I am soooooo happy to be using Vector student gear.

We have 2 DZ's nearby that had to take or ship gear for inspection.

Is the Vector Student Harness AMLW comparable the Sigma Tandem Instructor Harnes in construction and design?

Added: I am not dismissing your input, but the reaction you seem to be exhibiting is that of run in circles scream and shout. For example I have not seen or heard of a report that defines what the mode of death was in this incident.

Acording to the limited printed information avaliable:
"During a recent incident involving a very hard opening of a main canopy the left side of a
Javelin Student, Adjustable Main Lift Web separated."

This in no way has confirmed or denied that this was the cause of death.

I believe it has been established that the person landed with the equipment. Did they suffer injuries from said opening that would have proved fatal no matter what system they were wearing? Did they land in a turn and suffer fatal injuries?

The point is we don't know everything, and we might not ever. Telling people who are using an AMLW Javelin that they are endangering lives is foolhardy. Telling them about a possible problem and the steps to take ensure a reasonable level of safety is not.

Nylon webbing attached to the parachute equipment broke, likely causing a chest strap to break Morgan's neck, said Fred Morelli Jr., attorney for Skydive Chicago. LaSalle County Coroner Jody Bernard has yet to rule on Morgan's cause of death, saying an autopsy has not been completed.

Morelli said Morgan was using the same equipment that investigators believe failed in a similar incident last July near Miami. In that accident, a 45-year-old parachuter was killed when his neck broke after his harness apparently failed, according an Associated Press story at the time.

Wow. That's one silly lawyer IMO.
