Team CRWSADERS are a British Canopy Formation team using the Parachute Systems Vortex containers with the dynamic corner options. Team Captain Pete Thornton comments 'we chose the Vortex container as it provides reliability, durability and is absolutely fit for purpose for the competitive CF jumping we do, not only that but they look and feel great on'. The team compete at National and International level jumping and training in the UK and abroad. The team chose the dynamic corner option to support on heading openings at sub terminal speeds.
