Review: I bought one of these from the Planet website in preparation for The Drug Wars Big Game 2k3, but on the day it turned out to be a bit disappointing. The waist adjustment didn't seem to be able to hold my size at all and as a result it kept slipping off or the pack would end up hanging off of me.

Another disadvantage of the pack is its wide profile, as you have 2 140 pods sticking out of your side, and I was hit at least twice during the day on the pack (considering that 350 people were on the other team though, this isn't surprising).

When strapped on, the pack was actually quite comfortable: 3 pods isn't really much weight and the lack of support isn't a problem, especially considering the price. The zip pouch was pretty useful, but it took some getting used to being able to manipulate it from behind my back. The keyring was also good for keeping a straight shot on, and I found that handy.

Conclusion: Overall, though, the pack was disappointing due to the fact that it would slide off or lose its hold if I was running/crawling or any real kind of movement. However, I was able to pick up one of these for about £10 (on sale from the eclipse site) and for the price it isn't bad. I have since bought more expensive and better packs, but I'm keeping this one as a spare and/or for rec play.
