Burn time on the fuel was less than 2 minutes... that's the problem with a jet pack.. the tank is too small... and there's no way to land

Very very nifty.

Yeah, guess we'll have to wait for Tony Stark to create the miniature arc reactor to power one of those things...

Doesn't our military have something similar?

As I'm watching I was thinking 'how's he gonna land?' and then 'the moments after the parawing deploys is mighty awkward'

Gotta love that free fall until the rockets kick-in
