I like the one 3/4s in where the guy re-packs his reserve while under canopy! Cool

Really? We teach main/reserve entanglement reel in least inflated canopy, though I have to say this is the first video I have ever seen of it actually done.

That kind of skydiving/gear boggles my mind. I am so glad for how things work these days.

Yup...notice several of the mains aren't using a D-bag, my 252 didn't have one, but never opened THAT badly.

Well, sometimes you just don't have time at the boogie to wait.

These remind me of the Russian guy I met that showed me how to pack. He landed, threw the canopy in a pile and stuffed it in the bag. I asked him: does that work? He said: I not own it!

If Style makes canopies open like that, it's no wonder that nobody does Style anymore.

Monotony, followed by sheer terror? Tongue
