    I know a lot of people attach them to their guns, but i use a sling. 90% of the time i am diving with out a hooded suit. I have wore the head strap with the hood, but i just dont trust the strap without the hood over it. i feel like it will come off and i won't even know it.

    how do you guys film?

    Maybe a floaty door would atleast make it go to the surface if you lost it.

    Or, try one of those small clip lanyards for hats. I've had hats blow off dozens of time at 60mph in boats and it keeps it with me. Short enough that it should not interfere with head movement. Clip it to your mask strap.

    I would use a cord or something people loose them for sure I found one last summer diving in Key Largo.

    My friend actually uses a chest strap when spearfishing. I don't know if he adjusts it so it captures whatever is in front of him or something else.
