Guess what? It’s chilly up at altitude – significantly colder than it is on the ground, that is. You might be surprised to know that you shouldn’t solve it like a snow day. The best way forward is not a big, puffy winter coat. The solution is much sleeker (and potentially a lot more stylish): thin layers!
Jewelry is also a big ol’ no-no – but glasses fit nicely under our goggles, so you don’t need to worry about those. (We want you to be able to see the splendor of the Garden Route from altitude, y’know!)
Feel better prepared to book your first tandem skydive? You’re welcome! We know that this isn’t rocket science, but it’s not, like, totally obvious, either. If you take those simple suggestions, you’ll have a comfy jump no matter what the weather — and you’ll be accessorizing your outfit with the brightest smile you’ve ever worn!
