      I always wondered why didn't GoPro released a housing that will allow you to always have the convenience of using a powered usb cable so you can run the camera for longer periods and the use of video out with ought needing to modify the original equipped housing.

      Well apparently they have listened to customer concerns and have released the skeleton housing what you gain from it is better audio, better cooling, and the ability to use the cables and power the device for longer periods either via automobile dc to usb car charger or purchasing an eternal universal large capacity battery pack which you can find on here.

      I see it as a must have item recently my wife & I went on a road trip using a 32gbsd card and the housing I was able to record over 6hrs at R3 720P 60 frames by having this housing & plugging it into the car usb charger. The audio is so much better.

      I think it's a bit pricy for a piece of plastic but have to say i've been using it since i got it. Very handy if you want to check your framing on a external monitor. Don't forget to switch to the old housing if you're going to take it in the water doh :p

        Comments about GoPro HD Skeleton Housing:

        Love my GoPro Hero2 camera and with the skeleton housing it adds to its versatility. With the camera mounted in the skeleton housing, I can now run the camera off of a USB power cord plugged into a socket on my motorcycle. That way, I don't deplete the Hero2's rechargeable battery and can save it for off-motorcycle shots. I can also plug in an external microphone into the Hero2 so that I can pick up sounds of the motor without the wind noise that would overpower the Hero2's built in microphone. Great stuff!

                  Comments about GoPro HD Skeleton Housing:

                  I only expected access on one side of the GoPro from other photos I had seen of this product, as it turns out, you are given full access on both sides. I would highly recommend this to anyone who doesn't use their GoPro in or around water. You'll never have to take it out of the case to charge it or access the SD card to remove the video. A much safer alternative than risking getting the lens scratched every time you pull it out of the water proof housing.

                      This is the housing you need (in non wet environments) in order to plug in accessories like the video component cable and use a remote monitor. This housing has hole cut out so you can plug in monitors and microphones. The body is NOT protected from water but it is certainly helpful to see what the go pro sees on a bigger monitor.

                        I mainly bought this so I could use an external mic with my GoPro Hero 2. I guess I should have tested it before buying the case, because I realized that even with the professional external mic GoPro Hero 2 still records pretty bad audio. It is also useful if you want to connect GoPro to an external monitor or charge the battery without removing from the case.

                            This housing is key to own when using the GoPro in a more professional, stable setting, as in external monitoring via HDMI cable to a good monitor, and also using external audio into the camera. The GoPro is still very protected in terms of the lens, but this housing allows easy access to all of the available ports. Also, all accessories usually come with full waterproof backs, as well as skeleton backs, so this is the perfect accessory for those rear doors when the time comes.

                                    Lets me have access to all the ports so I don't need to remove the camera from the housing.

                                        I had to purchase this housing in order to use a mic with my gopro and it works great, no complaints!

                                            Works as advertised. Same solid build. Love the access for many different purposes (such as charge-while-use, and upload convenience).

                                              What you see is what you get. The GoPro skeleton housing increases audio pickup of the GoPro's internal microphone. It also allows you to pull the SD card out of the camera without removing it from the case.

                                              Does exactly what I need : To have access to the GoPro mini-USB port (and other ports as well as SD card) while it is taking timelapse pictures over a period of several hours, since the GoPro battery doesn't last long enough. Made of very good material, as other GoPro accessories.

                                                  This housing made changing cards and pluging in other cables a breeze.

                                                  Not so great is the price, more expensive than the regular housing. This is no fault of B&H.

                                                    This product is a must especially if your intentions are to capture sound quality on land base, that is. Sound could be picked up through the back and sides because there are openings, so making it accessible to your: composite port, USB port, external mic input, HDMI port, and SD card slot.

                                                    This should not be used in any wet elemental environments like snow, rain, misty areas, et cetera.
