Re: [JohnMitchell] Any additional techniques for preventing line twist?

I love my UPT Vector "semi-stowless" bag. My openings have been fantastic since I switched to this bag. One linetwist in the past several years, and that was a packer that I had not used before.

If the parachute is held in the bag until full line extension, the opening is more likely to be a good one. The rest of the stowes do not seem to matter much. They provide a bit of organization, and that's it.

As far as double-stowing the closing stows with long rubber bands, it may prevent premature bag-dump, but you will go through rubber bands faster than single stowing the small rubber bands. Double-stowing beefy tube stows or similar on the closing bites, well that is called a significant potential for a bag lock.

Great thread!
