I recently bought this to use with my GoPro on my Chesty harness while waterskiing. I haven't had a chance to use it yet because I found that when the GoPro is positioned in the standard upside-down position for the chesty, the Floaty doesn't fit (not enough space between camera and chest mount plate). When I go out again, I'm going to try repositioning the camera right way up in the alternative mounting position on my Chesty and I'll report back my experience.
The product itself probably gets the job done (haven't tested it yet) but overall it feels flimsy and prone to tear/break apart easily. I think what I expected, based on the picture here, was that the foam would be encased in a solid plastic enclosure which would've made it much more durable in feel. That said, it's a recent purchase still so time will tell whether or not I'm right about that.
Worth mentioning: In the package you get the float as well as a waterproof back door. The float has double-sided tape pre-attached to it and so you need to attach the float to the door yourself. No biggie, but mentioning it since nobody else did.

It works but that's it. The description states for a Hero 3+ but clearly this was for a HERO 2 as the HERO3+ Go Pro is smaller in size. Hence 1 star!

its one of the high priority accessories for the camera and its works. i have mine on even if there is only 1 percent chance that its going near water, it will be throwing money to the bottom of the ocean, letterly

Great product. Keeps your camera afloat. Remember, it won't float if you have a pole attached to it.
