    Gath Hat

    I purchased my first Gath two years ago and am very pleased with its performance. If you are looking for a helmet that is not over-built, is lightweight and comfortable, go with a Gath. I wear a helmet to avoid bumps from the plane, air to air contact during wingsuit flocking, and falling while landing and my Gedi and RV do a great job. I use my Gath not only for skydiving, but for BASE jumping and speedflying as well. Not to mention GoPro cameras strap onto the top perfectly.

    canopy size

    I am in a similiar position... Just sold my flik 293 and am in the market for a new canopy. My other rig has an ace 280 that I am very happy with but usually use for slider up jumps. I'm looking at either a BJ 280 or 310, both with the zp option. The pro's of the 280 are having two same sized canpies and having more confidence is how fast it will deploy on ultra low free falls, the cons are that I am at the high range of wing loading. The pro's for the 310 are that I can fly it super slow and land in tight landing areas with less forward penetration, the cons are that is it a bulkier, heavier canopy that will take a few extra feet to deploy, also I would feel silly jumping a 310 w/ a wingsuit. I hav't even checked to see what the pack volume compares between the two of them and a flik 293. That will help make up my mind since it will have to fit in my old container. I am interested in peoples opinoins also.....
