Products Used:
I have owned and/or used dozens of different packs in my 18 years of paintball.
Marker Setup: Viking, G7, a few mech cockers, Phantom (depends on what style of game I'm playing that day)
Strengths: Very well made. Very well thought out.
Weaknesses: Not terribly colorful, if you like that sort of thing.
Review: I was very impressed with this pack from the get-go. It is well thought out, in that small details are not overlooked. I like the zippered pocket as a safe place to stash keys and cash (a whole wallet would be a little difficult, but extra cash for paint fits fine).

The pack is comfortable to wear, much more so than my NXe pack. I like the small, removable back support cushion. There is a long enough band for "wider" players (unlike DYE packs).

The built quality is first rate. Better made than, for example, Extreme Rage packs. I like that the pod retention flaps don't have any glued-on pull tabs, as those tend to come off over time.

Several colors of trim are available, to match most any team color scheme.

Personally, I really like that there aren't elastic straps or any extra material over the pods. Not only does this serve to lower the profile of the pack, but allows for easy reinsertion of the empty pod. This is useful for non-speedball games where you can't just ditch pods all over the place.

Also, I edited this because I forgot to mention the pods. They come free with the pack, and they are among the nicest pods I have seen. The little detail of the release tab being recessed (rather than protruding) is just another example of the attention to detail that Joey & Co. put into their products.
Conclusion: Definitely worth a look. Not a budget pack, but rather a top end pack at an affordable price.
