Use for elastic stow bands in Tandem Parachutes

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on December 2, 2009
I know this is an unusual use for this material, but there is a similar product on the market that works well but is too expensive and does not last as long. I am able to make the stow bands for less than the commercially produced ones cost, and the ones I make with this tubing last many times longer. When turn-around time is critical for a commercial parachute center, longer lasting stow bands substantially reduces downtime. An added plus is that these stows have better holding strength than the ones otherwise available. This makes for more reliable deployment sequencing. And everyone wants their parachute deployments to be reliable! I will continue to use this tubing as long as you sell it. Thanks!

Pros: Strong, long life, easy to use and replace when worn out
Cons: Bulky, difficult & time consuming to make the stow bands...
Would recommend: Yes
