Hey there! Below is my review:

I love the concept of this product, I would definitely give it 5 stars for the concept, however, there are 2 flaws that disappoint me. First off, the length of the leash (for me personally) is too long. I did some processed test drops and my camera hit the ground every time - keep in mind that the company is pointed towards water sports, and this wouldn't really be a problem in the water, as you an just pull it right back up. That being said, this product DOES NOT work if you're my size (5' 4") for non water activities or activities that do not feature a soft surface below you. The other flaw that I found was that the arm band seemed to loosen and fall off, so I would love to see some rubber added on the inside in the future, similar to the inside of the GoPro head strap. This has been a completely honest review. Overall, I think this is an amazing concept, and most certainly a wonderful first build, but I definitely think there's some room for improvement!

Thanks to Z Gear for this amazing opportunity to test this product out, and I hope this will help you improve and shape your products into something even more amazing!

Thanks for trying out our new leash. I understand your concern about the length of the leash especially when using on activities over hard surfaces. We were trying to ensure that the leash did not create any discomfort or limit ones mobility. The use over or under water, snow or air would be the optimum scenario to use this product.

Second concern that you mentioned was inregards to the inner surface of the arm band. It was suggested that it should have some type of grip mateial on that surface like a rubber coating. This is what we have on it currnetly, except it is a very thin layer. It is not a silicon type of bead like the one on the Go Pro head strap but we can certainly use this input to further improve on this grip type application for the arm band. Thanks for your participation.

hey guys, i would use it for surfing. I am a good surfer and the thing is, i cant use the normal head strap when it slips off my head it would be gone. So this one would be perfect for surfing. I would post my Videos of it on Vimeo and would tell which accesoires i used. I would also tell the local surfshops about the product cause they might be interested in selling it too :)

Hey there,

I did go back and feel that the arm band does have a bit of a grip to it. This is definitely a minor flaw and the current grip works pretty well, I still personally think it could be improved though! Thanks again.

As a side note when concerned about the length of the leash when stretched out, especially over harder surfaces. We suggest that you were the leash under your jacket or even under your shirt if you are not wearing a jacket this way If the head strap comes off it will only dangle off the collar and this will definitely keep it from hitting the ground. We tried making the leash shorter but it is not as comfortable as how we have it currently. Do you think you can try this out. Let us know how it worked out.

I know this is really late, however, I need to say this. I want to apologize for being too hard on your product when I reviewed it. I didn't realize it was mainly for water sports, and when I went back and tried using it again while going white water rafting, it was incredible! I took your recommendation and put the life jacket over it, and it was protective, comfortable, and quite honestly it looked pretty cool :P. In the end, after testing this product for quite a while more, it's definitely a 5-star product, and it's an essential that everyone needs to have!
