Sun Path's New Interactive Manual

Manual Sample Page

Have you ever wanted to see how they pack reserves at the Javelin Odyssey factory? Are you interested in maintaining your life-saving equipment in tip-top condition? Why wouldn't you be?!

The Odyssey: A Space-Age Manual

Jeff Johnston, Tom Parker and Ben Harris set out on a mission last year to come up with an all new interactive product manual for the Javelin and Javelin Odyssey harness container system. Local riggers recently came to the factory and test the manual – it was a thumbs-up instant success!

Video Tutorials

Years of experience and dedication to the sport have enabled the team at Sun Path to launch an easy to use product manual. The video tutorial allows you to follow the packing instructions at your own pace. It also answers common questions that are not addressed in print.

Auto Notification

An email signup option is included that notifies you if there are any revisions to the current manual and allows you to stay up to date with the most current information.


Subjects, demos and tutorials include the following and more:

  • Pre Jump Inspection
  • Reserve Packing
  • Main Packing
  • Maintenance
  • Main Closing Loop Length (commonly overlooked by jumpers)

Sun Path Products Manual Demonstration – a little sample to whet your appetite!

Retro Option

The manual is also available in a printed version if you would prefer to have a paper copy.

All of this information is available at Sun Path Manuals
