Durable and functional!
Michael DeFinis
If you want to add resistance to your sprints, I would use a weighted sled instead.

Either she wasn't fast enough to make it work or you need to run into a wind.

The large size of this parachute makes it tough to get it all the way in the air. But there's a solution: run faster. That's the point of these things- you need to get up to x speed before the thing will go airborne, and then it provides resistance while you continue to do that.

So this parachute is a step up, and is probably not a good size for a beginner. I stepped up from a smaller one, and I'm still getting used to it, but it's a great challenge and it's strengthening my running.

No complaints so far.

My husband is a coach and I ordered this chute for him and his athletes. He likes the wind resistance it provides, and the quality material that it is made of. He also says it is strong. It does what it is advertised to do. Great product!

Both of my sons love these. They both used them to speed train for track and field. They both got faster each week. I recommend you buy this item... haley

The item was purchased for my 12 year old son who plays most sports and he is pleased with the training and the product seems to be durable enough to handle the activity.

I bought this so my baseball fanatic kids could do some speed drills. You're supposed to run in short bursts but it was hard to get the parachute to catch enough air to make a difference before the end of their sprint. I tried it myself and couldn't feel much of a difference. Maybe I expected too much or just aren't doing it right.

I bought this for my 16 year old grandsons to train for football. Unfortunately,their complaint was it could not catch the wind to give proper resistant.
