I have heard great things about the Chesty GoPro camera chest mount, however, since I typically where a Camelbak when I ride, I figured it would be a good idea to make my own chest mount that works with/mounts to the Camelbak.
I also saved money.
Very easy and inexpensive and customizable to whatever backpack you use.

Video of the finished product in use can be found here:

Step 1: Materials

Lexan sheet

3/4" wide Velcro

Small machine screws, washers and nuts

1/4"-20 short machine screw

GoPro tripod mount
From aluminum. Works great!!!
That's nice, it should be a point of view different from the typical point of view "over the head", but in case of a fall it should be very dangerous. I think it's better that you add a larger and stiff plate, and also a sort of cushioning between plate and chest, to apportion a possible knok on a larger surface!!
Thanks for your opinion, but I don't think it is dangerous at all.
I hope it will never happen again, but a friend of mine felt on his camera and broke his rib...
love the idea! do you have any videos to share?
Here is a video using the modified mount. <br>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=017kFOcecKc
