Too hard to place pods back in the 2 elastic bands
I recently bought this pack and i love it with the exception of the +2 part of it. It just to hard to put the pods back in the elastic bands in the middle of paintballing. Overall this is a great pack. Its lightweight and easy to grab a pod fill up and put it back with the exception of the bands. Pods will even stay in the hold with the strap open.
I definitely recommend this pack for someone who wants a great pod pack but doesn't want to haul loads of paint on their back. I kinda wish i got the bigger pack though so i could carry more paint. I give it a 9 out of 10 because you cant put the pods back in the elastic straps in the middle of the game.

Dye attack pack
Lock lid pods
Shocker black 05

holds pods tight
many straps to hold it tight on your body
Not very much padding but it was still very comfortable
Our backman has a 5+4 pack just like this and one day I got to messing with it enough that I asked him if I could play a game with it to see how it was. It held the pods tight so there was no moving around or shaking of the paint. This limited the noise to almost nothing. The ejection straps are nice but they caught me off guard since I was not used to them. They will fall out of the packer without you even pushing on the pod. After I got used to the ejector straps(pulling the Velcro off and waiting for the pod to fall into my hand I found that it took little effort and increased speed while reloading. I got caught in a small stand up bunker that I didn't exactly fit well behind, I was still able to reload because I didn't have to fight the pack to get my pod there's no more motion that moving your hand when taking a pod out, its great! This pack also had many straps that pull it to your body tight, they stretch while play to insure a sung fit all thought play(my dye attack pack also dose this as well as the circle). There wasn't very much padding but it was still very comfortable without anything putting pressure on your body. Its made very tall(from the bottom which is about where the pods lid is when in the packer to almost the top of the pod) this makes it very stable and comfortable. This pack has been in use for almost 3 months and still shows no signs of wear.
Durable comfortable pack made by empire with the ablity to reload fast with the ejection straps for a decint price. At least go out and try one on it will have you hooked the min you realize how comfortable it is.

Some $15 generic pack... downright awful, compared to this.
If you REALLY wanna see my setups... which I doubt, go to:
- VERY durable
- Excellent fit and support
- Easy to take out/add pods
- No pockets (Doesn't matter to me)
This pack, along with the C5 and NXe, is among THE BEST OUT THERE. The comfort and adjustability is insane, and the huge front elastic strap ensures that the pack will lie flat against your back, even when bending over (as opposed to most other packs that will stick up in the air). Another key feature is how well the pod-release system works. When you pull the strap, the pod is literally ejected out an inch or two into your waiting hand, saving a lot of time. This pack is also made of some very durable stuff, will all the seams double and triple-stiched. The lack of any pockets doesn't matter to me, since my pants have more than enough.
UPDATE: Sadly, over the course of about 8 months, the velcro on this pack seems to have literally disentegrated. I hope Empire has fixed this issue, because if not, that's uncool...
In the meantime, look into the newer CP and Syndicate packs. Same exact design, higher quality.
Low profile, light-weight, awesome back support (no more back pain for me at the end of the day), and a really nicely-working "pod-ejection" system. This has to be one of the best packs I've ever used.
UPDATE: Until it fell apart, that is.

ICD Freestyle silver to black fade with an evo II. used to have a tippmann 98 Custom with a response trigger, J&J 2 pc. stainless 14 inch barrel, Viewloader Revolution loader, low pressure kit, Crossfire 3000 psi 68 ci preset, and double trigger
Holds 140 pods, keeps them in unlike jt tournament harness, dont bounce around
Slide around on waist when crawling, ejecto pod system, no squeegee pockets
I got this harness last Xmas and it's great. holds 3 in the sleeves and 2 in the loops. But i play Xball so i only use the 3 sleeves. The good things about this harness is that it is durable and does not bounce around your waist when you run, it is pretty light and is breathable, and the pods have a very tight fit. The few bad things about this harness is when you are trying to reload and open up on of the sleeves, if you dont grab it right away it will fly out of the sleeve either into your hand or onto the ground. Also if you play front like me and are crawling around in the snake, the harness tends to slide around to your waist.
Also there are no pockets for squeegees. I cut the top part off of the harness so the pod sticks out instead of being wrapped around that elastic stuff
Overall this is a good harness for any player, its does its job.

Blue to black Dragun Tes w/ custom grips
20 oz. co2
empire reloader II
custom drop (real sweet)
made by empire
The elastic is real tight at first
This is a great pack. It is really comfortable and it fits great.The price is a little steep for a harness if you ask me. but I guess that is what they run for. It looks awesome and holds all the paint i need. It is pretty simple to get pods in and out especially after you break in the elastic. I had a hard time getting the pods into the two elastic straps. after it breaks in a little bit there is absolutly nothin stoppin you from wearing this thing all day long if you want to.
This is a great harness. it is worth the price if you sling alot a of paint and nead a strong reliable good looking harness to hold all your extra paint in
A-5, 4 peice empire barrel kit, empire belt, dye lock lid pods, an E-grip, a double trigger,
It is a great belt very durable and long lasting.
The middle pod holders are hard to use.
I think its a great belt it shoots the pods to you when you need them and its great I have dye lock lid pods and they fit in it and the bigger the pod the better cause the more bungie pushes it out , but the pod holder between the three main ones are hard to use.
I think it is a great belt and well worth the price.
98c (Soon to be a Shocker!!!)
Nice gel supports
Empire logos everyware
This is the best harness EVER!
This is the most comforatable harness ever!
This is a must buy for rec players and tourney players
Empire really put some hard work into this product
If there was one downside I would say that empire put to many logos on the harness
The bask support is made of gel, for the most comfortabvle harness ever!!!
This harness doesn's slip down your back when running even my dad couldn't even rip it off me.
This is the best harness in the history of paintball!!!
