i've seen people jump out of planes in these "squirrel suits" before...but never base jumping...it looks like the dude is like 10 feet MAX from the clif faces that he's whizzing past....these guys can generate huge amounts of speed too...i know that one guy got somewhere above 200mph wearing one of these...but he jumped from 40k feet+....imagine being in one of those cars on that hill when they flew over at the end of the video....i'd poop myself

look closer at the beginning...they've got chutes...they're BASE chutes though....so they're smaller...

I nearly pooped myself just watching the video.

I always kind of wanted to sumersault while skydiving... Don't think I will take it back up to try the suit, though.

haha I was just watching a program about base jumping, crazy people, must be great to have the "I can fly" sensation. Just hope the parachute will work...

Also I couldn't really imagine myself climbing a mountain for one 2 minute jump :)
