    stash bag

    Where do I buy a stash bag that: -is comfortable over my shoulders -is waterproof -has a waist band -is big enough for my rig and some other things like protective gear and food
  2. On all pilotchutes I have seen, tapes are on the outside. Is it always like this? Is there a reason for not having them on the inside?
  3. If you have jumped at dropzones with two or more airplanes, how did you plan for the loads with crw-jumpers to make it safe.
  4. I saw a guy that had a metal cutaway handle on his rig. Does anyone on this forum use this? Where did you buy it?
  5. I´m going to add a pinstop closer to the pilot chute to convert a throw out to a pull out (with the pilot chute still packed in the boc). If you would jump with this: How long would you like the lenght from the base of the pilot chute (where you´re going to hold it) to the pin stop to be?
  6. When landing in the snow, I check if the canopy is dry before I pack it. I got a reserve on my back, but I still don't want my main or my threerings to become frozen. "Pauli, along with several other jumpers, had been jumping the day prior and landing into very deep snow. The jumpers shook the dry snow out of the canopies prior to packing, but evidently Pauli didn't remove it all. What's left melts inside the packed rig while it sat in a warm room. The jumpers deposit the rigs into the trunk of an old Saab and drive to Stockholm. The temperatures are well below freezing. On deployment Pauli canopy went to line stretch but is basically a solid block of ice that never inflates."
  7. All dropzones I jump at count people on every load. I think it´s good, especially at big dropzones or big events. If there are too many people in the load for one person to count, each group can report to the person who counts if they landed well or not, to make it easier and faster.

    safety jackets

    I´m looking for some kind of back and chest protection to use for base jumping, maybe something like the Dainese safety jacket, but in my size. Has anyone seen safety jackets or safety wests with size and shape to fit women?
  9. I paid about $2000 for mine. I know of two other dropzones, their prices are between 2000-2500 I think.
  10. I paid a jump-as-much-as-you-want-fee at my home dropzone. After that I didn´t have to pay anything more for the jumps I did there during this year. So once that fee was paid all other dropzones were more expensive.
  11. i´m 22. I don´t think much about age differences when I´m at the dropzone though. I met one of my coolest friends through skydiving and she is 16 years older. I´ve got a lot more in common with her if I compare with most of people I meet in school.
  12. i thought about freefall after cutaway
  13. it depends on how low you pull you reserve, i guess
  14. anyone out there who has competed in 8-way speed? what were the biggest challanges for your team when you started practising together?
