i am a skydiver too. Would you buy a Chinese knockoff of a Javelin, PD reserve or Cypres ?
Would you jump North Korean gear ? (It exists)
As for parachutes I do not really care if it is Chinese or whatever. As long as it flies ok. There are strict regulations in this market. My reserve and rig are French, but I would never buy a French car.
As for Cypres, once when I was in the us, one DZ used the American knockoff. It had almost killed people so this DZ told tandem master to make sure it was turned off. Law said an AAD must be installed but nothing about it being turned on. The Protrack knockoffs also had trouble in the beginning. But it does not mean that only the 2 best products has the market for itself. Even in life saving devices there is competition, and even bad American knockoffs.
Don't think things are necessarily better when created in the U.S. In many countries Italian stuff is considered good. In Northern Europe it is considered quite bad.
