ive seen some forums about them somewhere, the seller is also known as cinecity ( . i remember someone mentioning that particularly the vest was cheap and used crappy plastic fasteners that could be a real hazard, but that maybe it was an alright system with a few modifications. id be a bit careful since without a quality gimbal (and potentially other poor quality parts) the whole thing might just not be that useful. i have no experience with it, thats just what i remember seeing on other forums. unfortunately i tend to think that its not worth the risk spending on over $1000 on an unknown piece of equipment that, if poorly made, could damage the rest of your expensive equipment. ive also heard that certain components from the seller are surprisingly reasonable quality and their support isnt too bad (they may let people return stuff if it isnt up to expectation) considering they are an slightly sketchy indian company that copies other people's equipment, but it might be a matter of luck.
