No it doesn't.

It looks like a flattie saw a swooper with their risers out and thought it would be a good idea for freefall.

Weird picture.

Why would a "swooper" wear booties? And what's with the reserve handle being all flipped out there??? Unsure

No it doesn't.

It looks like an Icon that has too much bulk in the ears, which can cause the riser covers to not want to stay closed.

They wouldn't. Hence why I said a flattie.

I can't even see the reserve handle?

Like I said, it's a strange picture. The main risers are so far out and underneath the open riser flaps that they almost look purposely put there.

Poor choices? Poor container design? I dunno.

That's not the reserve handle on the left of the pic, that's the unstowed brake line excess.

The riser covers haven't stayed closed, so both risers have moved off the shoulders and are now underneath the riser covers.

It's more like a Quest from Atmogear, but you are right about the bulk in the ears Smile

Well, I can see the end of the cutaway cable housing on the jumper's left side. There is no cutaway cable and the white loop looks to be a long way from the eyelet, and not through it. I'd like to crop the image, but I can't on my device. But, you can zoom in and view the assembly.

Maybe this is a leaked picture of the new Icon that is suppose to come out this summer Tongue

Tracking away after someone has mistakenly pulled his cutaway handle. Moved his main risers out to insure a clean deployment of the reserve without cutting away his main and possibly losing it.

Explains the "get outta my way stare."

This is excess brake line?

I believe it is, yes. To me, the shape doesn't look quite right for a reserve handle.

The yellow cutaway cables are still in place.
It's not chopped.

In that picture, you can see the soft loop is still up under tension.
You can see the yellow cable on the other side.

I am not seeing the same thing. I see the grommet, but it seems a long way from the soft loop, and I can't see a yellow cable near the grommet.
