Description

Make sure your camera's not swimming with the fishes.

After a wipeout in which you lose your grip on your GoPro Hero, you'd much rather find it bobbing on top of the water than have it sink beneath the waves to Davy Jones' locker. Make it so by attaching the GoPro Floaty Backdoor to your camera's waterproof housing; simply peel and stick this foam block to the backdoor, and you're at least assured of a fighting chance of retrieving your camera.

  • Includes spare waterhousing backdoor
  • Not recommended for suction mounts

Nice!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Makes me feel safe about my gopro. Have used it for boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, and surfing. Works great, however its made just to float the gopro with a light mount. Anything heavier will sink. Best thing to do is test it with different mounts, before actually taking it out to see if it will float.

does it work for hero 3+?

Great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This makes the camera float well. Make sure you test it with other items you have attached to it just to make sure it still floats!

Great, but not for diving.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not surprisingly, the floaty backdoor doesn't work when scuba diving. The pressure compacts the backdoor down to a squished up nothingness. But it will still work just fine at the surface. Don't be alarmed if you take it diving and this happens. This saves your GoPro's life when dropped overboard or lost boogie boarding.

Great investment, use cautiously

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This little floaty has saved my GoPro from the depths of the murky lake several times. I love that it's bright orange because it's so easy to find. My user tip of the day is to set up your GoPro (on whichever mount you use) and see if it will float. It floats just fine with a head strap. I've attached two extenders to it and it will sink. There are a few GoPros on the bottom of lakes or oceans with this floaty on them because the floaty isn't strong enough to float more than just the camera.

It Floats!

Not much more to say, besides it floats. Definitely necessary because your gopro does not float and this is cheap enough to buy rather than making something to solve the floating problem,

Always be sure to use the Floaty Backdoor when you take your GoPro out on the water. In case you didn't know or have learned the hard way. GoPro's don't float!

Sweet

I was always afraid I might lose mine whenever I went out surfing and snorkeling. But now that I have this I love the go pro that much more. Not only does it float really well but it stands out a lot too.

Perfect for in the Water!

GoPro's don't float so don't take them near a lake or a river without this floaty back door! I use it when I'm kiteboarding, Rafting, and Kayaking!

Hey,

Yes, it will work with the non HD Hero.

P.S. Don't say "tard"---you're better than that.

It really works

I was a little skeptical at first as to if it would really float it as well as they say, so I turned on the jets full blast in my hot tub and threw it in. It stayed on top. It would get pushed down pretty hard, and popped back up every time. Works. Well worth it, definitely gonna be on my cam any time I'm on the water.
