of the most comfortable vest out there

I tried the vest last year at the IBC and I can also say it is probably the most comfortable FM vest I've ever worn (I'm a BM user). Very well padded and very adjustable. I'm sure it can andle heavy cameras.

I have tried many FM vests and the comfort this one gives you, are simply the best I've tried yet.
Anyone of you Sachtler Act 2 vest owners out there, want to tell about it?
What you like and what you don't like about it.

Tomas, thanks for your reply.
I think there was already a discussion regarding this... vest choice is very much personal. I liked ACT2 vest after trying it in CINEC, but for my taste it had too many belts and cushions in the back, but it felt comfortable and the price is also good.
I know that it's a personal thing.
My mind is already set on getting this vest.
Just wanted to hear other users, what they think of it.

I would love to try the Pro vest, but I'm not one of the smallest guys, and the ones I know, who are using the Pro, are all smaller then I am.
Before you pull the plug, try PRO vest if you didn't...

the reason me being so persuasive is that myself i was planning to buy ACT2 vest, as i couldn't find PRO vest anywhere near around me. Out of nowhere Swedish operator came to my country with his own rig and PRO vest, i put that on, it fit well. Went to the show with the idea try all the rest - WK, Sachtler, Tiffen.... and guess what. Despite _really_ good price i could get on Sachtler, I ordered more expensive PRO. Touch, light and very comfy, at least for me.

It would be lovely if PRO is available on the next IBC with a complete set...

Worth a look before you make a decision...

The only thing that looks a little scary to me is all the plastic buckles, but I guess they are no worse/better than the ski boot style closures on the LX vest.

There are no problems with plastic buckles. I had a Sachtler vest old style (5 years) and ACT2 (2 yeas). And I'm fly with heavy cameras.
