GoPro Hero 5 Black Super Suit | Installation and Review



The Hero 5 black is waterproof just as it is without any housing to a depth of 33 ft. The GoPro Super Suit for the Hero 5 Black is designed to allow it to be used up to at depth of 196 Ft while scuba driving. Even if you have no plans on taking your Hero 5 Black that deep, it can even just add a little piece of mind for days at the beach or in the back yard swimming pool.

The GoPro hero 5 was engineered to be tough, however it is still prone to damage from hard knocks or falls onto concrete or rock. The Hero 5 Super Suit not only adds extra water protection, it can also be used to add protection for every day use. If you’re a skate boarder and you have your Hero 5 attached to your board, a couple bad spills could severely damage your GoPro. Having the Hero 5 Black in its super suit gives it another line of defence. Its cheaper to replace a $49 (US) housing than having to replace your whole GoPro.

How To Install Hero 5 Black Into The Super Suit Housing.

If you have purchased the GoPro Super Suit for the Hero 5 Black, you will notice that the GoPro will not fit inside. In order to install and mount the GoPro Hero 5 in the housing you must first remove the protective lens from the Hero 5 Black. This Video Shows You How To Remove Lens. Once you have the lens cover removed the Hero 5 black will fit perfectly.

What Comes With The Hero 5 Super Suit

Inside the box you will find the main body of the unit. You will notice there are two extra doors. One is a skeleton door, for the most part this is if you are using the ‘Super Suit” housing for every day protection. The skeleton door has an opening on the back that allows for full use of the touch screen. When this door is used, the camera is not water proof. You will also notice there is a second identical water proof door. Having a second door allows you to attach a stick on floaty, you can switch back and forth as needed. The package also comes with a thumb screw and the newer style GoPro buckle mount.

Best Memory Card for the new GoPro Hero 2018

There are many types and sizes of memory cards on the market that will work with the new GoPro Hero 2018 but to keep things simple I recommend the Lexar 633x it is a great memory card at a decent price and I have always had good luck with them.  You can choose how much storage you would like the most common is 32 GB or 64 GB. This determines how many photos and videos can be stored on the camera.

Must Have $10 Upgrade For Your GoPro



If you own a GoPro this is a very inexpensive must have upgrade that everyone needs. One annoyance that I have had with my GoPro is having to remove it from the frame every time I want to charge it or plug in a microphone. With this 3rd party GoPro frame you can open and remove the charging door on your GoPro without having to remove it from the frame, saving a lot of time and aggravation. This frame also seems to be a better build quality than the stock frames, it has a nice rubberized coating. This is such a simple little fix, I wonder why GoPro has not implemented it yet on their official frames. Because they all have the same form factor this 3rd party frame is compatible with the Hero 5 Black, Hero 6 Black and the new GoPro Hero (2018).

GoPro Upgraded Frame:


This 3rd Party frame allows easy access to the GoPro charging door.


You can see the difference in the cutout. Stock GoPro frame on the right and 3rd party frame on the left.


Charging door can easily be opened and removed without having to remove the camera from the frame.


Allows you to easily charge your GoPro or plug in a microphone.
