After equipping a stack of 5 parachutes by dragging them over after production, I make one jump, successfully using the parachute, and upon checking my inventory all 5 are gone, none are shown on my body or inventory, and the icon in the lower left corner is gone as well.

If you open your inventory before touching down after a parachute jump, you can watch them quickly disappear from your equipped slot.

You can unequip them before touching the ground and not spend any, which maybe counters this bug a bit :-)

On the other hand, player 2 appears to never consume parachutes, and never needs to press spacebar to activate them.  You basically use them like in Zelda Breath of the Wild - freely, all the time.  It's wonderful.
I'm going to be a little upset if this gets "fixed".

Well, it is nice and all that you made all the work to create this gif (including recording), but (just as a suggestion) don't you also think it would have been better if you would have used a size /resolution on which someone actually can see what is going on?

So far, if your chute doesn't open and you hit the space bar a few times, it consumes them. Almost as if the opening mechanic isn't visual, and you can't tell that it's already engaged, but the game uses them up.

I know this is late, but I have discovered if you equip 5 chutes, it will USE 5 chutes, but if you split the stack and only equip 1 and leave the rest in your inventory they will be safe.

I'm not longer able to reproduce this in Early Access. Seems fixed.
