Bird-Man Tracking Pantz Can't Post

Check this out!

What's cool is that they have a BASE and skydiving version.

Might have to get me a BASE pair! Cool

interesting. maybe that will give the big boys the edge they need to slow down. i've always thought that it is better to fly your body instead of your jumpsuit. i don't think the freeflying version will all around be that great a thing. guess we'll wait and see. should be a great thing for base though. i noticed they have yellow with red stripes for a stock color pattern.

I understood that while the suit was approprate for freeflying, it's biggest benefit came from tracking. From the short read on blincmagazine.com, I understood it wouldn't help your sit, but would help your track after the sit.

Anyone else get this impresion? Anyone actually seen them?

Yeah, I saw a pair about a month ago. I thought they were normal FF pants till I saw the vents and then saw the Track Pantz logo on them.

I think that there have been several "demo" versions out there. The folks that have them are not just freeflyers or base jumpers. AFF instructors and tandem masters have had them as well. The pantz are supposed to give you more leg power in whatever attitude you fly in (butt up, butt down, belly flop, etc) and ALL the feedback from the people using them in Europe and some here has been nothing but good. I'm looking forward to getting a pair for myself as soon as I can afford a pair. :)
