The Apco mayday series of paragliding, hang gliding and paramotoring reserves are of legendary build quality.
Apco have been manufacturing reserves forever! I think they rank has the world’s mostly widely distributed rescue parachute. Certainly there have been countless successful deployments, so this reserve has a cracking track record. The Mayday 16 is unique in being manufactured from zero porosity cloth, this enables the Mayday 16 to achieve a brilliant descent rate with a comparatively small reserve.
Apco Aviation started manufacturing the Mayday in 1984, and since then put over 20,000 pieces into service in the paragliding and hang gliding markets. The Apco Mayday has hundreds of life saving deployments to its name, from beginners to world champions.
