Best container for a big guy

Recommended Posts

My rig is getting a bit long in the tooth and I'm thinking about buying a new one.  Anyone want to throw out 4 cents and give an opinion on the most comfortable rig for us really big guys?  I'm 6'8" with a 50 inch chest and broad shoulders.  I currently jump a vector with a sabre 2 230 which has never been terribly comfortable.  I totally understand that the patterns for rigs aren't meant for my species and will never be ideal, but maybe some are better than others.

Best one for me was the WingsEXT. Comfortable, longer, so the reach to pull was not as far up my back, etc. 6"6" 250# and jumped a disparate reserve & main. Main was a 169 and the reserve was a 249 Dash-M. Had it custom built with only hip articulation. Hope that helps.

I am 6-7 230, and I currently have three PMI Glide's and they are very comfortable.  PMI or Infinity would get my vote.  

Side note: I had to use the PMI ace rsl last year, and it was perfect.  I was in a violent spinning Mal, and I cut away the ace beat me by a mile, and to my surprise I had a perfect on heading opening.
