Review updated 2011 Aug 10:

Vs. Helmet mount for mtn biking:

Pros:
- Better PoV perspective which captures more movement of your arms and your gear in action
- Better ground detail
- Better clearance from branches

Cons:
- Can't easily aim it behind you while on the bike and looking back at friends riding a section you just rode
- More wind noise, due to it capturing the sound of wind deflecting off your chest

Footage from my GoPro on my helmet mount wasn't very spectacular. It seemed a bit slower than in real life and made everything look flat, from making obstacles look insignificant to making pitches look level. Moving the camera to the chest mount gave my footage better ground detail to help with depth perception and since it captured my position, arm movement, and gear's movement, it gave a sense of the technique I was using to handle the steep pitches. The ground and foliage seemed to zoom by faster too, which seemed to give a better sense of speed. It made my PoV footage seem a lot more interesting to watch. I still have a helmet mount for certain situations, but this is now my preferred location/way to mount/wear a camera on my body.

Both are kind of finicky to aim. I find the best way is to not use leg attachments if at all possible. The chest mount requires the camera to be tilted up, since your chest will be at an angle to the ground, else you will be filming your bikes top tube and your knees. I found that mounting the camera upside down with it tilting upwards just enough that it allows the camera to be coerced out if you open the rear hatch is just about perfect and is how I realign it each time if I happen to move the camera from mount to mount.

I recently purchased an GoPro HD helmet-cam and this mount has made my skiing video's look stable as compared to using the helmet or head band mount that's included in the package. I guess its skiing style but I tend to move my head around more often then my chest. My chest is typically looking downhill in the direction of the fall line making for a stable platform keeping my viewers from getting sick. This is an accessory item that you should consider purchasing if you like making skiing or biking video's. I'm a big guy (6ft 225lbs)so I was concerned about this thing fitting me but to my pleasure I found that the straps are adjustable, stretch & a buckle next to the camera mount makes for quick removal. Also, it's easy to turn the camera on and start a video shoot with the camera being so close to your chest. I highly recommend using one of these if you want stable looking video's. I give it a thumbs up!

This item is not the official GoPro chest mount as pictured. This is a similar, simple black mount. Once I inserted the frame into the mount it got stuck and I could not get it out. Very disappointed in the false advertising and the struggle to remove the frame.
Update: I received an email from the seller (Buyology) with a bribe. They are offering me a $20 Amazon gift card if I remove this negative feedback and replace it with positive feedback. What kind of people do they think their customers are? The negative feedback stays, and I will never be purchasing from this seller again.

*note that for all of the following, I had adjusted the chest harness to position the GoPro camera as high as possible on my chest/as close to my chin as possible*

I bought the chest harness specifically for a trip to Kauai and it worked out great! I used this on an ATV tour and it was very stable. My fiancée was the one that wore it during the ATV tour as she was riding as the passenger on my right side while I drove (we had a Rhino). If I wore it the view would've been obscured by the steering wheel, but was perfect on her side. If we had a traditional ATV with her sitting behind me, I would've been fine wearing it. The setting was R3, 720P, 60 frames.

The tour guide was nice enough to give a helmet adhesive attachment for the required safety helmets, but I wasn't so keen on trusting my GoPro with the adhesive attachment on a dusty helmet, while going high speed on rough terrain. The video was very stable and secure on the chest harness.

We also took a catamaran trip around the coastline. Worked out great, especially when it left both hands free to hold on to the boat during choppy parts of the ride.

I also used the chest harness during a 'doorless' helicopter tour of the island....something I highly recommend if you decide on a helicopter tour! Just like for the ATV ride, I adjusted the camera position high on my chest, but also pulled it more to my right side (or whichever side you happen to be seated on) where there was no door. Perfect hands-free, stable video! I would occasionally adjust the angle of the camera with a tilt up or down depending upon whether I wanted to record the landscape ahead of the helicopter or below us as we could see straight down with the doors off.

This is a great mount for any activity where you are facing forward. It is not so great for sideways facing activities (aka snowboarding, skateboarding). It is very comfortable and well made. It does what it should.
