Pilot chute shoulder pouch
What do you think about the pilot chute shoulder pouch from Apex Base? Is it worth getting for those sketchy antenna exit points? For those of you who’ve used it, are there any tips and tricks when using it?

Okay, I’ll get one but won’t take it to the lower objects (the ones where I can’t afford any hesitation). Also, I think I will try to S fold the pilot chute like a regular hand held and put it into the pouch instead of doing the stowed folding method.

For anyone interested, I’ve received the pouch about 2 months ago and have done quite a few jumps with this system. It works really well with the magnet bridle and make the pc very accessible. It is loose enough for a 48” but tight enough that it doesn’t slip out even when bumping it on ladder bars, anti climbs and things like that. S folding the pc into it as opposed to doing the stowed folding technique works as well, however I always like to dump the pc and refolding it right before the jump. Overall very happy with this piece and will continue using it on A.’s.
