Pack Volume Can't Post

Can someone tell me the pack volume of a Sabre 150?
Also, the Icarus website shows the Crossfire 139 as 386 cu. in. Is that accurate?

Thanks,

Missy

Thanks! I just wanted to make sure they were comparable. I weigh in at about 240 w/gear, so I don't really want to have to jump a 129 all the time. But, I also don't want to buy a new container!

Hint, only use canopy volume figures published by container manufacturers. They are the ones who "eat it" if a canopy does not fit. Numbers published by canopy manufacturers are derived from a variety of measuring methods and rarely make sense to riggers in the field!
