    No specific advice but this is a good read for those buying their first set of gear https://www.dropzone.com/articles/gear/a-guide-to-buying-your-first-skydiving-gear-r628/

  6. Some people like to work for employers that can read and understand rules. Some like to work for companies staffed by rebels. Right under where it says No Advertising comes Robert's post. Robert is a rebel
  7. Interesting. I'd like a better look at these things but there is nothing on their site. In the video, they state that the product is going to be on rigs starting in April and the video was posted before that so I am assuming they missed their target release date. Does anyone know what is happening now with this product?

  9. Not necessarily good advice to just wear street clothes on a skydive. If you are going to do this make sure your shirt can't come loose and blow over your emergency handles. Looking for handles that have been covered up during a malfunction is wasting time when you don't have much to spare. David: Aren't you the guy in another thread that didn't like getting advice from people other than your instructors at the DZ? If that's true, you might reconsider offering advice to others. Just my thoughts... from a guy that started jump mastering in 1980
  10. I did this back in the early 80's. I had a rotator cuff injury that my doc thought would keep me from jumping for a couple of months. I had an SST Racer with a pull out so the change was easy, just add a little velcro and a tab to the left side. I think only missed one weekend of jumping.
  11. I've had someone else's ligaments in both my knees since 2010. Still jumping
