CompBag

Uncompromising compressed

M / L
U-Turn now offers a stylish solution to act contrary to packing problems. The light COMPBAG is not only protecting the equipment, but also reduces the pack size very efficiently. The convenient bag was designed for harnesses as well as for the use as inner bag for gliders.

The content is compressed by closing the two solid zippers on the sides. Double side zip sliders and a flap on the bottom end simplify the closing through little resistance. The COMPBAG is combining design and functionality in compressed form. The bag is made out of tear proof light material, strengthened seams are providing additional strength on the particularly strained places. On the bottom end netting valves are providing a balance of the ram pressure and an optimized aeration of the equipment.
Especially effective is the bag with harnesses that have a foam protector, for example the allround harness RX3 because of the high compressibility of the foam protector, the pack size can be reduced significantly. An efficient compression is also reached with the COMPBAG when used as glider inner bag.

The tube-bag consists of high-quality, breathable material and is internally lined with an extra gentle cloth. The tube-bag is padded in the area where the leading edge of the glider is located. Together with the elaborate seams and the YKK zippers, the new U-Turn bag meets the highest functional and quality demands.
Never has it been so easy to pack a glider in such a careful manner. The tube-bag can be folded as necessary to store in the actual backpack for transportation. The tub-bag is equipped laterally with a circumferential net structure. This allows moisture to escape even when in a consolidated state.

Softlink

M / L / XL

Holding much more than they promise

In the parachute area soft links have been established for a long time since they’re a light alternative for flexible links without metal. Soft links are used instead of mallions, for the reserve-parachute-suspension and even as link to the harness.

The extreme saving of weight is only one reason for the rising demand of the Dyneema-link. Compared to usual metal links, soft links are absolutely shatterproof and most intensively loadable. Especially in the paraglider area the soft link is an efficient alternative for the homogeneous link between lines and straps. The soft link is looped, depending on the size, 2 to 3 times and then sealed with a loop. The production is very sophisticated since the specific line material is spliced three times and sewed afterwards.
