    Body Armor and Chest Mounted Go Pro
    Hi,

    This is a long shot but does anyone have any experience using the GoPro chest mount with the POC Spine Tee? I'm thinking of buying a GoPro and currently use the POC Spine Tee, I'm pretty sure that the chest mount isn't going to work very well because it won't sit flush to my chest without some kind of modification.

    Could anyone who uses a GoPro + chest mount suggest whether it's going to work or will it just flap around like a dying fish?

    Thanks for any advice.:thumbsup:

    I just used the chest mount over a PFD for kayaking down the Grand Canyon, with a knife and a whistle in the way. No problems. Looking at the Spine Tee, I don't foresee any issues. The straps are quite adjustable and help it conform well.

    I actually found that mounting my GoPro to my 661 coresaver; provided a smoother video.



    I was initially quite worried about the 3M GoPro mount falling off during a rough ride; but after lots of runs on the local DH and jump trails, it shows no signs of failing.
    Here is a quick clip of said mount.

    That's a pretty sweet idea, I'm not sure it would work with the POC armor though. I wear it under a jersey too so it would mean cutting a hole for the camera.

    Nice video by the way.

    I have the POC vest and I have a hard time getting my Go-Pro to stay stable while riding DH. It tends to oscillate up and down no matter how much I attempt to tighten the chest straps. Still trying to figure out a solution.
