We were modifying and jumping any thing we could get our hands on. We found several deactivated 32' and/or 36' cargo chutes in storage. We cut 7-TU's in them and jumped them. We also had to modify the back packs to get them to fit. I was making $86 per month in the Navy, so I didn't care if the pack was larger, and more uncomfortable. After all I was skydiving!
The cargo chutes worked alright. They let you land softer than the twenty-eight footers, but were harder to control in higher winds. Our chute of choice was the 28'.
