LIGHTWEIGHT. LOW PROFILE.

HIGH PERFORMANCE.

THE TL IS OUR LIGHTWEIGHT, LOW-PROFILE
SLIGHTLY ELONGATED CONTAINER.

While the TL can safely be used as an all­-around rig, many of its design elements
will appeal to wingsuiters, trackers, and terminal slider­-up jumpers.

The Apex TL has been a fixture at exit points around the world since 2009. Due to its popularity and proven track record we stayed true to the original platform while reducing weight and modernizing the container’s construction. The new TL comes standard with lightweight exterior fabric and a standard integrated riser system. The TL offers two closing methods, described below. Dual through­ loops are still available as an option, but standard containers come with traditional top/bottom flap closing loops and a single top through­ loop.

CONTAINER

FEATURES

Every TL is handcrafted from start to finish in our Southern California facility. Each unit undergoes two thorough independent quality control inspections. First the independent container components are inspected (e.g. harness, back pad, leg pads, cover flaps, etc.). The second inspection is conducted after all components have been merged into a complete container.

TRADITIONAL CLOSING OPTION

The TL is one of the most versatile containers on the market with two different closing methods. Many jumpers prefer to utilize traditional top & bottom closing loops and the TL maintains this functionality. Converting between closing styles is easy to perform in the field quickly and without tools.

THROUGH LOOP CLOSING OPTION

The TL is one of the most versatile containers on the market with two different closing methods. Jumpers who value a sleek, low­-profile rig will love using the top internal “through loop” to further compress the pack job. Converting between closing styles is easy to perform in the field quickly and without tools.

PIN PROTECTOR FLAP INSERT

Terminal jumpers, trackers, and wingsuit jumpers will appreciate the stiffener insert we include with every container. The stiffener can be installed quickly to provide additional security to the pin protector flap for high airspeed flights. A hidden pocket is built into the container to store the insert when not in use.

ADAPTABLE PIN PROTECTOR FLAP

The pin protector flap was designed to operate unhindered on all jumps. There is no need to open the pin protector flap for any freefall jump however, extra-­cautious static-­line jumpers will appreciate the option to cleanly tuck the flap entirely out of sight. No more floppy open pin protector flaps on exit!

REMOVABLE D30 BACK PROTECTION

Apex was the first to build spine protection into a container system. The readily available D30 pad has proven to be an effective method of protection and Apex builds an independent pocket (separate from the stash bag pocket) to accommodate these pads as part of the standard container package. The D30 insert can be removed and installed easily on unpacked containers.

BOTTOMLESS CORNERS

They improve canopy extraction during wingsuit, tracking, and head low deployments. As far as we’re concerned, every container should have them so they are now standard on all TL containers.

LOW PROFILE, LIGHT WEIGHT

The TL was designed to be lightweight and low profile. Especially when paired with our UltraLite canopies, no other complete system can match the low weight and low volume of the Apex TL.

SADDLEBAGS

Saddlebags have been a popular option on our rigs for years. Built into the leg pads they are optimal for jumping down keys, water bottles, cell phones, and anything else you can fit into them! When zipped into the Saddlebags, personal items can confidently be jumped without impacting movement or safety.

MAGNET BRIDLE

Do you ever jump handheld? If so, the MAG Bridle is an ideal option for you. With magnets built into the right shoulder of the rig and bridle you’ll always be confident in your bridle security on handheld jumps. Lefties, we love you too! So if you’d prefer a left­handed MAG setup give us a call and we’ll take care of you.

ELONGATED CONTAINER LENGTH

Terminal jumpers, trackers, and wingsuiters frequently prefer a slightly elongated container to both reduce the profile of the pack job and allow for an easier pull from their flight position. The TL offers a container length that is long enough to accommodate slider-­up jumpers, while not being so long as to make it unsafe for low jumps and aerials.

INTEGRATED RISERS

While 3 ring cutaway systems serve a valuable purpose for many BASE jumpers, modern trends have shown a tremendous growth in the popularity of integrated riser systems. Their light weight, low bulk, added strength and simplicity have led to them being the most popular riser selection. In light of this trend, and because we feel that integrated risers are a superior option for most jumpers, we have made them standard on all of our containers.

The 3 ring system will continue to be available on all containers for jumpers who prefer them. 3 ring risers come at an additional cost due to the added complexity of the system, and additional materials (hardware, cable housing, cutaway handle, etc.). All Apex 3 ring systems incorporate the Integrity Riser System with rear-facing 3 rings. This system is more durable against wear and stronger than traditional forward-facing riser systems.

INTEGRITY 3-RING RISERS (Optional)

Apex BASE container systems can be fitted with our Integrity 3-Ring Riser system. Integrity 3-ring systems are rear-facing and provide several benefits over forward-facing 3-ring systems:

  1. Strength: Forward facing 3-ring systems require that a hole be punched through the riser to facilitate the white (Type IIA) loop. Punching a hole in any webbing reduces strength and longevity.
  2. Durability: Forward facing riser systems expose the white (Type IIA) loop to damage during packing. Rear facing systems protect this fragile component from wear during packing and use.

Due to the added components (hardware, cutaway cables, housing) and complexity of the 3-ring system it is available as an option on all Apex BASE containers.
