How to Pack a Deployment Bag
We often receive this question: "What is the best way to pack a parachute into a deployment bag?" To answer, we've provided a pictorial below on how these bags should be packed.
IMPORTANT: UNDERSTAND THAT WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THIS IS THE BEST WAY OR THAT IT WILL WORK IN YOUR CASE. AS ALWAYS YOU TAKE FULL RESONSIBILITY TO ENSURE YOUR PARACHUTE IS PROPERLY PACKED AND THAT A SUITABLE DEPLOYMENT METHOD IS PROVIDED!
Note about packing the Iris Ultra: It packs the same as the elliptical parachutes; however, the initial organization of the canopy is slightly different.
The example below shows how to pack a CFC-120" parachute into a CDB-55, 12"L. This would fit into just 12" of a 5.5" or 6" airframe.
Step 14 - Fold over the flap and we're done! Be sure to connect a pilot parachute to the top of the bag to pull it off.
