    Semi-stowless on Sabre II

    I switched to a semi stowless bag (Wings) with a sabre 2 and I did notice a slight lessening of the off heading openings. Soft openings and no line twists became the norm though,

    Questions on buying a helmet

    Why don't you try a ProTec helmet. Reasonably priced and great protection.

    Noob questions

    You have a way to go until you're ready to be concerned about gear. Concentrate on getting started first and then start saving for gear.

    Rookie having a hard time

    Have you went to one of your instructors for advice? That might be a good place to start.

    Weekend bigways

    There were 15 jumps in the 45-50+ range shooting for 2 points. We built the first point consistently, but never got the second. Good time though, great friends.

    Protec and audibles

    I don't think that the half shell Protec will accept an audible. Any audible has to be located by you ear as they're not very loud to start with. You can fit an audible in the standard Protec, inside the ear hole. Be sure to face the sounding hole toward your ear.
