole time. Also had I not received this as a gift, I would have a hard time justifying $40 for such a simple harness.

      Looking for a different vantage point

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      If you are looking for a different vantage point and sick of having the camera on the top of your head this is definitely the way to go. I use it constantly when I inline speed skate and mountain bike. It is a lot of fun and gives another option for overall viewing of your line and overall scenery that is around you.

      Used for Mountain Biking and Rafting

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      It is rather bulky and heavy to carry for mountain biking but I like to mount the GoPro from the chest instead of the helmet. It does take a while to setup and mount it on the chest. Another challenge is to get the right angle of the camera from the chest view.

      Great gopro add on

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I've only used this for skiing, but I think it creates an awesome point of view for the viewer. Like Seth said, make them very tight to avoid bumping around. Once I put this on and set it all up correctly I forget there is a camera strapped to my chest. Would recommend.

      Works for me.

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      It fits well and is easy to take on and off. Have only used for skiing. Make it very tight for best results, some like extensions to get the camera up and more adjustability, but to much and back to bounce cam. Is kind of bulky for storage in pack, but I use small packs.

      I'm a trail runner and would like to record some of my runs. Would this harness work for that or would there be too much bouncing to make a good video?

      You will get a little bouncing with this mount, but it would be one of the better mounts to use. The straps cinch down pretty well to hold the camera in place so it shouldn't bounce much more than your body does as you run. I would use the R3 setting to record, that way you could slow it down if you wanted to and it won't feel as bumpy. I use this mount dirt biking and the picture is a lot more stable than I thought it would be.

      Hey, does anybody know if the chest harness works well or better than the helmet mount for mountain bike footage?

      Thanks,Chris

      Best Answer

      first of all, its a different view. expect to see more bars and arms, and if you're sitting down, knees pumping the pedals while wearing the chest harness.

      second main difference: i've noticed that when i do sports of any sort, my head is remarkably still. the helmet mount gives a super smooth video. (while your torso may bounce around, your neck absorbs the shock, and your head stays still.)

      also, if you don't tighten the chest harness down quite a bit, it will bounce when you hit big jumps. but even when tight, you don't really notice it there...

      I plan on using the HD GoPro Camera for Snowboarding. Has anyone used this harness for snowboarding? If so, does it work well, or should I avoid the harness and just use the helmet mount? Thanks!

      Best Answer

      I've seen snowboarding footage with the chest mount and looks pretty cool, but ends up being a little distorted because of the body position. I would recommend the head mount for snowboarding. I have also seen some really good footage from the board mount.

      Does it fit any camera?

      Does it fit any camera?

      No it is specifically designed for the GoPro HERO camera. It is a small digital recorder that comes with a waterproof case used to attach it to a variety of different mounts, anything from your helmet to your surf board to your car.

      Sorry but I can't tell from the photos, does the GoPro Chest Harness come with the "J-hook" mount?

      No it comes with the standard mount, also to get the right angle u need to mount it upside down so u will have to change the settings on he camera otherwise u will be watching upside down I can post a close up pic of it if u would like
