Products Used:
View loader 2 pod holder (terrible compared to this)
Marker Setup: 03 VF Autococker
CP Nickel drop forward
12" Smart Parts Teardrop barrel
12v Revolution
Strengths: Very comfortable, holds plenty of balls for rec play, looks sleek
Weaknesses: Hard to clean, balls will not bounce off it, hard to put pods back
Review: I play rec ball just about every weekend, and before using this product I was using a cheapo viewloader thing that only holds 2 100rnd pods and is stapperd on by a belt that comes with it. Well I decided to get this new one because basically I was running out of paint when playing speedball, and to my suprise it was far more comfortable. Because it comes with a little back support pad, that cushions your lower back (feels just like a back support strap), I would say wearing it is almost more comfortable than wearing nothing at all. Plus there is a little pouch that will securley hold keys and money in.

Also for the general purpose of the weekend warrior, four 140rnd pods is more than enough to get you through a game. The only problem is that once a pod is used, you would like to idealy just throw it on the ground after loading. Well I quickly had 3 pods stolen or lost that way so I had to teach myself how to strap these things back in after loading. Its not a big deal, but it is annoying and you can lose your concentration pretty easily if you get frustrated.

Another minor problem is that if a ball hits it anywhere, you can pretty much assure a break. Also it is difficult to clean mud and paint from it, but that only really matters if you are a clean freak like me (I spend 2-3 hours cleaning my gear after each day of play).
Conclusion: If you are a normal rec-ball player and don't want to worry about running out of paint this product is definitley for you. At 30$ it won't hurt your wallet much either. I give this product a 9 because it's not perfect but has more than lived up to my expectations.
9 out of 10

I never have a zipped pocket for the money or locker keys so that would be good, i also clean my stuff after every trip and i know how hard it is to get the mud and paint out somtimes.

Good review, i will consider buying one instead of forking out £40 for a bright pink glow in the dark 5+5 tourney pack that stands out brighter than a flashlight in my scenario play. I'll shut up now.
