Re: [stayhigh] Tight fitting reserve Pros & Cons

There is also the thickness of the rig. Some manufacturers put in smaller width backpads but increase the thickness of the rigs. Makes for extremelly uncomfortable rigs when packed tightly (brick on your back) and also less room in the plane... Wierd, eh? "Smaller" rig = less room on the plane...

Pick a size of rig that fits the canopies you want either in a "soft" or "normal" fit. "Tight" is "possible, but then you're sacrificing both comfort, and more importantly - safety.
