Vector 3 Micron / M-Series

In 1994, Relative Workshop, unveiled the Vector 3 Harness/Container system - the first FreeFly rig on the market. This new design incorporated concepts that originated through years of research and development, and was introduced to meet the demands of modern SkyFlying.

In 1999, using the latest technology and the knowledge Relative Workshop gained in building the Vector III, we designed a container system aimed towards the growing trend of smaller canopies, the Micron- the most technically advanced harness and container system in the world. Relative Workshop did this by hiring a team of engineers never seen before in the arena of sport skydiving. These engineers, who happen to be world-class competitive skydivers, reviewed our systems designs and applied sound engineering practices to them. In doing this they were able to improve the function of the Vector III riser covers, pin protection, comfort and the operation of the three-ring release system.

Consistent innovators and perfectionists, our engineers continued to make improvements to the production and design of our products. This determination to make the most comfortable and safest skydiving systems in the world has resulted in yet another update to our "classic" Vector III. In February of 2002 we introduced the Vector 3 M-Series. The M-Series utilizes Micron technology to improve function, safety and comfort and is designed to accommodate larger canopy sizes to that of the Micron.

In 2005 United Parachute Technologies bought the assets of Relative Workshop. United Parachute Technologies continues the tradition of excellence and detail.

Riser Protection: Ultra secure over-the-shoulder tuck tabs stay put through the most rigorous maneuvers and at high air speeds. An additional overlapping secondary riser cover ensures that the risers stay in place until the main container is opened. 
Pin Protection: Both the main and reserve flaps are designed to conform better to the container. This ergonomic design eliminates protruding corners or edges that can catch on doorjambs, bulkheads, or other sharp objects. The reserve pin cover utilizes 3 tuck tabs to remain securely in place. None of these tabs are tucked into any of the reserve closing flaps, making it impossible for them to interfere with a reserve activation. The main pin cover closes from the bottom up and tucks securely into the top-closing flap. 
Zero Bridle Exposure: The Vector 3 configured with bottom of container deployment totally eliminates bridle exposure and the need for hook and pile fastener on the bridle. 
Comfort: The Pro-Fit harness combined with uni-body container construction offers a feel like no other harness/container system. The harness curves nicely over the shoulders, and the new yoke design prevents the harness from slipping off of narrow shoulders and eliminates the need for chest rings and the problems associated with them. 
Quality: Just as with all of our rigs, the Vector 3 is constructed to exacting standards using only the finest materials. Even with nominal care, your Vector 3 will perform faithfully for years. You won't have to look very hard to find Vectors out there with thousands of jumps on them and lots of life left in them.

Every rig currently on the market contains features first introduced by us i.e. hand deploy, 3-ring, riser covers.

Vector Student SE

The Student Vector SE harness and container system is built to the same demanding specifications as all the United Parachute Technologies products incorporating the Vector 3 design and features - designed for jumpers by engineers, well tested by our professional test partners in the field, and built to the highest standard by craftsmen. The reliability, durability, and ease of maintenance made the "cost per student jump"-ratio extremely low. This is combination with the flexibility and easy handling had made the Student Vector SE the primary choice of student equipment by most major student operations around the world.

The standard Student Vector SE is designed to quickly and easily be set up for a large variety of deployment systems:
Direct Bag Static Line
Pilot Chute Assist Static Line
Rip Cord
Hand Deploy
The Student Vector SE can be adapted to meet many types of specific needs in case a single purpose system is required.

Tandem Sigma


A special safety pin prevents premature container openings if release handles are accidentally pulled prior to drogue deployment. This pin is automatically extracted once the drogue is deployed, thus arming the drogue release handles.
A diagram on the inside main pin flap makes it easy for anyone to do a pin check while inspecting the new disc drogue release.
Magnetic Riser Covers
Super clean design of the new drogue pouch eliminates the need for velcro or tuck tabs. Packing is quicker and trouble free.

The drogue bridle is completely covered. But even if you accidentally snag the drogue bridle, it will not open the main container.

Both left & right handles for drogue release
The right drogue release handle is conveniently positioned on the upper right leg strap to simulate a BOC depolyment for the student. Its permanent position eliminates the worry of relocating it on each jump, or the possibility of being accidentally dislodged.
The Automatic Release Lanyard is now incorporated into the RSL. If the RSL side riser breaks, or releases by itself for any reason, this feature will automatically release the other riser, thus preventing a main-reserve entanglement.
The RSL, with its Tru-Lok pin, is designed so that only a hard, straight-up pull will cause a left side cutaway and reserve activation, greatly reducing the chance of accidental functioning..
We believe that you should be able to activate your reserve with either hand. So our RSL is designed to also function as a right hand reserve ripcord, in the event that the standard left hand reserve ripcord cannot be reached, becuase of injury or student interference.
