DESCRIPTION OF PHOTOS BELOW

 

The top (2) photos show a quick release way to thread your chest strap. The next three photos show the difference in thickness between the 15 inch wide Mini Softie.

 

The next (3) photos show a 15 inch Mini which is about 2 1/2 inches thick and the 16 inch is about 2 inches thick, when they are properly packed. The top of the container is where the bulk of the lines are normally stowed. This is the part directly behind your shoulder blades, but it also can be packed at the bottom of the container, for lumbar support. When it is packed with the bulk at the top the of the container, the bottom of the container can be easily squeezed to about 1 inch thick. Vice versa, if the bulk is packed at the bottom of the container, for lumbar support. Packing the bulk at the bottom will move your bottom/butt about 2 inches forward, on the seat.

 

The next (2) pictures shows the 1 inch removable chest strap that comes with each "A" Aerobatic harness that I sell.

 

The next picure shows the four colors that the removable sheepskin pads come in. The dye lots can vary a bit. (Tan, Silver, Grey & Black.

 

The next (2) photos show the Quick Ejector snap on the left(extra option) and B-12 snap option,on the right, that is normally on each parachute unless you upgrade to the quick ejector snaps.

 

The last photo shows what I call a "Camels Hump". This is a way to temporarily shorten the vertical distance from the shoulder to the waist for someone of smaller stature. It then can be easily shortened and lenghtened back to the way it was.
