Vortex II container. Can't Post

I ordered a Vortex II container, and I was wondering how many of you have this container? What do you think of it?

I'm very curious why you ordered it first and THEN asked for an opinion on it?

Buying a piece of equipment, doesn't mean that you can't seek opinions of others who bought the same equipment! My question was directed to the people who currently own a Vortex II. I forgot to mention that my new container has not been delivered yet. ( just a few more days to wait Cool)

I think he means why didnt you go to the trouble of getting opinions on it before you shelled out money on it?

my teammate owns one and is very satisfied with it... especiallywith the look of the rasta colors he pun on it WinkCool
i never jumped it though, in my opinion, it is too long on the back... i prefere shorter rigs, like atoms or vectors...

As you may already know, the Vortex II is manufactured by Parachute Systems, formerly Chute Shop.
Their website is http://www.parachutesystems.co.za or http://www.vortexii.com.
Both link to the same page.

Thanks!Wink

I'll take a closer look at this when i get my Vortex II, but I'm pretty sure that if this issue has been brought to their attention, they already took care of the problem.

Re: [ypelchat] Vortex II container. [In reply to] Can't Post

only put 5 or so jumps on mine but from everything ive read and the limited experience of mine, I'm well happy with it. Seems like a great rig at a great price. If there was one complaint it would be that my rig sits on the top of my bum a little bit, but I bought it second hand so just have to put up with that for the time being, no biggie really.
