Them parachutes is all full of holes! I was taught that if you can see the sky through your canopy, you cut it away. Wink

This is a thread from nearly a year back, but I'm wondering Andrew, what kind of gear the canopies were in.

Looks like modern piggyback rigs with 3 rings? Big student gear? But even with a bag not a sleeve, a ParaCommander is a lot bigger than a Manta or even a typical ParaFoil. So what did you guys find that would fit?

Peter, the rigs I use are RI Manta-main-sized Telesis's, mains packed in slags ; these rigs give a nice fit.
