Can anyone identify this vest?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy this used vest but for the life of me I can't determine what make/model this is. The owner said that they had bought off another op and doesn't know what it is. I did some googling and found that the Master series vest looks extremely similar but just not quite the same. Is this a knock off vest? The socket block setup is also kind of weird, I've never seen that kind of setup before. Just trying to do my due diligence before buying this backup vest.

*edit* Also I can't seem to find a way to change my username into my real name. I signed up back in 2015 through facebook connect (hence the username) but haven't visited the forum in a couple of years so I think the new forum software may have permanently set my name. I don't see a way of changing it through account settings. Do I have to message a mod/admin?


Thanks everyone!

Dunno about the vest- John Porter is right it looks like a modified Ultra Vest. Then again, I know nothing about that brand named above.

Tim Tyler is our board Admin. I'd guess he might be able to change your name. Go to Messages and send him one !

Could it be an early Glidecam vest? It was the first thing that hit me when I saw that “socket block”.. But why do you want to buy such an old and “damaged” vest? What rig do you have?

Lol Reviving this old post. Well I just a have a Tiffen Scout and looking to add onto my package and set myself up for a future upgrade for a new arm and sled that's all. I'm an extremely frugal guy and there are not many ops around my neck of the woods and even less willing to part with their stuff, so this maybe a "damaged" looking vest, but for the price he's selling it's a steal.
