The parachutes are about 38", (96.4cm), x 27", (68.6cm), eight panel, white silk or cotton construction pilot parachute with a four piece steel rod frame with machine stitched seams for the rods. The four steel frame rods are each housed in a tunnel looped, compartment to secure them in the proper position. Some of the tunnel loop compartments might have some small tears to the end from rust from the rods due to storage. The extended guide cords are secured to the outer edges of each of the eight, triangular panels and the extended ends are all secured together at the bottom with a closed attachment loop, to secure the pilot chute to the actual parachute. The seams of each panel have a machine stitched, narrow, dual-ply, reinforcement panel to the bottom. The pilot chutes are in overall good condition with light to moderate age and a couple of small rust colored stains. Seldom encountered, essential parachute deployment item. Most have some type of marking, but some do not have any markings.
