The "Odyssey" will touch you where no other rig can with its new "cut-in" backpad (the lateral straps exit the backpad closer to the center of the main container, instead of at the corners). This feature of the Javelin "Odyssey" allows for the lateral strap to contour around the lower back, keeping the container snug against the jumper. The jumper and Javelin "Odyssey" move as one. High-speed free flyer, competitive formation skydiver, or weekend warrior, the Javelin "Odyssey" stays snugly in place.

Bad Customer Service?!? 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Gerrytheczech, 2009-01-11

I am bemused by the reports on here of bad customer service from this company. I bought my rig 4 years ago and have not had a single problem with it, or the customer service that I received.

When I my wife completed her AFF course just over 3 years ago, I had no hesitation in recommending an Odyssey for her. We travelled to Z-Hills to pick it up and get a few jumps in, and although my wife found the system very comfortable, she found the chest strap was sitting very high when she was under canopy and was obstructing her ability to look downwards.

Sunpath had a look and immediately suggested that we leave the rig behind so they could sort the problem out. They worked out that the wrong sized yolk had been fitted, and they sorted the problem out by remeasuring my wife and eventually remaking the rig (at no extra cost). When the 2nd rig finally arrived, the problem (although less pronounced) had not been completely solved, and the experts at Sunpath worked out that they did not have an ideal pattern for my wife's sizing (she has a "cuddly" figure). Solution: a complete re-design of their templates and another new rig, again at no extra cost. Result: perfectly fitting rig and complete satisfaction. Poor customer service? I DON'T THINK SO.


NOT FREEFLY FRIENDLY 2 out of 5 stars

Review by: surfbum5412, 2008-09-04

If you freefly, DO NOT consider a Javelin Odyssey. These are good durable rigs, but in my opinion, they are more suited for RW flyers (freefly transitios allow air to get under main flap and flip it open). On every jump, the main flap comes open, exposing my bridle and because of that, I don't feel safe jumping a Javelin Odyssey.

My next rig will be a Mirage, Micron, or ICON; simply because they are more freefly riendly due to their main flap design.

One of the market leaders, yet not on customer service 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: Dopey, 2008-09-03

This is my second Odyssey. First one, not a single problem, great fit and very durable. Second one, was basically brand new, hardly any jumps on it. Felt once more so extremely comfortable with all options, yet came with a pull-out system. Am now waiting (my rigger as well) for more than 2 months to switch over to a throw-out system, yet Sunpath has not been able to process this order (via my rigger) in that period. Needs definitely improvement in that field.

Worth your money but.....
