I was looking for a chute to use for a base camp and found a website for Denbigh surplus. Google it and look up their chutes. A few ripped panels but 20 inc VAT is nothing to be sniffed at if you ask me.

20 isnt bad. You can pay upwards of 60 for a good one

Why google it? We're allowed to post links to sites like http://www.denbigharmysurplus.co.uk/ as far as I know. Good find Dan.

Perhaps you could soak them in some tent water-proofing stuff? Just a thought

Look out 20.00 may be cheep but its for a badly warn chute with holes look at the pictures on the website. Mine was 70.00 with vat and postage on ebay.

Seems trade only but if enough people were interested then maybe a group buy could be arranged?

This one has them for between 25 to 60 and seems to sell to the general public http://www.surplusplus.co.uk/acatalog/various_parachute.html

And here for 29.99 http://www.fu-kit.com/product.php/381/white-parachute-genuine-french-army-surplus-damaged/45d4aa596c88553ac216216d506792a6
