Clothing Suggestions for Skydiving

Skydiving Clothes & Jumpsuits

What to wear Tandem Skydiving Skydiving isn’t a fashion contest. Any type of clothing that you are comfortable in should be fine. Loose fitting clothes will likely allow you to be more comfortable during your skydive. No Limits Skydiving™ will provide jumpsuits that will cover your entire outfit. 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 are prohibited. The shoes must be tight and able to stay on during the 120 mph freefall. 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 or any sort of accessory cannot be worn during the jump. We provide lockers, in case you accidentally bring any of these.

Hair and Helmets For Skydiving

No Limits Skydiving in Virginia We provide helmets for all tandem students. If you have long hair, you should plan on pulling it back or putting it into a ponytail. 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.
