The harness utilizes a light weight fixed-dimension main lift web with individual leg strap design for ease of walking & maximum cockpit movement while saving weight & space. Fully adjustable. Deployment is ripcord actuated with the handle located at the front left side of the harness. Each system is assembled with the popular 26 foot diameter Mid-Lite canopy freshly packed by an FAA licensed parachute rigger. Every system is delivered in a matching carrying bag with the complete service manual, ready for flight.
