Products Used:
Various other vertical packs
Marker Setup: blue Spyder E99
14" Smart Parts Progressive barrel
Pure Energy 3000 psi HPA tank
gray Viewloader Revolution hopper
Strengths: High quality materials and craftsmanship. FITS!
Weaknesses: Because they are horizontal, the pods can spill.
Review: I got this pack before I really started playing hard- sliding, diving, etc. Once I got comfortable with the pack, I had no problem moving as if it wasn't even there.

This pack fits as well as you want it to. The heavy-duty Velcro allows the wearer to put the pack on very tight, and the included back pad ensures a snug fit (my biggest annoyance is lose, bouncing gear when I am running).

I think reaching for horizontal pods takes a little getting used to, but I find it much easier than pulling vertical ones. You have the option of reaching across your body to pull a pod (what I find to be easiest) or pulling it with the close hand. Either is not difficult.

There is of course, the inherent down-fall that gravity can get your paint if one of the pods pop open, but this is easily fixed by getting pods with tight-fitting lids. I bought some super-cheap clear ones, and they work like a charm.
Conclusion: This pack is nearly unbeatable price-to-quality. You'll either love or hate the orientation though.

WARNING: Your pods are more open to being hit than with vertical packs, and a hit on the pods lid WILL break the paint inside or open the pod. There isn't much you can do, but it is something to keep in mind.
