Funny, I was wondering the same thing! The Klassen harness is definately on my list...and I'm always interested in "used" gear that's been expensive and "loved" by the owner as most of our gear is generally.
Guillermo....you gonna grab one?

hi guys,

Jennifer here again.

We have definitely had some successful reselling of our harnesses, usually an operator sells when he wants to upgrade from an older to a newer harness. It can absolutely work fine as long as the two operators (buyer and seller) are relatively the same fit, though we can work with adding/removing foam padding etc. to componsate for some difference. This doesn't require bringing the harness to our shop for any custome fitting unless the buyer wants something specific done to it.

Walter often works with operators when they sell their harness to help compare the fit and compatability of potential buyers. This process works best when we have the measurements of the person looking to buy so we can cross reference with the harness for sale. We take measurements of people at shows like CineGear and Cinec, but there is also a "measure yourself" section on our web site.

hope that helps,

Jennifer :)

Edit: Bryan, I just noticed you're here in TO. have we measured you before? you should come visit the shop some time.

Hey Jennifer,

Thanks for the extra info!
Yes, I'm in T.O. and I would love to come visit your shop. The major reason you haven't measured me or seen me at your shop is because I have this bad habit of writing big cheques too easily...and I'm trying to be diciplined these days, as I have a few more purchases to make before the Klassen Harness. I plan to operate steadicam for a while so it's only a matter of time before we meet I'm sure!

All the best,
