181 Raven and a Sabre 2 170 in a Javelin J2 Made for a 150? Can't Post

I found a decent deal for a J2 Javelin DOM 1993 made for a 150. Seller is telling me that 170 is the biggest main that will fit in it. But it already has a Raven 181 reserve. Would a 181 reserve and a 170 main be too much for a container built for a 150 main? Or, if it fits, will I have a tough time packing it (or if packers do it for me, will they hate me)?

Thanks!

I had an older J2 with a raven 181 in it. I put a 170 in it a few times. Tight, but no problem. Give it a try before you buy.

Depends on where you jump. In a humid climate (like Florida), a 170 will likely be a snug fit but not unreasonably tight. In a drier climate (like Arizona or California) it will be unreasonably tight, won't be at all fun to pack, and packers may refuse to pack for you.

It's only a decent deal if:

1. It fits you very well.
2. It fits your canopies well (sized for them, not just close)
3. You are in the market for a 12 year old container.
4. It is very inexpensive.

Don't be in a rush to buy used gear. If you are patient, the right gear will come along. Don't buy the wrong gear just because it is available at an affordable price.
