Re: [rss_v] What do you wear if not a jumpsuit?

After 5 years of freeflying, still haven't gotten myself a decent freefly suit... been meaning to do so but I have something sorta like ocpd, couldn't decide on a brand...

Anyway, during summertime I simply wear shorts and tuck my shirt in and tighten the belt as much as I can... otherwise the shirt will come up... rarely does anyway...

During cooler time of year I simply wear jeans with tight rolls...

It's very important to make sure that pants are tight rolled, especially when doing upright freeflying, otherwise the pants will balloon up and slow you down...

Going off a bit here but still meaningful... I had a RW suit that unzipped all the way when I was doing a headdown dive... No biggie except when the time came to deploy... I couldn't reach the hacky because the loose fold of suit was blocking the access... I had to reach out and around the flapping piece of fabric for an uneventful deployment.
