    MAINS

    This main pack tray is 1/2″ smaller than the MX.  Be aware that as containers get smaller each 1/2″ becomes a larger percentage of the pack volume.  In a small pack tray a tight pack job can quickly become a brick.  If your canopy is not listed here, you can send it to us and we will do a pack volume test at no charge.

    How Should My Canopies Fit Into My Rig?

    For a rig to look its best, and to look great on you, it needs canopies that fit!

    We size the containers for the maximum size canopies they can comfortably hold for most packers in most locations.  Customers should note that container fit is slightly subjective.  The tightness that one prefers, others may not.  Larger sizes may be squeezed into some containers but may damage the container.  Main canopy sizing is based on using the Mirage primary closing loop location (#1 bottom flap).

     

    • SOFT = This is a nice fit for dry climates, such as the desert, where canopies usually pack larger.  Humidity and altitude affect ease of packing, especially zero porosity fabrics.  If you jump in a dry environment we definitely recommend you avoid choosing a firm fit.  You’ll thank us later!
    • RECOMMENDED = You, and your rig will be happy.
    • FIRM = This will be a difficult pack job to make look good.  Firm reserves will make your harness tighter in the shoulders.  Firm mains will often look ‘pregnant’.  If the fabric of the rig is stretched for an extended period, it will never shrink back.
    Materials suitable for a life-saving device

  • Canopies not listed on our chart can be packed if they meet these criteria.

    Reserve Container:

    • Your riser cover tuck tabs should not be pulling out (too much bulk up top)
    • Your reserve pin cover tongue should be fully inserted and laying flat
    • Your reserve pilot chute should not wobble when you press on it (not fully compressed)
    • The force required to move the ripcord pin should be less than 22 lbs

    Main Container:

    • Your main grommets should not be visible when your pin cover is closed (main closing loop too long)
    • The sides of the rig should not have large dents (main bag not fully rotated into pack tray)
    • Every Mirage container size has a custom fitted main bag.  If you use a different bag, your main will probably not fill the container correctly.
    • The closing loop should not go slack and the pin should not move when the main container is firmly pressed, squeezed or kneeled on (loop is too long or main is too small)
    • The rig should not look pregnant (main is too large)

     

    Your Mirage should look good!

    Choose your container for the canopies you will be packing into it now, not the ones you might be packing into it later.

     

    Pack Volume Testing : If your canopy is not listed here and you don’t have the Mirage size you want to try to pack it into, you can send it to us (or have a demo sent to us) and we will do a pack volume test at no charge.

    Canopy Manufacturers : You can also contact the canopy manufacturer and ask them how their canopy packs compared to the other canopies listed here.
