I had this on my GoPro when I bungee jumped off a 190' bridge over a river.
Unfortunately for me the camera (mount and all) popped off my helmet and is gone forever.
The good news is, the camera stayed afloat. We could see it clearly from the bridge deck(190')
floating on down the river.

The Floaty Back Door has saved my GoPro twice while surfing. It works and floats as advertised. Once the surfboard mount came off in overhead surf. The other time I didn't have the camera clipped into the bracket all the way. Note that if the camera is going through the washing machine, it may take a few seconds to come back to the surface.

I recently went white water rafting with my GoPro HD Hero Naked for the first time, and I bought this as cheap insurance in case the tour outfit's pre-installed mounts happened to come loose from my helmet or I smacked heads with someone in the boat and knocked it off. After having a friend lose her GoPro in a lake when its suction-mount failed, I wasn't about to risk it.

There are several 3rd party floats for the GoPro cameras, but I liked this one for three reasons: 1) First and foremost, it comes with a spare waterproof backdoor. That means that once you install the floaty back, you aren't stuck with a float always being on your original waterproof backdoor from there on out. This was important to me since I like to use the waterproof backdoor to cut down on wind noise when using the GoPro on my motorcycle, and I didn't want the extra bulky look of the float sticking out when mounting the camera on my helmet. 2) It's a high-visibility orange. I saw the slightly cheaper ProFloaty Removable - GoPro Floaty Backdoor Accessory that's available in a bright green color, and the orange seemed like it would be visible in a greater variety of situations. 3) And finally, while not important in the grand scheme of things, having an OEM accessory like this just looks nice. I like having the logo and the "Be a hero" tagline on the back of the float; it just makes the whole kit look a bit more high-quality.

If you're going to be heading out into a body of water with your GoPro, do yourself a favor and spend the $15 to protect your $200 to $400 investment. You'll regret needing the insurance of a float and not having it a lot more than having the insurance and not needing it.

I am sure this works great, but I got it with the Hero3+ and the extra backdoor is slightly smaller on that model. I should have read between the lines to figure out it didn't fit that model, hopefully this will help others not make the same mistake. If you just want the floaty to stick on your current Hero3+ backdoor this would work, but don't expect the included backdoor to work.

I bought this as GoPro and Amazon have it listed to fit the Hero 3 and 3+. The floaty back door fits the Hero 3 well and will float the camera and case in at water level. I use the Hero cameras for whitewater kayaking and trust the floaty back door.

The floaty back door does not fit the Hero 3+. If you are like me, you would remove the door from the package, stick the floaty on the door, then want to attach the door to the camera housing. Well....not so much. The door doesn't fit the Hero 3+, but the floaty will work.

If you want this for the Hero 3+, you will need to toss the back door and stick the floaty on your existing camera door.

This device WILL keep the camera only afloat in the water.

This device will NOT keep the camera with the "blurfix" lens above water, especially when using some kind of mono-pod.

Overall this device is a nice addition when you will be around water often or when using the camera for snorkeling/diving.

With my 1st HD2, I just tied on this generic float Chums Waterproof Camera Float through the mounting holes and hopped on the tube and wakeboard without a care. The string broke after a crash and now my camera sits at the bottom of the lake.

When I got a replacement, I took it to the pool. No need for a float right? I can just dive down and get it. Unfortunately, the concrete bottom of the pool scratched the heck out of the plastic enclosure lens.

My point is, if you're getting the GoPro wet (and you SHOULD!!), you need a floatation solution that isn't going to easily detach. The flaoty back is perfect for the camera itself, but if you're adding an attachment or tripod, I would probably suggest The Bobber - Floating Hand Grip for GoPro® HERO Cameras this heavier duty float.

Great product, but you can still loose a gopro.

EVERYONE who buys this product - I recommend going to a local tackle store and buying a steel fishing liter. The one thing that would make this product amazing, would be if they included a leash.

So the to ghetto-rig a leash I went out and bought a 12" steel fishing liter (used to catch big ocean fish so they don't bite the line off).

I would cut the steel liter down to like 3" - 4". Then I would loop one end of the liter through whatever mount I'm using (chest, head, surfboard, etc.) and loop the other end around the gopro.

The bright Red-Orange float will still get lost in big surf that makes big foamy white wash. Do yourself a favor, make a leash. That was if your leash breaks (which it probably wont) you can rely on this floaty as a last line of defense. I wouldn't recommend JUSt using the Floaty as your only safety device. It just isn't big enough to spot.

*Keep in mind - I'm only speaking for the people who are using their GoPro to bodyboard/surf/kayak with. I'm sure it'll work fine for snorkeling, scuba, etc. Anything that envolves fast, violent water I wouldn't trust this device alone.
