Oh snap, Christmas is almost here so it`s time for the annual “spend all my money” 😀 If you are a GoPro fan or you have a someone in your holiday list that has a GoPro camera then you have probably considered getting something nice for that special person. Here`s my Top GoPro gifts for Christmas 2017 list in no particular order but it consists of my favorite gear that I would be STOKED to get as a gift this year.

Feiyu Tech G5 splashproof gimbal

This is hands down my favorite gimbal on the market right now! I reviewed it a while back (read the Feiyu Tech G5 review here) and I haven`t come across a better one so far. Feiyu tech has a newer gimbal out called the WG2 but being a wearable gimbal it has some limitations compared to the amazing G5. Here`s a quick rundown of why this is THE gimbal to buy:

  • Amazing build quality
  • Splash-proof!
  • Super silent motors
  • Huge battery life
  • Replaceable battery
  • Easy controls
  • Works perfectly
  • Nice packaging
  • Neoprene carry pouch
  • Two tripod screw mounts
  • Compatible with many action cameras
  • GoPro charging from the gimbal
  • Remote control from the app
  • Extension pole capability
  • Connects to the app very fast

Pro Standard Grill Mount

Pro Standard Grill Mount is a freakishly universal and useful mount! (Check out the review here)I love products that are dead simple but have so many different uses. Pro Standard Grill Mount is one of those amazing products – use it as a mouth mount (pretty obvious) or a mini tripod or a hook mount or a belt clip or as a hand grip or whatever you can think of. The material called HOLYCARBONATE is tough as nails while being lightweight. This one is a great stocking stuffer material because it`s actually really cheap so if your boss is an asshole and doesn`t give Christmas bonuses then you don`t have to sell your kidneys to buy this one. Here`s a small list of why Pro Standard Grill Mount made it into the Top GoPro gifts for Christmas 2017 list.

  • Super lightweight
  • Compact
  • Versatile
  • You can breathe with it in your mouth
  • You can fit it to suit your teeth, even if you have them all crooked in all directions 😀
  • Re-moldable

Gnarbox

Want to edit your GoPro footage on the go without a laptop? I do. And so do a lot of people, this is how Gnarbox was probably born. This little dust and splashproof powerhouse is your pocket computer that uses your mobile device as a touchscreen to edit your videos and photos the minute after you finish filming. Gnarbox is capable of editing 4k videos and RAW files that your mobile devices usually can`t handle. You can connect your External HDD devices to it or import stuff from your phone or insert SD cards and edit photos from your DRLS. Gnarbox can do it all. Here`s my review of it.

And here`s a list of why this belongs on the list:

  • Amazing build quality
  • small
  • lightweight
  • Packs a lot of computing power
  • High-speed SSD
  • SD and Micro SD slots
  • USB2 and USB3
  • Ability to use it as a backup device
  • 4k video editing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Super responsive support team
  • Frequent updates and new features

Pakpod – The Packable, Waterproof, Adventure Tripod

Pakpod is definitely not the average tripod and when I first saw it online it kind of reminded me of a ninja weapon that is disguised as camera equipment. GoPros are meant to be taken in touch dirty situations so it only makes sense your tripod can withstand the elements aas well. You will probably not want to stick your expensive Manfrotto or any other expensive tripod in sand and salt water or in mud or risk it falling off to hard pavement but Pakpod can take the punishment with ease. It`s light and small to fit in your backpack and is a perfect candidate for the Top GoPro gifts for Christmas 2017. Take a look at the overview of Pakpod here.

Key features of Pakpod are:

  • Lightweight: 15.5 ounces
  • Length when folded: 12.75″
  • Waterproof and freeze-proof
  • Patented, one-twist locking system
  • Easily stashable in a small bag, pack or suitcase
  • Legs rapidly extend and retract with the push of a button
  • Legs move independently through a 180 degree range of motion
  • Constructed from high-impact ABS plastic and stainless steel
  • Rotating feet stake into grass, dirt, sand and snow
  • Unparalleled level of versatility
  • 36 tie-down points

GoScope Boost PLUS Brush Camo

GoScope Boost PLUS

If the stocking you want to fill with gifts is a long one then go for the GoScope Boost PLUS. In my mind, this is the king of GoPro poles. It`s not that it`s absolutely the best one because there are really good GoPro poles out there and some have its advantages over the GoScope Boost PLUS but why I love about it is that it`s a freaking military grade pole 🙂 Read my review and you will see why this is one of the top players in the market, plus GoScope is an amazing family business so I would rather leave my money to GoScope and help support the wonderful people running the operation.

Key Features are:

  • Nice camo design
  • Super-durabel, really feels like a weapon
  • Dual clips, no need for any brackets to attach two items
  • Unique locking system
  • 40″  – pretty long reach
  • Good rubber grip
  • WiFi remote clip
  • Wrist lanyard included
  • Packaging so well thought out
