Javelin J4 Reserve Questions Can't Post

Ok, so this is probably a newbie question.
I have a J4, into which my rigger says that a Tempo 210 won't fit and that it would cause damage to the container. However, the suggested reserves for that rig are PD176-RavenII. The Raven II is a 218. How does this make sense? What am I missing?

Different manufacturers use different measuring methods.

While getting a second opinion is your prerogative, keep in mind it is your riggers prerogative to say he won't pack it. Wink

Different companies measure differently and even use different materials to build their canopies.

That said - in my experience Tempo's tend to pack up a little on the smaller side when compared with some other manufacturers reserves.
