The quality of skydiving, BASE and paragliding gear is amazingly high these days, which ironically makes it harder to decide on brands. If just about every manufacturer makes quality, safe gear, how do you choose? So we want to know how you make your gear choices. Do you rely on your local rigger or gear store for recommendations? Do you ask your instructor? Do you read all the promotional material? Do you choose what your favorite pro uses? Do you have a complex spreadsheet and algorithms?
How do you choose what gear to buy?
