**Note** The harness is a very personal item and should fit well to the operator. This item does not have to be purchased with a package. I am willing to sell it separately. I am just over 6 foot tall and weigh about 185. The vest has adjustment room for more or less on the ends and could be repadded by Walter Klassen for other body dimensions as well.

There you have it. I can detail things even further for those who are serious about purchasing as there is more to it all but difficult to list here and I understand that some of it can be a bit confusing. All gear is in pristine condition with many parts being brand new or unused as I had multiples of much of it. I take excellent care of all my gear as anyone who knows me can tell you so this is a really great opportunity for someone. Most of the pictures I have of the gear are too large of files to post here so it is better if I can email photos to those who are truly serious about buying and not just window shopping.

This is professional level gear that can be worked with right away. Needs no tinkering, upgrades, fixes, etc. I use these rigs, arm, harness and accessories each and every day (aside from the new/unused/backup gear I am putting in) on theatrical features, Television Series, MOV, Commercials, Corporate, all of it. Look me up on IMDB or steadicam-ops.com to back up what I'm saying. Don't email me through the forum as I don't check it all the time. Use my email address below for questions, details, photos, etc. Thanks.
