Hi-5®

RAM AIR TACTICAL PARACHUTE SYSTEMS

Fly Farther, Carry More, Land Softly

Overview

The Hi-5® is our most recent innovation to our line of parachutes. The Hi-5® is truly one of a kind, not only does it have exceptional ram air glide performance, but it also has the ability to lose altitude quickly similar to a troop parachute. In order to achieve this, our engineers designed our patent pending Glide Modulation System. Additional toggles are located on the front risers, which allow the jumper to gradually modulate the glide of the canopy, giving the jumper a glide ratio anywhere between 5:1 and 1:1.

This eliminates the need to do spirals or S-turns to lose altitude, and allows for accurate landings. The Glide Path Modulation is a unique and powerful tool for any type of military free fall operations.

The Hi-5 370® Offers:

  • A higher All Up Weight (AUW) of 485lbs on both the main and reserve
  • A greater glide ratio of 5:1
  • A docile & safe canopy
  • A silent canopy
  • Ease of use
  • Ease of maintenance
