Steadicam Pilot Dimensions needed urgently!

Tried hard to find a thread with the appropriate info to no avail, so here is the question:
What are the dimensions of Steadicam Pilot completely folded? I am trying to fit it in a suitcase when I buy it of course. Can I fit the vest in it (can I fold it adequately) so it doesn't brake? What is the vest size when completely folded.
I know that the steadicam comes with a transport backpack. Does the vest and rest of the steadicam Pilot's components fit all in the backpack?

Thanks

Yes, it all fits in the backpack. The vest collapses nearly flat, and the arm separates via aircraft pin into two sections. The Pilot is extremely portable as a result. There's even room for a Merlin sled in the backpack!
