Reserve Pack Tray. The reserve pack tray (figure 14, item 1) is designed to reduce the profile and give
the jumper added vision as he looks down and prepares for landing. The pack is manufactured from
Textured Nylon Duck Cloth (MIL-C-43734) fabric and is stiffened with a wire frame. Inside the pack tray,
elastic loops accommodate the reserve risers when packed.

Reserve Risers. The reserve risers (figure 15, item 1) are 48 inches long manufactured from Type VIII
nylon webbing. The risers have a 15-inch length of hook and pile fastener tape positioned between the
front and rear to prevent riser offset during high speed deployments. The risers are left and right handed
because of the left/right reserve snap hooks positioned on the lower end of each riser.
