Feathers off the Eiger

Thursday, 16 September 2010 7:39, by Asylum

For Mr. Andy West, the Feather BASE parachute and Profile Harness/Container system, along with the Eiger prove to be a perfect combination of light weight BASE equipment, comfort, access and style of Wing-suit flight.  "Openings-all but perfect--steady and smooth and any adjustments seem possible by packing variations...in some ways the Feather has a paraglider like feel and allows for lower turns,SUPER IN DEEPER BRAKES!- maybe its strongest point.  It flairs out well no matter what. The whole set up has won me over.Thanks for giving me the chance to fly some GREAT gear..."

  Pictured here on final approach with the Eiger in the background, the Feather has been most productive and consistent, providing the confidence to dedicate another season to this unique jump.(photo:Barry Holubeck)
