Huge jib ON a stabilizer vest?

9 foot jib on a vest.. Because what the FAQ else am I supposed to do at 2 in the morning?

It worked but it wasn't comfortable or easy.
Strangely, the jib works amazingly well using nothing more than a shoulder strap. For some weird reason it's SOOO much easier and more comfortable than using it on a tripod. Neither way works well for walking (It's a jib, not a Steadicam. ), but it's just far more portable and easier to reposition shots while it's strapped to you. And very steady, looks like it was shot on a tripod. Trust me, if it's steady enough for me, it's steady enough for anyone, I don't take that word lightly.
