One piece tracking suit opinions? Can't Post

With the current selection of 1 piece tracking suits avaliable, can anyone share their likes, dislikes, and experiences. I am planning to order one very soon and would like to hear fromantic those jumping them.

Thanks

What suits are you considering? Cruise+? Sausage? Masai? RBASEG? PF Onesie?

If I absolutely had to have one for this season and was going to order now, I'd probably go with the Sausage because of the fast delivery times, responsive customer service (Mike at Squirrel has been super responsive to everyone I know who's contacted him with issues of any kind) and especially the fact that it's been out for long enough to have some honest field testing from people who aren't affiliated with Squirrel.

But if I lived in Europe, maybe I'd have better luck getting response from PF or SFly, so it might depend on where you are.

You might also consider waiting for more feedback on the PF Onesie. They are only just (like this week for the very first orders) hitting the streets in the USA, and have only been in the wild in Europe for a little while longer, which means there is going to be very little honest feedback yet, since most of the people with them are affiliated with the manufacturer. I've got one on order, and I'm hoping to get it in time to skydive with it and take it to Europe in May, but I'm not willing to BASE jump it without taking it to the DZ first, so I'm not sure they will get it to me in time.

I'm not sure who aside from Antoine is jumping the RBASEG, but his results are extremely impressive.

I know several people with Sausages, and they all have good things to say about build quality and performance.

The Masai was what kicked off the current wave, and performance was good, but build quality doesn't seem to be as high as the other options at this point, from the suits I've been able to look at in person.

Re: [rushchaser] One piece tracking suit opinions? [In reply to] Can't Post

My biggest advice is do a shit ton of tracking jumps in a two piece first. I think people underestimate the power and quick stall characteristics of these types of suits. Just as you shouldn't start wingsuit base on an aura/su/apache, you shouldn't start tracking on a one piece. People will of course ignore this advice. Some will do fine, some will have close calls, some will die, and some will become internet sensations and may later die. Such is base. Slow and steady wins the race.

If you cant track comfortably past the power lines off high ultimate in a 2 piece, you have no business in a one piece :)

I believe they are shutting down, or have already shut down. Hopefully someone will correct me if that's not the case.

I think he was replying to the previous question if s-fly is shutting down, which I've heard is true from numerous sources. Yes yes, we all love original PF tracking suits, myself included ;).

Offtopic, but has the classic ts ever been changed or upgraded? Or has it been the same since it released?

Is it still possible to run like hell with this one-piece ?
Look like the leg wing is too low. And if you can't run, it's not a tracking suit Wink

Hehe, right..Laugh yes, it's possible to run. Feels the same if you are wearing normal ts, but looks a bit more stupid Laugh

Anyway. If you can't run in it, I have the solution right for you Laugh

I'd even say (given what 2 pieces are truly capable of) that's a relatively low bar that should be easily achievable by anyone who dedicates a bit of study and more than a handful of jumps to getting it done. Certainly anyone who thinks it's too hard or they'll never be able to make it is doubly disqualified from getting a monosuitWink

Re: [Fledgling] One piece tracking suit opinions? [In reply to] Can't Post

yeah sure :) Considering that the change was made 10 months after the original was released, question is how many jumpers saw the original - original... not many active jumpers for sure... Tongue
