Review: First thing I noticed about the pack, was it's huge size. I expected it be as tall as it was, but man this thing is really wide. It's nearly as wide as it is tall. I've actually hidden behind bunkers smaller than it. On the contrary, it's probably the only pack large enough to hold all my gear.

This pack really was designed for everything. Pods, packs, masks, barrels, guns... and even more. Also the two main compartments are direcly on top of each other and feature a removable divider. The marker storages on each side are both identical. They held my angel and autococker (with a large drop forward) very well, and very securely. I would bet that they would hold nearly all guns without a problem. The pouches in the marker storage area are really too small. They are too small to hold a nitrogen tank, and just barely hold a hopper (same results for both HALO and revvy). The marker area does feature I nice barrel plug/condom holder directly above the marker holder- very conveinent.

The pack itself is somewhat difficult to load. I loaded the guns first, and the bag kept trying to collapse on itself. I tried to load the middle compartments first, and it just fell over. Of course any backpack will do this, and it's just one thing people used to duffel bags will have to used to. Also, when you consider the weight of all the stuff you carry to the field, it can be quite difficult to actually put this thing on. The best approach is to put it on a bed, then just settle into it... (now don't get any dirty ideas!). However, once the backpack is put on, it is very comfortable. The pack just really conforms to your back. The whole back portion is cushioned, so it's really nice. This is an advantage over wheeled duffel bags, because they work like crap in the woods. A backpack works great!
Conclusion: Overall, I would say get this pack if you have alot of gear. If you just have one gun, I'd reccomend the smaller backpack (Red Fusion). If you can't fill this bag up with all your paintball stuff; it would really just be a waste of money.
