Cleaning some stuff : this vest was kept as a backup since I bought a new one 3 years ago.
Vest is the first gen upgraded with the latest pads.
It just needs a good cleaning , all the buckles work good. Needs a new home.
-One of the socket bloc screw is a standard Phillips slot screw. You might want to order a new screw from Arri. This one does the job but it's a bit ridiculous to have two different screws to raise the socket block.
-The 2 lower back straps are non-existent on the older vest. That's why you have the clips from the new pads but no anchor.
And yes, this is the first vest out from the Sachtler factory at the time (2001), you can ask Curt O Shaller.
Price is 1900$USD + shipping.
Much prefer if you have a fedex account.
