Case for Airsoft

I have the Hero 5 Black GoPro for airsoft purposes. The case I've been using is the Super Suit case since it said that it can be used for extreme outdoor activities. The only issue I have is that it doesn't record the best of sounds while in the case. Is there a case and a set of things that can protect the GoPro from incoming Airsoft BB's and where I can at least have better recorded sounds?

Also, are the Protective Lens that came with the GoPro durable enough to resist the projectiles? Because I did consider using it after a while of using the super suit. But I didn't want to risk damaging the actual Lens.

Re: Case for Airsoft

As long as nobody is using hard BBs, a simple lens protector should suffice.  Get a picattiny rail mount for some cool "battle" footage!

Re: Case for Airsoft

No, no, no. Always use another lens cover for airsoft. BBs can and have shot out lens covers. I think using the Super Suit along with the Skeleton backdoor will give you good audio. Remember to lock your sound mode to "Wind". Stereo sucks.

 

There might be aftermarket covers that can go in front of your lens. Something along the lines of what you would protect a scope in airsoft with.

Or if you just want to buy one for your gopro...

Here is one for Hero 4 and all Sessions:  https://www.shapeways.com/product/YXJBAE5YM/lens-protector-for-gopro-hero-4-5-session-cameras

 

 

today im gonna show you how to make a lens protector for any gopro out there, but it is most helpful with the new "Hero" line, where the camera is permanently in the case. Links: Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-ho... Previous video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bfj8bcNT9oU Twitter:

As far as an aluminum protective case here are two i found for the Hero Session cams:

 

This one has an integrated picatinny rail mount:
