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 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 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.
