The 4+3 harness is specifically designed to hold q-pods. It is made of the highest quality reinforced nylon canvas and is ultra rugged in design.
It features the easy to use vertical velcro and elastic holders. Four of the holders are held open by reinforced nylon, and are designed for easy removal and insertion of q-pods. The other three holders are elastic and are not intended to have q-pods reinserted during game play.
Materials: reinforced nylon canvas, velcro, and elastic sides
Capacity: holds 7 q-pods total
The AIC Q-Loader 4+3 Harness are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.

Wide waist band
This pack fits Qpods beautifully without modification. When it was first received it was a little flat but leaving the pods in it for a while fixed that. Now the wide waist band is a plus and a minus.
Plus: distributes weight good and good grip to not move around. If you are on the big or overweight size the wide band makes you look better reducing gut spillout.
Minus: I have a smaller/avg size waist so the wide band almost feels like a girdle ( although I could never really tell you how that feels) but it is flexible enough not to restrict movement though. When I use this in a game and maybe I'll like the wider waist band.
I recommend this harness to any Q loader owner. No Q owner needs to loose a $20 pod. I give it a 9 untill I use it in a game.

Holds q-pods comfortably and securely
Sometimes difficult to retrieve or replace pods
The pods in the Q-Loader system are larger than a normal 140rd pod. Many harnesses will not be able to accomodate the increased size of a q-pod. This harness was designed by AIC (the manufacturer of the q-loader) to securely hold the q-pods.
The pods are held vertically and are accessed from the bottom. Velcro closures ensure that you won't drop your expensive q-pod somewhere in the field.
I would have preferred a horizontal orientation similar to the Redz Omni pack. I normally reload with my left hand. I can do this twice, but after that, I have to switch hands or move the filled pods to the left.
The pack also has three elastic loops for holding more pods, but I have never used that feature.
The setup is comfortable. Much better than most cheap packs. There's ample padding and the wide belt gives good support.
There's no option for holding a remote tank.
I would have liked to be able to get the pack in camo. The q-loader is primarily for woodsballers or scenario players, and we could use some camo options.
If you need to hold your q-pods, then this is the pack for you.
This has got to be the best pod pack out there to date. It doesn't even feel like I have it on. I'm 6'5" 285 lbs and this pack fits like a glove. I used it with my 98c qloader system but when I sold the marker and qloader and I kept the pack. I have a brand new nxe pack that I've had for 3 months but my qloader pack is so sturdy and comfortable I will probably wear it until it falls apart and then I'll probably order another.
I recommend this pack for us larger ballers. It's by far the most comfortable pack in the market.
Very comfortable, fast access to pods, very light- fully loaded, looks fantastic.
Ever since I got the q loader system I couldnt find a harness that would fit the q pods just right, except the rap 4 tack harness that was $90 , and it sucks. So
I bought the q harness and its flawless the pack is super light, even with 7 pods, you hardly notice your wearin it. And you can also fit regular 150 round tubes in it and they fit just as good. Wich is great if you switch beetween speed ball and woods ball. The elastic for the +3 pods needs to be worn in because its a pain to get them in and out.As far as 150s, the elastic is a dream come true, they fit perfect, they slide in and out like butter. But back to the design of the harness ,each pod slot has padding behind it so it molds to your back. The harness is also very thick so wear and tear, makes this pack tank proof. Ive only had this pack a week and Ive already given it a savage beating, between bushes, diving and lots of dirt this is the best pack to date. And the best part of all is it was only $40
This pack by far is the best designed and manufactured. And I highly recomend this to eveybody who has a q loader or just 150 round tubes.

Could use a tank storage feature, but that's not really necessary
After buying my Qloader, I realized that finding a harness that would fit the awkward size of the Qpods would be a challenge. I shopped around, and while I found lots of other harnesses that can work, I didn't find any that were really made for the Qloader's pods. I ordered the XL size, since I'm a rather large person.
This harness is extraordinarily comfortable. Even with five fully loaded pods in it, it's still almost like wearing nothing. It doesn't move around on your back, and all the pods are easily within reach. I can remove any pod I want and replace it in any slot I want, all by touch. Even the elastic "+3" slots aren't too hard to master. Best of all, because the Qpods don't have hinges, I don't have to worry about accidentally opening a pod and spilling paint everywhere.
If you have a Qloader, buy this NOW! It is an EXCELLENT harness, and so far it's the only one designed specifically for Qpods. I love this harness!
