I'm looking to sell the original vest that came with my Merlin Am and Vest kit. This vest is the same style used for the Pilot rigs, and is completely interchangeable with them. It includes the newest "Buckle Mod", straight from Tiffen, that allows you to put the vest on and take it off without changing the vest's fit, or making the annoying Velcro ripping sounds. The Buckle Mod was only used for 2 jobs before I upgraded to a new vest.

The socket block and lower waist strap on this vest are brand new, just ordered a few weeks ago. The only condition problem is a few scratches, which are pretty minor considering the 3+ years of use this has seen, some grease pencil on the main spar, and a bit of sticky residue left over from an ID tag of mine, right next to the socket block. I'm just putting this out there, since I know that as a buyer, I like to know what I'm getting before I buy it too (you can also see most of this in the pictures). Other than that, the vest is still in beautiful shape.

In terms of price, I'm open to offers. A kit of this vest plus the Merlin Arm runs for $1500, if that gives you any idea. I'm more than willing to negotiate - I'd rather get something for this vest than have it sit in my apartment and gather more dust!

Thanks for looking!

If the lack of a price has scared anyone off, perhaps this will help: I'd love to get $450 for it, but feel free to send an offer! As I said, this isn't doing anything for me right now, and I'd much rather sell it for a low price than have it sit in my apartment unused for another 3 months.

The vest is still for sale, and at the moment there's a Merlin arm on eBay with a Buy-It-Now of $550. I have no idea if it's legitimate or not, but you could end up with a nice lightweight vest and arm for around $1000 if it is!
