I found Parasential to be helpful and knowledgeable when buying my Softie and am very pleased with the parachute. John Gorringe, ASG29
I'm delighted with my Softie parachute, it's a super design, which is both light and comfortable to use. What's more,
I recently had the parachute re-packed and the re-packer commented on just how well it was put together. He added that
because of its quality he would be happy to re-pack it once a year instead of once every 6 months as he does with many
Many thanks for a great product. Chris G-CFRP Pegase 101a
I bought my Softie after trying on a fellow member's parachute (from Parasential). I find it very comfortable in my glider. My rigger - when repacking it - was very impressed with the quality of the rig. P.P. Shalbourne Soaring Society
Looking back I feel incredibly fortunate to now own a truly comfortable SOFTIE Parachute. I only came across them by chance. I actually went to try two second hand parachutes I had seen advertised. Having tried these two, I was then offered the option of trying a NEW SOFTIE. Immediately the difference in comfort was staggering even without actually flying with it. Now having flown over 100 hours in the last year with this parachute I simply would not consider anything else. It is remarkably comfortable and you really hardly know you are wearing it. The Service offered by Marjorie Hobby was absolutely first class, we were even loaned one for a competition prior to ours arriving from America. It was delivered on time and to the exact specification requested and I am absolutely delighted with it. I cannot recommend these Softie Parachutes more highly. Will Chappell, British Junior Team
I am just under 6ft 3” tall (at 1.90m) and finding a parachute which provides adequate lower back support can be a problem. I have found the Softie Mini to be the most comfortable parachute of any that I have worn. Jon Bastin (E4)
I have been delighted with my Softie parachute in all respects. I have had it for 9 months and a full soaring season. It has proven more comfortable and created more headroom in a tight Ventus 2A cockpit than my preceding parachute. I'm sure it would work well if needed and my two (larger) syndicate partners have been equally happy with it. To top it all, my 8 week old daughter got to lie on it during her first play in a glider. She is a connoisseur of comfort and was delighted to find herself recumbent on such soft sheepskin - high praise indeed... NJP, K4
I chose a Softie after wearing one of the Lasham owned parachutes and finding it very comfortable.
Marjorie at Parasential was very helpful with choosing which version I needed. The comprehensive colour range and having it custom made was an added bonus. The final touch of an embroidered name sealed the deal! John Brooke
I was very happy with the friendly advice and expert service I received from Parasential. I am very pleased with my 'Long Softie' parachute. I would certainly recommend the parachutes to my friends and colleages in the future. Peter Chaisty - South Wales G.C.
