Walter Klassen Vest vs Action Cam 100lb backmounted vest vs Exovest backmounted

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

So has anyone tried and compared these vests : Walter Klassen, ActionCam Back Mounted 100lb vest, Exovest backmounted.

 

The Exovest is a front and back mounted vest I guess, but in this case I wanted to know how is the experience with it when backmounted.

 

 

Thanks!

Vahe

Like Gregor says, you'll notice very little difference between front and rear mounting with the Exovest, so I'd opt for front to keep a thinner profile. Arms seem to work better when front mounted too.

Yes, the arm coming around from the back makes you wider.

 

The weight's always out front, so front or back mounting makes little difference to the feel. The only compelling reason to rear mount is when you use the 3rd arm section to increase your boom range by 50%.

I am very curious about any of your experiences with backmounted vests like Walter Klassen? Actioncam? Didn't Sachtler (or I guess Arri) have one too??

 

Pros vs cons??

I suppose it's obvious you would have less room to maneuver tight spaces, but as far as comfort is it any different??

 

Is it all about operator preference?
