About this project
We all know the GoPro® is a great camera for capturing adventure. Whether you’re hooking into a fish at your favorite river, bombing up a trail on your mountain bike, or climbing your favorite route. But what about the moments in between? Thus we created the Travler, a vintage inspired leather case for your GoPro®.
We wanted something that was easy to carry around town...
While going on a hike...
or for the unforgettable moments....
See how others love their Travler case almost as much as they love adventure. Thank you Instagrammers for the love.
The product is made out of hand selected high quality top grain leather. We hand stitch the product using a coarse wax thread giving the product durability and unique style.
The Travler case comes in three versions that fit all Hero 3® and Hero 4® models. The Travler does not fit the the Hero, Hero +, or Hero 2 models.
The product is designed as an alternative to the standard plastic housing. The Travler provides a soft protective case that helps carry the camera, and gives your GoPro® unique style. The Travler is not shock proof, nor waterproof, and it does not mount to the existing GoPro® mounting system.
Whether you have the touch screen model or not, the Travler will fit your GoPro®. We even have a model for the LCD Touch BacPac™.
We are offering three color options; Black, Brown, and Teal to match what suits you.
We believe in the importance of hard work, and we put our passion into our product,
We’ve given you access to all the buttons on the Camera. You can even access the SD card and charge port if you choose.

Risks and challenges
We are confident in our ability to deliver this product. We have great relationships with our local vendors, and they are looking forward to building this product with us.
We have primary and backup sources available for all components. Depending upon the volume, some components may need addition production time. We are passionate and committed to our success, and we will work around the clock to make sure every backer is happy with their reward.
We have finalized our gold prototypes, through trial and error, and have worked out all the issues. A production run with your help will not be an issue. We thank you for your support in helping us bring this unique tool to life.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We will send a survey at the end of the funding campaign, where you will get to tell us what color you want, and what model of Hero® you have!
Yes! We have you covered whether the LCD is built in on the Hero 4, or if you're using the LCD BacPac® on your Hero 3, or Hero 4 Black.
No, due to the nature of the design, there would be a significant gap in the case if it were installed without the LCD BacPac®.
No. Unfortunately the Hero, and the New Hero plus models are designed to never be taken out of the waterproof case. The Travler leather case will only fit over the GoPro® by itself, not around the plastic case.
