Review: I have only had this product for a month now, but it doesn't take long to get a feel for it. The "belt" is made almost entirely from Velcro, and is very adjustable. I am not the smallest paintball player, but I find it is made for people with at least a 40 inch waist. this is due to the Velcro "seam" (the seam being where the hard, scratchy hook Velcro stops and the soft loop Velcro begins) is 40 inches from the loop end when the pack is laid flat on the ground. When a person with a smaller waist tries to wear it, you have to tighten it until there is about a foot of extra belt strap hanging from the side of your pack.


The other major drawback is the straps holding the tank in place. It is made up of two straps sewn to the back of the tank pouch, like any other pack. Most packs however, put Velcro on then ends of the straps and leave them loose. The Spyder pack however, has both the ends crossed over to the opposite side [that they started from] and sewn to a pull tab. This means that the only way to have a remote line is to attach it AFTER you place the tank in your pack.

Other than those two drawbacks, it is a decent pack.
Conclusion: I would recommend this pack to anyone with a budget in mind. It costs about $20, and it is not really worth getting a $50 pack that is only slightly better. I recommend trying on packs before you buy them, and make sure it has everything you need.
