Purchasing harness only Can't Post

Has anyone here purchased just a harness without the container directly from a manufacturer? If so, how much did you pay?

I don't have access to a harness machine and I want to attach a custom container onto an existing harness. A base gear project.

Couldn't you use a 2nd hand rig?

Just find a local master rigger with a Class 7 machine to build it. You are going to need a Class 7 machine to attach the container to the harness anyways.

I made a tertiary rig out of an existing harness/container system and just cut the container off of the harness.

thanks.

I'm looking to have a disguise base rig, something that looks like a soft suitcase for a computer.

Funny, most manufacturers use Class 204 or 208 zig-zag machines (pulling E-Thread) to sew harnesses to containers.
