SkyAngle Deployment FreeBag™

Based on a tried and true military/sport "free bag" design, the SkyAngle Deployment FreeBagTM attaches directly to the nose cone with a 1" tubular nylon (4,000 psi) tether. All stress points are reinforced with Kevlar® thread. Ingenious in its simplicity and ease-of use, this deployment sleeve completely envelopes the parachute in fireproof Aramid® fabric while insuring a reliable, orderly deployment! Complete illustrated instructions are included.

SkyAngle Deployment FreeBagsTM are engineered with high quality materials, impeccable craftsmanship, and are very affordable. They are available in four sizes, three of which are tailored to fit our SkyAngle CERT-3 main chutes. (They work great with other brands as well.)

*** Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price - prices are set by your dealer.  Measurements are nominal.  Large, XLarge and XXLarge sizes will fit SkyAngle CERT-3 chutes of the same size designation.


The FreeBag is designed to be attached directly to your nose cone and deployed separately. A separate chute in addition to the main (and a drogue, if used) will be necessary for the safe recovery of your nose and bag assembly independently of your main airframe. Deployment in this manner will virtually insure main chute inflation without entanglement. It also reduces main airframe recovery weight, allowing use of a smaller chute that normal. [NOTE: While the nose/bag combo can be secured to the airframe via shock cord, doing so may increase the likelihood of entanglement and/or possible failure to deploy the main chute. We do include a loop sewn inside the bag, however, for custom applications of this nature.]
