Thanks you guys and gals, it looks like unanimously we are on the bp/w side :) I have few steel and alu plates hopefully one will fit. I have a couple of slotted with cambands. I just need to get a single wing and weight pockets for her

I’m betting you’re going to have to get a short plate for her.

You are correct Marie, they all are too long. We have to go for a short plate

Shrimps know! I checked on OxyCheq's website. They have short aluminum, but no steel plates. If you really want steel, you'll have to go Halcyon. $236.

EDIT: Oops, forgot you're in the Great White North. That will be more $$$

@elan

I was poking around on DGX's website earlier today and found this package. The size small harness comes with a shorter (16") soft plate. Wondering if this might be an option. $399 US.

Thank you Marie. I was checking around and found the whole eclipse system sold here for about 750US with a local pickup plus our tax. I think shipping from US will add another $100 to DGX (plus they still charge us tax) so 500 vs 750 I might just go with Halcyon as I already have one set and really like it.

Stepfen I do not think c370 is available in Canada and then it will be an extra unnecessary expense (I have all those stages i mentioned above already). Its more about what reg I need to pull of my stages or backgas and give to her and what is left for me :)
Sorry, I thought you were looking to buy new regs.
