  1. Thank you all for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate all of the great information!
  2. Hey all! Just to preface, I will be talking to instructors and riggers prior to making any gear purchase decision. I am just hoping to hear from some other people who may have gone through a similar situation and how they went about moving forward. I am currently a college student so I don't have a massive budget. While looking online for used rigs I have run in to one common theme. None of them seem as though they would fit someone my size. I am 6' 3" but only about 150lbs. So my question relating to a new rig would be do I keep searching classifieds and hope that something turns up? Or do I get a custom container (looking at Wings but open to input) and then purchase used canopies. I have heard finding a used AAD is very difficult as well. I currently fly a 200 student canopy and have 45 jumps. Also...I have heard rumors of manufacturer coupons floating around in raffles and such. Is that actually true?? Thank you all for your time and help!
  3. Well that works out well since that is my home DZ! I had no idea they carried them in stock! Thanks for the info!
  4. I know there are a couple places that have the G3 helmet in stock so you don't have to wait 3 weeks. Does anyone have a recommendation on where to purchase? I am not opposed to purchasing a used helmet either. Also, does Cookie make the best helmet bag or is there another one that is superior. Thank you in advance!
  5. That is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out! Take care!
  6. Whoops! I didn't even catch that! Thank you for pointing that out!
  7. I'm sorry if I came across as trying to get someone to do my work for me. I was simply interested in hearing from some experienced wingsuiters to get some additional information. We are not permitted to simply use google as it in and of itself is not a credible source. We are required to use educational databased which did not have quite the piece of information I was looking for. I am a student and am interested in the subject. I have no desire to cheat or take the easy way out of an assignment. I simply thought that this website would have some members that would be willing to help a college student with a school project. Instead of accusing me of cheating why don't you reach out to me and see what I am really asking for. Take care.
  8. I am a student at the University of Wyoming and am writing a paper on wing suiting. I was hoping that someone with wing suit experience could provide me with a quote on specific dangers of wing suiting. I am currently an AFF student so I do not have any experience in the discipline. If you comment I can send you an email with more details and what I need specifically for my paper. Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
  9. Okay thank you! Would you recommend getting a jump suit? The only ones I am really familiar with are the Vertical suits.
  10. I am just getting in to the sport and am looking into get a rig in the coming months. I was wondering when the best time to get a rig is (before or after A license)? Should I get a jumpsuit and helmet first or focus on the rig? Also, I am 6' 4" so I am having trouble finding a used container that would fit me. Should I go all new or maybe a new container with used chutes and AAD? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
