Vector v306 xfire2 119 main and OP126 reserve Can't Post

Hi!
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with a v306 container with xfire2 119 main and OP126 reserve? Too tight? Okay?

I'll bet UPT knows. In fact, I'm willing to bet that UPT has a chart of container/canopy sizes somewhere on their website.

They do, and it says main is standard fitting and op 126 is fullfiting reserve for that container. I still want to ask around if anyone has any hands-on experience.

i have a V308, has op143 which is full fit. standard fit for main is 120, but i had put a 150 in it without problem.

How old is your V308, UPT tweaked the sizing a bit recently. My older 308 takes a PDR143 nicely and a 135 as standard fit.

I used to have that exact combo: V306 with a OP126. You can close it, but it's tight as hell.

If you like jumping with a brick on your back, go ahead and do it.

If you like a comfortable rig on your back, don't.

I have a 306 and OP126 and it's fine on the shoulders.

Its tight with a 109 Xfire in there. Wouldnt bother with a 119. And I have stuffed a Pilot into a Javelin TJNK for 300 jumps.

Do yourself a favour and get an OP113 or a V316. And a 109.

Better yet get a Javelin.
