Well I sold my #39 Ice Adrenalin Angel cuz I put way too much damned paint through it so now I shoot:
Dye Ultralite w/ 12 in ultralite ano'ed to match (it's dark blue)
Air America Armageddon 68ci
Air America Messiah Reg
12v w/x board
is the rest of the gun really that important?? (drops, tails, bottle covers etc?)
It's a nice pack that holds a lot of paint. Redz makes quality products and this is yet another one of those.
Well, the pack support system (the belt) breaks down rather quickly. I got about 1 good summer out of my pack before it really started to get uncomfortable. Also, you occasionally spill paint when opening the straps. This can be fixed however, in the way the pod lids hinges are placed. Not a big deal and happens rarely but it is still irritating.
While redz makes good products, I must say that I prefer Dye's attack pack. There is a lumbar support pad and I must say that it is more comfortable overall. I also like the way the pods hug your body instead of hanging there like the Redz pack tends to feel. This is important for a front player because you wanna be as tight as possible. I actually still have my redz pack but that is only for emergency purposes in case something happens to my Dye pack.
Very comfortable. You can get to all of the pods easily and quickly. If you choose to reholster your pods you can do it more quickly than with most other systems, with less blind fumbling. The velcro is stout as hell. I run mine upside down so the pods feed out the bottom and have never had them move at all. Restricts movement some, but not bad for the size of belt. Dye Invision seemed to restrict movement less-flopped around more. You can get the belt real snug to eliminate flopping around w/o being uncomfortable.
Resticts movement when bending over, kneeling etc. Does not flop around but will sag badly if you run very far. Suspenders needed unless you want to be pulling your pods up from around your ankles with paint flying around. They come with a tab for suspenders so it's no sweat.
About as good as it gets. Starts to sag if you run very far. Easily fixed though. Probably quickest/ easiest velcro type pack to get pods from. Doesn't bounce around.
It's made by REDZ everything is double stiched. What more is there to say?
....if you don't read the directions and accidently stick it in the washer....
This pack is made of high quality materials. In my opinion it's the perfect compromise between bulkiness and the amount of paint it holds. It holds about 700 paintballs and even though I shoot an Automag RT Pro, I've never run out in the course of one game. Thats 900 rounds you'd have to shoot (700+200 in revvy)...And I don't know about you but I don't have $30 to waste every game considering you might do 10 in a day. If you're looking for a great pack-buy a REDZ. Doesn't really matter what REDZ pack you get because they're all made great. Just personal preference I guess.
To start with, the materials of this harness are outstanding. This thing is built to last! The belt is by far the most comfortable part of the system. The pack will carry a ton of paint, with no movement at all. With the two pull out elastic loops for additional pods, why buy a larger harness? I am using Planet 140 round podz and they fit perfectly. There is plenty of velcro to keep them in place. Being able to add suspenders is a nice touch as well if you decide to carry 7 podz of paint.
It is not brain surgery attaching the harness to the belt, but some instructions, or an informational page would be nice. NEVER place a Redz pack in the washing machine. The little tag on the pack will tell you that, but how many people read the care instructions on clothes let alone a paintball pack? If you are sitting behind a bunker with your feet aginst it, don't even think about leaning back to see around it, but that can happen with any pack.
I had some lose strings on mine when it arrived, but two seconds with my pocket knife......problem solved.
It is a bit expensive, but for something that should last forever.........it is worth it.
This pack and belt is worth every penny. I paid a little more for it than I should have, but I like to support my local stores so I got it from them instead of online. I should never have to buy another paintball harness. I purchased this pack specifically because of the one horizontal holder. I live in Pennsylvania where it gets hot and humid as he!! in the summer. The horizontal holder is PERFECT for a small bottle of water to take along with you for BETWEEN games (NEVER LIFT YOR MASK TO DRINK WATER WHILE PLAYING!!!) If I ever feel the need to carry 5 pods of paint, I can always use one of the pull out elastic holders. If I want 7 podz, I can do that as well. If you are looking for a pack and harness, GET A REDZ. Don't waste your time with any others. You will not be disappointed.
