The Preserve 1
This parachute canopy is commonly used in Softie Parachute Systems but can also be found in other compatible parachute systems including National, Butler, Skydiving reserves and some military models.
This parachute packs thin and is lightweight. It is made with extremely low porosity fabric offering a slow rate of descent. It consists of orange and white nylon fabric for easy rescue spotting.

It is a good replacement parachute in some systems where the original parachute is no longer airworthy.

It can be purchased separately from Pennsylvania Parachute Company and installed in your system by us or your own rigger if compatible.
