Pod harness safety
It seems the DHV are now addressing the issues of paragliding pod harnesses with dodgey reserve systems, back protectors, etc. and their inappropriate use by recreational pilots.
Their report is at http://www.dhv.de/web/en/safety/articles-statistics/pod-harness-test
Reserves and back protectors are just the glaring problems with some of these harnesses. There are numerous other areas in which some of these types are found wanting and I expect the DHV will get on the case in due course.
The taking off with the leg straps undone problem can only truly be solved when everyone does a proper pre-flight check before every launch.
