Canopy Sizing Guide

We are referencing to regular 9 cell Icarus canopies and Icarus reserves in our sizing guide. Please mind that different canopy models might pack differently. For example most of the 7 cell canopies are packing smaller and most of the cross braced canopies are packing bigger than regular 9 cell canopies. Please ask your canopy manufacturer about the pack volume of the particular canopy. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
