There seem to be too many on the market for performers to choose from. Does anyone have a valid suggestion between Posey and Humane non-gimmicked for new escape artist? I have spoken with Cannon, performancejackets, enchantmentmagic, etc...Still need good adivce.

Thanks

http://www.cannonsgreatescapes.com/Shop ... chase.html This is the one I got. I love the look, very high quality. It is gimmicked, but it comes with instructions to make it legit. Which is actually quite easy to do.

If you want an ungimmicked jacket to start with, go with the Humane Restraint jacket; it's easier to escape from and is generally less expensive.

This one http://www.cannonsgreatescapes.com/Shop ... chase.html
that Fallingblood suggested seems to be a better buy b\c use can take off the gimmick and it looks a bit "meaner". What do you think. Also I do not mind increase in price.

Sent you a PM. As I say, if you don't mind spending a little more, by all means go with the Cannon jacket; it's an impressive jacket.

If you want a good jacket that's custom made, give Performance Jackets a try. I've dealt with them dozens of times, and Patrick Kelly is a good friend of mine. Their prices are reasonable, and they have a wide variety of styles and colors.

Take measurments of your upper body, and match them with the strait jacket sizes.

Thanks all for your help and suggestions. I ordered my SJ from Cannon this weekend. Medium size will fit up to chest size 46 inches around.
