    Didn't know moths would eat that sort of thing.
    Why don't you unwrap it? Can't tell anything about it when it's wrapped in plastik.
    What vintage is it? What markinbgs on it?
    OH and by the way - that is called a Reserve Chute to those of us who clip one on our harness and fall out of airplanes.

    And if your main does not deploy, you have the rest of your life to deploy your reserve.
