Fun Fact of the Day: Unlike most harness-based activities, like rappelling and parachuting, the focus isn’t on a series of pinchy straps and clips around your legs and midsection. Modern paragliding harnesses connect you to something akin to a lounge chair, in which your reserve parachute and other goodies are stored, and some of them even feature lumbar support. After you leap from the precipice of choice and the glider inflates, you simply slide the “chair” under your bum, and ride your flying barcalounger wherever the wind takes you.
