Description
A symbol for a new age in student, harness container evolution. That was our goal while developing the Icon Student. Student training is becoming more diverse, and the demands placed upon student equipment have become greater. At the same time student’s are more concerned with safety and comfort than ever. Of course we had to build a reliable, durable, and comfortable student container, but the Icon Student had to be more. We had to develop new technology in order to address the current and future needs of students and drop zone operators around the world. Our development team had to consider many things that most of us would rather not think about. Possibilities like: unintentional reserve deployments at high speeds, high “g-force” spinning malfunctions of main canopies, harsh student training environments and treatment, among others. Not pleasant thoughts, but when designing a new harness/container system, we had to look at every aspect. We think you will like the result. The Icon Student not only provides you with a comfortable, reliable and, durable container, it also incorporates new technology, not found on any other system in the world.

Icon Student 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: Maddingo, 2017-05-03


The rig can take a student beating and it is very well thought out. You can adjust the harness to a correct size for every jumper. It looks and feels durable.

Other than that I must say that a few issues bothered me a lot. The tuck tabs are to small so they come loose almost on every jump which is quite uncomfortable. The 2nd problem I noticed is the pilot chute design. IF you order it with a plastic ball the material will constantly want to pop out, the ball is sewn too close to the pilot chute. It is not an issue for belly flying but when a student gets a bit more advanced it can be a concern.

Other features seem good and present a reliable rig.
