Totally innovative to paintball, this lightweight durable bottle covering gives you protection and secure shouldering. The designers built two models for the player that wants one extra guppy and that just wants protection.
- Strong reinforced nepprene body construction
- Stylish repetitive logo designed interior.
- Heat molded shock absorbant padding.
The Empire Tank Cover is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
-Zipper is the best
-Grip on the inside
-None if you can front the money
The thickest neoprene cover ive seen or have had. The pad on the bottom of the cover is the best thing ever when using a power angle because it is comfortable and grips awesomely. The 'empire logos' on the inside of the tank cover holds the tank cover in place well but is a bit obsessive and is not really necessary to put your logo where almost no one will see it. Empire, why not on the outside? That out of the way, functionally it is the best tank cover there is protection of your tank size, looks, and grip on your shoulder. It is great when you just have to undo a small part of Velcro that only holds the zipper up and pull down the zipper in stead of a huge strip of Velcro that doesn't usually hold well. Also, the cardboard that holds the tank shape while on the shelf has a quote from "The Prince", which was a book written by Niccolo Machiavelli in the late 15th century or early 16th century about how to run your "empire" if your a prince for you simpletons, which is not necessary.
All in all it is defiantly better that the dye rhino cover and is a it more padded.
Great to buy for the protection of a carbon fiber tank. I would even just buy it for the grip on an aluminum tank if you have one.

I got this tank cover for Christmas in '05, its lasted very well, nothing is wrong with it.
the tank has a nice amount of padding, the zipper stays up very nice due to the Velcro at the top
its a little bit of a squeeze to get it on but after you get it on it fits very nicely to the tank, no huge gaps between the cover and tank
there really isn't too much to say about it, it does its job.
the only problem i've had is screwing off the tank, it is either very difficult or you have to take the cover off. there is not enough grip on the inside of the cover, its not even that big of a deal, just annoying sometimes
Like i said, it does its job, nothing too speacial about it, they should be inexpensive now. well worth the money.

Looks, helps your aiming.
None so far
So I bought this cover from local shop. I got it for 38€. It really helps you to keep your gun steady when aiming. Does not slip! I really like the looks of the cover, its so nice in all black! I think it looks better than the dye rhino cover , that's because i picked it.
The cover feels very thick so I think it will last long.
I recommend this product to anyone who wants a nice looking cover and hates when bottle slips when aiming.
I recently got my first carbon fibre wrapped tank from Guerrilla Air, and i knew that to protect my investment i had to buy a strong tank cover. So i Bought the Empire Bottle Glove.
My first impression of the cover was that it was really nice and it looked like it could defenitly withstand hits. The padding on this tank is nice and thick, especially around the butt of the tank and the sides where the double "E" logos are. Overall the presentation of this tank cover is very nice.
The tank is also very functional. Like i said before, the padding is excellent, but Empire also incorperated a zipper that runs the lengh of the bottle, which allows for easy access to the Hydro date on the bottle.
The only place that I found where the Bottle Glove failed is with the grips on the inside of the cover. The grips are supposed to hold the bottle inplace during play, which they do very well, but i had problems when trying to disconnect my Air Source from my marker. When i went to disconnect my tank, I attempted to unscrew it, but the only thing that moved was the tank cover itself, the tank never actually turned. So instead i have to unzip and remove the cover and unscrew tthe tank. I dont think that this is that big of a deal, but it's just a slight inconvienence that shouldnt happen.
Overall though, the Empire Bottle Glove is a great tank cover that will serve you well and should last you a long time.

Ok my friend shoots an angel and has a 68 4500 tank so I wass shootin his gun and noticed how well the tank gripped my shoulder. Then I looked at it and noticed damn it looks great. Well then i played with it somemore and it didnt move and didnt hurt shoulder like some other tanks did. This cover was light although most are. This is also a pretty thick tank cover that protects the tank. He has had this cover for a year and no rips or flaws. The tank sayed on my shoulder the whole day.
this is a great cover buy it if you have the money. I'm buying my self the 06 version in a couple of days.
