Hey all, I have a friend whom is a girl and is on the smaller side - around 5'2". She is looking to buy a vest to use to practice/use with my pro rig. She's trying to keep this affordable, so I wanted to know if anyone has used the compact flyer vest (http://www.tiffen.com/displayproduct.html?tablename=steadicam&itemnum=803-7800-01) with a larger rig like a pro cinelive OR has a smaller vest they are looking to sell. Thanks.

Cool thanks for the fast response Chris, do you think there will be any problem with the weight of a bigger rig on the zephyr vest? I use to have one when I took the workshop but I can't remember if the piece holding the socket block is metal or plastic. Figure we'll have to get a pro socket block to put on the vest. I'm actually not sure if I can find a zephyr vest anymore either do you know if Tiffen is still selling them / are the Aero 30 vest the same ones?

While not inexpensive... She should invest in a proper vest. I have a Pro vest that I bought used, but it fits me so well. So probably, Pro is still able to custom make one? And I also have a Walter Klassen vest who custom makes all his vests. He is located in Toronto, but he might still have my measurements. I'm about the same height.
