Dolphin D6 and 300sqft F-111? Can't Post

Hello all

Does anybody know if a used 300sqft F-111 canopy (Falcon) fits into a Dolphin D6 container? The D6 is specified up to 280sqft...but this would include a new ZP canopy with all the air packed into it...am I right? Not sure, so please share your experiences and opinions.

thanks
Uwe

I packed a dacron lined PD280 and Navigator 260 into a D6. My guess is that a 300ft F111 will fit, but may be a little tight, but definitely not impossible

Dolphin D-7 (and Javelin J-7) is designed for popular student canopies in the 288 square foot range.
This allows for easy packing and quick turn-arounds of student gear.
You probably could pack a 300 square foot main into a D-6, but the question is: "How many times will you WANT to pack it per day?"
