Smart 120 - PDR 126 pack volumes

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is any discernible difference in pack volumes between the Smart 120 and PDR 126?

Official quoted figures from different companies aren't that comparable I've found with other canopies in the past, so has anyone got actual first hand experience?

Thanks.

I'd rather have an opinion from an independent rigger that has experience of both.

My reason being, I could speak to both and get them to quote me pack volume and dimensions, but they are likely to be the same figures that I can find on their tech specs info, and different companies info in that regard isn't always comparable.

I have packed dozens of Smarts and hundreds of PD reserves.
The first time I had to assemble and pack a Smart into a new size of Sidewinder (Canadian-made rig similar to a Vector 2), Al MacDonald was all worried about how well it fit.
I replied "Al, I really only noticed the difference in pack volume when you asked me. The Smart might pack 5 percent bigger, but I was not conscious of the difference until you asked."
