SKB iSeries GoPro Travel Case


The GoPro Camera, if you didn’t know already, is a mini camera that captures Hiqh-Definition photos and videos designed for folks who partake in what I call “Extreme” activities.  Yeah, we are a Pro Audio company, but needless to say, there are several of these “Extreme” people at UniqueSquared whether it be snowboarders, wakeboarders, skydivers, etc.  One of the benefits of having a GoPro and its accessories is that you can essentially capture any and EVERY activity you are into no matter how high speed or high adrenaline it is. Even though the camera is awesome in it’s own light, there is still a problem… There isn’t an accessory to keep all of these items safe and secure from your rock and roll lifestyle.  So we solved the problem for you.  We contacted our friends at SKB, who have designed custom cases for UniqueSquared in the past, and asked them for their help on a custom GoPro HD Hero case.

And voila, you can see the shots below.  What did we do first with our new cases?  Watch the video above or see the highlights below:

 

Inside the Case

The result: A waterproof, hard case that can take a beating and still protect your investment. One of the best features of the SKB Case for the GoPro is that it has a specific section for everything, even the manual!

 

Scott, skeptical I will keep the Camera safe

In the latest Unique Squared product review I find out the hard way how durable the SKB Case is for GoPro HD Cameras. There are a couple things I wanted to prove while making this video. I needed to test it’s durability, waterproofing, and then see how far I could challenge the case. To make a long story short, I threw the case into a swimming pool from the 4th story and drove over it with 3 Ton Truck! If you need proof, check out the pictures below…

 

Is that a tire? What is it driving over?

 

Is that the SKB Case!

 

Almost forgot about the back wheel…

 

Splash!

In the end, I didn’t make the NBA and wasn’t able to back my challenge to LBJ, but I did learn that the SKB case can pretty much handle anything. I had a lot of fun making this video and hopefully you enjoy it too. Let me know what other challenges we can put the SKB Case to in our comments section. Thanks for stopping by!
