Is not that Wing's copy ? Looks the same. But Wings is $160 cheaper...

I think this gear (Vortex, Hurricane, Decelerator, etc) is made in South Africa. I'm assuming that the Canadian company is an agent for the South African manufacturers, unless they're making it under license.

I've seen some of this gear being jumped in the UK, and it seems good quality.

if you are going to post advertisements (without paying Sangiro to do so) at least disclose your relationship with the vendor

also - you aren't buying wings and sewing a new label on are you?

Ur right Geoff,

they are south african. When I lived in Alberta, Canada, there were load of Vortex'x and their canaopies around.

I dont think that its a Wings copy since that container was around before I heard of Wings... Now if you ask if its a Javelin copy, then its another story...

Cool front page on the website.... but it took forever to finish loading on my slowpoke connection. A "skip intro" button would be a really good thing to add... A bit more info about the container would be nice... i.e where it's made, TSO it is manufactured under, etc... I didn't see any links for pricing, colors, company info, etc... And you might want to post this in the classified section, not the forums; this area is for questions and discussions, not blatant ads (otherwise known as spam).

direct quote from website -
" I know for a fact that the gear is best and I have had Javelin and other
manufacturer's gear, but at the end of the day the gear that I will go for is
Vortex 2 system not because I am a dealer, because I bought a Vortex
before I became a dealer. "

Well! Never mind! You just sold me! How fast can I have one?

pull and flare,

reno120,

If you have anything informative about these containers to share with the folks in these forums, by all means go ahead. Reviews, history, anything....

...but please refrain from using this forum for advertising and marketing purposes. I will delete (Alan - feel free to do so) any future post to this affect.

Safe swoops

Hi all,
Thanks to you regulars and Sangiro who posted reminders that this is a forum for gear discussion and not for advertisements. I am locking the thread and any real information/discussion can be started in a new thread.
