So true.

Yesterday I saw a jumper in Florida land under a reserve canopy because his main handle was completely stuffed into his BOC pouch. He admitted that he didn't check his gear before exit.

Wow. Checking the handle when I first put the rig on (among other times) is so ingrained that I even do it when I put a backpack on.
The "check of threes" is a very, very strong habit for me.

Same here, wear a backpack to work and find myself checking for the handle rather often to the point where ive been asked wtf im doing. also i can no longer wear said backpack without the chest strap closed....
