Hey everyone,


Been using the Steadicam Pilot for a few years, on a very occasional basis and I'm generally very happy with it.

Tempted to upgrade to the Aero 30 as I'm now mostly flying Red cameras, but in the meantime the one thing I'd like to look at is upgrading the crappy Merlin/Pilot vest with the plastic chestpiece of doom.

Any recommendations for something a little sturdier, not too expensive and that can easily take the pilot arm?


Thanks all.

There are flyer/scout vests on eBay from time to time. Maybe talk to Tiffen about getting the aero 15 vest? It's no longer plastic!
