I love my GoPro and I bring it everywhere I go now. It is so small and compact it never weighs me down and I can attach it to just about anything.
Over the years I’ve tested a lot of GoPro poles, attachments, mounts and accessories. These are my favorite GoPro travel accessories.
Your first decision is between the Black and Silver edition. They are very similar but pick which one is right for you. I carry the Black edition but both are great cameras. Last years model is great too if you don’t want to spend the extra money on the HERO4.
This is a great GoPro extender pole. It extends to 32 inches, collapses to only 7 inches, and weighs 7 ounces.
I have also tried this pole out. It is cheaper than the XShot Pro but is noticeably less stable. It will get the job done if needed.
Backup Gear for GoPros
GoPro batteries don’t last forever, memory cards fill up, and sometimes there are no chargers nearby. That is why you need to be prepared when using your GoPro.
GoPro sells backup batteries but I have found these batteries from Wasabi to be awesome. I carry 4 extra batteries charged whenever I go out with my GoPro.
When I need to charge on the run I use this Anker charger. It can charge my GoPro backup batteries from anywhere. This is a perfect combo with the Wasabi Power Pack.
Water Gear for GoPros
GoPros come with a waterproof case but there are couple of other ways to protect your GoPro. These two accessories save your GoPro from getting lost at the bottom of the ocean or simply helping it stand out when dropped in the water.
The number of GoPro mounts seems to multiply by the day. I carry 3 main accessories and mounts with every time: The extender pole (above), a suction cup mount, and the roll bar mount. These are great for off-road vehicles and adventure sports.
GoPro Carrying Case
Once you have all this great GoPro gear you need a handy way to carry it. I carry the smaller case on the left since it fits great in my backpack, however I am often in need of a little more space. Both offer great storage solutions.
I carry multiple memory cards when I travel. 64GB is a lot of footage and hard to fill in one day but if there is a problem it’s nice to have a backup.
I also carry a tough external hard drive to backup all of my footage after a day of shooting. You don’t want to lose that footage so always back up your photos.
This is a low profile alternative to the case that comes with your GoPro.
These are great for making mounts on the go. Stick them to your helmet or on anything and go!
Those are my favorite GoPro travel accessories. I carry them in my GoPro case wherever I go. If I left out your favorite let me know!
