Re: Bryan Chong's first hand recount of the Low Speed Chase tragedy

Wow, that sucks. Skydiving rigs are made from type 13 webbing harness with a tensile strength 7000lbs. Heard lots of stories of openings hard enough to tear aortas and break femurs, but in 10 years I've never heard of a harness failure with that.

The webbing harness costs less than $3 a yard. :/
