Product Description

These LifeJacket floaty backdoor accessories are made for use with all GoPro cameras (including the new Hero 3) and fit perfectly on the existing backdoor housing to prevent your GoPro from sinking to the bottom of the ocean should you drop it or the mounting fail. This version is the removable version. It uses 3M Dual Lock technology so you can use your existing backdoor, with or without a LifeJacket. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: Clean the surfaces of the GoPro backdoor and the LifeJacket. Ensure they are both completely dry before then peeling off the backing of the Dual Lock and sticking it to the GoPro backdoor. Apply firm pressure for 60 seconds. Full bond will not be reached for up to 24 hours so it's best to do this well in advance of wanting to use it. Once the Dual Lock is fully bonded to the GoPro backdoor, push the LifeJacket against the Dual Lock on the backdoor and ensure it fully clicks in to place. The LifeJacket is now ready for use. CAREFUL WHEN YOU REMOVE. Care should be taken when you remove the LifeJacket from the backdoor. You should try and separate the Dual Lock on the edge and then prise apart with fingers on the Dual Lock. Do not pull on the LifeJacket. The Dual Lock is extremely strong and you may pull the LifeJacket away from the Dual Lock! It is not recommended to use the removable LifeJacket for motorised water sports or any situations where a strong impact could occur. As with official GoPro floaty accessories, these will not float a GoPro attached to a suction cup mount.

Serves the same purpose as the branded equivalent but cheaper. Kept the camera afloat when snorkelling. Haven't tested it at depth.

This item fits perfectly and should do the job of keeping my Gopro a float if needed. Strong sticking material supplied

I had the camera branded version of this which once you stick it on is pretty permanent, this is removable with velcro 3M stickers, much better, yet to test it in the water but better I had before which was nothing

Worked perfectly.
Tested this pre loading to my surfboard. Just chucked it into the sea. Floated fine with no worries at all.
Loaded to my surfboard now. Have loads of confidence that if my surf mounts become unsticky that this will float and be visable for me to get before another little scamp does.
Pros - Cheaper than the GoPro version.
Cons - None for me - Some people would say that the GoPro version comes with a backdoor housing. I personally dont care if the back of my cam has a bit of velcro on it.

I bought this Lifejacket jacket for use with my Hero 3 black edition on our Rowing clubs training camp last year. Unfortunately my Hero 3 fell out of the launch and landed in the River Dee, where it then sank. Even with this lifejacket installed still camera sank and according to one of our captains it sank very quickly. I would recommend the official Go Pro one. The only positive which came out of this was my rowing club were kind enough to buy me another Go Pro Black Edition
