After more than a year of testing, the engineers at Sun Path Products Inc, are proud to release the Javelin Odyssey harness & container. In keeping with the tried, tested, and proven reliability of the world-famous Javelin, the Javelin Odyssey takes comfort, strength, performance, and fashion, to new heights.
Since it’s release at the PIA Symposium in 2001, we continue to re-design and research new developments to make the Odyssey even more comfortable and freefly friendly! The latest release of the Javelin Odyssey being the K-Series!
The Javelin Odyssey is certified under the FAA TSO Category C 23 (d), meaning that it has been drop tested to weights in excess of 300 lbs at high speed. The Javelin Odyssey features secure riser covers, eliminating any exposure of the main or reserve risers, but not hindering the deployment of your canopy. Features such as ‘anti-twist’ technology main risers, incorporating plastic riser tube inserts. The tubes are of a composition that meets, or exceeds, the test conditions required by the FAA TSO. The advantage of plastic tubes is that they can be “crushed” in a car door/trunk, and continue to function. The Javelin Odyssey also features the Oetiker clamps, which clamp the release and reserve housings in place, thus eliminating the need for hand tacks. The Javelin Odyssey also features the new ‘D style legpads’ which offer comfort padding behind the hip ring. This style also prevents the leg-pad from sliding down your leg during FreeFly maneuvers.
The Javelin Odyssey molds to your body like no other rig can with its state of the art harness construction incorporating ‘cut-in laterals’. This feature of the Javelin Odyssey allows for the lateral strap to contour around the lower back, keeping the container snug against the jumper. You and your Javelin Odyssey move as one. The Javelin Odyssey features a new quilted-backpad giving your unsurpassed comfort in the sky, waiting for your load or while sitting in the plane.
The Javelin Odyssey also features split leg straps as standard. By splitting the webbing, and making the leg strap wider, the weight of the suspended jumper is dispersed through a larger area, providing exceptional comfort under canopy.
The Javelin Odyssey is available in new space-age durable fashion fabrics, previously unavailable. These new “space-age” fabrics include a colorful houndstooth and our Diamondback fabric. See your dealer for fabric samples or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you some!
The Javelin Odyssey offers exceptional safety, performance, comfort, and fashion, from a company that has proven itself an industry leader in skydiving harness & container manufacturing over the last decade.
The Javelin Odyssey is available in new “space-age,” durable fashion fabrics, previously unavailable to the general public. The new fabrics have been tested for over a year!
These are just a few adjectives to describe the country’s hottest selling skydiving container, Sun Path’s Javelin. In addition to its clean lines and good looks, the container is something more important: functional and dependable.
In keeping up with the changing pace of skydiving, the engineers at Sun Path have designed some new features to the Javelin. For added security during hi-speed maneuvers, the reserve flap is now tucked into the main mid flaps. You can be assured your container won’t open until you want it to. A bridle cover has been added to tuck away the exposed bridle which is routed from the BOC to the main closing pin. Additional stiffeners have been added to the no-velcro riser flaps to keep risers tucked away securely until deployment. These are just a few of the modifications made to the Javelin, the most comfortable and dependable harness/container system.
Now let’s talk about comfort. One of the Javelin’s most popular options is the ring harness. Hip rings and chest rings can be built into the articulated harness for incredible flexibility and freedom of movement. Whether you’re freeflying, sit flying, belly flying, or just “clowning around” with friends, jump the Javelin for all your skydiving needs.
All Javelins are shipped CYPRES ready and come equipped with an RSL. Hard cable housings are also standard. Choose from a hard or soft reserve pillow, depending on your skydiving preferences. All you’ve got to choose are the colors… and we can help with that too. Check out our exclusive on-line coloring program to help you visualize your new container. Sun Path can also provide you with canopies and a CYPRES; we can ship your rig ready to jump.
There are a lot of containers resembling the Javelin coming onto the skydiving scene. It’s no wonder: imitation is a form of flattery. Go with the name you can trust The Javelin has been tried and tested and proven to perform. Its comfort is matched by none.

The Accuracy Javelin was designed based on input from some of the world’s most accomplished accuracy competitors. The dynamic main and reserve sizing allows for a main parachute suitable for competition accuracy and a reserve parachute more suitable for the jumpers body size. The rig is SkyHook compatible and is available with most of the same options as the Javelin Odyssey.
Sun Path consulted with some of the worlds top competitors and foremost authorities in the discipline and they all agreed on one thing. You have to be sitting up straight in the harness on approach. The main ring placement on the Accuracy Javelin allows the jumper to sit up straight in the harness and focus on a vertical approach to the target, resulting in more dead centers.
