Speed 2000 170 in Icon I4 Can't Post

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick question: Will a paratech speed 2000 170 fit into an Icon i4?
While it is well within pack size in terms of the published cubic inches (307 cu.in to fit into 294-346 cu.in), I am somewhat sceptical of this. Do they really pack down that much smaller?
I was hoping to fit an optimum 160 in there, but they are hard to get hold of second hand, and have recently been offered the speed 2000.

Has anybody got any experience of this combination? Failing that does anybody have any knowledge of the pack size of the speed 2000 in relation to say a smart 150 or PDR 143?

I don't want to overstuff my rig, but I do want as big a reserve as possible, and if the speed fits as well as its published size suggests, well why the hell not.

Thanks in advance.


Nadeem

The Speed2000 packs similar to a PD Optimum

So a 170 is unlikely to fit into an I4?

The SPEED 2000 and the PD optimum reserves packs smaller than the "normal" PD reserves.
Looking at the CI, it will fit.
The Speed 2000 is a good reserve.
