Optimum 126 in micron v304?

Recommended Posts

Putting an Optimum 113 into my V304 was very easy - both getting it into the freebag and closing the container. I hope someone can post who has actually put in a 126, but I would be suprised if a 126 wouldn't fit...

PD state that as ageneral rule, optimum replaces the next size down in pd reserve. So it should replace a 113.
For your container u should be looking at a 106 PD reserve/113 optimum, might be tight???

Pack volume for PD 106 is 249
Pack volume of Optimum126 is 271

From where do you get those numbers? PD seems to be very secret about pack volumes. My understanding is that an Optimum packs about one and a half size smaller than the same sized conventional reserves from PD.

Thanks for the reply , but what I would want is the opinion of someone that has actually tried. Nothing beats empirical data you know.
