The Talon label has long been synonymous with design innovation. It has brought to the market many design concepts, which have since become industry standard. One of the most recognisable being the FAST and Multiflex harness technology, which is now used by almost every other container manufacturer today.

The Talon FS is the latest innovation in our range of Harness/Container Systems. It has been developed in response to the exacting demands of today’s skydiving, from fast and furious Formation Skydiving, to the varied attitudes of flight in Freefly Skydiving and Freestyle. No matter what your passion, this container responds to it all.

Careful attention to safety details, as well as comfort features, are paramount in the overall design of the Talon FS, making it stand up to the most stringent requirements of today’s skydives.



Key Features
Upward closing main pin cover: Thus eliminating its potential to release during a sitting or stand up attitude of flight.
Body contoured horizontal webbing: makes this the most comfortable harness to wear - it actually hugs the container to the body allowing rig and wearer to move as one.
Wrap-around bridle protection system: which not only keeps the bridle covered in all attitudes of flight, but improves the aesthetic appeal of the container as well.
Hard Housings secured by clamps: this innovative system eliminates the need for hand tacking and allows for minimum reserve or release cable exposure at the handle end.
Flat RW8 stainless steel harness rings: prevent harness distortion, while maintaining incredible comfort and flexibility of movement, no matter what your attitude or speed of flight.
Yoke and shoulder design: provides superior comfort and aesthetics as well as keeping risers and housings fully covered and secure without hindering normal opening function.

We have taken the time to listen to our customers - the Talon FS is everything you’ve asked for in a container!

What to look for when buying a new container

  • A reputable manufacturer whose business and products have withstood the test of time.
  • Features that suit your individual skydiving needs.
  • A container with maximum safety features included.
  • A container that is comfortable and aesthetically appealing to wear.
  • Value for money.

Maintenance:

  • Will the container require much maintenance over time?
  • Are replacement components easily and quickly available? (remember TSO components such as the freebag must be supplied by the manufacturer)
  • Is the design rigger friendly?
  • If the container is damaged, can it be restored using the same materials and patterns locally, at a reasonable price?

Other considerations:

  • Are you able to speak directly with the people who are manufacturing your container?
  • Can late changes to your customised choices be made without time or financial penalty?
  • If you are not entirely happy with the fit or options, how easy is it to rectify with the manufacturer?
  • Does the price include any hidden extras?
  • Is the lead time acceptable to your needs?

Parachutes Australia believes that it has positively addressed all of these requirements with the Talon FS. It is a container that you will be proud to own.
