* RealLife parachutes can be packed in a surprisingly small volume - the usual rig contains both main and reserve canopy, with the deployment bag being actually smaller than a plastic grocery bag. It is the ''harness'' which is the difficult part: to prevent the harness from slipping away with fatal results, the harness must have leg straps and at last one chest strap. To be comfortable, they should also be wide enough and padded. The harness is the RealityEnsues for this trope, not the canopy itself.

* In ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'' #375, Rick Jones is trapped on an exploding Skrull spaceship. Just when it looks like it's curtains for our favorite KidSidekick, he parachutes to safety. He tells Bruce that he ''always'' wears a parachute [[CrazyPrepared just in case he gets trapped on an exploding Skrull spaceship and needs to jump to safety]].
-->''Bruce'': That's...that's ridiculous.
-->''Rick'': Why? I needed to, didn't I?
-->''Bruce'': Yes, but...skip it.

* Both MickeyMouse and WesternAnimation/BugsBunny are wearing visible packed parachutes as they converse with the 'chuteless gumshoe Eddie Valiant in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. Desperate for anything that'll save him from his death plunge, Valiant pleads with the Toons for a spare. Bugs Bunny supplies one from {{Hammerspace}}, cautioning, "But I don't think you want it." Valiant takes it nonetheless, and Mickey and Bugs deploy their parachutes. {{Subverted|Trope}}, however, because when Valiant pulls the ripcord on his, he finds himself holding a spare tire.

Cnd not just one parachute: he can carry around ''dozens'' of them. This is, however, justified with the usual ''AC'' justification of the gameplay taking place in a virtual reality based on Ezio's memories, so the ''real'' Ezio didn't lug around piles of fabric--he simply had [[CrazyPrepared a parachute prepared before every occasion he actually needed them]].
* Most Battlefield games allow the player in MP mode to just equip a parachute out of nowhere for as many falls as they wish just by pressing the X/A (Playstation/Xbox) button once or twice in mid-air, allowing them to jump the largest heights the map has to offer so long as they release their HammerspaceParachute.

* Despite only having a backpack the size of what a high schooler would carry, Rico in ''VideoGame/JustCause 2'' has an infinite supply of parachutes.
* The [[http://slycooper.wikia.com/wiki/Paraglider Paraglider]] in ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' that first appears in ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'' lets Sly get to new locations with ease. It appears on command without issue despite seemingly being big enough to take up the entire backpack, which should also hold the rest of his equipment.
** Not only that, but the glider actually falls apart after use, meaning that whenever you use the Paraglider, ''[[UpToEleven it's actually a different one each time]]''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'' '''everybody''' has one, which makes sense since the bulk of the action is dogfights over deadly heights or cloud covered volcanic doom. However, everyone wears skintight outfits that have no indication of hiding a parachute. Regardless, villains seem to use this the most.
