Skydiving equipment typically includes: Parachute System: This consists of the main parachute and the reserve parachute.

The main parachute is the primary chute used during the jump, while the reserve parachute is a backup in case the main one fails to deploy properly.

Modern parachutes are usually made of strong, lightweight fabrics such as ripstop nylon.

Container or Harness: This is the system that holds the parachutes on the skydiver's body.

It includes straps and fittings that secure the parachutes in place during the jump.

Containers are designed to be comfortable and provide easy access to the parachutes for deployment.

AAD (Automatic Activation Device): An AAD is a safety device that automatically deploys the reserve parachute if it detects that the skydiver is in a dangerous situation, such as descending too fast at low altitude.

AADs are an essential safety feature in modern skydiving equipment.

Helmet: A helmet is worn to protect the skydiver's head during the jump.

It also often includes features such as a visor or goggles to protect the eyes from wind and debris.

Jumpsuit: A jumpsuit is worn to provide protection from the wind and to improve aerodynamics during the jump.

Jumpsuits are usually made of durable, wind-resistant fabric and are designed to be form-fitting to reduce drag.

Altimeter: An altimeter is a device used to measure altitude.

In skydiving, altimeters are worn by the skydiver and provide crucial information about altitude during the jump, including when to deploy the parachute.

Goggles: Goggles are worn to protect the eyes from wind, debris, and the cold during freefall.

Gloves: Gloves are worn to protect the hands during the jump, especially from cold temperatures at high altitudes.

AAD (Automatic Activation Device): An AAD is a safety device that automatically deploys the reserve parachute if it detects that the skydiver is in a dangerous situation, such as descending too fast at low altitude.
