    What's the word for us from CES?

    Everything Sony has announced is OIS (from my reading of the press releases). Panasonic has a cam with EIS. Samsung's press release doesn't mention either way. Stills wise, haven't really paid attention.

    Nitro Rigging WS

    Really, since when? Because Robi made no mention of it a couple weeks ago... PF's lead time last I heard was around 12 weeks, with the V4 having a significantly larger lead. As for Nitro Rigging, I jump at Deland and have seen a couple of his suits on the ground. Haven't been in the air with another person wearing one. What would you like to know (if I can answer)?

    Reserves and manufacturers' MSW - & reserve selector

    The number you're looking at, 176 pounds, is the max they feel an advanced skydiver should weigh and be able to safely pilot the thing. The number on the far right, 220 pounds, is the maximum weight that should be suspended under it. I'm hazarding to guess that is what the reserve was TSO'ed at and if so, that means (in the US, no clue about UK's rules) it would be illegal to use if you weighed more than that.

    GQ Security Safety-Chute

    Packed one once. The spring loaded loop rectractor thingie (technical term) was annoying to say the least.
