Skinny people will have extra strap space
Heavier than other packs I've held
This is a very nice pack. It fits so nicely that you hardly notice it's there (except for the weight with all that paint in there). The pods are easy to get at and the pockets are tight so there's no chance of them falling out easily. It has a pilow for lower back support if you want it and if you don't it can be removed. The little pocket on the strap is a nice addition. I can hold my allen wrenches, barrel sock, and proflex squeegee. The straight shot squeegee holder is alright, but it doesn't hold it tightly so it hangs down somewhat so it could get in your way. If you're skinny the velcro strap goes way over the place to stick it to so the end sticks out, but you can just tuck it under the back of the pack like i do. This pack itself is heavier than some other similar packs I've held probably from the extra material used, but it's not a huge difference.
I've updated this review recently after many years of use to see if I felt the same about this pack now as I did then. In the long run i can say I've been very happy with this pack.

Simply put, this is the most comfortable pack I have ever owned. I can jump, run, slide and still, this pack doesn't get in the way. The velcro holds everything together and fits perfectly on my hips, so I can bend and crawl with ease as well. This is a 4+3 pack so you can hold enough paint for a 3 or 5 man back player. It's perfect for mid players and some front platers. Squeegee holder was a good idea, as is the extra pocket. It's from Blackstar, not Dye or JT, so it's quality on the DL still.
The only thing you may not like, is that the extra loops for pods are SUPER tight and may be a problem for pulling out pods. This wasn't a problem for me, since I only carry 4 pods and don't use them.
Get it! You won't regret it....it's comfortable and doesn't bounce around when you run. What else do you need?
check it drop forward

omg...it is awsome! i am an insert (mid player), and it is perfect for the position.
it is great cuz i comes w\ 7 pods. i usually dont use them all when i practice just so i no what i go through. it is over all one kick ass pod pack system
noting really... it does get heavy when u fill all the pods. i mean it is cool for me, but a little guy might have a hard time w\ it.
i have a small waist, and the freigin strap goes past where it is supposed to. but im over it.
the 3 pods that go in between the 4 other pods are super tight when u first buy the pack. wash it a couple times and basically wear them in and it will be sweet sweet lovin.
get this pack aight.i mean it is almost perfect for an insert player. maybe not a back unless u are playing like 3 man teams, but def. for a mid player. if u play front, dont get it cuz it is big and ill just end up shootin' it. well it is a really fun pack to have. laters everyone...
ill give it a 3...naww j\k j\k...ill give it a 9 yo...later
This is the best pack ever made. Where do I start?? It holds a lot of paint. It's super comfortable...you don't even notice you're wearing it. It has an adjustable lumbar support cushion. The belt is thick and well padded. It stays exactly where you want it no matter how fast you run or how hard you dive into bunkers. It has a Velcro pocket to hold barrel plugs, tools, whatever. Squeegee holder included. The quality of manufacturing is the best available. This pack completely blows away anything from Redz, RASE, PBJ, or any other top manufacturer.
Buy this pack now...unless you want to waste money. If that's the case, buy something else.

-Holds alot of paint(1050 rounds)
-has a very comfortable gel pad for your lower back
-sick pocket on the side(no more losing stuff)
-not too bulky like other harnesses
-ideal for back players
I only found one problem with it though. the velcro strap is too long for skinny front players like me, It boinces around when I run.
Don't be discouraged by my experience with the harness it is still an excellant harness. It is worth the money. If you are considering buying it than you know a good product when you see one. I geuss I should eat more or something. The matrix rules!!!!!

Holds Up To 7 Pods
I used the Blackstar Action Pak for about 3 months and it served well until I switched to a Redz 3+2 pack. It was very comfortable and carried up to 7 pods at one time. It was easy to access my pods and keep playing while on the field. If I had another $25, I would get another one from my local shop.
Extremely Comfortable!!!!!! Does up Tight and Snug and does not move. Extra Heavy Duty construction, this pack will never fall apart. Really easy to get the pods out. The 3 elastic straps are Really tight, takes a bit to get the pods in. But this is a GOOD thing! Other paks are a bit loose, so you have to push the pods all the way in so they won't fall out when running/moving. You then have to push on the top to get them out. Blackstars are tight enough you can leave the pods hanging half way out and they stay there!!! Easy to grab and pop lids... Great feature!!!
A lil akward trying to use squeegee holder, but hey, practice make perfect :)
Best Pack I have owned. I bet one of the best out there. Even if you never carry seven pods,
this is a super comfy 4 pack.
I picked mine up off E-bay for $29. You can't beat that!!!! Shopp around.

Awesome pack! It blows away the Extreme Rage pack I had. This thing is comfortable. It has little extras like a squeegie holder, a barrel plug pocket. Pretty adjustable. I'm a real skinny dude and it fits alright. Can adjust to size "huge", and there's even an add-on strap you can buy if you want your pet elephant to wear it. But for most people it fits. Nice pack if you like to spray-and-pray, it holds 7 pods. For less paint-happy people, it can be a four pod. Also has this little adjustable pad in the small of your back for support. It does help a little. Did I say it was comfy?
Not anything really. Price was $50, but not bad for this nice of a pack.
This pack is the most comfortable; versatile; best looking pack there is. Thats all there is to it! Nothing comes close to it right now. Not even redz. Black Star is obviously doing something very right; and i think that redz and other pack companies need to learn from it. This pack is a must for anyone.
nuthin at all! This pack ripps ass!
This pack is the best ever. I have owned one now for coming on 10 months now; and it has never failed me( VERY DURABLE). Everybody needs to get one of these. Anyone out there that is very aggressive needs to get one of these packs 4 sure.
