Para–Phernalia, Inc. has designed and manufactured the SOFTIE line of pilot emergency parachutes since 1979. Their emergency parachutes are known world wide for being the highest quality, most comfortable, and reliable emergency parachutes available.

There are seven different SOFTIE models which make up the SOFTIE product line. Each can be customized to suit your individual needs. Whether you fly powered aerobatics, gliders, warbirds, or any other type of aircraft, they have an emergency parachute system designed for your application.

Mini Softie – The Mini Softie is an extremely small, lightweight and comfortable backpack parachute system designed for use in todays restricted cockpit environments.

Micro Softie – A narrower and shorter version of the Mini Softie. The Micro Softie is specifically designed t fit smaller individuals.

Wedge Softie – A wedged–shaped version of the popular Mini and Micro Softies, the Wedge Softie is designed to add lumbar and sacral support during high, positive “G” maneuvers. It is ideal for the upright seating found in Pitts style seating.

Long Softie – The chair style Long Softie is designed to conform to and maximize the comfort of the contoured seating found in today's high performance gliders and aerobatic aircraft.

Seatpack Softie – A seat pack style parachute that offers the same comfort and reliability of other Softie models. The Seatpack Softie is designed for use in aircraft that simply have no room for a backpack style parachute.
