How durable would you need be to no-sell a free fall from 30k feet?

How impressive it and how durable would you need to be? Presumably your legs would need to withstand all the kinetic energy built up? I am guessing you'd need to be over Spider-Man a level to pull it off?

@gxrevs06: It depends how heavy you are. Here's a video.

The maximum velocity in said atmosphere is also something to keep in mind in places that aren't explicitly Earth.

If you're on Earth and only as heavy as an ordinary human, Wall-level durability should be more then enough to let you survive, though not enough to entirely no-sell it.

@gxrevs06: Doesn't matter how high you fell from. What matters is the velocity you had before you came into contact with the ground. It takes about 450 meters of height for you to reach terminal velocity, and for a typical human that would mean attaining a speed of around 53 m/s.

Like barely superhuman, there’s a thing called terminal velocity. Regular humans have actually survived falling from airplanes and such.
