The Mini Softie is an extremely small, lightweight and
comfortable backpack parachute system designed for use in today's
restricted cockpit environments.
The Mini Softie is for use by persons weighing up to 240 lbs.,
and is available with a conventional or aerobatic harness. The
container is 2.25" thick x 15" wide x 24" long.
This parachute is now available in a type of pack that is one
inch wider, which results in a pack that is also one inch thinner.
This reduces the size of the pack by an inch. If the customer has
chosen the optional sweat pad, this means that the total thickness
would be reduced from three inches to two.
