Low bulk reserves

Recommended Posts

Had some info given there that Aerodyne are working on a low volume reserve.

Speeds do pack small too. Got a Speed 135 in a container that had an R-Max 138. The Speed is much softer than the R-Max was.
Sky Switches - Affordable stills camera tongue switches and conversion adaptors, supporting various brands of camera (Canon, Sony, Nikon, Panasonic).

It is supposedly lower bulk than colored canopies. The theory is that the darker colors are bulkier than lighter ones. I don't think anyone has been able to accurately measure out how much more bulky colored fabrics are but I think the general consensus is that it does pack marginally smaller... Marginally.

Whether dye makes a difference to pack volume or not, it's worth remembering that people still typically associate white with reserve canopies - so it's easier for someone to identify you after a cutaway.
