Never jumped it, but did get to take a pretty good look at it.

Reserve container is pretty much a Wings reserve container.

Not a huge fan of the secondary handle being basically a hackey with a RSL lanyard on it.

Handles are in the same place as a SIGMA. Student harness is built very similar to one too.

Don't like the bungee 'staging' loop on the main. I think it's going to be too easily broken and essentially ignored.

Couple of nifty leg pads that are somewhat adjustable, but IMO not really an improvement over anything out there.

Thanks! I just watched the video from the PIA. Has some electronic gadgets as well, like the tracking system for a cutaway main. And a jump tracking implant accessible by smart phone.

Those weren't part of the system when I looked at it. The cutaway tracker sounds nifty but I don't know that the jump counter system would make much difference. I would've gone with a different system that was globally accessible around the DZ and some sort of integration with the manifest system.
