to delay the chute deployment! If you weren't careful, it would become
ballistic on the way down :-(.
The "*** bands" were more on the order of surgical tubing, like that used
in sling shots.
It was made by Quercetti (sp?), an Italian company.
I don't remember ever seeing anything about a glider which could be attached.
