Ron I've got the "grappling hook" that caught the wire or rope. Got it from a pilot that caught a few of these lines in his day!
Very Cool Ronnie
I had one of the suits and it was mint.Very light weight.Basically a rubberized nylon (?) and very thin material.Basically just covered the extraction harness.
Had a cousin who was familiar with both the Fulton System and STABO.

Very cool Ron! Nice score. I'm in Danbury a couple times a month, what a small world
I talked to a guy once who did a bit of research on these and found the place where they manufactured these.It was a long time ago so not sure if the place is still there or not.

If you have ever seen the movie THE GREEN BERETS you have an idea of what this is.Heck of a ride to get airborne.
Also seen at the end of Doctor No.
