GoPro Sleeve + Lanyard | Review & Thoughts

Published

on

A few weeks back GoPro introduced a new accessory called the GoPro Sleeve + Lanyard. It’s a silicone sleeve with a lanyard attached and comes in three colors, blue, white and black. My first thoughts when I saw this announced was that I really had no use for it. Fast forward a few weeks and now it has become an important part of my every day GoPro camera bag. The reason my thoughts on the silicon sleeve + Lanyard changed was when the need arose for one. Last week I was on holidays in Niagara Falls and I was filming with my GoPro Fusion 360 Camera. However, I still wanted to grab some photos with my Hero 6 Black. I just kept my GoPro in my pocket and would grab it, take a shot and put it back in. After a few hours of this, I realized that the Sleeve and Lanyard would definitely come in hand so I could hang my GoPro around my neck and it would always be easily accessible.

Needless to say, as soon as I got home I ordered the blue and the black version. I have seen silicon sleeves in the past and they always seemed cheap looking but I was quite surprised how sharp the GoPro brand Sleeve + Lanyard looked. The generic ones were really thin almost like a balloon material but the GoPro brand was nice thick rigid silicon that definitely offers up some extra protection as well. You can just tell it is a nice quality build, looks great and a nice way to give you GoPro a bit of a color splash. They Lanyard can be used around your neck or attach to your wrist so you don’t have to worry about dropping it.

The GoPro Sleeve + Lanyard is compatible with the GoPro Hero 6 Black, GoPro Hero 5 Black and the GoPro Hero (2018). Watch our YouTube video to take a closer look at the GoPro Silicon Sleeve + Lanyard.
