Re: [sunkenstate] Butt strap to prevent falling out of a harness
Make it high up, and elastic so you don't limit the degree to which you can harness turn your parachute. Without harness input, your turns are uncoordinated and you risk collapsing in turbulence. See article: "Clean Up Your Turns"
The truth is, unless your rig does not fit you, the likelihood of falling out of a properly adjusted harness are almost zero. The few on record are overweight tandem students. Do not mistake the magnitude of repulsion for the probability of actualization. (In other words, when something really freaks us out, we tend to assign a higher probability to that possibility.)
Tighten your chest strap before your legstraps, and the rig should hold you in just fine.
