2003.5 ICD Bushmaster BKO | Bob Long Torpedo Reg | Ricochet 2K | Check-it Unimount
Velcro can cause wear on some jerseys, mainly cheaper ones.
This pack is great. It's made out of a really durable material and strong velcro. The belt attached to this pack is very comfortable. It's not too big like some other ones and it fits nicely around the waste and does not affect movement because the elastic can expand and contract. Once bad thing about the belt is the velcro being a bit to strong. On some cheaper jerseys, the exposed velcro can cause wear on the jersey.
The pods fit nice and secure in the back of the pack, and even if the strap comes loose, the pod will not fall out. The profile is also nice, it keeps all the pods behind you and not sticking out the sides.
There is also a big zipper pocket in the back of the pack which can hold a squeegee, barrel sock, money, o-rings, etc...
Overall this pack was a great deal. I paid $39.99 for it and couldn't be happier. I give it a 9.5 out of 10.

Sometimes makes your jersey thread
I really like this product. I have had mine for about a year and i love it. It is very solidly made and it is also very cofortable. The only downside about this pack is that it sometimes makes my jersey thread, which is really no big deal. For the money i think this is a great pack and i would recomend that most paintballlers out there get one.
Overall it is a very good product and i like mine alot
Dead On Drop
A great pack!
None, I loved the pack.
A great product, very durable, very lightweight, coupled with good pods such as fatboys, this pack is great. Plus its alot cheaper than the redz. This pack is a must have for any front or back player, if you play front, just leave 4 pods in, if you play back, carry all 7. Also theres a zippered compartment on the inside of the pack, this alows you to keep almost anything inside it, very usefull if you need to carry things in the field, o-rings, barrel plug, money. All around a great pack, i loved it.
This is a grat pack, a much better value than the redz, you'll thank yourself for buying this pack, trust me!

I got one of these cheaper than usual because my team is sponsored by mantis, and got us a discount. When I finally got mine, I tried it on and was VERY pleased. They are Very comfortable. They fit well, and look good. They hold pods well, and aren't hard to get out at all. The only problem is that they use velcro to hold the pockets shut, that is a little weak. But it doesn't really cause any problems and all in all, this is a great pack. Best I've seen yet.
Other than price, It's VERY comfortable and sleek, so go buy it!

Dye which are very nice just don't hold as much. Redz which are almost exactly like this but this is better and you don't have 2 buy a belt. and Raven OBG. this raven OBG pack is way to wide but very very comfy.
02 vert red cocker, bullet 4-way, jackhammer II reg, 15 degree asa. system x cocking rod and drop. supafly bolt, wgp hinge with spoon trigger,
Very comfy. it has 4 straps.
Very nice. THis is my favorite pack. Theres nothing wrong with it and its very comfy. Alsoo it has a very small profile. Ever pod sits right next to each other. Also a flap came undone when i slide into the snake but my pod still stayed in the pack. very nice. Another very very good feature on this pack is that it has a secred compartment. Its zipper clossed. you can put padding, extra money, spare oring. or anything in it. I put all my money in it so i don't leave money in my bag in the waiting area. Theres also cloth all around the pod so you can get bounces like that. Alsoo it has a very small profile. Ever pod sits right next to each other.

I love this pack. In my preference its way better than redz. i would suggest you buy one.
I have never used another pack, but i know people who haved played more, longer, and harder than i have and their packs have held up where mine has failed.

Comfortable, adjustable as far as velcro straps to tighten or loosen
NOT durable, after the 6 month marker
I talked with Andrew from Mantis directly, and he assured me it is a great pack. Sure enough it is!! it will hold 140 round AND 100 round pods. it will adjust if you are real big or real small. I am a big fat back guy with a 42 inch waist and i have absolutely no problems getting it on, and i actually have to tighen it with the strechy velcro straps, so i get the perfect fit. My front man uses the same Pack but 3+2, and he is about 28 inch waist and it fits perfect on him too, he just has to wrap the straps around. One size does truly fit all. That is about all that is really the best about it, it is Expensive and Not durable.
still a nice pack, i still use it, but for the price you could get a much more durable pack and it would still be cheaper. the extreme rage packs are nice. and I hear good stuff about the M-pack and the JT packs(I hear this from Terry Neumaster, a key player in the invention of the Revvy and Evo 2, so i would assume he was a little biased.)
