Review: I bought these pods because I was getting tired of the time it took to properly pack pods. In standard pods, if there aren't enough balls, you can get pods breaks. If there are too many, you might break one when you close the lid.

These pods were exactly what I was looking for. You fill it close to the top, close the lid, and insert into harness. Done. No shaking to check for loose balls, and no guessing if you should take one out before you try to close the lid on a tight stack.

The plastic on these pods feel a lot more durable than the standard pods. The fit of the lids on the pods also feels like a perfect fit. The way it snaps closed and when it's popped open makes you feel like it's only going to open when you want it to. The hinge feels solid too. Of the 5 pods I ordered, they all look and feel exactly alike. The fit and feel of the lid action is consistent among all 5. This is quality.

The pods worked beautifully during actual play. The lids opened with no problems. The pads did not get in the way of reloading into my VLocity Jr. I also noticed that the lids kept paint out of the inside of the pods when they took hits to the edges.

After six months of use, I discovered the Shockpads need to be kept dry. If they get wet, they will absorb water. This is bad, because the next time you load the pod, moisture will seep out of the pad onto the paintballs, causing them to stick, swell, or lose shape. KEEP THE SHOCK PADS DRY and you won't have any problems.
Conclusion: I recommend this product to people who fill their own pods and want to save time. The pads make it faster to get your pods loaded and ready for the next game. They are very durable and well made. All these qualities make it better for practice so you can maximize your time on the field.
