Love the Lobo

5 out of 5 stars Lobo Rated 5 by: Larrythemaster on 2016-03-25

I've been BASE jumping now for 18 years. I've seen BASE canopies evolve from 7cell skydiving canopies to BASE specific canopies. The Lobo, in my opinion, IS the next generation BASE canopy. It is made by a company and people that have practically been around since the beginning of BASE jumping. A company and people that I can trust, which is important to me. They won't put equipment out on the market until it is thoroughly tested.
There are so many aspects of this canopy that I love, including it's openings and most importantly it's landings. It lands great! I'm able to sink it in on tight landing areas and it's really fun swooping it over water or land. It's light weight material makes it awesome for long hikes. It is very responsive and easy to pack. At first I was intimidated by the reverse tail pocket design, but after packing it a few times I found it very easy to pack and useful in preventing line dump. The Lobo is by far the best BASE canopy that I've ever flown and has become my go-to canopy for all occasions.
