I have been using the Empire 4+3 pack for a while now and really wanted something that held a little more paint. A bunch of people I know recommended the NXE and they were right. It's a fantastic pack.
Unlike the Empire pack I've had problems to date with the "plus" pods in the elastic strips. The reason for me to change packs was that the pods in those elastic loops would often pop out whenever I would slide or fall (on purpose of course).
Really narrow people might want to avoid the 5 pod pack though, it is pretty wide on the body unless you have some girth to you.
I suggest this product as a great pack and urge everyone to beat down your local store's door until they sell you one.

Quality, durability, capacity, built in back support feature and a great design.
Size of the belt is not for youths, high capacity could weigh you down.
This is a wonderful product, the harness is made of high quality material and it shows. The main 5 pod holder are rigid and will not lose its shape even after washing, leaving me to suspect it is a plastic frame rather than cardboard. The capacity of this harness is amazing, you can play mule for your team and is great for back players. With 11 pod capacity you can carry well over half a case of paint, this way you don't have to guard your case from thieves. Of course you do not need to use 11 pods, it looks great with just 5, the additional 6 holders are generally out of view and does not affect the overall look of the harness. Everyone who's seen my harness is amazed at the quality and capacity. The top of the main pod holder has an elastic band with a small neoprene pad to grip the ends of the pod, this helps act as an ejection system. The front locking mechanism has 2 elastic bands to it, the first part secures the harness to the body, the second elastic band helps tighten the belt acting as a back brace, if you have back problems this belt is perfect for you.
The downside of this harness is that it can heavier than other harnesses, the higher quality materials will weigh more than some cheap nylon harness. The max capacity will carry approximately 1540 paintballs, thats like 75% of a case, which is about 9-10 lbs of paint, it will weigh you down when you run, but it is very secure, you will not feel it slip. The size suggests it is made for an adult, although not oversize, it is definitely not for children or possibly short/small players as the harness may wrap around or possibly cover up most of the torso area and might restrict some mobility.
Excellent quality, versatility (back brace feature and range of pod capacity) and durability (will stand up to washing), makes this a must have for people who like to carry a lot of paint or have back problems. I would recommend that children and smaller players try this harness out before buying it, if possible. Most people will not have any problems with this belt but smaller players might have some discomfort due to its size.

Bonebreak Freestyle - Freak kit - Empire b - Air america tank
Strong velcrow - Light - Durable
Bounces around abit - Flaps get in the way alot
well, I baught this used of a teammate and it came in 100% condition. The velcrow on this pack holds VERY well, but still manages to bounce around alot with a higher number of pods, which is expected using that many. The only thing i found seriously wrong with this pack is that the ejectors didnt work as well as my other ER pack.
Java rec pack
Generic brands when I was a noob
E-99 Avant with a 16 inch Nightstick barrel, Shocktech Superfly bolt, Dye Sticky Grip
Ion Pro with rail and On/Off ASA, Freak Barrel, CP Blade Trigger, CP Reg, Halo B hopper and a 3000 PSI HPA Tank from Pure Energy
Holds a wide range of pods
Easy to Grab pods
This is a very well built pack, it hold alot of pods, if your playing back you can load it up all the way, but if you need to play front you can just carry 3 or 5 pods, its so sweet, very good for Speedball players who play different positions
Very comfortable, I played with this pack for about 6 hours and it felt fine, my back didn't hurt and it stayed put, I had to adjust once and that was it, it has these ball things that make it comfortable for you back, its real nice
Easy to pull the pods, you just pull the tab down and the pod comes right out, fast and easy, and the sleeves are tight but loose, so the pods stay put but are pulled out easy, and its easy to reach all of the pods
This is a very nice pack, but I would recommend when you first get it to put your pods in there to "break" everything in, the straps for the pods are kind of stiff, but leave the pods in for a day or two and you'll be fine
Very nice pack, great for Speedballers who play different positions, its very comfotable, and stays put, even when all of the pods are in there, nice pack, Good job Nxe
Tippmann A-5, Flatline Barrel and Response trigger
Strong, Solidly construcked, confortable and sturdy
Pods are sometimes difficult to get it.
I recieved this battlepack free due to a weeks delay on one of my orders and if it was up to me i would not have ever dreamed of buying such an expensive battlepack. Whe battlepack is very stirdily constructed and has non-stick rubber throughout so the pods never move in their sleavings. When fully loaded the pack does not shift atall due to the well designed belt system and the pods stay tightly together and do not rattle.
Overall an excellent battlepack, the best, in my oppinion on the market if a little overpriced.
