Hero Black 7 Super Suit Back Door

I have the hero black 7 with a compatible super suit for diving. In the box there are three back door options. Are all of these back door options waterproof, including the one that has the opening to access the screen? I'm concerned that if I'm diving in around 80ft that this opening could compromise the go pro? Anyone have any experience with this?

Re: Hero Black 7 Super Suit Back Door

Hi @epicgorge60888,

@danielr15 is absolutely correct. The super suit for Hero7 Black comes with 2 waterproof backdoors which is use when diving for 60m. The skeleton backdoor (open access to the screen) is for touch screen accessibility and improved audio capture that is used mostly when the camera is used in a motorcycle and the supersuit works as a screen protector.

More of the supersuit details found in this link: https://shop.gopro.com/mounts/super-suit/AADIV-001.html

I hope these help.

V.

Re: Hero Black 7 Super Suit Back Door

No, the one with an opening is not waterproof...
Only the solid (the one that prevents using the touch screen) is to be used at depths greater than 10 meters (30 feet).
