The jumpsuit fabrics you choose affect the way your suit flies and performs. Your choice of fabric will depend on the type of skydiving you do and the way you want to fly. We've put together this guide to our fabrics to help you choose.
When you're ready to design your custom TonySuit, head over to our innovative online designer where you can view the fabric and color options available for each area of your selected jumpsuit.

Nylon is the fabric we recommend for the front of the Pit Special 4-Way Suit and for our Swoop Suit. This is because nylon is very slick and therefore has little drag through the air compared to other fabrics. You can choose nylon in a wide range of solid colors including gold, silver and flo green.
Cordura is our most hard-wearing fabric, good for doubling the life of booties and knee and butt pads. It also makes booties more responsive. Cordura is also the standard fabric used on the legs of wind tunnel student suits.
Parapac is used in our range of wingsuits. Parapac 210 denier nylon is used for lighter wingsuit flyers. Parapac 420 denier nylon is used for medium to heavy wingsuit flyers. It is used on the Z wing model.
Spandex is a stretchy fabric. We use it in areas of the suit that need to have more give to allow you to move freely as you fly, such as the back of an FS suit, to allow you to arch. It is also used to tighten the suits for a closer fit.
Each of our specialty patterned fabrics has a different design. All of our speciality designs are printed on Ripstop Nylon, a highly durable fabric which is ideal for grips, knees, butt pads or any area of your suit which take a lot of wear.
These days Airspeed averages 800+ jumps and 100+ hours of tunnel time per season, between coaching, training and competing. And trust us, "fixing my jumpsuit" is rarely on our to-do list. My personal favorite feature on the Pit Special is the Mega Booties design. You cannot get more leg power than that!
