In 1994, United Parachute Technologies unveiled the Vector 3 Harness/Container system — it was the first FreeFly rig on the market, and that new design incorporated concepts that originated through years of research and development; and, it was introduced to meet the demands of modern SkyFlying.
In 1999, using the latest technology and the knowledge United Parachute Technologies gained in building the Vector 3, a container system aimed towards the growing trend of smaller canopies was designed — the Micron, and it is the most technically advanced harness and container system in the world. United Parachute
Technologies created the Micron by hiring a dedicated team of engineers — this was something that never seen before in the arena of sport skydiving. Those engineers, who happened to be world-class competitive skydivers, reviewed United Parachute Technologies' systems designs and applied sound engineering practices to them.
In doing this, the engineers were able to improve the function of the Vector 3 riser covers, pin protection, comfort and the operation of the three-ring release system.
The Micron container incorporates an entirely velcro-less design and is shorter and narrower than the Vector 3 container. The main pin flap's closing, from the bottom up, protects the pin better, particularly while moving around in the aircraft and during freestyle maneuvers. The Uni-Body construction, while providing a smoother contour profile, also creates a pocketed corner, which safely routes the main bridle to the bottom of the container. This feature is built into the reserve container and protects it during unstable openings. No matter which main pilot chute location you choose, the bridle will be safely hidden and snag-proof. The ergonomically designed harness curves over your shoulders nicely. It provides greater comfort and fits narrow shoulders well. The harness is also stronger as a result of improved confluence construction. The Micron has an overall cleaner look, and a more protective design with a tailored and comfortable fit.
