LAS VEGAS – Jan. 2, 2013 – Hitcase, maker of rugged sports activity products for iPhone, introduces ChestR, a combination chest harness and mount designed for optimal hands-free photography and videography, at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. ChestR is a complete rethink of traditional helmet mounts used by extreme sports photographers and adventure filmmakers. It pairs seamlessly with Hitcase and Hitcase Pro and is the perfect enhancement to the StickR and Tripod mounts that come bundled with these ruggedized cases that transform the iPhone into a waterproof POV camera. The low profile harness snaps on and off with one click and offers a portable alternative to headgear mounts.
With adjustable straps, a neoprene body and polycarbonate chest plate, the ChestR is designed to withstand the elements, high elevation, shocks and violent impacts. The adjustable mount allows your iPhone to rotate 360 degrees and pivot 90 degrees, making it possible to capture footage at any angle. ChestR is GoPro Mount compatible and includes a bonus stash pocket and headphone cable loops.
“We’ve completely reimagined what it means to wear a mount,” said Hitcase CEO Brooks Bergreen. “We’ve used dozens of mounts over the years and critiqued them head-to-toe to find a solution right in the middle. The ChestR gives you license to capture better images and videos, and it feels just as good as it looks.”
Hitcase Pro is a waterproof, shockproof case that revolutionizes the way you use your iPhone. It includes a built-in, removable wide angle lens for capturing professional quality photos and videos, and doubles the effective field of view of your iPhone’s camera. A patented-pending ShockSeal design protects your phone from the elements while shielding it from shocks and drops, so you can adventure with confidence. The Hitcase Pro’s Railslide™ system makes it super easy to mount the case to just about anything with its auto-locking functionality and one-button trigger release. Hitcase’s free Vidometer app overlays your speed, altitude and G-Force on your videos so your friends know it really went down that way.
The Hitcase ChestR mount will officially debut at the ShowStoppers media event at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 8, 2013. The mount is now available for $49.99 at www.hitcase.com. Hitcase will also showcase the full product line at the Dr. Bott booth, North Hall #5825.
