  1. I've been happy with my Pelican 1620. It'll fit a rig (started with a V3 350) & G3 without much of an issue, if you don't have a super big rig you can probably get a jumpsuit/odds & ends in as well. See if there's a dealer around your area, you can bring your stuff and try cramming it in cases of various sizes to see which one fits best. Works pretty well for traveling too, though I'll carry on my rig & use the space for my usual luggage. One caveat is that the case weighs ~22 lb empty, so that can take a good ding out of your packing.
  2. Given that premise I don't disagree but that's not the pitch. It's a towed system. Granted it's not unlike a glider, but you (hopefully) can't fall off a glider at low altitude and die.
  3. Looks like it would be fun, though given my inability to stand up on a wakeboard I probably wouldn't give it a shot because I'm a fan of not dying. Definitely understating it. I'd be curious to see how, if at all, this clears the FAA.
  4. Exit weight. Max for a T-10 is 360, not 300. Good luck telling people to carry less weight.
  5. You're going to be a target with broken ankles too.
  6. If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's been floating around for motorcycle helmets for a while. Hard to pin down a supplier for them that isn't some bulk thing from China, I got a couple off of ebay (just an example, this is not the seller I used) to play around with.
  7. I mounted my hard case on one of the wrist sweat bands from the PD shop, works fine.
  8. Pretty cool looking helmet. The buckle looks like the one I was thinking about modding for a G3.
  9. As much as I love SDAZ and Sebastian, right now it's pretty balls hot in Arizona/Florida so I'd probably go with somewhere in New England (SNE, Cross Keys, The Ranch, etc.) or Chicago.
  10. Well he does need to stay toned enough for his competition pants.
  11. I've had good luck just mounting the hard case onto a sweatband.
  12. Probably because the belly guys are folks whose shit don't stink and want to s-turn and oscillate themselves around with toggles for the entire pattern and the freefliers just want to race to hook themselves into the ground.
  13. Solo hop & pop. That way you can reflect on all the knowledge you're about to gain as you hit 100 jumps and know everything about skydiving.
