Review: I bought the 3 pod pack version from action village which came with 4 free 140 round pods which brought the overall cost down but it still ran about $50 with shipping. I do think it will be worth it as most packs are very noisy and flop around a lot when you run. I really hate that about packs, they seem to get in the way or you always feel them hitting your back as you trot down the field and wonder if any paint has broken! The redz pack eliminates all the bounce completely, it's very secure when you strap it on so you can belly crawl all you want and these wont be shifting around on you as you go (great plus for us rec ballers). There's extra room for five more pods giving a total of 8 on the 3 pod version, which gives a total of 1120 rounds in the pods alone if your carrying 140 round tubes! I sure dont need that but hey it's there if I ever hit the lottery and decide every game I'm going to be the machine gunner who needs a refill on his 20oz bottle after every round! haha The extra straps are definitely harder to use though, I could see problems trying to put an empty pod back in them while on the field. Those straps are more for the tourny guys that just toss em and pick them up after the match. The standard 3 pods though can be put away easily. The guy in another review said there is some difficulty but that's only due to the tension straps that help you when removing the pod. I dont think they're very strong so after a few months they'll wear out a bit and the pack will be no different than any other. Even new though it's not hard to put a pod back into the harness while wearing it, so dont worry about that. The pack also comes with two straps to wrap around your body with (I bought the one for M/L people, I usually wear a size 34 waist). One is a shorter strap that fits me nice and snug with room to tighten it if I lose weight. Then there's another strap you can use that's quite a bit longer in case you need the extra slack. If it's cold outside and wearing a coat with this pack on over top I'm sure I'll use the longer strap. It's just more comfortable, no doubt this will fit some guys in the 44" range.
Conclusion: It's an awesome pack, little expensive but sometimes you can find online deals that supply free pods or gear like a squeegee that come free with it. Makes it a little easier to swallow the cost. Fits great, I'm glad to waive good bye to my old style packs. Passin em on to my spare gear section for extra guys to use who dont own their gear.

Do you really need pods or a harness i guess i might need like 2 but i could just buy 2 lock lids and put em in my pocket and it might work.
