harness size Can't Post

Hi!

I want to skydive a base canopy and the only person I know who has a container big enough to fit it is like 6'2 and I<m 5'9...I would only hop and pop it...Can it be dangerous? The only thing I can think of is finding the handles in case of EPs...

thanks!

What about the student rigs at the DZ? Those are generally sized for large canopies and average sized people.

Make sure your leg straps are real snug as the chest strap will be around neck high, have fun!

If his rig doesnt fit, you should just try to BASE jump a skydiving canopy. Either way produces the same result

Provided that you are a regular jumper there, your skills match up with whatever it is you're trying to do, and you're willing to pay for the rig rental and for someone to do the swap, I'd say there's a good chance it would happen.
