Crossfire 68/4500 (800psi)
very comfortable, never bounches. good size. removable padding helps with cleaning.
Non really. sept it would be cooler if it was a 4/3.
Go buy its its like 40$ cnd. And it came fast and it was just what i wanted. for 40$ u cant really go wrong, I couldnt find a cheaper one for that price and that comfort. The pods are easy too remove. little hard too put them back in fast, but who put there pods back in during a game.
Great product, go get one. Its not as high class as reds or others but for 40$ cnd. its have the price for a great pack. very comfortable. only down fall is it doesnt come in 4/3
10 out of 10

Uncomfortable, takes time to get used to, very big.
This is a good pack for a front man or recball player. It can be a little tough playing with due to the cramping nature of it (it can get in the way if you are leaning hard). I sometimes take off the back support so I can get tighter into my bunker. Everyone who says it's hard to get pods back in are scrubs, I use pods with two layers of tape on them (so I know which ones are mine if I do need to drop them, and also to see if anyone stole them) and I can slide them back up nice and easy. It also needs some breaking in. In my opinion, this was designed for 17 years+ because I am 15 and it is still lose if I wrap it around all the way.
Great,feels nice, very comfy, holds any sized pods.fits anyone
none so far
Since I started playing speed ball, the viewloader pack wasn't cutting it. In fact, stay away from it. I found this one at an Army Navy store for 20 bucks cause it had been taken out of the package. Then I picked up some 140 rd. tubes at my local field for 2 bucks apiece. it is GREAT! It fits anyone, has a neat little pocket to hold barrel plug/condom. money, ect. Very good for speedball and it doesn't get in the way. Pods can be hard to get back in but I usually just either throw them on the ground or else put them back in upside down to hold them, plus this lets me know which ones i've used.
All in all it is a great pack. I recommend it to anyone.

Very comfortable, holds plenty of balls for rec play, looks sleek
Hard to clean, balls will not bounce off it, hard to put pods back
I play rec ball just about every weekend, and before using this product I was using a cheapo viewloader thing that only holds 2 100rnd pods and is stapperd on by a belt that comes with it. Well I decided to get this new one because basically I was running out of paint when playing speedball, and to my suprise it was far more comfortable. Because it comes with a little back support pad, that cushions your lower back (feels just like a back support strap), I would say wearing it is almost more comfortable than wearing nothing at all. Plus there is a little pouch that will securley hold keys and money in.
Also for the general purpose of the weekend warrior, four 140rnd pods is more than enough to get you through a game. The only problem is that once a pod is used, you would like to idealy just throw it on the ground after loading. Well I quickly had 3 pods stolen or lost that way so I had to teach myself how to strap these things back in after loading. Its not a big deal, but it is annoying and you can lose your concentration pretty easily if you get frustrated.
Another minor problem is that if a ball hits it anywhere, you can pretty much assure a break. Also it is difficult to clean mud and paint from it, but that only really matters if you are a clean freak like me (I spend 2-3 hours cleaning my gear after each day of play).
If you are a normal rec-ball player and don't want to worry about running out of paint this product is definitley for you. At 30$ it won't hurt your wallet much either. I give this product a 9 because it's not perfect but has more than lived up to my expectations.
The harness is a little uncomfortable, especially while actually playing. The strap goes around your stomach, much like a girdle. It kind of restricts your breathing, because it goes right around your breadbasket. It holds 4 140 round pods, which is good. It has the nice 32* logo on the front (which may be good or bad, depending on your preference) and it seems pretty sturdy.
All in all, its a good buy. I picked one up for around $25 shipped.
