gear etc Can't Post

Hey all,
I am a level 3 AFF student and have a couple of questions for future reference. After I graduate, I plan to purchase, in the following order:
1. Slipstream 2 jumpsuit
2. Altimeter (probably an Altimaster 3)
3. Helmet (probably an oxygn A-3)

Anybody have input on this? I am mainly interested in comments on the A-3 helmet. Who has one? Pros? Cons? I'd appreciate any info at all. After I get my A license, I'll be back on asking about rigs etc but this is all I need to worry about for the moment. I've also posted in a couple of other forums to get info
Thanks for reading

I went with a Bonehead Havok. due to people telling me that evey couple of jumps the sheild will just fly up on the A3. It is impossible for that to happen on the havok due to the way it closes.
I have an Alti-3 and love it. got one of the newer ones where you can change out your own glass too. makes it really nice.

Because I fly, I envy no man on earth
