The GoPro Seeker backpack is a first for the action camera brand. The 16L pack includes two integrated camera mounts — a shoulder mount and a chest mount. There is a deep sleeve for either a hydration pouch or a laptop.

The Seeker also has a base mount for a 3-Way mount that can shoot over your shoulder. The 3-Way is sold separately.

Being a GoPro bag, the Seeker has a soft, lined upper compartment to house up to five GoPros plus batteries and micro SD cards.

GoPro has had plastic handlebar mounts for some time, but this new mount is metal and substantially slimmer. Once mounted, you can rotate the camera 360 degrees.

The Handlebar/Seatpost mount fits bars from 22.2mm to 35mm, and comes with five rubber inserts, a storage bag and a 4mm Allen key to mount it.

The Pro Seat Rail Mount is very similar to the K-Edge design, and is also made of metal. The main difference to the sturdy K-Edge is GoPro’s single-bolt mount instead of K-Edge’s double.
