VMag chin mount

Recommended Posts

Anyone has experience with the VMag chin mount on a Kiss?
The mount looks super secure and it's very nice to be able to remove the camera while keeping your helmet on but I'm wondering how it will disconnect if a lateral force is apply in the event where a line pulls on it sideways.
How does it compare to Grellfab?

I got this reply from VMag but I'm still interested in the comparison with Grellfab if anyone know.

Arrow colors
In red: a line caught in the camera for whatever reason
In blue: the force required to pull the camera off the mount
In green: the resultant force in the system where friction will probably play a role

I would be more concerned about losing it from the occasional combat RW encounter. The mag and Grellfab also protrude so far, which makes interference with the mud flaps while looking to the side under canopy worse. 

I love the https://chinmount.com/ alternative. I haven’t seen anything so low profile, so inexpensive, so well made, and can be used on a Kiss helmet. The ability to dislodge, and break or cutaway is superior to the mag IMO.
