Free stowing lines? Can't Post

Hi,

My CRW canopy doesn't have a tail pocket so I was thinking of ditching the DBag and just free stowing the lines.

From what I can gather you just feed them into the container in the shape of a figure 8.

Apart from this are there any tricks & tips?

Thanks & regards,
Andy

You can get an aftermarket tail pocket sewn on easy - just off the end of the tail so no canopy changes needed and just plop rubber bands on it..

It took my rigger 5 minutes to make one on one of my rigs..

Do not do this if you have stiffeners in your container flaps or snag points. Frown

However, I had a friend who jumped an old SST and Unit and had good results figure-eighting his lines in the pack tray and rubber banding his slider up.
Cliff!
Looked cool unpacking, too...
