Default Flexy Backpack Mount for GoPro?

Hey folks I'm looking for a backpack mount for a gopro

Looking for something EXACTLY like this(but shorter)
Gopro backpack mount #1

I'd like something like to mount to my backpack so it can be "bent" out of the way or to get a better view of the rider.


Is there something like this commercially available?

The only thing I can think of is the GoPole, here is there website: GoPro Poles, Mounts, Grips & Accessories - GoPole

They don't have a bendy one though, but I'll probably get one of the expandable ones and try to fasten it inside my backpack to get an effect like in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-oyjdZD-lY

Would just be great to get a bendy one that you could bend out of the way when you don't want it sticking out, may have to go Mcguyver style and make something myself. thanks

Found it 15$

VIO Flex Mount for POV Cameras (12 inches) - Model #: ANL015 | SKU: 124 - PointofViewCameras.com

I'm going to get the tubular mount from gopro and just mount it to my avalanche shovel in my pack.

Only issue with it being flexible is when you are bouncing around or hit something it will change where the camera is pointing.

I hope not supposedly not as it's super stiff, WAY stiffer\stronger than the mounts for GPS's on your windshield and with a GoPro(lightweight) there's should be much stress on the flexi rod. I'm more concerned about my shovel moving around in my pack and causing the pole to move but that should be manageable with some 5$ compression straps.

But yea if it hits something it's for sure going to move, will have to duck under branches instead of trying to bust through them.

Default GoPro backpack pole mount

I have a different solution for a backpack mount, I only tested it with skis, but I will modify it a little bit to point to the side, so you can also use it for snowboarding.

At the end of the video you can also see how I made it.

Not to rain on your parade be careful with a fixed mount like that, it could honestly lead to injury. I can only speak for myself but I find a real need to be able to move the camera to dodge trees and stuff and if you fall in a bad way you can always just drop it.
