Good freaking catch, I ordered the french hardware! Ofcourse they JUST closed. Guess I'll have to call them tomorrow... (even though its shipping today) Pirate

Mine is getting shipped out today!

I didn't know that that come with self tightening lag strap adapters! How did you ask for it (it is not an option on the order form)?

I will, once I assemble and pack it. (Motivation for me to get my ass in gear and get my riggers ticket.)

You can see it up the thread a little.

BTW: I ended up getting the fancy new hardware because they were out of french hardware and *upgraded* me for free. I'll see how I like it. I hear good things about it.

I jumped my first rig yesterday. High altitude hop and pop. :) Most comfortable thing I've ever worn, fits me like a glove. I love my V3. I love this sport, everyone I've met doing this and everything it's helped me become.

And it looks even better on the Elsinore couches lol

Well I also got my new V3 but haven't had a chance to jump it yet. It fits good but feels just a bit tight on the shoulders, like there is a little too much pressure on them.

The rig feels more comfy in a box position on my bed tho Tongue

Just wondering if you guys felt like your V3s kinda got broke in and loosened up with a few jumps on them.

Thanks :)

Re: [OG-Tahiti] Post your Micron [In reply to] Can't Post

i got a V306 that feels a bit like a brick, it's VERY tightly packed i think with the chutes i have.. not uncomfortable at all, but it's not like it's softly snuggling against my back..

i love my micron! Smile

Does it use magnets to close it or tabs??

Re: [Shoot] Post your Micron [In reply to] Can't Post

It uses two locking stows/rubber bands and then the lines are stowed in a side pouch that closes with tabs. They have a different material at the "mouth" of the pouch that pays the lines on opening, most likely helps with durability.

Mine felt a bit tight across the yoke as well when I first bought it. It will loosen up and break in as you jump it. I've got about 100 jumps on mine now, but I think the last 50 or so have felt the same once it loosened up. Enjoy!
