Nice instruction. I'd add string/line from gopro mount to backback. And I'd route line inside the tube. Just to prevent camera loss on hard landings :)

I just made this for my gopro. So simple and elegant. Great design!
This is by far the nicest design to get a great perspective. Thanks,
Sal

What kind of backpacks are you guys using? I'd like to make one of these but don't have a backpacklying around, I would need to buy one.
