Products Used:
various standard rental harness's.
Marker Setup: 98c with a 12" sniper barrel and MP5 style shoulder strap. horizontal zip line fed loader/tubular clip (30 in the clip, 1 in the chamber). Brass Eagle Hauler with an added leg strap for stability and rattle reduction. V-Force Armor mask custom fit for sun and eye glass's.
Strengths: First off, It's reasonably priced and very durable despite what people think about Brass Eagle. Like most of my gear the Hauler is easy to modify for personal preference. I sewn in a leg strap to make it more secure. This product is perfect for players that want some thing a little more compact and can conserve their paint better (due to it's limited 200 ball capacity).
Weaknesses: There are a few problems with the hauler when it comes to design. Because it only has a waist belt, it makes a lot of noise when running. It bounces against your body with every stride you take, the faster you run, the louder it is. That's why I added a leg strap at the bottom, so as to prevent this. I affectionatly call this the "paddle ball hauler" (you know those little wooden paddles with a little red ball and rubber band that kids used to play with? yea..)
The other problem is with the cover flap's velcro. The furry part of the velcro doesn't correctly line up with the stiff hooked brissle part, so you cannot close it all the way making it shake and rattle even more. Another problem, at least a problem for those who like to waste paint, is that the Hauler can only carry two 100 round tubes.
Conclusion: Despite it's stigma of a brand name, this harness is actually pretty good. I'm a more conservative shooter and don't feel the need to waste $40 on paint for a quick game, so this was a good purchase for me. I can't help but laugh at some of these gung-ho players carrying 1000+ balls on them in a cumbersome harness for a 15 minute game, heh. Eventually you'll want something better, so when the time comes you can pass it on to a friend who is looking to get into the sport. It has a few design problems, but if you like tinkering with your gear to fit your personal preferences, than this a good buy.
