The Up Paragliding Cockpit (also knows as a flight deck) has been designed with visibility and instrument protection in mind. Velcro loops act as an alternative chest strap attachment point. Side ribbons attach to the main karabiners, and can be used to adjust the angle of the cockpit. Sewn-in loops can be used for attaching a camera, hook knife or mobile phone.
The “Baltoro” jacket is sewn from a water resistant dual-layer laminate fabric with a breathable membrane and sports welded seams. It is internally lined with mesh to improve moisture transport. When not in use, the entire jacket fits inside the adjustable hood.
Flying in winter can be great, but only when the fingers aren’t coming off. And spring thermals take you higher, where the exact same problems occur – it gets uncomfortably cold for the fingers. So we made a glove for this time of year, in a membrane design and a stylish look.
