  • Skydiving Gear Savings Something Special in 2016

    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.Holiday Skydiving Equipment Sales at ChutingStar!

    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
