What depths are you guys taking the GoPros

Hello all, just wondering what depths you guys are taking the action cams? I recently bought a cheap cam that does decent enough footage for documenting a few trips but the case recommendation is 98feet..... I saw a few aftermarket cases for 145ft but has anyone gone deeper with them? this cam also fits a go pro case if needed. I plan to hit some spots 170 or so but not frequently. 140 is normal depth on most trips... anyone have any feedback?

I have taken my hero 3+ to 70 feet on scuba with now problem. But I think I read somewhere that 130 ft is the max.

You want to purchase a 60 Meter case for it (198 feet). Check on ebay or amazon.

The gopro 60m housing should be fine. I've taken one to 105m / 344ft without any leaks but I turned it on beforehand, no pushing buttons at depth. I was very impressed that it survived!
