Which one?

Well, contray to all family traditions, my gran gave me money for my birthday so I've now got enough for virtually any type of harness for Echo, which is something I really want as I spend a lot of time outside and feel so bad locking Echo up every time I go outside to work (I live on a farm). Mum really wants me to get a flight suit so he's not pooping everywhere as apparently it stains (it doesn't, but she won't believe me LOL), but I'm pretty good at sewing, so I think I could make a decent one that could be tailored to fit Echo and if it's only used inside when he doesn't need to be controlled, just where Mum doesn't want him pooping (ie hanging out watching TV with me and playing on the carpet etc), the problems of it not being secure aren't there.

So I'm also looking at harnesses and on my list of possibilities are

The Aviator Harness, $49.95+$5.20 postage

The Jazzy bird harness $14+$1.50 postage

Bird Harness $14+$9.25 postage

Flightsuit $24.60+$5.90 postage

I'm leaning towards the aviator harness, as it looks really safe and easy to put on, but not too sure on my skills at making a flight suit LOL, and don't ave the money for both.

i have a few of those cheap harnesses... i think the third link down, the one on the fake budgie...
i find them to be a perfectly fine design, the aviator by far would be the best harness (easiest to put on, least likely to distract) but my guys do still like to go out in the cheap harnesses, they are perfectly comfortable and the only drawback is that the shiny clip seems to be so interesting, even before they have ever worn it, they get to play with it, to familiarize the harness as a non-scary object, they all go crazy over the clip...
the feather tether i would only recommend for a large parrot or cockatoo, i have never found the design to work on a smaller bird

definitely post piks of your flight suit...
i would love to see, even though i have no use for one myself
