Re: [Whamie] General question on gear stuff

In reply to:
My question is what do ya'll think about buying a used main and reserve but just buying my own harness/container?

I'll let other folks comment specifically on the canopy choices (but i agree about giving the sizing a good, hard think...)...if you have the cash for everything...it certainly doesn't hurt in the comfort compartment.

I can't find the link on the new ChutingStar site...but they had a "new guy buying gear" section of advice (looks like it should be under here but looks like they're "working on the server" or something http://www.chutingstar.com/expert-advice/) and they essentially said what you proposed: custom rig, used nylon.

Once it is back up it walks through the pros and cons of various ways to get gear: all new, mixed, all used etc.
