I'm about 5'7" and weight a little bit more than you do, and found that a C-17 fit me great. I'm thinking the MLW might be a little on the short side for you.

As someone said, give the manufacturer a call (813 782 9242), give them your measurements, and they'll be able to tell you if it should fit.

If possible, try it on to see if it'll work. If you can't do that, see if someone at your DZ has one with the same harness size and try that one on if they'll let ya. If you end up buying something that doesn't fit right, it's not a great deal. Wink

I didn't notice the "nj" container size mentioned in your first post. Sunpath lists that container size for a 120 and 120 reserve.

With your jump numbers and exit weight, if you jump those canopies (loaded at 1.6) you will die.

Finish AFF, then worry about gear.

I'm used to all of the DZ's teaching AFF down here. In that case, finish you're training then worry about gear.

Cool

Where are trying to buy this rig from?

It is not appropriate for you, so it's not a good deal at all.

First you need to get through your student progression and see how your canopy flight is going. Then determine which size parachutes you need. We can take a look at your measurements to see what size harness you need for your container.

Then you can go shopping to see what great deals you can find.

Maybe we can combine this with the death game threadWink

All kidding aside Ryan.It will be a while before you will need a container of that size.

It's several years too early. By the time you're ready to jump it, you'll want custom-fitted gear in your own colours. Put the money in a bank account and the interest you'll make in the meantime will be of more use.

How do you even know its a good deal money wise with 2 jumps and not enough knowledge to realize how long it will take to downsize to even use it?

Dude there will always be good deals...

buy a container that fits you now...and spend that "good deal" money on jumping your ass off.

figure this good deal on an nj with reserve and say a stilletto would be like 1400-1500 thats like 70-75 jumps man...do the jumps man that way you dont get all horny to jump your good deal rig and then break yourself and wind up not jumping man...

Crazy

I know of 1 or 2 DZs in Canadia that offer PFF (the CSPA version of AFF). Static line, now thats pretty rare in Canada.. You sure you dont mean IAD and Standard progression?

That being said, there is nothing wrong with IADs and standard progression, but, you may want to look at the other options at other DZs close to Toronto.


EDIT: and yeah, take your time on the rig. Its not a great deal for one very good reason: its not appropriate at all for you.
