Products Used:
Dye Attack Pack, Cheap PMI 2-Pack, 32 Degrees Old School Pack
Marker Setup: Shocker S/F, Vertical Max-Flo, 20 oz. Anti-Siphon w/ On/Off, Eclipse Blade Trigger, and Boomstick.
Strengths: Doesn't move too much, cheap, relatively comfortable.
Weaknesses: Pods are hard to get out
Tough to get into certain positions
Review: When I first got this pack, I was amazed at how well it fit. It even had a little Attack-Pack type pillow on the back. The waist belt is very wide, reducing movement of the pack. I was used to running, and feeling my pods shake around, but this was a good snug fit, and not much moved. The drawback to this was that the snug fit makes it hard to get into the weird positions I sometimes had to get into. It got so frustrating, I almost took the pack off in game. Another small problem with this pack is that pods often get opened, and you see about 10 bucks just go down the drain. With it's horizontal design, there is nothing you can really do about this, it just comes with the territory. You're probably best off buying one of those new Dye Locklids. Last, but not least, it's REALLY hard to get out the pods. Maybe it's just the pods I'm using, but I've been spending way too much time trying to get out pods..and in Speedball, we all know that is a VERY bad thing.

Overall, I'd have to say with this pack, you get what you pay for. Although there are alot on flaws in this pack, I still have to give it credit for being so comfortable and secure. With some new tubes, you might be able to fix the problem I was having, and then you get a very strong pack overall.
Conclusion: I'd have to say if you're looking for a cheap, decently made pack, this isn't a bad idea. I'd check to see if 32 Degrees makes a vertical version of this pack. If so, I'd go with that one. All the problems of the Horizontal Pack would be solved, and you'd be looking at a very nice pack.
