They both  have there pros and cons Gopro better quality and a whole array of mounts and accessories but poor battery life and it looks like scaffolding on a helmet,The drift is obviously slimmer with a huge battery life but they do have some software issues especially the earlier ones,all depends on your needs, the Gopro session are a good little camera with a reasonable battery life although your limited to 1080 or 720p

Thanks Rick.

1080 more than adequate considering most laptops / computers not 4k.  Will look at the session as well.

I use a RoadHawk. Doesn't seem a popular choice for whatever reason but I've found it rugged and reliable so far (2+ years).

Thanks Alberto. Not looking for a dash cam type though, more the "wearable" style.

Ditto. Thanks for the link.
I'm looking to replace my vsys front rear setup with a better quality unit as I like messing about making videos with 'Racerender'   It looks to be suitable as it is waterproof and can be left connected to start recording at ignition on.
Cheers. I will check it out
