    +1. I'll steal nice sprayers that other boarders have thrown away, too! Also, when sprayers aren't spraying well, I'll put some vinegar in a container and try to spray that through and let it soak...

    You could go to Ebay and find the Tipperary knockoff vest for about $100. I got one and it's hard to find any difference from my actual Tipp.
