    Loading a PD190

    Depends on the condition of the main (read: how many jumps on it). I jumped a PD190 for my first 150 jumps and it pretty much sucked for the flare Now, I could jump it just fine. Hit the peas everytime and I have enough expierience with crappy F111 canopies to know how to flare it. Tip: Single stroke flare a tad higher than you would on your old canopy. Works for me, your milage may vary. Good luck with it

    low profile lens question

    Shame on me for replying to myself. I need to measure my dbox when I get home tonight again but maybe the kenko .5 would work: http://www.buy.com/prod/kenko-sgw-05-0-5x-wide-angle-conversion-lens/q/loc/111/90104351.html

    PC1000 Deal

    From my limited experience with camera prices, I would jump on that...even if I didn't have a helmet for it...

    Is there anything wrong with having gear thats

    I think you kinda said it yourself. Get a rigger's opinion, should be fine. (I am not a rigger)

    Leather helmet

    They are called frap hats. Check around at retailers but they generally go for ~125 or so, new. Your DZ may have some for purchase too. edited to add: I haven't seen a brand name/manufactor associated with them. They are just simply called "Frap Hats"
