Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Marker Setup: 2003 WGP autococker, Shocktech Supa Fly bolt, 12 volt Revy, 68/3000 crossfire tank
Strengths: Quality, durability, capacity, built in back support feature and a great design.
Weaknesses: Size of the belt is not for youths, high capacity could weigh you down.
Review: This is a wonderful product, the harness is made of high quality material and it shows. The main 5 pod holder are rigid and will not lose its shape even after washing, leaving me to suspect it is a plastic frame rather than cardboard. The capacity of this harness is amazing, you can play mule for your team and is great for back players. With 11 pod capacity you can carry well over half a case of paint, this way you don't have to guard your case from thieves. Of course you do not need to use 11 pods, it looks great with just 5, the additional 6 holders are generally out of view and does not affect the overall look of the harness. Everyone who's seen my harness is amazed at the quality and capacity. The top of the main pod holder has an elastic band with a small neoprene pad to grip the ends of the pod, this helps act as an ejection system. The front locking mechanism has 2 elastic bands to it, the first part secures the harness to the body, the second elastic band helps tighten the belt acting as a back brace, if you have back problems this belt is perfect for you.

The downside of this harness is that it can heavier than other harnesses, the higher quality materials will weigh more than some cheap nylon harness. The max capacity will carry approximately 1540 paintballs, thats like 75% of a case, which is about 9-10 lbs of paint, it will weigh you down when you run, but it is very secure, you will not feel it slip. The size suggests it is made for an adult, although not oversize, it is definitely not for children or possibly short/small players as the harness may wrap around or possibly cover up most of the torso area and might restrict some mobility.
Conclusion: Excellent quality, versatility (back brace feature and range of pod capacity) and durability (will stand up to washing), makes this a must have for people who like to carry a lot of paint or have back problems. I would recommend that children and smaller players try this harness out before buying it, if possible. Most people will not have any problems with this belt but smaller players might have some discomfort due to its size.
