Stowless tandem d bags? Can't Post

Hey guys,

I wandered into the packing cave the other day and was almost smothered by broken rubber bands, which made me wonder about stowless tandem bags. I love my stowless bag on my sports rig, anyone use them on tandems?

When I asked the packing trolls about it they looked at their broken nails and fingertips and grunted something unintelligible to human ears.

havent seen one yet but if they can design one that works just as well as they do on sport rigs it would be nice.

Seen an awesome video of a guy using one. If you slow the video down to frame by frame you can see the bag being stripped off of the tandem canopy as soon as it lifts from the container. Needless to say it was a hard opening.

Why positively not?

I know of a stowless tandem bag that was used in Hollister a couple of years ago. I do not recall how it worked, but would refuse to jump it myself..

was asked to reinstall the original Dbag on an Atom Tandem, as it had been replaced by a fully stowless dbag.
line dump
bag strip
other types of out of sequence deployment
you name it, they did it

When discussing these things, it is important to at least distinguish full stowless from semi-stowless. One is a much bigger step than the other. (Just saying, not implying anything about any particular design of either.)

Pretty sure it's not in circulation.
