The M-Flex fits comfortably and is easy to pack. 0 out of 5 stars

Review by: Keith Laub, 2000-02-23


My history in the US Army Airborne was quite extensive, whereas my skydiving was minimal with only 125 jumps. After twelve years of being out of the sport, I jumped back in relying on my military training as a frame of reference.

I researched every container manufacturer in-depth. Being 6'6" 265 pounds, I was having some difficulty with some of the manufacturers even replying to my questions. I just about had it narrowed down to a Racer first and then a Vector.

Linda Marie at the GearStore in Elsinore suggested getting some info from Reflex also and forwarded my email to Mick who in turn personally responded. I guess my biggest hurdle was the change from Type 13 harness material over the years to Type 7. Mick explained that his gear had been TSO'd at 300 pounds. Well, with Mick's year end sale and his personal attention, I bought the M-flex (military Reflex).

We had to send it back for a retrofit (I had screwed up the measurements) and Mick took care of it personally. The M-Flex fits comfortably and is easy to pack. And personally, the extra knowledge in knowing that there is a catapault system on there gives me a little added confidence level.
