Review: I picked this up at my local Goodwill (As well as my AutoCocker and Java mask) because I needed a harness. It turned out very well.

Aesthetic:
It's not the prettiest harness out there, but it does the job very well and lends itself to camo readily. 4/5

Capacity:
Although I rarely dump paint, it's nice to have a few spare pods for teammates or if you get into a tight spot. 5 pods is a little much, and is very heavy to carry. Because of the sheer weight of the paint and the way the harness supports it, I'll give it a 4/5

Affordability:
I got it for $10, and I think MSRP is $50, so that's a little high for a harness. Nevertheless, you get a great bang for your buck. 4/5

Overall user-friendliness:
Unlike some other 5 pod harnesses that I've used, this really doesn't get in the way. I am an agressive player and run and dive a lot, and I barely notice it. Crawling with it is slightly difficult because it tends to pull down, and the velcro can come undone (not that that's a problem, it has plenty of it). The waistband is good because it is basically one big piece of Velcro and the whole harness is the same width and thickness all around. Overall, a good harness, and good balance between weight and capacity. 4/5

Total: 16/20
Conclusion: This is a good product, and I would suggest it to scenario players and recreational players because it is good for middle players and reserved tape runners, but is bulky and hard to reload from under the type of intense fire of speedball. The capacity is good, the support is good, and all around a good harness. 8/10
