Review: It's a good belt. Nothing really bothers me other than the belt size.

Pros:
Color. It comes in camo, black, and some other color. I have camo, and it's good. My dad's is black, and it looks better in real life than in the pictures.
Capacity. Confused because it came up on both pros and cons? It holds 4 pods. I never get lower than two empty. It has a tank compartment, which is good for a spare or a remote. Read below for why it's on both lists.
Price. Was $15 or $20 on wholesalepaintball.org. Not bad price.
Tough. The material is pretty tough. It isn't thin at all, but isn't ultra thick.
Doesn't fray. Nothing left to say.

Cons:
Belt size. It's great if you're heavy like most paintballers or if you're not in the middle of a 5 year growth spurt. It's embarrassingly large, and can't be tightened to my size (i wear size 30). I got several comments of how it was hanging low, and right as I went off into the woods at the beginning of the game, it fell right of my pants.
Capacity. Here's the solution to the mystery: It only holds 140 pods. Doesn't hold 160 or more (if there is a larger size). But, as far as I know, 160 round pods are $5 each instead of $1.
Horizontal, not vertical. Unless you're wide enough to fit into the belt, the pods stick out. If you're running through tight spaces and you're skinny, you'll get clotheslined around the waist. I had to keep on turning sideways to get through my friend's house door.
Strap system for tank. It's not too good, but I only stored my 12 oz. spare when I had it. It would work fine once I get a remote for my 72 cu. in.
Cleaning. I think it has cardboard in the dome around the pod, so I can't submerse it. The Velcro is almost too good, because it doesn't let sand out easily. But, it doesn't bother me to not be able to clean it. I think the paint splats look cool for it.
Conclusion: Get it if you're heavy or have wide hips. If not, don't buy it. I'd give it a higher rating if there were some profound features about it. It's just an average pod belt.
Rating:
6 out of 10
