You can get lots of information here. This site has reviews on many pieces of equipment. You can also ask for help in the gear forum. Any canopies or containers you buy should be inspected by a rigger that you trust for safety.

[shameless self-promotion]Start with the article on the front page of this site - "Some tips on buying your first rig". [/shameless self-promotion] Then check out the Gear section. Then go to the links and visit the manufacturers and gear dealers websites. You can post your questions in the gear forum, or even go directly to a dealer or the manufacturer.

Good luck!

Nothin' wrong with a little self-promotion when you do good work. Great job on the article.
