Paintball belts. Don't carry nearly as much, but aren't bad for walk-on games/ allow for more free movement. A decent belt will cost the same.
Price is amazing for the quality. Rap4 has a million upgrades, pouches, etc.
Hard to lay down w/ pods in front of you. Makes diving a challenge.
This is the only vest I've owned, but I have had hardly any problems with it. They are spectacular for the price. I am able to comfortably carry 4X 140's, 2X100's, field tools, energy bars, keys, 2 liters of water in a camelbak, an extra co2 tank, keys, wallet, a few grenades, and my goggles all on this vest... all for less than $100 including shipping. Quick disconnect sling is cheap and works well.
I reccomend using an insulated "camelbak" brand water pouch they definetly keep cold longest and never leak.
The only problems Ive had are...
1st If you are very small/skinny (I weigh about 140 and am 5-9) the "regular" size might be a smidge too big, even when tightened to the maximum. If I put my camelback it isn't bad though. The site claims that it will fit S-L, but I am a medium and can't see it fitting someone that wears a small t-shirt. (they have another that is XL+)
2nd The "co2/hpa tank holder" really only holds hpa tanks. I got one expecting to run a remote to my 24oz or 20oz tank, but they slide around too much/ fallout. Don't get this unless you are using a hpa tank. (I've seen others use it on an HPA tank and it works great) 12 oz co2 tanks fit in the pod pouches though, as do 24's... 20s are too wide.
Awesome vest for the price, reccomend to anyone. Give it a 9 b/c of slight problems listed above.
