VIGIL SAVES

YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL

Over 550 lives saved and counting

Your Vigil AAD is designed for one purpose: to help dramatically reduce the risks associated with skydiving.

Each of Vigil’s recorded life saves are more than just numbers, they represent people who we might have otherwise lost.  

 

The purpose of life saving reports is to get clarity on exactly what mistakes were made, details of the accidents that occurred, and how Vigil was in each of these instances the difference between life and death. 

 

These are invaluable lessons to be learned and the numbers simply don't lie.

566 RECORDED SAVES & COUNTING

SKYDIVER KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS ON EXIT

VIGIL MODE: PRO

SAVE #516

I was knocked unconscious on the rear step of a skyvan. Spent the entire skydive in a limp head down free fall. The other jumper was working on some head down and didn't realize my situation until it was too late too assist. I'm sure vigil deployed while I was in a head down or steep track position. If not for my excellent rigger and vigil, I would for 100% sure be dead right now... Thank you
