I am selling my Sauve/Klassen vest that was modified and modernized by Walter Klassen several years ago.  The upgrades included a new inflatable bladder and pads, a new double latched front and new leather trim all around.  Incidentally, the cost of the upgrades were $1200.00, so you are getting a pretty great deal.

It is the Traditional vest with a double latched front panel.  This  front panel is great for providing some flexibility in sizing, so extra clothes and weight changes can be accommodated.

I am 5' 10", my waist is 33/34" and my weight fluctuates between 174 and 182, depending on the season.  The vest fits me well and should do fine with someone up to a 35" waist.  If you are taller by an inch or two than I am, then this vest should also fit you well. 

The vest has been used and used well, but always taken care of.  The carbon fiber is in great condition and the pads are fine.  The arm is stiff and the adjustable socket block works well

I am asking $1800.00 plus shipping, which is a great deal for someone who wants to get into the world of back mounted vests or wants a high quality second vest without the large investment.

I you are interested and have questions, feel free to give me a call at 917 796 4217.  Come by and try it on if you live in NYC.
