Re: [NightJumper] Does canopy COLOR influence/increase pack volume?

Makes me think of what I heard about stripping the paint off of a 182. Takes off about 200lbs doesn't it? Makes sense that a canopy that was not dyed would pack up smaller than one that was.

I do remember that the rigger I started my training with way back when told me he noticed white canopies pack up a little smaller than dyed ones.
