Look at Filson, Tumi, Belstaff and J. Crew.

If you call it a manbag or a murse, then yes.


A briefcase or a messenger bag are just fine.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Ugh.....I just bought about 15 bags of cypress mulch, plus a burning bush plant, plus two yellow euonymus', plus 80lbs of peat moss.


Ah the joys of home ownership, lol.

Most jumpers say it'll cost half your paycheck for the rest of your life . It's not far from the truth.

You'll spend between $2k and $3k for training to get your license, depending on how quickly you pick it up.

Don't purchase gear until you have your license, rent the student gear until then. Most student gear has different safety features and is de-tuned, which is nice until you get the hang of canopy control. When you're ready, it is wise to buy used for your first set of gear. Figure $3k-$6k. Any dropzone is going to have several FAA riggers around, their advice and a PPI before buying gear is essential.

If you decide that it is your thing, it becomes a lifestyle and most people rearrange their lives to accommodate the cost. Between gear, lift tickets, travel, and wind tunnel time, it adds up very quickly.

You are close to Skydive Chicago! It is one of the best dropzones in the country, you will be surrounded by amazing jumpers. Good luck!

I have a friend who has gotten into the sport over the past couple of years...it is all she does with her life now, I've never wanted to ask how much she's probably spent
