"long" WS containers - who makes them?

Recommended Posts

(edited)

You can order the long rig option on Aerodyne containers sized I1 - I4. Also, the only WS specific container I've seen is Javalin's new Aurora. All other containers I've seen are just normal containers and the WS mod option just means they dont sew up the sides of the main packing tray and give you a longer bridle. That's it.

Mirage just announced 4 days ago via their instagram two new containers, the M3 Long and the M4 Long. I'm assuming they are just longer versions of their normal M3 and M4, but no other details can be found, not even on their website.

Supposedly, UPT also has a long option for the Vectors.  I had heard rumors about it  and I asked some UPT people about it at their booth  in march and they confirmed it but didn't have one with them at the time.  I haven't seen it on their site though. 

The aerodyne long option looks nice and appears to be used by most Aerodyne wingsuit team members.  The Aurora is probably the most specific in terms of aerodynamic design if you are into PPC.

A wingsuit friend ordered a long UPT rig. When he got it rig did not fit not even close, and build quality ( I saw it) was, to say it mildly, not what was expected. It looked horrendously bad actually. It was returned and money was refunded. He then ordered the Sunpath Aurora which he recently got, and he is happy with that.

VSE also has two form factors for the Infinity, SN (short + narrow) which sits higher and standard which is longer and flatter. Freefliers tend to prefer the SN models, wingsuiters and really tall people gravitate toward the standard.

With that said, I think every manufacturer now has some variation on this concept now.

Here is one I spotted in the wild yesterday.

I was told this is a 'Long long Vector', longer than the normal 'long' version. Brand new, 18 inches long apparently. However I suspect the jumper got this due to lanky body shape rather than for WS.

Looks pretty good to me at first glance.
