Not too much into variety when it comes to a harness, what ever works works.
Black Dragun - Dye Xcel 14" & CMI Tru-Flight 14" (had extra cash wanted to see what rifled barrels were all about myself first hand -shrug-). Spyder Venturi bolt.
Well when it comes to harnesses, only thing I will actually preach about is this... "is it affordable?" and "is it durable?"
In that case the Ronin Gear 4+1 harness is both. Its not as ridiculously expensive as alot of the other crap thats out there. I'm merely writing this review for the new guys out there. DON'T LISTEN TO WHAT OTHER PEOPLE TELL YOU! Some guys might try to convince you to buy a certain harness. Truthfully, you may not even need a harness, though you may want one, it helps to have extra ammo on hand if you're in the center of a fire fight. So long as it houses atleast 4 100rnd pods, and can house 1 co2 tank, or an extra pod, then its good to go. If you want a harness, get this, only get something that houses more if you're extremely trigger happy. In that case then I don't think any harness will help you, you'll run out of rounds anyway. =P
With all harnesses, they ristrict your movement slightly, and feel goofy on you since they add bulk. I suggest fanny pack style harnesses for people who crawl around and like to dive forward. If you like to roll and such then don't be surprised to feel the pain of your harness's contents punching into your body.
Its not a neccessity to have in paint ball. It just helps you out if you want more ammo, but adds bulk to your body and trust me when I say every inch of your body is a target so you want the least bulk. I use this harness mainly because its cheap and durable and houses just enough extra ammo for myself. I gave it a 10 rating for price, durability, and adjustability, one size fits all and its not hard to adjust, even easier to ditch if you want to take it off and make a run at a bunker and you don't want to be slowed down, but still remains on and won't come off unless you want it to.
-Tubes and 20oz tank fit snugly
-you can tie a squeegie to the triangular shoulder-strap rings
-doesn't look cheap
-the two velcro straps are almost useless, because there is very little velcro surface on the tank pouch
-unlike in a half-pack, the tubes stick out the sides, making you a larger target
-waist strap could be more padded
The 4 + 1 performed extremely well through an afternoon of indoor paintball. When I played, I almost forgot that I had it on! Going remote has made me a better player.
it is cheap (like 20 bux with 4 100 round tubes!!!)
it works good (hasn't failed me yet)
holds plenty of paint and a tank
not too bulky or heavy
holds the balls and tank very well and they don't fall out or move around
although it may not last as long as some other ones but i haven't had it very long and nothing has happened to mine yet so that is just a speculation
good pack for the price. I'm kidda a bob long kidda guy (kinda big) I was happy, it wasn't to tight.
it says it can hold 140 tubes. I don't see it that way. it would be better if you bought 100 tubes. 140 barely fit. To get a 20 ozer to stay in it kinda a trick. you have to tie the velco strips in a knot round the tank. with 12 ozs you can use the velcro as shown.
its 20 bucks and comes with 4 colored Fat boy 140 round tubes
9 out of 10
