Well considering I got this and 3 pods Brand NEW for $5, I'm am very pleased!!! I am planning on only using one pod , and a water bottle in one of the other straps. But for a first pack it seems very nice and quite usable. I'f you can find one I would suggest it, because, a pack serves one purpose......HOLD PODS, and this does that just perfectly!!!!!! Unlike some of the Empire ones, you only have a few colors to choose from and you have velcro straps to hold the pod up inside of the band. So overall a very good little pack. But of course it is not perfect so...

Hard to pull pods out of elastics at first.
I got this pack fo $17 even though i had an NxE 3+2 as a backup and i ended up using it full time. its a great pack despite the fact that the elastics take a while to wear in. I like the design and the strap keeps it on you well while being very comfortable. the pocket comes in handy too if you are at a field and dont want to lose your phone, wallet, etc.
Good pack for the price

when i first got this pack, i liked it, but after playing a few games with it, i wasn't too happy with it. the pods are very hard to get out of the pack, and you will sometimes pull off the lid to the pod and spill your paint. it's not very comfortable, it bounces too easily when you run or even jog.
get a redz pack with a comfort belt if you can afford it. it's so much more comfortable and the pods just slide out into your hand when you pull the strap.

Everything. its so comfortable. and doesnt bobble around on your back.
Nothing at all. this pack is the best i have seen.
It's an awesome pack way betta than redz cuz redz pack u have to buy belt and its not as comfy. when u first get this pack fill up the pack and leave pods in for a day or so to loosen it out so you can pull the pods out easier and get them back in easier, if u have the desire. its cheap. insteead of wastin so much money on a dye attack pack get this. it doesnt bounce when running on your back. its great for frontmen. cuz frontmen dont use that much paint. on my team i usually only carry 3 pods cuz i never go through anymore than that. get it!!!!!!!!
I have used Redz and Extreme rage packs they were both complete garbage compared to the new Mantis packs. The quality does not compare, you can tell just by feeling the mantis pack that it is very durable. It's also nice that Mantis is made in the U.S and redz and extreme rage is made in China. The Mantis Pack is less expensive and better quality than redz.

Extremly comfortable It feels great on, never moves and it is very solid and well made. The staff at Mantis are great they helped me find what I wanted and told me if I wasnt satisfied I could return it. But as you can see I love this thing. I would recommend this and all mantis products.
I wish Mantis made products 5 years ago when I was first starting off.
Try this pack and you will agree that it is the best pack out because its less expensive and better quality than the rest. I'm very happy with this pack. They also have one of the best web sites in the industry. These guys are ahead of their time. I am extremely sastified with the pack, I don't know what else to say
but try it borrow one you will see.

Piranha Pro TS G3, with sticky's and a crossfire 68/4500
This is a very good pack for the 30 or so dollars that you spend on it. The Elastic gives you a very nice fit, the diamond cut outs and the pull string to release you pods are nice.
It doesn't feel like it will stay on why you slide headfirst into bunkers. I haven't done that yet so I don't know. And I don't like the open top for the pods. Itís nice because you are restricted to one size. but it doesn't offer the security that the redz pack offers.
For a player on a budget it works, i'll agree that its no where near a redz pack but it is still a quality pack. Its nice because i usally play front so its small enough to still make me a small target, but still big enough to offer enough paint if i play back

Pack bounces around
I bought this pod pack when I first started playing paintball and it has served me well for over 5 years. I carry 3 pods for rec games, and 5 pods for big scenario games. Getting pods back into the elastic loops is difficult, so I usually only carry 3 pods. I rarely get shot in the pack since it has a compact profile. The pod slots, elastic, and velcro are still tight and secure after 5 years of use. Just make sure you get the right size for your waist and don't put on too much weight later. My friend's pack still fits securely, but it does't look good all stretched out. Recently I've notice that the pack bounces around more. Overall this pack is the perfect size for the rec games I play.
This pack is perfect for rec players. I bought this pack before I knew anything about pod packs, and before I read any reviews, but I haven't regretted it at all.
doesn't move around alot
pods fit nice and tight in it
it is kinda uncomfortable after a while
This is a very nice harness if you aren't looking to spend 50 buck for a Dye Harness or whatever. The pod holder fits very tightly wtich kinda of a burden after a while, but other than that i think it is great for the money! And plaus it has an extra pouch so you can carry a squeggie or tools on with you to the field but it is kinda hard to get at.
