In this post, you'll learn how to make a DIY carrying case for GoPro and accessories.
Traditional camera cases don't work well for the GoPro. They cater to larger cameras with bigger lenses. You'll need a different carrying case for GoPro and accessories.
The GoPro is known for being a tough camera and, inside of the waterproof housing, it is. But the glass lens area of the housing can get scratched, and what about when it's not inside the housing? It's not so tough then.
In this post, we'll share 3 DIY projects. One of these might be right for you, or might get you thinking about your own unique DIY GoPro camera case.
DIY a Carrying Case for GoPro and Accessories
In the following 3 videos, you'll learn how to make a GoPro case out of a pencil case, a hard-sided case, and a tool box.
1) DIY GoPro Carrying Case – from a Pencil Case (Video)
This first GoPro carrying case is nice and small. It would easily fit into a backpack, so the portability is great.
2) DIY GoPro Carrying Case from a Hard-sided Case (Video)
I like this next option because of how organized everything is. This case design is also great because as you buy more gear (and you will) you can keep making room by removing more styrofoam.
The styrofoam also protects against scratching.
3) DIY Carrying Case for GoPro from a Toolbox (Video)
For the following option, you might want to consider putting the camera housings in some kind of a protective pouch to protect the glass lens area from scratches.
Otherwise, it looks like a great idea. Everything is organized really well in this one!

A lot of people are really into DIY projects – and other are not.
If you would rather just have one shipped to you, this GoPro case might be a good fit. It's only around $13.00, is well organized, has room for two cameras, a bunch of other gear and two extra batteries.
