Review: I got this as an upgrade for my little 2 pod harness a while ago, and have loved it ever since. It has survived crawling in dirt, being dropped COUNTLESS times, and been through tons of games.

The front is just one big velcro strap, easy to tighten. Theres also two elastic velcro pieces on the sides which can help once you've gotten it mostly on for a bit of a tighter fit. The padding in the back makes this thing a joy to wear, you BARELY even feel 4 pods and a 68/4500 on your back. I don't think I'll ever get another pod pack, though I might get a tactical vest some time in the future.

I have never had a pod drop out when the velcro holding it was fully on. The pods face downwards, and you just unstrap the velcro and the pod almost drops into your hand. Maneuvering the pod back into it's holder when you've loaded your hopper is really easy, no twisting your back or anything, just slide it right in and push the velcro up. If you really need to pack extra paint, two elastic pod holders are included, but they are pretty stiff, it takes a LONG time to put your pod back in once your done. I use them for water bottles and such.

I haven't washed mine yet, and it's covered in dirt, grime and paint, and works just as well as when I got it. I can't think of any complaints for a 35 dollar pod pack. I haven't used an NXe to compare it to, but from what I hear, this is better. Can't imagine how any 4+1 could get better than this.

And just in case anyone was wondering, the thick pad does NOT get in the way unless you're a little kid. I'm 5'7 and I have NEVER had a problem with crouching while using this, or moving around. It doesn't hinder my movement whatsoever, merely helps because I don't feel the weight on my back.
Conclusion: Great pod pack, well worth the price, durable, COMFORTABLE, pods drop out easily... For $35, it's a great choice. Definitely deserves a 10.
