The 26' Mid-Lite is the finest reserve canopy available! It is a highly reliable 24 gore canopy. It is tested and approved to FAA TSO C23c Category B.
The canopy has been tested to withstand a 5000lb shock load, which means it is built to withstand the rigors of an emergency bail-out. In production since 1987 the Mid-Lite has proven time and time again that it is the most rugged and reliable reserve you can own!
