SOFTIE Colors and Options
Customize your SOFTIE with stripes and trim colors to match your aircraft or your own personal taste.
Here are some tips on choosing colors:
- Remember that darker colors hide dirt better
- If choosing two colors for the stipe option on the container sections labeled A & C (enlarge the diagram below) it typically looks much better to make them the same color. Of course A, B & C can be different colors.

Inflatable Lumbar Support
They are very popular with glider pilots or anyone pilot on extended flights that want to change their lower back (lumbar) position. They give great back support. They are manufactured by Silver Parachute Sales and must be installed by them. They can be placed in most Softie parachutes.
This fixed pad provides additional lower back support. It is ONLY available on the LONG SOFTIE model.
Extended Back Pad (For Mini or Micro Parachutes only)
They are approximately 3/8" to 1/2" thick. They are very popular with aerobatic pilots and help keep their parachute in place when doing aerobatics. They zip on and off easily. It prevents the chute from riding up with the minimum amount under you. They are easy to zip on and off.
Comfort Pad (For Seatpacks Only)
The standard size is 2" thick. They can also be made thinner or thicker depending on your needs. They snap on and off easily.
