Reserve containers all contain a spring-loaded pilot chute and close with at least one ripcord pin and closing loop. The ripcord goes to a handle located on the left side of the wearer’s chest. In the details—specifically, where to put the pilot chute, where the automatic activation device should cut the closing loop(s) in an emergency and how to configure the reserve static-line system—manufacturers differ. You’ll hear and read a lot of opinions about which reserve system is the best, but you can count on any reserve system in common use to work properly under ordinary conditions.
