    Easy to don/doff. Creates nice resistance while running…. but it is very flimsy; ripped twice in first month of use. Got tired of sewing it, so we don’t use it anymore. Will look for something more sturdy.

    Would not buy again.

    This is well worth the price if you are looking for a way to get good resistance in performing speed drills. it is easy to use, works the core, and provides good resistance to help you train.

    Makes training fun, but ineffective if you really want to run faster…, August 17, 2012

    This review is from: SKLZ Speed Resistance Training Parachute (Sports)

    Parachute training is a good way to motivate kids and younger athletes to work out, but serious athletes don’t use it, and for good reason.

    Firstly, the resistance is variable and unpredictable. The amount of wind as well as the angle at which the wind is blowing cannot be controlled, so you have no way of knowing how much resistance you are getting in a single repeat, much less keeping it consistent from repeat to repeat. Even within a run, the amount of resistance can increase or decrease if the wind suddenly changes.

    Secondly, the amount of resistance provided by speed training parachutes may be too great. You should only add resistance up to the level at which you can maintain your normal sprinting form for this type of training to be effective. For most people this is about 10% of your body weight. You never see people with parachutes running naturally and this is part of the reason why.

    If you want to add resistance to your sprints, I would use a weighted sled instead. This way you can better control how much resistance you are working against.
