13 Mistakes

From top to bottom…

  • No goggles
  • On her left side loop is going through the middle 3 ring
  • Left side, the yellow cable is not connected
  • Her right side the RSL is going under the cutaway housing and then connected
  • The altimeter is on the wrong arm
  • Alti is not turned on
  • Alti is upside down
  • The helmet has cameras and she has only 50 jumps
  • Chest strap is routed wrongly at the buckle
  • Chest strap is wrapped around the harness covering the reserve handle
  • T-shirt isn’t tucked into her pants or secured by a bungee
  • On her left side the leg strap excess is hanging out
