Great for beginners or experienced jumpers.

This video presented some great perspectives on safety issues from very experienced jumpers. The malfunction video clips were a great way to help prepare myself for the real thing (hopefully). Being able to see live mals, with commentary was a lot more informative than the pictures I saw in my FJC.

I use it extensively for my student training with regards to Malfunctions lesson. Students find it a very good visual guide to what they might expect to see over their heads. A good refresher aid for those who have been out of the sport for a long time. No matter how good you are, there will always be something to learn...
Worth owning, could save your life

This is a very good video reviewing safety and emergency procedures. Its something I watch again and again, especially if I have not jumped recently. Its only fault is that it bogs down and gets too slow in certain segments, but you can always fast fwd. I know of no competing video. This is worth owning just for the review of what to do (and not do) with two canopies out. Students will greatly benefit from this video, but so will experienced jumpers.

im pretty up on my emergency procedures. i had the good fortune of working full time on the dz from the middle of AFP and learning a lot. Safety was always emphasized to me.
i was sick one saturday and watched breakaway and several times i rewinded and rewatched parts of it. 2 days later i woke up and manifested. 6 minute call. okay, i could make that. on the plane i decided to do a handle touch solo skydive. breakaway had reminded me of my emergency procedures and needing to review them during skydives regularly, even doing entire skyives related to them.
2 loads later a friend and i manifest for a 2 way belly dive to review his skydive u manuvers. at breakoff (i was pulling high) he tracked next to me. watched as i had a total. 2 attempts and i dumped my reserve.
Breakaway reminded me a lot of what i had forgotten, and reviewed stuff that got pushed back in my brain a bit.
i thought it was a good video, broken down into catagories that were easy to understand.
it may be a little old, but it's definitally worth the money
