I am the newbie on the list. New owner of a Pilot as well.
How easy is it to strap on the pilot for someone like me who has a slender frama but a good pot belly? I have just tried it on once and, yes it is a challenge as the front part is straight and not curved to fit bellys like mine!
(And I am using the rig with an EX3.)
Any advice will help.
Thanks and Happy Easter to those celebrating.

U are not the first w a gut.
U are going to have to go over the fine supporting materials w your rig and use your common sense to figure out a lot of this
Give it lots of effort and buy the operator handbook and see what u learn
Have fun learning.

Excuse my tone if it was short with you but it seems if we crack the door on help with the newbies we get the baby bird syndrome and ask for help on every single detail that you need to do the work on yourself.
Please do look at all the stuff that Tiffen sends with the rig and you'll figure it out.
It really is good stuff and very complete. The book will also do wonders but we have to force you back to doing the work. The internet is too easy to force us into doing your work.
Common sense will rule a lot of what you learn and we know you're a smart guy so go to it.
Come back when you've spent a lot of time working out all kinds of things, not just the vest.
Its hard, don't kid yourself.
