SP POV cover

No official GoPro carry case? No worries

For reasons unknown, GoPro has never released an official carry case for its range of camera products and accessories.

Anyone who owns a GoPro and multiple accessories will know just how useful such a product would be, both in terms of transportation and protection.

But whilst there may not be an official GoPro case on the market, there are plenty of good alternatives. Here are our top three:

SP POV case for GoPro

The SP POV Case by SP is a tough little case which is suitable for all GoPro models. It comes in a range of sizes – XS to L – making it a great option for those with lots of accessories, or alternatively, for those who like to travel light.

GEM Carry Case for GoPro

GEM case for GoPro

Like the two cases above, the GEM Carry Case has plenty of room for your GoPro and accessories. The GEM’s major selling point is the three way carry system, which makes it an ideal stand-alone carry device.

Cost: £19 from Amazon.co.uk – Click here to view

Specs & dimensions:

  • three way carry system – belt included for waist pack, belt loop, or shoulder carrying
  • 2 zipped compartments with internal netted pocket
  • 2 netted side pockets
  • padded main compartment with removable padded divider
  • main compartment dimensions – height: 130mm, depth: 80mm, width: 155mm

The bottom line

Each of the cases above will suit some users more than others. Ultimately your choice of case will be dictated by how much GoPro equipment you own, and how much more you intend on buying – it’s better to have a case which is slightly too big, rather than one which you’ll outgrow down the line.

You should also consider how and where you intend using your GoPro case: the SP POV is great to throw into a backpack, but a lack of carry straps makes it less suitable as a standalone carry device, for example.
