Advance PROGRESS 3 - Unique Versatility

PROGRESS 3 - Unique Versatility

The PROGRESS 3 offers great versatility in a compact shape. Whether for travel, thermal flying, short Hike and Flys, Freestyle manoeuvres or for training, PROGRESS 3 pilots are best equipped for all their exploits. The practical reversible harness has an Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector which provides comprehensive protection at all times. 3D development technology guarantees the highest level of flying and carrying comfort, and is also responsible for the clean outlines.

As versatile as you

A variety of uses. The PROGRESS 3 is a fully-functioning paraglider harness and rucksack. Its low weight (from 3.3 kg) and compact rucksack design make it ideal for everyone who prefers their paragliding equipment to pack up small, without compromising their comfort or protection.

Advance PROGRESS 3 - Versatile, Comfortable & Safe

Full protection

Safety from the start. The PROGRESS 3 has an Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector. Its foam-ribbed inner structure takes up its shape and fills with air within 60 seconds of the rucksack turning into a harness. This is how the PROGRESS 3 provides full protection before takeoff.

Comfortable – both flying and carrying

Double the comfort. The ergonomically-shaped PROGRESS 3 seat surface automatically takes up the pilot’s body shape in flight, substantial Legpads and ingenious lower back support also contribute to very comfortable hold. As a rucksack, well-fitting shoulder straps and a breathable mesh back section also provide maximal carrying comfort.

Technology & Features

Enhanced and lengthened Legpads

Enhanced and lengthened Legpads

Thanks to modern 3D methods of harness development the no-seatboard PROGRESS 3 fits the pilot’s body perfectly in flight. Enhanced and lengthened Legpads, and individually adjustable lower back support guarantee maximum flying comfort. Legpad effectiveness and sophisticated harness geometry also give the reversible harness precise weightshift response. PROGRESS 3 comfort begins on the ground: the Legpads allow maximum freedom of movement for takeoff and landing.

Modern Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector

Modern Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector

The Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector automatically fills with air when the rucksack is reversed into a harness, and under normal circumstances is ready to function after about 60 seconds. For maintenance it can be taken out of its own compartment under the seat shell. For maximum lifespan the protector should not be left compressed for extended periods, and never stored when wet.

Edelrid FORAS carabiner

Edelrid FORAS carabiner

For the first time for a PROGRESS the ­PROGRESS 3 has Edelrid FORAS carabiners and anti-twist carabiner securings. The 51 gram light paraglider carabiners have a breaking strain of 23 kN and were developed at the initiative and in coordination with ADVANCE, specially for narrow webbing up to 25 mm wide. What’s special? The FORAS opens to the side! This gives the Twistlock alu carabiner a wide opening space which makes it much easier to clip to paraglider risers.

Easy Connect System

Easy Connect System

The Easy Connect System makes clipping an ADVANCE paraglider to the harness quite straightforward. Make sure that the red and blue lines on the PROGRESS 3 support loops agree with the red and blue lines on the paraglider risers. Carabiner locators make sure that the FORAS carabiners remain in place in the harness support loops.

Reserve in the protector

Reserve in the protector

For the PROGRESS 3 the reserve compartment is integral with the Protector. The reserve is now stowed under the pilot’s seat, no longer behind the small of the back as for the PROGRESS 2.

Included Carbon Speedbar

Included Carbon Speedbar

The PROGRESS 3 will be delivered with a carbon speedbar. The harness speed system has easy-running Ronstan ball-bearing pulleys and comes ready-mounted.

Optional Footrest incl. corresponding speedbar

Optional foot stirrup

A luxury foot stirrup is available as an option for PROGRESS 3. This component is included in the certification and has a speedbar locator.

PROGRESS 3 harness reviews

The Progress 3 offers more comfort and protection than its predecessor... at a similar weight and level of robustness. It is an incredibly well-designed system that minimises your total kit weight while compromising very little on the protection and comfort. It is precisely manufactured with sturdy materials and meticulous attention to detail. It makes a great choice for beginners and for regular pilots who want to enjoy hike-and-fly outings for cross country where exploring is more important than glide performance. It is also a good option for tandem pilots who want their passenger to help carry some of the load for exploring distant peaks or sharing volbiv adventures.
