cygnusbase replied to autoset's topic in BASE JumpingI have a few different set-ups(including this one for walls) but I am not sure that the chest protection is the most key for me. I also have never felt a hard opening where my Ribs took any of the blame because I am not even sure they see alot of the opening shock as I swing into the seat. In actuality my neck seems to be the most vulnerable and I have decided that even impedance of a brace or anything would actually interupt the natural flow of the momentum so I gladly accept the whiplash. Not sure I see the need on a skydive. One may also find that the shoulder padding restricts immediate riser access without some discomfort.
