I'm about 5'6 1/2" , 150Lbs. and 32" waist. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Hi Andy I'm about your hight and have used the Flyer, I'd go for the compact vest.
Thank you very much.
It's hard to wait but I think I'll save up a month or two more to get the flyer instead of the pilot.

Anyway, call Steadicam & ask - I did... I'm 5'8, 195 and they suggested the regular, as the compact is designed for small-framed bodies, especially women.

Yes, we do offer longer strap sets for the Flyer Vest. You get a longer waist strap, and 2 chest strap extensions.
To address the OP, Andy my feeling is that due to your height, you'd be good in a standard Flyer vest. The Compact vest is reduced along the "Y" Chest spar, with a shorter telescoping bar to go with it. 5 ' 6 " may be taller than you can get away with on the Compact Vest. You'd want to avoid winding up with a vest that is a bit too short.
You're slender, it sounds. The straps can be tightened and adjusted to allow for a slender torso like yours.
And, Hi Tom !! Your memory serves you correctly. We had a customer who requested that we make him a longer set. Seemed a good idea- till then, my home-stitched longer straps were the only ones. We offer an easy-to-plug-in set now.
Best to all,
