I put this rig together for exhibition jumps and off-dz jumps. It has carried up to 1000 square foot flags with ease, as well as a 40 pound pack of miscellaneous equipment into remote area jumps. 

The container is a Talon 2, reserve is a Smart 250, and there are two mains. One is a sky blue PD Silhouette 230 with about 300 jumps on it (granted, many at Burning Man!) and the other is a custom 265 s.f. Fury 7-cell from Flight Concepts. It is like-new with very few jumps. Both open very nicely, soft and on-heading. The reserve has one intentional jump on it. The Silhouette has a great glide and the Fury is fast for a 7-cell with microline, collapsible slider, and collapsible pilot chute. It has a much better glide and a lot more speed than a Sharpchuter or similar demo canopy.

The rig is in good condition but does not have an AAD. I can add an RSL. Beneath each mud flap is a slink-type loop for mounting packs. (Bottom attachment is done by lateral band to the harness hip ring.) The size is T7 (550/650) so it's a tight pack job for both the reserve and the 265 Fury, but certainly manageable. 

It can be seen and/or jumped at Skydive Arizona. If you want to jump it give me a couple days to get the reserve re-packed.

What size person does it fit

Hi, sorry to take so long to get back. I only check dz dot com a couple times a week. I'll check more often if you're interested in the rig.

I'm about 5'9" and 200 pounds, a little wide in the chest and shoulders, and it fits me perfectly. It would probably work down to someone 5'6"-ish with no problem. Taller than 5'11 or so it would probably be a little tight.

Thanks for your interest, let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know about it.

Hello again,

I'll be truthful here - it's already a very tight pack job. I think it would depend on the rigger. When I put the rig together it was with the intention of jumping into remote areas to support a medical group interested in getting into some difficult spots. I never intended to use it for a sport rig, just five second delays and then the canopy ride. It might be feasible, I have a couple of timed-out CYPRES'.  I could take it to a local rigger, pop it open, stick in a CYPRES, and see how easy it closes back up.

The alternative would be to put in a smaller reserve, or maybe consider a PD 253 Optimum. That is supposed to pack up the same size as the conventional PR 235. The Smart 250 would be a good reserve for an advanced student/transition rig.

Apparently Para-Gear's web site no longer has the pack volume chart. I'll look for a hard copy of the catalog tomorrow and see what I can find out. I don't remember if the container originally had a PD 235 or a 215. I bought it with no canopies in it.

Where are you? I'm driving from Skydive Arizona to Northern Washington in a couple of weeks. If you are along the way I can bring the rig by for an in-person inspection.
