Great! Keep testing if hoodies can cause any issues. I look forward to you results!

How many jumps, over how many years by how many individual jumpers does it take to complete the 'testing'? At what point can we sign them off as 'good to go'?
5 years? 10? 15?
10,000 jumps, 20,000 jumps, 50,000 jumps?
1000 jumpers? 2000 jumpers? 3000 jumpers?

I would suggest that we've reached (or exceeded) the all of those numbers without incident.

Here's a fun thought - how many test jumps do you think they put on the Skyhook system before they released it? More or less than the total number of trouble-free jumps with hoodies? That's a freaking HOOK in your reserve container, no less.
