Period of
Product Use:
3 months
2 years
Products Used:
Circle pack, Reckless Paintball pack
Marker Setup: Stock Ion, Revvy, Freak, Pure Energy
Strengths: Holds lots of paint, not to mention the space for a 20oz. CO2 cannister.
Weaknesses: Belt was uncomfortable, pods and air tank poked me in the back.
Review: This pack is a great buy if you are a guy who only goes a few times a year, and likes using the remote cord. It holds a decent amount of paint, and the ability to hold either a spare gas tank, or hook up a remote cord, is very nice.

However, I found that both the gas tank and the pods in the pack would stick into my back while running or prone. Also, the belt was a little too small for my taste, but that's just me, cause I'm a big guy. On a few occasions, I also had the pods get stuck in the pack, which wasn't very fun when I needed paint.

I also found that after about 3 games, my back would get sore both from pods poking me and from lack of padding.
Conclusion: Nice pack for those who go just for fun once in a while. This pack really doesn't perform when you're in a tight spot though. Not too comfortable either.
6 out of 10

Good Review. I was having the Pods Poking my Back Problem too Because i was putting them in wrong. are you having the bottom of the pod hitting farther up on your back or the top lid on your back.

If the lid is hitting your back you might be placing them wrong in which case results into a sore and....pokey? back. You May be doing correct and just aint for you, but I having same problem too and just felt like asking. Oh and for the tank i would know never use a tank in that.
