I can tell you from testing this in the last few days that, while wearing the vest and operating the arm, you don't notice any difference in performance whatsoever. It's still able to be strapped tightly around the shoulders, chest, and waist. It still supports the weight of the arm and HD-4000 without any noticeable different to me. I'd wager you could find a replacement piece if the aesthetics bother you, but in my opinion it works just as intended. Glidecam HD-4000 system cushioned handle, 12 counter weights, mounting bolts, etc.
2 Hex-wrenches for easy tension adjustment. Various mounting bolts and washers. Everything in the main picture is what you get. Overall, this thing is in pretty darn good shape apart from the crack which I've done my best to point out in a few pictures. This vest operates really well, is very clean, and snaps together in a breeze.I'll do my best to answer inquiries during the sale.
