SHOOT Protective Frame Mount Housing Case Cover for GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black With Filter

The housing that ships with the GoPro 5/6/7 is half decent but it has a couple of drawbacks. Firstly, you can’t open the port slot whilst the camera is in the housing. That means when you want to use the 3.5mm external mic adapter you have to remove the camera from the case, then remove the port door altogether, then put the camera back in the housing and store tiny door somewhere until you’ve finished. Not an idea set up. Secondly, you cannot use standard 52mm filters with the camera; instead you’ll need to purchase expensive square filters made for the GoPro.
A search of the various aluminium housings available came up with the SHOOT Aluminium GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Housing with 52mm UV Lens Filter, which very effectively solves both of those problems in one go. As such, I’ve ordered one in and will do a more in-depth review once I’ve used it for a couple of rides.
