    Help keep military cargo parachutes out of landfills by “repurposing” them as large scale tents or domes.

    These big 100’ diameter (7,850 Sq Ft) military cargo parachutes are made of rip-stop nylon parachute cloth. Perfect for large scale tents, awnings, or domes to gather under. You can also use it as a light weight tarp, make it into a reusable bag, a tear-proof sail for your sail boat, or a hammock for those lazy summer days.

    Possible “Repurposes”:

    - Tent

    - Dome

    - Large scale circular tarp

    - Make-shift sail

    - Light weight tote bags

    - Make-shift light weight hammock

    - Large scale awnings

    NOTE: While we call this a repurposed parachute, others may call it a reclaimed parachute. Funny, we’ve also heard it being called a recycled parachute. Then there are those who refer to it as a scrap parachute, seconded parachute, junk parachute …or maybe even a salvaged parachute! Remember, whatever “green” or sustainable phrase you want to use regarding parachutes we’ve got it.

    I'll bet they don't consider Alaska as part of the "continental" US for shipping.

    Id bet you'd need one of those 100 footers to drag that jet boat you sent me the link to down in Idaho off a bar.
