These are a simple bag split down the side. This bag is sized for a 4" ID airframe. Choose length based on required packing volume. All liners come with:
Our Parachute Liners have multiple uses:
- Nylon leash inside the bag to connect to the chute crown.
- Order by length and volume needed:
- 4"d by 6"l for chutes up to 55 cu" volume
- 4"d by 7"l for chutes up to 65 cu" volume
- 4"d by 8"l for chutes up to 65 cu" volume
- 4"d by 10"l for chutes up to 86 cu" volume
- 4"d by 12"l for chutes up to 108 cu" volume
- 4"d by 14"l for chutes up to 128 cu" volume
- To determine the size needed look at the total cubic inches for your Fruity Chute. Then make sure the bag you choose will accommodate at least that much volume.
- As a replacement for a Nomex Blanket. Because these are sewn specific to a given airframe size they are very efficient and less bulky than a Nomex Blanket.
- To provide abrasion protection when packing a parachute tightly. All our Peregrine IDS system use a Parachute Liner in order to protect the parachute when pressure packed.
- As a simple alternative to a deployment bag
CAUTION: Under some conditions the hot gas of the ejection charge can linger on the Nomex long enough to heat the fabric to high temperatures. To avoid damage to the parachute canopy fabric we do not recommend that you put the parachute canopy directly against the part of the Chute Liner that is closest to the charge. Instead, put your shock cord and other harnesses that are more resistant to the momentary heat of the ejection charge. Another trick is to add a layer of duct tape on the BP charge side of the Chute Liner to provide extra protection. When it gets burned, it is easy to replace. Or even better use a second smaller Nomex blanket to take the brunt of the heat.
