Does not fit well
You can use this pack to transport your gear to games. However, there is little room for large gear, like markers or barrels. There's a clip for goggles, but that means they're out in the open and could get damaged.
This is a very large pack with lose fitting straps, Im 6'3", 190lbs, and this pack fits me very loosely. I think its probably designed for plus sized players. Because its so big it really constricts movement and is TERRIBLE for speed-ball/air-ball games. There are alot of zippered pockets, but you CANT get to half of them when your in a game without taking the pack off, and if you ever try that, its suicide. Even thought its a big pack, the pod holsters are really small, even for 100 round pods. In a game its tricky getting them out and then getting them in after. The stitching is very poor and many seams are coming undone, also, one pod holster has come completely undone. It was advertised to have a squeegee holder, but I haven't found it yet.
Overall, I did not like this pack. After buying it i regretted it. There are much better packs out there, but if you like the idea, go for it. Its lost points for its size, its fit, the craftsmanship, the ergonomics and the overall design. But it gains points on style and the fact that it holds pods, but thats it.
My advice is to look for another pack.
this thing is the most awesome thing ive ever used. im borrowing it from my friend to play winter ball with. Theres a place near me that rents out nitro tanks. winterball kicks butt, it holds all i need, paint, CO2, and everythig inbetween. My mom took D-rings, put them all over the place. now i can hang paint grenades off of them. put the pinj on the D-ring, pull the grenade right off, and chuck it
BUT BUY BUY IT i wish it was mine, i have no idea where i could get one, so if you know, PM me please
Tippmann 98 Custom w/ Smart Parts Boss Progressive 12" barrel, double trigger, 12v Revolution hopper, 32 Degrees coiled remote, Response.
Extreme tactical advantage. Can carry massive quantities of paint out to the field and takes the load of a 20oz. off your arm if used with a remote sytem. Pzckets on the side are perfect for storing 2 to 3 Meteor shower grenades to get you out of a tight place in a hurry. Normally I use the pocket on the other side for tools/oil and such, or a walkie talkie if you choose to go that route. I personally only usually caryy 400 extra rounds of paint out with me, because in reality I never blew more than 350+ in an actuall game before.
Also it comes with superior stitching and fabric. Not that cheap crap that I found on my old Brass Eagle 4+1 harness. Extreamly reliable.
Nothing at all that I can think of.
Great productsthat boast extream tactical advantage over your competitors. And carries enough extra paint,.................to get the job done. :-)

Adco Hot Shot sight
Looks very cool (makes me look like I am a SWAT team member)
protects my back from some very nasty shoots(but the balls break easier... but if you get shot in the back you will usually get shot multiple times)
Can hold 6 tubes plus my 20oz well. I can also use my remote perfectly!
tubes can have trouble getting in... but as some people mentioned you can cut the ends of the tube holders!
I think it is an awesome buy for 30$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lots of storage space, more than I can figure out what to do with. Spreads weight around, really comfortable.
Tough to get guppies back in during action, maybe a problem that will go away as it gets broken in. Straps that hold guppies are too long or the velcro is too short and/or located too close to opening. They will not fasten tightly with 100 rd loaders.
For the money, a very good product. I think I will shorten the straps that hold guppies some, they allowed one of mine to open during combat and lost about 20 balls. I hop ehtat either the pockets for this break in some or I get better at re-installing the guppies as the lower ones are a pain to use during a firefight. The upper ones are OK to get at though so I am taking paint from them first and using the lower ones to refill between games.
It is comfortable for me, I'm only about 5'10" but larger and it fits OK. The strap around the chest could be shortened a little bit, the ends are too long.
Well made and very flexible, I may even go remote to use the extra pocket for that function even though my marker is already plenty light.
--This is a follow up review after using this product in a game.
My previous inspection aside, after using this vest I must say that the quality of construction sucks. I purchased 2 vests for 22.00 each, however I have no doubt that the original price tag was outrageous for the quality of this item. No wonder they went out of business for trying to sell this junk. It is liken to the quality of the cheap harnesses put out by I&I and is worth no more than the price I actually paid for. In both harnesses the guppie holders are ill manufactured--being inconsistent in size--a few being too small to fit a standard 100 rnd guppie. The sewing construction is irregular and weak in some cases. The size of the vest is meant for large people, but is also frustrating as through proper use of velcro and better buckles the vest could truly have been made for a universal fit.
After loading up the vest with 100 rnd guppies, and a 20 oz tank I played a single 30 min game. The stitching for the paint holders is coming loose, there are several tears along the upper harness section due it the incapability of carrying 600 rnds of paint, and a 20 oz tank. I wouldn't consider this a tactical vest as the pockets are just way to hard to access without having to remove the whole thing--but this is just a trifle of a problem. This vest could have been so much better had they paid proper attention to the most important part of it--the paint holders. It is just way too difficult to remove, and insert a guppie during play--it does stretch out over time--but it also weakens the stitching. Take the advice of a previous poster--either remove the paint holders and sew in some new ones--or do what I did and remove the bottom half completely and sew on a new bottom harness.
This vest is by all means a poorly constructed good idea!
