Advance Impress 3
With this new design – without a seatboard – your body weight is supported by an ergonomic, crease-free seat surface, meaning that you definitely sit (or lie) more comfortably in the harness. This design does not create those pressure points that become a nuisance on long flights, and this is a clear advantage compared with a conventional harness.
The IMPRESS 3 weighs only 4.7 kg – quite revolutionary for a harness with speedbag and approved protector. This weight reduction results from the sum total of numerous design and material details; lighter materials and innovative design also considerably reduce the packed volume.
The results of a lot of wind tunnel measurements were considered in the development of the IMPRESS 3. We specifically directed our focus on the aerodynamics, namely the airflow over the chest and leg areas. A low drag and geometrically optimised harness with a novel cockpit-spoiler concept is the result.
- Innovative reserve compartment closure system
- Safe-T-System for the chest and leg straps
- Chest strap/speedbag safety link
- Quick-out carabiner capable
- Detachable instrument panel on the cockpit
- Camera pockets in the speedbag
- Ballast compartment under the seat shell
- Shoulder Velcro for Solario and SPOT
- Provision for drink system
- Exit in speedbag for urine tube
Based on experience ADVANCE is of the opinion that the choice of an ideal packsack size depends more on the harness than the wing. So our aim is to provide the pilot with a packsack where his equipment can be stowed as compactly and conveniently as possible. Every IMPRESS 3 will be delivered with a matching COMFORTPACK in the correct size. This new, geometrically optimised bag will once again improve carrying comfort, in that its volume can be filled out as effectively as possible.
NOTE: Lime Impress 3 in all sizes + COMFORTPACK not available until April 2012. Customers who purchased Impress 3 without COMFORTPACK can purchase one for $100. COMFORTPACK is not available separately.
