Always wear your vest fully zipped when active. Your controller fits in the smaller front, right or left side pocket on the same side as your drive line. This is the side that your drive line exits your body. The batteries should be placed clip down within the larger, left and right side, rear pockets. Alway keep your lines untangled and free of kinks. Always wear your driveline anchor. Your vest should fit comfortably snug, not tight. A video may be viewed at:
