Kamisafe 45M Underwater Waterproof Diving Protective Housing Cover Case for GoPro Hero 6 /5 Black Action Camera (Golden Edge)
If you need the same great protection for your new Hero 5 as you have had with previous GoPro models, this is a definite buy. It is the same materials they have been using for years, and they work great. The housing comes with an open back door and two waterproof ones, which is nice in case an o-ring gets damaged on one of them. Also, compared to GoPro's other accessories, this is one of the most fairly priced, especially for what you're getting. One more thing to keep in mind is that the filter size for this case is different than the Hero 3+ or 4 housings (not sure about older models, but I would assume they are different as well), so if you have filters for those you will need to get new ones.
The one thing that I didn't know before purchasing that I wish I did is that you actually have to remove the front glass panel from the Hero 5 before putting it into this case. This isn't a huge issue, but it is hard to get off and feels like you might break it if you're not careful. Also, that little glass panel is quite small and could be lost or damaged easily, so also be careful not to lose it (though they do sell replacements).
So to conclude, this case is amazing. If you need better protection for your camera or need to go below 30 feet underwater, you should definitely get this. As long as you're careful with the Hero 5's front glass panel, you should be all set.
