Re: [davelepka] Have hooded sweatshirts ever caused a malfunction or incident?
I had an incident directly caused by a hooded sweatshirt once!
I loaned mine to an EXTREME hottie one chilly night at the DZ...her boyfriend showed up to return it the next day sporting rather aggressively unpleasant disposition. A wuffo unfamilar with Skydiving protocal regarding such matters, I offered to hammer it out for him.
She told me over a romantic dinner the following weekend that her EX-boyfriend was 'wound too tight' and that the obvious malfunction caused her to initiate a cut-way procedure!
I conscientiously did a complete & thorough inspection of her hardware and performed several system checks... in the interest of safety ONLY of course.
So I do indeed concur ~ Use of hoodies does have the potential of creating unforeseen situations in the skydiving enviroment that require quick & decisive action!!
