have tried a few packs, some horizontal, some vertical. I prefer vertical and this pack beats them all
'99 Autococker, Eclipse blade w/ Stickies, Belsales Hollow Point 3way, Shocktech Drop Forward, Mac Dev Gladiator, Palmers Micro Rock, Lightning Bolt, Tungston Carbide hammer, 14" BOA Express .688, 68/3k PMI Fibre tank.
I love this pack. At first i was going to get the redz dimension but my buddy highly recommended this one.
First off, i have the old school ER 3+2 pack, it doesn't have the elastic loops on the outter section and it doesn't have the plastic on the inner pod holders. Personally, i prefer it that way.
The pack is VERY comfortable, well made too. I do a lot of sliding and this pack holds up well, in fact its not even in my way at all for sliding, but the belt does take a bit of a beating.
THe belt fits almost anyone. I wear a size 34-36 pants and the belt fits me perfect, i let my team mate borrow my pack and he's a small guy wearing a 26 or 28 pants and the belt fit him no problem too. Very Adjustable.
I'm not sure about people saying you have to take the inner pods out first. I always take the outter pods out first and i don't seem to have any troubles with it.
I can't really find much bad with it. I've had nothing but great experiences with this pack. Some people have had problems with stitching but i haven't had that issue with mine. This is a tough pack.
Whether you play front or back this pack is great. I usually carry only 3 pods on me since i'm a front player, but sometimes i play back and i can carry the extra 2 pods with ease. Its probably similar to the redz dimension pack. but i prefer this pack, every you see has the redz pack and i like the look of the ER back a little better, its not so flashy.
All in all, great pack for the money. Don't have to go and buy an extra belt.
