Canopy Sizing Chart
Standard Fitting: Pack volume represented by these sample groups should be considered optimum recommended pack volumes, to ensure proper fit, function, and ease of packing.
Full Fitting: Due to different canopy designs and material bulk, some canopies have slightly larger pack volume. Pack volume represented by these sample groups should be considered the maximum recommended pack volumes, to ensure proper fit, function, and ease of packing
Caution: if you put a full fitting main canopy and full fitting reserve canopy in the same container; this may be very hard to pack if bulk distribution is not correct. This is particularly true for the containers V303, V304, and V306
Most canopy recommendations are determined by United Parachute Technologies actually packing the canopy into the specified Vector container. Canopy types included in this chart are intended to represent a group of common canopies suitable for each container size. Any canopy type with similar pack volume as the sample group will naturally be suitable for the same container. Brands appearing in this chart are in no particular way more suitable for our Vector containers over brands not listed.
NOTE: Canopies with logos pack larger
