Chances are, if you ask us, the answer will be yes. Jumpsuit repair is a major focus of Desert Skies Parachute Rigging. Zipper replacement, patch repairs, booty repair and sole replacement, gripper repair, replacement and enhancement, snaps etc are just some of the jumpsuit repairs we conduct. 


Alterations are very different from repairs and are taken on a case by case basis. Often, an alteration requires so much time to conduct that pricing becomes prohibitive. Generally speaking, basic alterations are no big deal, but feel free to ask. 

Grommets / Snaps / Fasteners etc

We have complete capability to repair brass and nickel brass grommets found on most container flaps, canopy sliders and other pertinant equipment. SS grommets for container flaps are also within our abilities. 

Snaps, fasteners, just about any other kind of skydiving type application can be repaired by the staff of Deser Skies Parachute Rigging.
