Super suit

So I just ordered the hero 7 black, and I’m very excited about it, as this will be my first gopro. I will be doing a lot of hiking with this. Is the super suit a good idea? Does it distort the sound any?

Thank you in advance,

Joe

Re: Super suit

Since the camera will be in a waterproof housing, the Super Suit will muffle the sound considerably. You don't really need the Super Suit. The protective lens on the camera comes off and can be replaced if it gets scratched. https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-3/protective-lens-replacement---hero7-black/AACOV-003.html
You can purchase screen protectors if you want, but you probably don't need those either. https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-3/screen-protectors/AAPTC-001.html
If you are concerned about the camera body, the silicone sleeve will do a good job of providing protection https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-3/sleeve-plus-lanyard/ACSST-master.html?dwvar_ACSST-master_color=...

With GoPro Plus you'll get 50% off of accessories. I do recommend an extra battery or two. A good deal is the dual charger which comes with an extra battery. https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-3/dual-battery-charger-plus-battery/AADBD-001.html
Congrats on the camera.

Re: Super suit

I certainly hope so. I did a lot of research before I made the plunge to purchase it. I am looking forward to taking it out on my backpacking trips and swimming in the falls. From everything I’ve seen this will certainly make our trips memorable for a lifetime.

Re: Super suit

A very handy power pack for your GoPro is the UGREEN power bank for GoPro HERO5/6/7. It has a slot for an extra cashers battery, so you never run out of power. It's especially handy when hiking or away from a power outlet for long periods of time.
