Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
Other harness look similar, but don't compare.
Strengths: Verticle pods, won't stick out causing easy-target practice and premature dead-box visits.
Weaknesses: The +4 are elestic straps, pain in ass to get pods in/out when playing.
Review: Good

- Comfort. This is without a doubt THE most comfortable harness system I have ever used. With the belt wider than my foot is long, this thing is great on my back. I can actually wear it for more than 15 minutes before my back wants to give out.
- Access. The access to the pods is easy and fast. Being verticle, I pull the strap and the pods goes right into my hand. Makes reloading in a hurry when necessary much better.
- The belt. Besides comfort, this thing is so wide that I don't even need suspenders to hold this up. And a 5.4 is a lot of weight to have no need for shoulder-support.
- Stylish. They look nice. They don't try to make a completely revolutionary flashy design, yet it's not just quickly sewn together fabric. It has a nice mid-balanced style to it to fit most peoples' needs.
- Design. Due to the design of how the pods fit into their slots, with all 9 pods in there this system will actually curve naturally. So when you put it on, it fits PERFECTLY on my back. Curves right to it. Adds to the comfort, makes it so paint stays tight to body (won't shake when I run).
- Again design. Vertical pod system. These pods are all tucked behind the back. They don't stick out. Makes it much better for a tournament or just overall pick-up speedball, you're a smaller target.

Bad

- Belt is sold seperately. It's nice to find this out before you buy it. Glad I buy from and support proshops, somebody buying this off the net would have been pissed.
- Add in harness and belt cost, this thing costs as much if not more than a case of paint. For fabric and velcro, it's expensive! This was the biggest downside to them, any of them. Especially the 5.4.
- The elastic straps for the +4. They are a little fun to initially get pods/guppies in them before you even put the system on. Just good luck getting them back in if you're playing in the game and tossed pods can be shot to get you out (depending on the specific field and rules you go by, not like this every where). Or if you're playing a Scenario where you're out there for an hour or two, you can't just toss it like in a tournament and pick it up in 2 minutes.
Conclusion: Overall if the price came down a little bit, this would be perfect. But despite the price this is the best system I have used to date. If money is no object, you have a bad back or just like comfort, and you require to be in tight spots without exposing much..... this is the harness for you.
