Hello, I'm relatively new to operating and want to invest in a vest soon. I'm 6,3 weight 170lb and have a 32 waist. What are some good options for tall skinny ops.

Thanks

The PRO vest is custom sized and fits like a glove.

Try several vests out - the fit of a vest is very personal.

Like Jerry said, try at least 4 vests with a decent size load on them each one will have a different feel. The Klassen back mount , the Exo vest , the tiffen vest and the Pro vest

They are all very different

Thanks for all of your replies I've tried on the normal sized Tiffin vest if it's okay but it's a little bit too big in the hips. But need to try on the other three. As well as the tiffen compact vest.

I'm in the same situation... Really oriented to Pro Vest, for documentation and video, but I have to try it first!

The Exo can go very narrow, and I know of one op that just had them make one with custom velcro waist straps to go even smaller...
