Taking a ride with the READYACTION chest harness

IMG_0412

Morning all. How’s your Tuesday? Put your hands up if you remember our piece about the READYACTION chest harness? We showed how it worked in an all-action video of my kitchen. Oh yes. Rock ‘n ROLL!

However, there’s a lot more potential in the READYACTION kit, and this weekend I finally had time to properly test the thing out. I strapped in an iPhone (in a case) and screwed the clamp down tightly onto the phone. I’ve got to say, there’s no plastic screws or any flimsy nonsense here. These are proper long screws and they fit to a properly tough, rigid mount. It really does hold the phone well and has curved rubber sections at the top and bottom to ensure you don’t have a scratched phone or case.

The main mount fits to a plate which keeps your phone stable and there’s brass fittings with teeth to keep the phone at the required angle.

Once the phone is in you might have to position the phone to the left or right in order to reach the required record button on screen. I did also find that tilting the phone to the right angle took some trial and error, as you’ll see below on my bike. A lot of handlebar action going on there. However, I have returned without a broken phone and it did indeed hold the handset firmly throughout the ride.

I did feel a little self-concious, but to be honest there’s more and more cyclists with cameras, so I didn’t get any funny looks. Here’s how it looks with the other mount for a camera..

If you want one of these, they’re just $45 from readyactiongo.com. It’s a pretty cool solution to filming your cycling, skiing, skating, running, climbing or, heck filming your kitchen even.

The body harness itself, by the way, is made from elasticated but strong straps. These can be adjusted to fit on any size of chest for a tight fit. As you can see above, you have two straps over your shoulders and then another around your chest with a clip on your right for clicking it all together

So, here’s the videos I recorded at the weekend. See if you can guess where I was cycling ;) Head over to readyactiongo.com for other mounts and further information.
