Your parachute is completely customizable. The standard parachute comes with Thread-Thru (TT) chest - flattest and lightest of the connectors Softie offers.

Quick Ejector Snap/V-Ring (QE) are an optional upgrade- Allow for fast, easy, one hand disconnection of the harness attach points. Quick ejectors offer a nice convenience, however, they are bulkiest and heaviest of all the connector hardware Softie offers. One popular options is personalize your Softie with your initials or aircraft registration numbers. Choose any combination of up to six (6) letters and numbers and Softie will embroider them on the right side of the harness in your choice of color.

Paraphernalia Aerobatic Harness

Aerobatic Harness Option (No Extra Charge)

Softie's unique crossover style Aerobatic Harness is designed specifically for pilots doing high NEGATIVE G aerobatic maneuvers. It is designed so that the leg strap connecting hardware is moved away from the hips where it can dig in and cause pain and discomfort during high negative G aerobatic maneuvers. The harness is attached by having the leg straps pass through a high strength soft loop at the hip and then cross over and buckle on the opposite side of the harness just below the rib cage. This unique design has proven to be very popular with aerobatic pilots.

Average delivery for most custom parachute orders is 4 weeks. Wings and Wheels maintains stock of popular models. Contact us for in-stock immediate availability.

You can enter Color and Hardware Options during Check-Out. Wings and Wheels will adjust pricing for additional options.
