Best rig for V4 Wingsuit Can't Post

 
Hi guys, quick question:

To all experienced wingsuit flyers out there, what is the best rig combination that would go with a vampire 4 by pheonix-fly? Im speaking about container, main and reserve. What's the critical point here if im about to order all new...

Thanks for your time, appreciate it

Yako

any modern container that would hold a Flik Ultralite 225 (freepacked packs around a 135-150) and a PD optimum 126 would be my choice for a wingsuit rig.

never flew a V4 (fly V2).

what about V4 think there is something unique about it different from other larger wingsuits???

Any modern rig will work well with the suit. I have a Vector V3 container and absolutely love it. This I match with a PD Storm and a PD Optimum reserve, both of which are excellent canopies.

One that deploys the skydiving canopy you fly with? Really, your rig is going to LONG outlast several wingsuits up to the V9. Ive flown my 1993 Javelin with everything from a classic to apache with every version of the vampire included without any problem.

hjumper33,

thank you, good to know...

i could actually just use my current rig aswell, right?

vector 3 + jvx99

my only fear is that the jvx99 might be too aggressive to land while wearing a wingsuit...

thanks
yako

Yah JVX might be a bit aggressive, but the alternative is pick yourself up a nice sabre I 107-120 which will probably fit about the same pack volume. Awesome wingsuit canopies which are pretty calm in twists, and super cheap to pick up.
