What To Wear Skydiving

Skydiving Clothes & Jumpsuits

Skydiving isn’t a fashion contest. Any clothes that you are comfortable in should be fine. Loose fitting clothes will likely allow you to be more comfortable during your skydive. We provide jumpsuits that cover your clothes. For the ladies, we don’t recommend dresses or skirts. Most people wear shorts and a t-shirt in the warmer months. On cooler days, jeans and a sweatshirt will help keep you warm. If it’s cold, we’ll provide gloves.

Shoes For Skydiving

Sneakers or similar soft soled shoes work best. Sandals, high-heels, flip-flops and other shoes that can easily come off can’t be worn. The shoes must be tight and able to stay on when freefalling at 120 MPH. Shoes or boots with hooks are also not permitted.

Jewelry When Skydiving

It’s best to leave jewelry at home. It could easily be lost during the skydive. If you are wearing jewelry, it’s best to give it to a friend or family member for the jump. Watches cannot be worn during the jump.

Hair and Helmets For Skydiving

We provide helmets for all tandem students. If you have long hair, you should plan on pulling it back or putting it into a pony tail. Some people prefer to tuck their long hair inside their helmets.

Skydiving With Glasses

We provide goggles for all students. The goggles protect your eyes from the wind. If you wear prescription glasses, you can either jump without your glasses, or put our goggles over your glasses. If wear contacts, be sure to tell your instructor so they can be sure the goggles are tight against your face.
