They fit tight and I have never lost one in 150 hours of flight - Caution if you use a Gimble like the AIRY, make sure you have a back-up strap because the camera gimble restraint strap restricts how far over the lens this cover can go and could get lost in flight esp if you are using the camera in a LOOK DOWN mode (vs level Horizontal viewing).

Ruined the lens

After all the good reviews, these did not work for me. Actually ruined the lens. They go on really tight and when on will not go into the standard clear GoPro protective case. When I tried to remove it the whole outer part of the lens came off the camera along with the protective lens. Not good at all.

If you put it on and leave it on, then it does what it's suppose to do but I don't know why you would never have your GoPro in it's protective clear case though.

      These fix great and get the job done. I actually returned these but you get one with the GoPro Protective Lens + Covers B&H # GOALCAK2 MFR # ALCAK-302. Which worked better for me because it came with 2 other lens protective cover and a replacement little side door. Get that instead, i'm happy i did. B&H as always was awesome with the return.

          Don't make the mistake that I did - I simply put my GoPro in my pocket with my keys. Scratched the heck out of the lens. It is now a $ paperweight. Get this, put it on your camera, and save yourself some serious grief! Leaving you camera in the full waterproof case does not generate your best quality. You need to take it out of the case when you can - but for goodness sake, don't leave the lens exposed.

              These fit very snug over my GoPro cameras. I often use the Frame and Tripod mount so I wanted something extra to protect the exposed lens. These did the trick. They do not distort the image. Highly recommend if you are a user of the Frame mount.

                      I bought these to protect the lens for my HERO3, which is mounted on a Zenmuse gimbal, on the DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter. Unfortunately the bracket that holds the camera to the gimbal interferes with placement of the protective lens. Other than that, they seem like they would work well in other applications. I also have a HERO2 and they are too big for that lens.

                            I fly my GoPro,s outside its protective case on a gimbal attached to a quadcopter. I was always concerned with there not being anything to protect the cameras lens. This product does the job perfectly.

                              For the cost these are good lens protection - there are 2x in the package so ya have a spare.

                              They fit tight and I have never lost one in 150 hours of flight - Caution if you use a Gimble like the AIRY, make sure you have a back-up strap because the camera gimble restraint strap restricts how far over the lens this cover can go and could get lost in flight esp if you are using the camera in a LOOK DOWN mode (vs level Horizontal viewing).
