    Fair enough, there is that TSO C23b, based on 1949 standards, that makes things 'more legal' by having few limits!

    The TSO is silent with respect to deployment speed. In most cases, skydiving aircraft are flown at less than 150 mph.

    OK I will be that asshole, 280 is big bro! Even if you can pull off the equipment aspect it will make it harder to do the fun group aspects of skydiving. I know you are 6-4, and when you are tall the pounds add up, but how do you carry the 280? I am wondering if you are carrying extra weight you can lose, or if you have over interests like power lifting/body building that are a big factor in the weight? I am a midget in comparison at 5'6 but I carry a lot of weight on my frame relative to my size due to my build and weight lifting. I always have to balance wanting to have easier skydives with my friends against the desire to put on a bunch of weight to make lifting easier (and for vanity).

    Rest in peace Dave. You will forever be a friend, idol, mentor and inspiration to me. Like many, Dave trained me initially to be a rigger. After a few years I got good at it. One night in Eloy Dave, Weird Wayne, Dave Mahoney and myself were sitting around a campfire. Mahoney and I had the loft there at the time. Listening to Dewolf and His Weirdness discuss so many things that were way above the heads of Mahoney and mine was one of the greatest treats of my life. Respect, Love and Peace to you my friend. Mahoney and I still talk about that night. "There's a pork chop in every can"

    UPT, Mirage, and Jumpshack are all C23b manufacturers, i.e. no TSO weight or speed limits. Sunpath Javelins are currently certified for 300 pounds and 170 knots. The newest RI rigs are certified for 325 pounds and 150 knots. PD makes tandem reserves and military reserves certified for much higher weights than typical solo civilian applications. These require more altitude for opening, so other altitudes (opening, malfunction decision, AAD activation) need to be adjusted upward. Tandem reserves are readily available, and PD military reserves occasionally find their way to the civilian market. --Mark

    Dave had many "saves" himself and when you multiply that by all the riggers he trained the numbers would be in the thousands. A life well lived.

I am 5’9” 150 pound, fits a little snug on me. It would go up to 6’ and 180 pound for sure... Reserve last repacked by a rigger last year February in Australia. Container professionally cleaned. The rig haven’t been used in a last 3 years due to shoulder dislocation. The container is professionally modified to a left-handed deployment, also by a rigger. Paypal and North America only!!!

    LARGE GEAR

    At the OP: Rigger Lee got at this a bit, but you'll be pushing the certification limits of standard gear. Some rigs are certified to the old traditional 254 lbs (jumper plus gear), others as high as 300 lbs, but I'm not sure if there's anything beyond that. (Unless one uses adapted tandem or military gear.) So it might be hard to be totally legal. Not that people haven't slightly overloaded gear before. People over 230 lbs (without gear) skydived even when nothing was certified past 254 lbs, so with the available gear they were always overloading it a little. Reserve canopies have a similar issue to the rig itself. E.g, the biggest PD reserves, whether regular or Optimum variety, max out at 290-300 lbs for certification. So, similar to what Lee is saying, you at least want to maximize things in your favor by considering gear features that are more forgiving of high weights and speeds.

    LARGE GEAR

    I want to second this feedback - being a larger jumper and the increased snatch forces RiggerLee mentioned, you are at higher risk for line dump with increased consequences associated with more mass traveling at higher velocities. At a minimum, I would steer you away from stowless (fully or partially) bag designs. While you are at it, consider a Firebolt as a main canopy. Full elliptical (fun to fly) and a very deliberate sniveler. Originally marketed towards camera flyers in the mid-2000s. The Firebolt is also a hybrid design, which will help with volume and ease of packing.
