    Vintage jumpsuits

    Do you mean like the old Pioneers etc? I have a custom suit built by Tom Clausen in about 1978 or so. I am 6-3, about 195- still fits.

    Dusting off your rig

    Not sure if modern gear is susceptible to this issue, (and I'm pretty sure no one uses capewells any more...)- But before a first- of-the-year jump, I once found some pea gravel and other 'debris' in and around my ripcord housings and capewells. Not sure how it 'migrated' in there- didn't land in the peas often- but it for sure could have caused a hard/no pull on main and/or reserve. Started "dusting off" my gear, paying MUCH closer attention to my housings, and unobstructed movement of the ripcord(s) in them.
