Which Kifaru pack systems are jumpable?

I'm interested mainly in the pointman and navigator packs.

By jumpable I am refering to the way I trip out the side of a C-17 and have to bicycle kick until I land.

I don't know what is and isn't jumpable, but if you perform a search, you'll find that this has been discussed before.

Everything is jumpable once, including an M1 tank.

There are pix of one of the forum guys (Javahed, not around much lately) getting ready to go air-falling with a Zulu with a bunch of pockets. Pix on one of the Zulu pages.

Yeah I saw the Zulu, was just wondering how he rigged it up, and if the Navigator or Pointman could be rigged the same.

Point taken, I'll preform the search.

It's OK to 'love' your gear, but not that much.

Anything can be jumped as long as its dimensions are less than the opening from which you plan to exit and the combined weight does not exceed the capabilities of the parachute you are using.

The rest is just figuring out how to rig it.

Hey John Clark, it's been awhile since I've seen you here on the board. How have you been? How's things in your neck of the woods? Take care brother, and don't be a stranger.
