Vortex Complete Skydiving Rig Gear Package.

The starting price of this ChutingStar Gear Package includes:

  • Base price of Vortex harness/container

  • Stock or Custom PD Sabre2 main canopy

  • Stock or Custom PD Reserve canopy


Substitutions of main or reserve canopies are available as well as for the AAD (see the price difference drop down boxes). Extra options for the Vortex can be added above or on the custom order form. The initial assembly, inspection and packing can also be added with a full rig purchase above.

Additional information on each part can be found in their respective individual listing on ChutingStar.com. 

The Vortex sports unique design features, making it one of the most comfortable rigs to jump. It's so comfortable that you can hardly feel it in free fall. And it's so much more affordable than other skydiving rigs as nearly every option is included in the base price.

The Vortex is now available with the Skyhook and Magnetic Riser Covers options!

The back pad yoke is contoured to the shape of your body for extra comfort. The cut out in the back pad makes the harness fit snuggly. The splayed leg straps add extra comfort when under canopy.

The harness is custom made to fit your size and measurements.

Awesome Rig
I purchased this complete system in August 2017 when the manufacturer was having a great summer package deal and received it in early November 2017 although the advertisement said 6 weeks it ended up taking double which is no big deal for me. I am sure they had a ton of orders because of the price so it pushed out the dates and also I ordered a custom main canopy. With an AAD it was slightly more expensive than buying a good used rig so I went for it.

While this brand is not as commonly found as others on the dz I find it to be made of quality materials as does my rigger. All the jumpers in the loft were excited to take a peek at it when it arrived since most had not seen a vortex before. I ended up measuring myself with their easy to use instructions and it fits great. I have a V5 container and I purchased the Volt 170 main and 180 reserve. The main snivels open very gently which is great compared to the safire 190 I had previously used. I have an rsl and vigil cuatro AAD and paid ChutingStar to have everything pre-assembled. I am very satisfied with all of it.

ChutingStar customer service was great and Laura answered all my questions and included a hand written thank you note on delivery. Overall I am very satisfied with the quality of the rig, the performance of the canopy and the customer service. I cannot comment on the durability as it is new but I wanted to give everything a good ranking.

Special thanks to Laura at Chuting Star for answering all my questions during the prdering process and even checking with Parachute Systems to see when my rig was shipped.
