Products Used:
Redz Dimension pack. A bit more versatile than the Bullet Paq (you can reload the main three pouches easily if you're playing recball on a huge woods field), but the Bullet has some features that the Redz doesn't have.
Marker Setup: Matrix (LED w/ pushbutton) with AA Messiah @ sub-200psi input. AA Armageddon 68ci 4500psi, no drop forward, set at 800psi.
Palmer Cocker same, except AA Vigilante @ 325psi input.

Lapco barrels (AS or BS depending on paint size). 12V Revies.
Strengths: About 10%% less in price than an equivalent Redz setup. Lighter than Redz since it doesn't use a separate belt. Elastic straps at the top of the inner pouches push the pods down slightly when you un-velcro the flap, making it slightly easier to grab the pod.

Elastic pod holders which carry the two additional pods have a unique loop which holds the lid of your pod shut. This is a simple addition that can save you the loss of a full pod of paint. You don't have to carry your outer pods in the lid up position, they can be in the same position as your inner pods.

Like the Redz, made in China with quality sewing construction.
Weaknesses: The 10%% savings over a Redz Dimension pack with belt was lost when I found the Bullet Paq's belt was way too big for me. I'm a slim guy and there was far too much material on the belt. According to the Extreme Rage instructions, I could've just cut the belt, but I wanted to get a half-decent sewing job. I had a local tailor cut it down and sew it for about five bucks. No big deal, but that was about the price difference between the Redz pack w/belt and Bullet pack.

The loops on the additional elastic pod carriers have to be positioned carefully on the lid of the pod, to make sure it doesn't spill. Again, not really a big deal, but it's still not as secure as the inner pouches. Still, it's the best solution so far to avoid the lids opening on these extra carriers. [Best way to make sure they're on properly is to slip your pod all the way in to the lid. Attach the loop around your pod lid's tab. Then, pull the pod DOWN slightly, to put some tension on the loop. This should keep the loop attached to the tab]

Strangely, you have to pull out your inner pods first, before you pull out the outer layer. If you try to use the outer layer first, the inner pods really press against the outer pods, making it a tight pull.

Impossible to re-load the outer pods during a game, and difficult to reload the inner pods. Unlike the Redz Dimension packs, the inner layer doesn't have a reinforced opening.
Conclusion: The Bullet is probably the best tournament pack. The elastic straps on the inner layer and the elastic loops on the outer layer are thoughtful additions that help with removal and prevention of paint spill.

It gets one point off, however, for possible sizing problems if you are really thin (which the Redz packs solved with its separate belt and pack system) and for it's lack of reinforced openings for easy, mid-game repacking.
