Pilot chute shoulder pouch Can't Post

Hello,

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?

Thanks

Jer

From your research does this pilot chute folding technic increase the chances of an hesitation?

Thanks

I worked for Apex when this product was finalized/launched.

I would suggest that PC inflation would be similar to a stowed jump unless the PC was aired out/fluffed before jumping.

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.

Thanks
