Wings W14 with PDR 176 Can't Post

Can anyone shoot me a picture and their experience of their W14 with a PDR 176 packed up? Ive got a Raven II in mine now and it looks overstuffed, but the PIA canopy comparison chart lists a Raven II pack volume at only 419 and the PDR 176, which sunrise lists as tight, at a pack volume of 447 cubic inches. Something doesn't seem right either with those measurements or my container. I'd appreciate any information

I've a W13 that I had a 176 in. It was very tight and I switched it out once I'd found a 160. It did fit though. I think the W13 is essentially the same size reserve pack tray as the W14.

Ive got a W14 with a Smart 175 in it and it fits perfect. Not too tight, not too loose. Unfortunately, I am not able to upload any photos. In my senior rigger opinion you should be just fine with the 176.

I have packed several PD176s and Smart 175s into both W13s and W14s. No problem with that. However, despite what pack volume charts may say, a 218 sq ft Raven II is larger. The charts are not always accurate for several reasons.

I have packed two W14's with PDR176 and two with Raven1's. I believe RavenII would be noticeably tighter than a PDR176
