genex 4+1 podpack- more paint, but it broke in a few months
remote with slide check
20 oz co2
cmi thunder pig barrrel 12 in
Non removible belt, bounces
well I got the new specialops 2+1 pod pack so here is a review. the pod pack is perfect for a 20oz co2 tank and it would probibly also work with most hpa tanks. it holds the pods in speedball style +1 holders, but the ends are a tough fabric that holds the pod holders open so you can slip the pod back in with one hand and without looking. also in the way the back of the tank pouch is sewn to the belt there is a pocket that will hold a barrel swab perfectly. some may compain that it only carrys 2 pods, but how much do you need for one game of capture the flag. it is lightweight so it is perfect for daggers, or light sabers like me. the only disadventage is that you can't use your own belt and the one that comes with it is black so it may (though not likely) give you position away.
: EDIT : I have used it in a game now and it bounces around alot more than other pod packs I have used. new rating 8.
this is a great pack for someone who doesn't need to much paint I give it a 8/10
8 out of 10

Pods slip out easily
This pack is built tough. It's made of quality materials and put together well.
I bought 2 pods form spec ops in the same order as my harness. The pods slip out when full. 2 or 3 steps is all I could make before they were on the ground. The elastic just isn't tight enough.
I was albe to stop the pods from falling out by wrapping them in hockey grip tape. It made them a little fatter and rough on the elastic. No problems since then.
The reviews on their site seem to be mostly favorable but there were a few with the same problem I had.
A good product but not a finished product. Get it if you want to see for yourself as Spec Ops has a very liberal return policy but make sure to check out some pictures and judge for yourself on the design.
The construction is top notch like I said before. The only downfall is that just a small velcro cap would be a tremendous improvement. The elastic just isn't strong enough to hold the plastic pods in.
