Quick update:

While I was still able to get some decent footage my first time out, I had a few issues. First off, the locking mechanism for the tripod adapter flat out sucks. It loosens up after minutes! The tilt adjuster could be even worse. Even when it is all the way tight, it will allow for movement. Now, that being said, when going down a mellow groomer, I had no issues with it tilting out of angle at all. I have yet to take it on any bumpier runs so I guess we'll see how that goes.

I'm going to look at using a different lock nut to secure it better in the future.

I was really pleased with how the camera and pole fit in my camelbak zoid even with the bladder half full without me having to detach it .
