National’s Back Parachute was developed with the pilot in mind and is our most popular model. The teardrop shape provides flexibility and maximum comfort even in the tightest cockpits. The shape and size make this model the most all-around universal parachute.

  • With over 20,000 parachutes sold, National has an established and proven track record.
