GoPro on a Timbuk2 Backpack

I have the need to mount a GoPro on a Timbuk2 backpack. I initially was going to fasten a fixed mount on the strap or top of the backpack, but found the cheap official head mount for GoPro and tweaked it a bit. Here is what I did.

Once in the mount, the angled bracket allows the cam to be fully-adjusted vertical when worn.

Seems to work okay and stay connected but removable when necessary. We’ll see how it goes.
