Experience:

Products Used:
Redz Dimensionz packs - no padding, bounced a little, had to buy appropriate belt size.
Empire - no padding, bounced a lot, not comfortable.
Proto - some padding, didn't bounce; velcro doesn't seem secure, although it hasn't come undone yet.
Dye - they're packs nowadays have more padding than my bed pillows, which is awesome. But the packs are like a c-note!
Marker Setup: Alien '06 Interceptor
Lucky Un1tech
AKA Sidewinder
CP direct mount
rip'd & B2'd Halo
Guerilla Ambush 68/45
Strengths: Very good padding
Pods slide in & out easy
Doesn't bounce
Holds 9 pods!
Weaknesses: Price but most good packs are in the same range.
Review: Didn't need a new pack, the Proto was working out ok and i could switch back to the Redz at any time. But my cousin forgot his pack one day, ended up buying this one, then gave it to me since i needed a pack that holds more than 4 pods (i play back, usually). So right away, the main point here is i got a free pack! Although technically he owes me money, anyway. But i digress.

Pros:
- Comfort. Padding is ample, straps are secure, and the pack holds the pods tight to your backside so they're not slapping around back there like a cowboy on a bull in a rodeo. Dye packs have more padding but at a higher cost.
- Pod Fit. Pods slide in super easy, pods slide out super easy.
- Versatility/Expandability. Holds primarily 4 pods, good enough for any position. Yet it also has the +3+2 elastic straps to hold a total of 9 pods for us back players. Perfect.

Cons:
- I don't know. I mentioned price but you can't ever get away from the large price tags in paintball. Not yet, anyway.

Haven't mentioned durability yet, since i've only used it once and my cousin only used it once. But it looks to be built very well and i haven't had a durability problem with a pack yet.
Conclusion: I had previously shyed (shied? sp?) away from NXe packs, mainly because the padding hadn't been sufficient about 1-2 years ago. The Elevation series doesn't seem to have that problem. Solid pack for a middle-of-the-road price tag.
