So I couldn’t get my JLCR to keep my parachute bundle closed no matter how I packed, even with just moderate shaking and pulling my packjob would start to slip and as slippery as the fabric is it would eventually come all apart. Being familiar with the violence of falling objects (skydiver and BASE jumper and your rocket videos), I knew it wouldn’t cut it. I enjoy sewing and was making my own stuff anyway so I came up with this for my level one flight. I brought this up in another thread but didn’t want to further hijack that... It works great and while I continue to refine the design I have something that works. What follows is how I pack my 40” 50% hemispheric parachute into this blanket.
