Review: Well I have use a few producy on my team and I have to say I like this one the best. It is light and fairly durable and can fit me with no real issues. The pack itself has 4 normal pod holders and 2 of those spandex ones that fit between normal pods. The pack comes with a radio holder (in which I started using to hold my squeege). The hydration pack itself is well made and has stood up to rugged woodsball use for over 5 months now. The bladder is rather large and I have not run out of liquid on a long day of scenerio play. The hydration bladder comes with an extra adjustable waist belt in case you want to seperate the pack from the pod belt in case you want to take it hiking or something. The key not is that this extra belt is used properly can strap in a tank into the rear cargo carrier of the pack without a problem. I run a remote line so essentially if you rig it properly this is a 6 in 1 pack. The pack is fairly light and really does not bog you down all that much, but if you find it an issue say for some odd reason you want to use this for speedball and not carry huge amounts of ammo with you you can take the hydration pack off and use just the pod belt. The pod belt is well made out of spadex and heavy dusty nylon for the straps to the pods. Now here is another nifty thing the pod are on a sleeve that slide onto the bely and velcro into place. so if you ever damage one tou can look for a replacement (I hear that the company that makes flurry paintball vests sell these style of pod holders but I cannot affirm that).

Ok now to the bad stuff about this pack. I would have to stay the whole pack is really well built except the zippers that hold the pack to the pod belt. I have never had the pack fall away from the pod bely but I have noticed the zippers seperate on a few occasions and since the area the zipper is sewn into is neavy nylon even most sewing places hesitate to even work on or replace the zipper. So if you get a bad zipper or if it gets too worn I would go into one of these places and see if they can fix it. Me I just got mine zipped up all the time for I have no need to take the pack off. My other beef is that I own Dye Lock lids and the straps for the pods do not hold them very well, however not many packs do hold these pods very well due to the lock lids larges size.
Conclusion: I would recommend this pack to anyone If you can get he camo one score... but the back one is just as good.
