We only sell gear directly to customers in our region (NC, Southeast USA).
If you submit an order request but are outside of our region,
we will connect you to the importer, dealer, or local gear rep nearest you.

The Apco Mayday Reserve Parachute Series are available for hang-glider pilots. This includes all three versions of  the classic mayday (Regular, Light and Superlight), and the Mayday SQ – Light Square Parachute).
We have upgraded our long bridle, to a double dyneema bridle, offering  lighter weight and lower bulk, with higher strength.
The Light Dyneema Bridle can be assembled onto all but the tandem and UL-28 Reserves (These  are supplied with specific bridles).
Assembly is simple, using a larks-head knot, and the bridle ends are protected with teflon sheaths, preventing meting of the bridle due to friction in case of a shock opening.
