In operation the frame is placed on the wearer's shoulders with the opening 2 engaging the neck, and the crossing of the straps on the back. The free ends of the straps are then brought upwardly under the arms and to the opposite shoulder and into engagement with the buckles, the belt being buckled around the waist of the wearer. The wearer now engages the loops 8 with his hands and is prepared to leap, the air imprisoned beneath the fabric material serving to up-hold the wearer and break the force of his fall.
