It's HERE! Black Friday 2016 Baby! The holiday season is upon us...and for shoppers like you, it all starts the day after Thanksgiving with Black Friday.
The ChutingStar Crew has loaded up our site with tons of discounted items and sales sections. In order to get you where you need to be before the sale gear and goods are gone, here's the Top 10 List below of what to find where, along with additional coupon codes to save you even more cash this holiday season.
Because skydiving is such a small niche in the realm of things to do with our time on Earth, the community of manufacturers were slow to actually have any type of holiday sales. The frame of thought was that specialized gear for skydiving was the same price on Black Friday as it was any other time of the year...no exceptions. Take it or leave it.
Well sometime around 2010 or so, that changed, in part thanks to ChutingStar's cutting-edge online web store and our decision to go ahead and discount some items for our customers, even though we weren't getting it any cheaper from the manufacturer. Since that time, every year, a few more manufacturers get in the holiday spirit, and have started actually really discounting items, to further allow us to have a true holiday sales season for shoppers with patience to wait until now to dole out that cash.
And 2016, has turned out to be the best ever for discounts on the big items...containers, canopies and full gear packages! Here's the rundown, so you don't miss any of them: Continue reading
ChutingStar has been carrying Dan BC's book Above All Else for the past 5 years, and we have sold well over 100 copies, but I had never taken the time to read the book until this past week.
WOW...what have I been waiting for? What a story of life...from pursuing your dreams to just trying to survive to a glimpse of the afterlife as well as perseverance, determination and the rewards of never giving up.
Above All Else is a page-turner from the first chapter account of his conversation with his teammate James in the afterlife while Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld was in a coma to the step-by-step personal and business guidance at the end for "Playing to Win." Continue reading

There are no limits to the number of points you can earn and spend. Ways to earn points include: Continue reading
With the release of the STELLA electronic analog altimeter by LB Altimeters (aka Larsen & Brusgaard), skydivers woke up to a brand new world in analog altimeters to choose from this week.
Even manufacturer Mads Larsen was surprised by the demand and response a few days before initial STELLA orders shipped out.
"The STELLA seems to have become very popular even though nobody has jumped it, yet..." he told ChutingStar. Continue reading

Skydivers LOVE their Cookie G3 helmets as well as their GoPro cameras...but combining those two together has been a bit of a gamble in the past as the full-face helmet didn't have any type of cutaway system. And a cutaway system is important at 2,000 feet when that pilot chute just got snagged on your camera mount at the end of a crazy, funneled skydive with a "save yourself" deployment.
Cookie hasn't yet developed a cutaway system for the helmet, so skydivers have resolved to either take the risk, make their own cutaway system, make a mount that is less likely to get snagged or find a mount that cuts away the camera.
The first cutaway system for mounting a GoPro camera came out of Sweden by skydiver Daniel Fagrell. Daniel developed and produced the GrellFAB mount.
With the launch of the new Ion Digital Altimeter from Elemental Technologies at the same time a mainstay, the Alti-2 N3, is being discontinued, the digital altimeter market for skydivers is getting shaken and stirred.
So what are the features of each that would make you choose one over the other? And what is this new Ion all about? Continue reading
