How difficult is it to pack a triathlon with 150 jumps on it considering all the scary stories
regarding ZP packing. Thanks.

Of all the ZP fabrics Triathlon's are one of the easier to pack. I just pro-pack, don't roll the nose and just roll the tail enough to control the pack and it opens nice and soft, and on heading most of the time. Its a great canopy, it flies fast enough to penetrate the wind, and yet is forgiving enough to allow for mistakes. I really love mine.

The ZP Fabric used to build Triathlons is different from the ZP by PD or Icarus. Its not as slippery feeling and makes it quite easy to pack. I had very few problems learning how to pack with mine. If you goto the Aerodyne website, they go into more detail about the material and why it packs easier

I wouldn't roll the nose - I only have put < 10 jumps on a Triathalon but remember thinking the snivel was long even without the nose rolled.

my 2 cents
