? About equipment
I am new to the sport of skydiving, in fact I'm still a student, but I love the air!! I wanted to know if anyone has some good advice as to where I could get info. on equipment, how to check, what to look for when buying or flying, packing, etc. Thanks for the help & as they say...Blue Skies!!
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.
