    Pros:

    Good price. Rubber feet has 2 positions, closed or open. For really weird situations, you can even have one foot closed and the other open. They also help absorb minor bumps.

    Cons:

    If you don't get the velcros really tight, the gadget mounted will sometimes slide around a bit. In other words, if you have a camera set pointing forward straight at 90 degrees; once you start bouncing a bit on your bike the mounting angle might change a little.
    You can fix this of course by tilting the camera, I have even done this while moving on the bike and checking the screen. You can see this on my videos, the camera starts pointing down and I just pull it back up with my hand.

    OtherThoughts:

    I tried putting this device on my Avenir bike helmet. I just couldn't get a good position. Depending on how the vent holes are positioned on your helmet, this may or may not be possible for you.

    Bottomline:

    Simple to use, cheap and does what it's supposed to do.
    If I lose or break mine, I will probably buy the exact same thing again.
