Only holds 4 pods
Well, I got this pack for 30 bucks with 4 pods. So far, it has been a pretty good investment. Its very comfortable if you cinch it down real tight around your midsection. Its also pretty easy to get to the pods if you put it in the right place on your back (For me its really good just above my belt). An interesting side effect of the pack is you'll actually get bounces off of it, which is always nice. Yeah, I did put "only holds 4 pods" as both a weakness and a strength. For some this may not be enough, but for me its just right. My only real gripe about the pack is the pods can slide out the sides if you make an aggressive move sometimes (like a run through or something). I've so far lost about a bag of paint to this (Marbs!), which made me pretty unhappy. But then again, it may not be worked in yet, so hopefully it will improve over time.
If you're on a budget and need a good quality pack, I'd highly recommend the 32 degrees pack. For 30 bucks it definitely cannot be beaten. But, it does have that problem of ejecting your pods if you do something aggressive, which is quite annoying. If you can figure a way around that, its an amazing pack.

Only 4 pods. Pod lids will open if you rub against something just right.
I really liked this pod pack, if you adjusted the belt just right then it fit perfectly at the small of your back and you could forget its there. You have to be careful sometimes though, if you rub up against something just right then all your paint is gone. When diving and sliding it held pretty well but it can ride up to your chin if you don't have it tightened just right. I didn't like how stiff the pod sleeves were, but that is how the pack keeps them in. I did like how it didn't bounce around at all when playing. It fit so securely that i forgot about it and got hit because it was sticking out around a corner.
Don't use it in cold weather. Ever. You pods will swell and you will have a horrible time getting them out. Otherwise it was very comfortable and easy to adjust. It kept my paint secure and ready to be used. More than once i rubbed against a tree and the lids popped open, dupping all my paint. Just turn the lids so they open up or down and it will be fine. It receives a 9 because it only hold 4 pods and it is better for rec ball in my opinion but it is a high quality item.
Does it matter? tippmann 98c, drop forward, 14 inch barrel
i love this pack. the horizontal aspect is great. it holds 4 140 rnd pods, thats 560 paintballs. i dont think the pods are hard to getout , you just cant be a weakling. it does not retract from my movement in any way. i can still run, crawl,. crouch, etc. overall great pack, buy it
buy it, its cheap, durable, and doesnt retract from movement. get it
I played this weekend for the first time with this pack and I like it. I bought the Dye lock lids to go with it and this seemed to work well . No accidental openings. This pack fit very snug and did not bounce around while running and sliding. Getting to the pods was very easy, i like the horizontal better than the vertical. For the price you can't beat it.
I would recommend it for the rec player, it only holds 4 pods.
VEry cheap harness, very nice also. it has a big pad on the back of it so you will feel comfortable. The pods do come open sometimes. I love this harness it is one of my best investments. I highly recommend this to anyone who is new to the game of speedball
I got this pack for my Birthday. I had a small problem though, I had also got a remote for my Co2. My bros 14 oz brass eagle tank fit right in but to get my 20 oz Pure energy in I would have to stretch the holder to where it couldn't hold loaders anymore. First I wanted to try an alternitive. I bought a teeth clamp strap from army-navy store and strapped it to the loop on the top. The problem with that was that my Co2 wouldn't stopbouncing up and down and once it eventually fell out causing me to be shot out. After that game I decided I'd try ways to secure it but no matter what I did I couldn't get it to stay. So, I decided I'd sacrafice a loader instead.I could only get it into the second to the top one and it took alot of sqeezing but I finally got itand now everything works great its very lightweight, out of the way, Blends in, holds enough paint. I'm happy with it and now I wouldn't trade it for another harness in the world.
Buy it, However it holds 14 oz or of equal size tanks best 20 oz will take some muscle (after the first time you get it in it will strech and you won't need to put in as much effort).
