Or before you got Kirk's reply, you could have tried http://www.sunpath.com

Click on buy an odyssey, then on container sizing chart.
Not to hard to find, but now you have your choice of two! Wink

The letters such as RSK, TJN...... they mean what size canopies. You can have a look at the chart someone else attached.


The other letter that might come into play is the one before the main lift web length. A14, or C17 for examples.

The first letter, A, B, C, or D (ithink it goes to D) is the yoke size, or how wide the rug is going to fit over your shoulders with A being the smallest. The number is the MLW length.

If you're looking for the older container sizes (like TJN versus TJNK), I haven't found those on SunPath's website. I suppose I could assume the old sizes are the same as the new sizes which have the K, but it'd be nice to know for sure.

you must not have looked hard enough...

yes, the volumes are the same between K and pre-K series, but the shape has changed a little.
