What if you cannot see your canopy? Loose harness restricts moving head in Safety and Training October 15, 2015 AtrusBatleth I'm not sure I understand how this is not safe. I thought the chest strap ensures the pack stays on while you pitch to a legs-down position: mission accomplished. You should be talking to instructors/riggers about these things and not us just an FYI. The chest strap is to hold the shoulder straps together during deployment so that you don't fall out of your harness forward on deployment. However if yours is coming up that high, whats to say on a hard opening your chest strap doesn't come up super fast and hit you up under your chin causing you to bite through your tongue? or even worse... The point is for the gear to be as safe as possible it needs to fit properly, I know you are using student gear, but you should really seek properly fitting gear. Have you talked to the DZ about this?
