The XC Bubble rod protector for your paraglider gives all the protection of standard pillows as supplied by brands, but takes up zero pack volume in your harness.
Two-liners and wings with long rods need good care and maintenance should always include wrapping the wing around a protector.
Once you have concertina-folded your wing using an XCertina bag or similar, the protection should be placed a third of the way down the wing from the leading edge.
The inflatable rod protector takes seconds to inflate and deflate – you simply blow into the valve as you would a swimming arm-band.
