OK, now im really confused Crazy
I guess im not gonna know til we actually see it



Seeing it doesn't really help, unless you are going to measure it yourself. The label is going to say Raven 1, which PA says is 181 sq ft. The only measurement that really matters is to compare it to another canopy you have jumped and, even more important, see how it flys.

If you hang more than 180 pounds under a Raven 1, you are "a stupid, fat white man."

That is because Ravens were designed long before any one was building canopies designed for wing-loadings more than 1 pound per square foot. Why anyone would expect a Raven to land softly at more than 1 pound per square foot is ..... um ..... er ...... optimistic ...... clueless ....... over confident .......
