Our Verdict

The Kourpars Protective Housing Case for GoPro Hero7 Black Frame Camera Mount is a great choice for anyone looking to add extra protection for a rough environment.

It’s compatible with the Hero7 Black, Hero7 Silver, Hero7 White, Hero (2018), and Hero5, 6, and 6 Black. The camera slips into a plastic frame and locks in place, and then the frame slides into the protective housing, which has a lockable latch.

This housing is more secure than others we tested, and the lockable latch means you can be extra sure that the camera stays put.

This rugged housing is great for any outdoor activity where you want added protection for your camera. The Kourpars Protective Housing Case is a good choice if you want to add extra protection for a rough environment.

Our Verdict

The Sametop GoPro Hero 7 Frame Mount Housing Case is the most versatile option we tested. It fits all of the latest Hero7, Hero6, Hero7 Black, Hero7 Silver, Hero7 White, and Hero(2018) cameras, including the most recent models released since our last update in 2018.

The Sametop is also the only frame we tested that offers a side-door opening, which makes it easier to access the camera’s ports and buttons. It’s also the only model in our test group that allows full-time access to the camera’s USB-C and HDMI ports, which enables convenient data offload and charging (although the other models did allow access to these ports, they required a little more effort to open the frame).

The Sametop’s unique design offers the best audio performance of the frames we tested, thanks to its holes for the microphone and speaker. It comes with a decent lens cover that also helps guard against dust, dirt, and scratches.

FitStill Double Lock Waterproof Housing for GoPro Hero 2018/7/6/5

9.1

Our Verdict

The FitStill Double Lock Dive Housing is the best choice if you have a GoPro Hero 7, 6, 5, or Hero 2018.

It’s built tough to withstand 45m of submersion, and it comes with a variety of accessories, including a flat glass lens, a rotating bezel, and a one-button opening mechanism.

Compared with the standard GoPro housing, this model is 0.4” bigger and 35% thicker, which helps keep it from accidentally opening, and the glass lens is 1.5x bigger than the standard model’s.

It produces sharp images above and below water, and the boxy design makes it easy to hold, despite being bulky. It’s rated IP68, which means it can withstand submersion down to 45m.

NEEWER 50 in 1 Action Camera Accessory Kit

8.0

Our Verdict

The Neewer 50 in 1 Action Camera Accessory Kit is one of the most versatile accessories we tested. It works with all of the most popular action cameras, including the GoPro Hero 11, 10, 9, 8, GoPro Max, GoPro Fusion, and their earlier models.

It’s also compatible with the DJI Osmo Action, Insta360 One, AKASO X5, APEMAN W100, Campark S100S, SJCAM SJ4000/5000/5200, and others. It includes everything you need to get started, including straps for head, chest, and helmet mounting; a wrist strap with a 360-degree rotatable mount to position the camera in front of you or on your arm; a floating handle grip to keep your camera afloat in water; a handlebar mount and suction cup for attaching your camera to the car or bike; a flexible tripod and selfie stick.

Diruite 4Pcs Screen Protector for GoPro Hero 7(Only Black)

7.9

Our Verdict

Again, if you don’t want to use a screen protector, or if you want to use a screen protector with a case, we recommend the Diruite 2-pack of tempered glass screen protectors.

Our testers found the Diruite screen protectors to be very clear and easy to install, and they were the only screen protectors that actually adhered to the screen without causing air bubbles.

We don’t think this model is a good choice for anyone who plans to use a touchscreen regularly because it’s more difficult to use with precision.

If you do plan to use the touchscreen frequently, we recommend the Supershieldz 2-pack of tempered glass screen protectors. The Supershieldz screen protectors were the easiest to apply and were more accurate than the other models we tested.

However, they’re more expensive than the Diruite screen protectors, and our testers found them a little dimmer and less viewable because of some adhesive at the edge of the protector.

What to Look for Before the Purchase

Here’s what we looked for in accessories for the GoPro Hero7:

Waterproof Protection

We wanted accessories that could withstand a drop or splash. The vast majority of cases we’ve tested have been waterproof to some degree (though some are not advertised as waterproof).

We’ve also used some waterproof cases with floats (so they can help you track a lost GoPro if it accidentally goes overboard), and we’ve also noted those here.

Compatibility with Accessories for Older Hero Cameras

We wanted any new accessories to work with older generations of Hero cameras—and ideally, to be backwards-compatible with Hero6 and Hero5 models as well.

We noted any limitations we encountered in testing.

Availability of Accessories

GoPro has a proprietary mount system that is used in its cases and accessories, and that means you need to buy them directly from the company if you want to use them.
