How Much Does My Wings Weigh.. ?? Can't Post

Hi Ya everyone,
I wonder if you could help?

I have a new Wings W14 with a PD Optimum 193 and I'm awaiting delivery of a PD Silhouette 190.

Could anyone tell me what the rig might weigh with the main packed.

Ive been a bit greedy with the beer and bacon sanis so I need to work out how much i need to lose to get my wing loading where I want it :-)

Thanks in advance

Rob

ps my first rig, just moving away from club kit :-)

Just weighed mine (same container, same reserve, Safire 2 189 for my main) using a digital luggage scale.

24lb 7oz

Don't forget the weight of jumpsuit, altimeter, helmet, shoes... I was surprised at the difference in my actual kitted-up weight (thank you, DZ scales) and what I had come up with for me plus rig Smile
