The H124 low level parachute canopy incorporates a number of proven features to meet the performance requirements. These include a shaped canopy, internal rigging lines, inflation pockets on the periphery of the canopy and an internal parachute.  These features ensure fast and consistent openings, comfortable ‘g’ levels during canopy inflation, rapid damping of canopy oscillation, a low rate of descent and a high tolerance to twisting of the rigging lines.

The three-point closure harness is of the split saddle type and is fully adjustable to provide a correct fit for all sizes of paratrooper. The harness incorporates canopy ground disconnects, two sets of D-ring anchorage points for the attachment of a reserve parachute assembly and the weapons/equipment container. An integral carrying bag is fitted to the side of the outer pack for recovery from the Drop Zone. The outer pack fully encloses the deployment bag. The harness has been designed for minimum restriction to the paratrooper’s mobility on the ground.




The static line is stowed externally on the top of the outer pack and is fully covered by a protective flap. The static line, which incorporates a ‘draw’ handle and protective reinforcement at the point of contact with the aircraft door, terminates in a double-entry snap-hook for direct connection to the aircraft anchor cable.
