It can survive depths of up to 33 feet, and it can take professional quality audio and video during all of your outdoor adventures. If you just scored one of the new GoPro Hero 4 Session cameras, these GoPro accessories will help you get the most out of this pint-sized GoPro camera. Read on to see five must-have GoPro HERO4 Session accessories.
1. GoPro Headstrap Mount + Quick Clip
According to GoPro, the HERO4 Session is compatible with all GoPro mounts. If you don’t already have one of these head mounts, now is the perfect time to grab one. This headstrap mount can be worn over your helmet while skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, or cycling. It is versatile enough to work with lots of different sports, and it will also fit lots of different head shapes and sizes, making it a nice GoPro accessory to share with friends or family.
You can wear the mount over your bare head, over a helmet, or over a hat. The Quick Clip part of the mount is designed to be low-profile, and lets you mount the camera to a backwards ball cap, or other objects that are between 3mm and 10mm thick.

3. GoPro 3-Way Grip/Arm/Tripod
Selfie sticks may get a bad rap from some folks, but they can actually be a great addition to your stable of GoPro accessories.

The tripod stores inside the handle, which is a nice, compact design choice.
This photography accessory is waterproof, making it ideal for use around or in the water. This GoPro accessory is compatible with all existing GoPro models. At its minimum collapsed length, it measures 7.5 inches. When expanded fully, it measures 20 inches.
