Misrouted Cheststrap – How to survive?

Recommended Posts

You can actually survive without any actions. I jumped with a person where she did realize the open chest strap only after opening. The harness was very tight so the container did not move an inch.

I do not recommend that, but in certain circumstances you might get away with it. As mentioned earlier always check yourself and your jump buddies.

To fully avoid this problem I got a 2" extra long chest strap (4 ft maybe) that is always routed.
Just pass the chest strap over your head when putting the rig on and as long as you remember to tighten it (easy to remember when it is that long, flapping around...) you are good to go.
