The NXe Tactical Harness is the culmination of extensive thought and design of products in the Paintball industry. We took the elements that have made us a success in the tournament market, and applied them to the scenario market. We also added specialized features, based on our knowledge and experience in scenario games, big games, and woods ball. We developed a vest which is both accommodating to the varying needs of the scenario games player, and functional for the woods ball player.
The vest is designed for maximum adjustability and user comfort. Most notably and importantly, we have included the same four piece belt system that made our tournament packs the most popular pack in paintball, in the tactical vest. This means that even when the vest is loaded with 100 oz of water, 12 lbs of paint, and a large air tank, the weight is comfortably distributed between your waist and shoulders. A non slip rubber neoprene grip pad keeps the vest from slipping in addition to providing lumbar support for the user. Adjustable ventilated shoulder straps allow the vest to be adjusted to fit most users. The front sections are connected by three adjustable buckles straps, completing the range of adjustability provided by the vest.
We developed specialized features for the use of the remote line system; these include securing straps on the rear of the vest to keep your remote line closely tethered to the vest, preventing it from being snagged on brush or trees. These straps are located on either side of the vest, allowing for use by both the right and left handed player. To house your air tank we added a large pouch with adjustable straps to secure your tank against the harness. This pouch will hold up to a 92 ci tank, though some 114 ci tanks will fit as well...
We added a large pocket to hold a water bladder, which has a PP webbing strap to hold the bladder upright and prevent collapse. On either side of the bladder pouch, elastic loops direct the water tube to the front of the vest, keeping if from hanging loose, or getting snagged on branches. Below all of the elastic loops on the vest are pp webbing loops which allow heavier objects such as a holster, or the pin of a grenade or smoke bomb to be attached to the vest. Larger elastic loops will also hold objects such as a flashlight. Nine pockets made of durable, pvc backed nylon on the front of the vest serve to hold mission papers, maps, tools, batteries, or whatever your mission may require.

Some pods may not fit properly
I had recently aquired a 114 CI tank and needed a way to carry it on me while out on the field. I couldn't find any MOLLE pouches that would work and stumbled accross this vest in a B/S/T section of one of the paintball forums I frequent.
The vest is a one size fits most style. Those who have a smaller frame may find the vest a bit too loose even when adjusted all the way down. However the quick fix for this is to wear a Camel Bak or similiar hyrdation system under the vest, instead of placing the bladder in the provided pouch. Even still the front can be slightly loose. However during the hot summer months this can be a good thing.
The hydration bladder pouch is rather large. It can accomodate the 3 liter bladder I have for my Camel Bak. The tank pouch is large enough that my 114 CI tank easily slips in. The straps on the back of the vest hold the tank in securely after they have been properly adjusted.
I really can't comment on the rear multi purpose pouch for use on the playing field. However it is great for packing a remote line and gloves for transporting them to the field.
The nine front pockets are great. However the top left and middle left pockets could have been seperated by maybe a quarter inch more. The last big game I attended I was able to carry five small smoke grenades and have room for my pull through squeegie and my barrel cover to have their own spot.
The internal elastic belt is constructed exactly as NXE's pod packs. For players with a smaller frame this is just what is needed to keep the vest from moving all over the place. The vest still moves around on me a little, but not enough to be an inconvience.
As stated in the weaknesses some pods may not fit or have a rather tight fit with the pod holders. Mostly I have noticed this with View Loader pods that have a wider grip area. Also the NXE logo's could have been a bit more subdued. However with enough time crawling around on the field they will start to subdue with wear and tear.
I am going to touch basis on the storage pockets once more. With all the room in the rear multi purpose pouch and the nine pockets on the front, you can pack many of your field essentials into this vest. If you fly to events or drive a small car this will help cut down on the ammount of luggage you need to bring with you.
In conclusion this ia a great vest for the money. I fyou don;t like to carry a bunch og bags with you anwywhere this one will work out nively

Big NXe letters
Very good vest. Lots of storage, and it's very comfortable and durable. The really only down side to the vest is how hot it can make you. It needs a more breathable mesh. The NXe letters arn't really camoflauged, they kind of stand out. Other than that, i would recomend this to any woods player looking for a decent vest for a good price.
Like i said above, recomended to any player looking for a vest that is pretty good for the price

Has the capabilities to carry a bunch of paint, water bladder, and plenty of pockets
No pod ejection system on vest itself. May get hot in warm weather.
Very nice vest, well built, decent price compared to other places. Vest is on the heavy side empty and will only get worst as you ad over 1000 rounds of paint, water, tank and everything else cluttered around the house, but it does have a belt that distributes some of the weight to the hips. Has no pod ejection system, might not be a problem for some, but would have been a nice feature. Even though the vest is fairly new, I would like to see some other color variations.
Nice vest. Haven't owned any other vest but would recommend to others for the price.

Could have came with hydration system
I was looking around for a vest because I was sick of my regular pod harness. I wanted something that can hold lots of things. So I looked around and I saw many vest on Special Ops for like $150+ and they weren't even that great. So then I saw this vest on Action Village. It looked very eye appealing to me. There is a great amount of pockets on this thing. It hold 6 pods or 9 with NXE adapter. The camo color looks great and its made out of quality material. There is also a location of Hydration system and your tank. The only downside could be the weight of it, its a little heavy w/o paint, but not too bad. Also, if your on the skinny/average built side, it may be a little loose, but there also is side adjustable straps.
Go out and get it. This thing will be great for big games and it has everything you'll need in a scenario game. For only $100, you get what you paid for.
