Review: I got this pod pack when I was first getting into paintball. I wanted something with a low profile that could help me carry a little extra paint onto the field, especially for scenarios and longer woodsball games. The product works very well, but the craftsmanship seems to be a little shoddy.

Pros:
This leg pack helps you keep a very low profile, which is especially helpful if you tend to crawl a lot. Since it is mounted on your leg and not your back, you don't have the extra mass of pods on your back to get hit or spotted while low crawling.
I was very pleased to find out that this leg pack will fit Q-pods. They fit perfectly. So, not only can you fit conventional pods in it, but if you are Q-loader inclined the Q-pods fit snugly and securely as well.

Cons:
Unless you really cinch up the leg straps (which can get kind of painful after a while) the weight of the pack and the pods tend to pull at your belt, pulling your pants lower and lower if you're not careful. I'm sure that if you added some sort of rough non-slip backing to the straps you could fix it, though.
When I first got the pod pack I had a problem with the way the velcro closures were sewn onto the pack. Straight out of the box the velcro was already coming off. I sent it back to Spec Ops and they fixed it, but I was still dissapointed that they didn't have it right the first time.
Conclusion: Overall, this pack is very good for people who want to keep a low profile. It also is quite versatile in that you can cary conventional pods, Q-pods, or even your 12 oz CO2 tank (if you run remote). The slippage can be easily fixed, and I was pleased that Spec Ops fixed the stitching problem.
The minor flaws are definently outweighed by the product's versatility and low profile.
