The Xcel harness has been specifically designed for maximum comfort and durability. It is made of a lightweightballistic nylon mesh with dura-foam® back padding and direct free-flow venting. 90 mph hook and loopclosure system stays tight and will not slip during aggressive play.
The Dye Xcel Harness are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
Stock Class Phantom. Automag with everything just short of x-valve
It is very light, i was suprised at the light weight.
Doesnt move around
The pod holders are a bit tight at first and need to be broken in.
This is a great Harness. It is very light and hold enough pods. Sure the velcro is a bit loud but that shouldnt be a problem. The only bad thing i can say is that at first the pod holders were really tight and made it a bit difficult to pull the pods fast but didnt take long to break them in.
I very much recomend this product to everybody. It is made by DYE so you know it has great quality. Untill you try it you dont know what you are missing.

It looks pretty cool but it covers over my sexy jersey. It looks kinda funky with it on me over me jersey.
The Velcro strap is really long but you know that it won't wobble and fall off.
Pretty comfortable but I still have to get used to it on me this is this first pack i have used.
The velcro on this is really loud. This might be bad if someone hears this they might know you are out of paintballs and then bunker you. ouch.
This is a good pack from what I have experienced. I have never tried on any other harnesses so I can't really say if it is better than others. I'll give it a 9 since there can be room for improvement like being a little more comfortable but i probably just have to get used to it.

Velcro is Loud
The pack was just ok. It didn't have the double velcro strap so that they pack was hard to make tight and it bounced alot. The velcro strap is just one long strap. When the pack was spread out on you back it was way to big and you could easily get hit. Its not that comfortable and it is hard to make tight.
I would not buy this pack I would go for something else because you are paying alot of money for a not so good pack.

physcoballistics adjustable drop forward
crossfire 92/5000 nitro tank

Never falls off
Doesnt bounce around at all
The straps need worn in
pods with bumps dont fit well
I found out that you can fit 2 extra pods in the straps on the back of the pack
my pack is supposed to be a 4 down pack but i sewed some extra straps on and now it holds 20 pods... without sewing the straps on it held 15 for long games
This is the best pod pack ive ever used
Definately go out and buy this it is worth the money
WGP THS 3+4 harness, I felt like uprgading, and the small 100 pod 2 pack holster things.
Soon, Blue Vision Impulse with magnetic blade trigger. (As in 5 days from this review).
Light, works great, doesn't move too much and it does it's job
This is probably the best harness for anyone looking for a great product and a low price. It's the first "proffesional harness that I bought. It's washable, durable and keeps your back comfortable, no more unprotected hits to the kidneys. The only truly negative thing that i can think of is the strap isn't too elastic. It also doesn't have any loops for extra pods.
Get this if you want a harness for some recreational or even light tourny play. If you want something a little better, the WGP harness is great and about the same price. I'd give this product an 8, because it's a straight (at least mine) 3 pack, not extra loops, but still it's a good things.

None that i can think of right now...well yet so far.....may *sometimes* bounce
This harness is great. My first harness and iam loving it so far. One main reason is because of back support. It fits nice and doesnt hurt ur back as other hanresses. I use the 140 rd. Dye pods and even filled up,,they dont bounce. That maybe because of how tight i strech the velcrow out. If you can put the harness on tight, it will do you good! I would only recommend this harness to back and mid players only. If your a jumpy and hyper player then u might want to consider a JT slammer or redz. The other good thing is that its cheap!!!! I got mine for $22 at paintball gear and it holds 5 pods!!!!!! Veryy good!!
Overall, a very great product!!! This is the only harness i use and dont plan on getting any other one!!! Great harness at a great price!!!!! I give it a 10 out of 10!
4+1 generic pack (horizontal)
redz (well, tried it on... haven't used it on the field yet)
a bunch of crap
holds pods nice & snug
bounces a bit
I've got the 3-pod version & have had it for about 4 months, actually.
There isn't much more i can add that the strengths & weaknesses hasn't already made clear. Maybe elaborate on bounces - if you've got the 150 ct pods like most people do, they'll stick up pretty high when in the pack. That's what causes the bouncing. Having 100 ct pods would solve that problem, but then you'd be carrying less paint. But that's preference & paint usage.
Good pack/harness for the money. I'd still recommend a Redz Dimension over this but those cost about twice as much.
