I found a rig I liked online... I asked the buyer what the size of the container/harness was so I could look it up on mirage's site to see if it would fit me ok... he didn't know what I was talking about when I asked about the size. I know there are types of abbreviations that refer to size of harness and what not, but I can't find them anywhere on mirage's site.... can anyone give me examples of harness/container sizes??? Isn't it a letter and a number or something like that??
The letter/number combo, e.g. M5, is the "container" size which determines what size canopies will fit.
The "harness" size is on a tag behind the ring cover and will say something like 16.5 17.5 std. That is what determines whether or not a rig will fit your body. Ask the seller what the size on the tag is and then ask a rigger or gear dealer to measure you and see if you are close to fitting it.
I am not sure about how good Mirages records are, but you could probibly send them the SN of the rig, and they should be able to give you the measurements that the original purchaser made when ordering the rig. Then all you need to do is compaire your measurements to those, and if all is good you got it.
