Atom 00, tempo 150, diablo/stiletto 150
Hi, Searched but didn't find much infos about what size main canopy and reserve I can get in a PDF Atom 00 from '96. I have a tempo 150 from '96 reserve that i would like to put in. I heard that tempo packs really small, but is 150 ok for the atom, also putting there an AAD? Also i'm curently jumping a Diablo 150 that in the near future i would like to change it with a Stiletto 150. Would both of theese fit in with the tempo? Did someone tried this before, and what would be packing volume for the atom, tempo and the diablo? Thanks,

A diablo packs quite big, due to the fabric used.
A atom 00 should have a 115 or 128 sqft reserve. It is not made for bigger, and some riggers here will not pack them with a mayday or other 150ish reserve in it, and rightly so IMO.
I packed a spectre 150 in mine, it was TIGHT. A merit 170 worked better, but that was a ragged old hybrid canopy. A stiletto 150 might work, if it is an old one and you're good at packing and you don't overstuff the reserve.
