Two of the loops can be hard to get paint out.. but no biggie
I can say this, for the price of the pack 30-45 bucks its well worth it. Ive been using my redz 4+3 for about 2 yrs... and i thought it was the greatest thing... then i put on this Empire 3+4... and boy the redz seems like a piece of junk. This harness is so light, small, soft, and comfy, looks great, can hold 3 main pods if your front, or carry all 7 if your mid/back. Its a perfect harness for all types of players and positions. The rubber lumbar support is very soft and comfy. And with less use of material for the harness helps reduce weight, and not having a seperate belt or a big bulky belt like alot of harness's reduces profile,comfort problems,and weight. The belt straps are small which is great, with my redz when i crouched or in any position other then standing the belt would scrunch, causing it to push into me, causing discomfort and then having my belt all wrinkled together. With the empire there is none of this, it fits secure doesnt bounce at all which my redz bounces like crazy and is heavy. All harness's have nothing on this harness. The worst thing about this i think is the 2 inner loop pods are hard to get out, but the 2 outter loops are easy. Putting pods in the loops is easy to do on these.
I recently used this at a practice just using the 3 main pod holders... even though only using a half a hopper to 1 pod a game... and not needing 3. But still a great harness... i dont think theres anything better... glad ive got this harness. What i love about it the most is its light allowing me to move faster,small profile.. no getting shot in the pack when behind a stand up like i use to with my redz and other harness's. Also it not bouncing like my redz harness is a major plus.. and i can slide, dive or just about anything and not have the harness move on me.. or belt wrinkle up.
Update: Ive used this harness for 3 more days of playing. Things still a beast, havnt lost a pod yet, belt hasnt scrunched which i know it wont, hasn't fell apart yet. Its still the perfect pack. To you people reading this review, thinking oh.. should i get this harness or should i go with a NXe, or Redz or something similar... use the extra cash you save from buying this pack and put it towards paint,pods or whatever other gear you need. Definatly best money spent when it comes to gear. Kind of wish i never spent the 65 for my redz, or wasted time useing other harness's but then again this product wasn't out when i started.
I LOVE THIS HARNESS SO MUCH!!! I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!!!!
Best pack out there, great for all styles of players,and positions. Its small profile,light,soft,comfy,cheap,looks great,and its a snug fit. I loved my redz till i put this on. I wish it could be a 50 because it definatly deserves it. Kudos to Empire on this great harness. So good looking, so comfy, small, light, doesnt bounce, less profile, smaller more comfortable belt system. Rubber soft comfy lumbar support, and back pillow. GET THIS HARNESS NOW!!!!! itll be the only harness you ever need.
Stop reading and buy it :)

haha.. well its based off what i bought mine at. And i bought it at a proshop (usually costs more, although it was cheap to me at the same price of online sites at the time) I still love this harness... i think i might have to stop using it next year due to sponsors.. if so it will be missed but nothing will replace it.
