Gary Connery joined world-renowned fellow wingsuit and base jumpers Brett Kistler and Jamie Flynn on the Eiger in Switzerland. Suited up in G-Form’s extreme protective compression gear, the team captured some spectacular footage and breathtaking views, while flying in wingsuits at well over 100 mph.
Equipped to take video with iPhones protected by G-Form cases, the wingsuit trio spontaneously decided to test the technology in G-Form’s typical extreme fashion by dropping one of the iPhones from more than 1000 feet. The iPhone records the entire free fall and subsequent ground-impact. The phone is recovered by Connery after his return to the ground and is completely undamaged in its G-Form case without even a glitch in the video.
