Love it! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: ChrisThelin, 2014-08-07


After jumping Saber 2īs (170), Pilot (188) and Spectre (170) I bought a Hurricane 170 (Brand new 2013) and it is just worlds apart. The canopy is faster in turns, longer in flares and so far, all openings have been silky smooth (even after some really shitting packjobs from me).
Iīve hade one linetwist which gave the canopy a strong dive, that is something I didnīt experience with the Saber 2 (however the Saber had line-twists every other jump it felt like ;) my guess the dive is due to the properties of a elliptic parachute.
Now after 150 jumps with the Hurricane my plan is to buy another Hurricane (135) when the time comes to downsize.

I highly recommend this chute and Erik over at Vertical Sports in South Africa who help me with the order (and some measurements I didnīt do correct for the rig ;)


I love it...but... 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: fitzlan, 2012-03-16


I've bought my Hurricane 170 second hand. It had about 60 jumps on it before mine, and i've put around 40 jumps on it so far. I love the way it flies, the way it turns so fast for a 170. Openings are pretty smooth, sliders tends to stay up, by a little pull on the back-risers gets him down. The flares are pretty awesome, not even tried front-risers landings yet. My only problem so far is that it almost always swerve to the right as it starts to fly. It does a 90-180 turn and then stopsto turn and flies straight. Now i compensate as soon as it opens to minimize the turning on opening and it goes alright. If anybody can help me with that or give me hints...it would be appreciated.


What a canopy 5 out of 5 stars

I made 10 jumps with my hurricane 170, about 1.5 wload, and just happy with it...it opens soft (after Merit, with big slider, and roling tail, this canopy is perfect) it flies quiet fast, it is a high perf canopy...it lands in no wind days aswell than wind days, if you wanna flight conservatly, you can, if you wanna make a rodeo you can.

i cutawayed once, last jump, because risers i had were bad, unbreaked toggle, and line twists, and 2 time hade same problem with good opening,

dive is great, and it flight better than stilleto...it lands better, and you can have a lot of fun....in track suit it goes good, body position, normal body position and it opens in axis...you can play with your harnes during opening sequence, it takes aproximatly 800 feets and make once again great openings, good glide ratio, and really easy to pack.

the new zp materials used also by pd...

hma 500 lines , really happy with this canopy....
