The Curv Container
- Eliminates the gap at the back by curving to your body
- Specially designed end tabs that result a lower profile of the main container
- Increase of 10% volume
The Voodoo Curv design allows a smooth
airflow over the back of the rig and jumper in any freefall attitude.
The Voodoo Curv incorporates the Bio
Curv backpad where the profile of the backpad, instead of being straight, is curved
inward at the midpoint and follows the natural curve of the back. This allows the
containers to hug the back intimately and eliminate the gap between the back and
This then allows for an increase of approximately
10% in the available volume for each main container size with no increase in width
A totally new concept is the “Bio-Yoke”
configuration (Patent Pending). This design concept incorporates a secondary shoulder
yoke that holds the containers higher on the back and relieves the pressure of the
regular shoulder yoke with its associated webbing and hardware. The Bio-Yoke spreads
the load evenly across the back and shoulders.
The fit of the Voodoo Curv is more akin
to wearing a vest or backpack than putting on an older style rig.
With the distribution of the weight across
the entire back, the perceived weight of the system is less than the actual weight.
The inside of the yoke and leg pads are
built with an inside seam resulting in greater comfort.
The main container side flaps incorporate
specially designed end tabs that result in a lower profile of the main container.
The Voodoo Harness
- More comfortable during canopy flight
- Incorporates webbing stow band - no more losing them!
- Stainless steel mini ring hardware standard
- The upper harness is built from TY-8 webbing for comfort and flexibility.
- The leg straps are built from TY-7 webbing backed with TY-12 to preclude slippage
of the stainless leg adapters.
- Stainless steel mini ring hardware is standard for looks and durability.
- All housings are completely fabric for looks and utilize stainless steel clamps
The Voodoo harness has become the standard
of the world for fit, comfort and strength.
The 3-ring geometry has been changed
to slightly lower the 3-ring location for a more comfortable seated position during
The lower hip ring geometry has been
changed to allow more flexibility of the horizontal back strap, allowing the containers
to seek a more natural location on the back.
The leg strap junction has been totally
re-designed to provide greater comfort and security around the upper thigh. This
holds the leg strap and pad in place and prevents them from sliding down the leg
in freefall. This virtually eliminates the need for the “bungee” cross connector.
The chest strap incorporates a webbing
stow band to replace the elastic keepers that stretch out of shape or get lost.
The lower main lift webs incorporate
slim line modular pockets for the 3-ring release and reserve ripcord.
The pockets also protect the lift web
webbing from wear, abrasion and ultra violet degradation, and allow the main lift
webs to stretch under high “G” loads, preventing hard pulls of the reserve and 3-ring
