Re: [FrogNog] Safest way to set up a tertiary canopy rig?

The cutaway rig at my dropzone is a belly mount that uses a capewell cutaway system. The capewells are put inboard of the shoulder straps and once the first canopy is cutaway, then they don't interfere. The only problem with this was that the first time I saw someone use it he exited belly to earth, which caused the belly mount PC bridle to wrap around his arm! Shocked The next time the guy exited correctly and it worked fine. The only negative, in my inexperienced opinion, of the capewell is that it is a multi-step cutaway process, but if you intend to use it for an intentional cutaway, then this shouldn't be a problem.
