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.

Published

on

Earlier in the week, I uploaded a YouTube video titled “What’s In My Drone/Camera Backpack for 2019” basically showing what gear I pack and bring with me when flying my drone, hiking or just out adventuring. Now here is my 2019 minimalist camera kit that I take with me when traveling and I want to pack light. My 2019 version of my minimalist GoPro/Camera travel kit has some new editions from last year. To start things off, the case I use when traveling is the GoPro Casey, I like it because I find it to be a perfect size. It’s not too big, yet not too small and can hold an ample amount of gear. For the most part, I only bring what can be fit inside this case. Watch my YouTube video to see what gear I pack inside minimalist camera kit when traveling, you be surprised how simple and streamlined it is, yet still all the gear I need to capture our adventures. All the gear I pack is listed at the bottom of this post if you saw something you liked and want to check it out further.
