Wait! It's there for a reason....

There's already a number of happy Phoenix Fly V3 customers in the sky, but one of the many new design features of the suit is leaving a few people scratching their noodles.

The feature in question is a strip of material that's stitched to the side of the leg pouch on the rear of the suit.

This seemingly random piece of nylon actually serves a really important purpose and is there to prevent damage to the stitching on the wing, which can sometimes be caused by the velcro after deployment. 

Phoenix Fly say that if it really annoys you, or you don't plan to use the leg pouch, it can be removed with a hot knife. Just be careful how you do it...
