Re: [potatoman] Tight fitting reserve Pros & Cons

In reply to:
As the topic.

I am getting new gear, but would prefer the reserve to be a bit bigger than the main. From the manufacturer, they say the bigger reserve will fit, but fairly tight fit.

So buy a rig from a different manufacturer that's willing to build containers for safe sized reserves and fun sized mains.

Sunrise has several small main + safe reserve combinations and IIRC were the ones who told me they'd build anything I wanted but couldn't guarantee it would look good, Mirage has a couple, Jump Shack will build you anything you want, and Fliteline used to build Reflexes with big differences (ex: R300 150 reserve, 100 main).

If your done down-sizing (or will want to jump cross-braced canopies if you do) you might consider a main container one size bigger which will also increase your reserve container size options (unless the main closing loop is on one of the flaps instead of the main/reserve container wall - the flap arrangement is less tolerant of size variations). Rigs are more comfortable when not packed-up brick hard.
