The lids pop open and you loose all your paint.
I bought 4 of these played one day and one broke when I fell back on it. I then bought another one, (A mistake). I used them in a NXE 4x1 and kept loosing most of my paint every time i pulled on of these pods out they would come open or already be open. I was hot. What tould happen is the pods would get shoved up insie the carrier by me moving and squatting. the NXE would press on the lds and the lids would pop open or be loose. When i removed the velcro to open to grab a pod all my paint would fall out. This happend at least 5 -6 times.
These pods are flimsy I got shot in on and a few of my painf balls broke inside. It took me a while to clean up the balls and the tube itself. I was ready top throw these things in the garbae. After i got home I ordered Far boy Pods and they are much thicker and better than the 32 deg.
Dont waist your money spend a little more for a stiffer pod

12oz or 20oz tank
Co2 (for now)
Very Durable plastic
Good flip lid
I found none
These pods are a pretty good deal. I bought four of them in a kit that I got with my Spyder. They are made of very durable plastic, which I found out after I took a few shots at them with my marker. For 75cents per tube I really don't think you could ask for more.

very tough shell
Cut my finger trying to open it one time
I like these pods. They are solid and they have well-functioning lids with a good spring and it fits tight when you close it. the only bad thing i have found is that i cut my finger about 1 and 1/2 inches long and it hurt like hell for a few days but it healed. The ones i got were 100 round pods with a rounded bottom and a semi-clear top and a black shell. i only got 2 because i dont have a pack and dont need one beacuse i like to move around a lot and not use 70 bucks worth of paint a game.If i ever do need a pod for like the last game of the day and i have 300 balls left i have made a duct tape fitting for it to be stuck into that also connects to the air tank( kinda like the empire tank glove with pod-holder on the bottom... only its made out of duct tape) the 100 round size if perfect for the length of the tank.
Overall this is a good pod... just be careful you might want to put something on the edge or sand it down like i did so the sharp edge isnt vulnerable
Lid is a little to easy to open
I had some of these laying around a I tested them out. Basically they are just a pod and nothing more. The good points are the low price and the easy to open lid. I didn't like the weak plastic - it flexes to easily and is vulnerable to breakage. The two-piece construction isn't as good as a one-piece. The lid is maybe to easy to open - you have a chance of catching the tab and losing your paint. Overall Fatboys outperform these pods in every way.
I'd say they're about average. Just a pod and nothing special.
Cheap (I got them for $2 each)
Pod opened on me once
Two of my pod's springs have broken
(50 words on a pod?....)
I got these pods when i bought my harness
They were $2 each
They had smoke, clear, or black. (I got smoke)
Edit: So far two of my pod's springs have broken, so they dont flip up, they just open and the lid stays there
There are other cheap pods out there, these arent the best

-It holds Paintballs
-Made of hard plasic
-Not really, Its a pod for cripe sakes
Ok, im going to say that these are good pods because #1: they are good at holding paintballs #2: They are made of hard plastic.#3: I dont know. These pods are good. They are so good i bought 6 of them!! ; ) And they fit right into the 32 degrees pack!!! Gee Gosh Golly!!
In conclusion, buy these, they are good, they hold paintballs pretty good, and they are cheap.

Holds alot of paint.
Great if you are low on money and need some pods. I got these becasue my other pods broke. I got two for 6 bucks. They are great because they hold alot of paint balls. One person said that his broke from one shot on them. The kid that shot the pod must have had high velocity to have a shot go thruough it.
I bought these with my Pro Line 6+1 harness. The work well and are made of sturdy plastic for the most part. Yesterday I bunkered a kid in the back, but didn't realize that there was somebody else in there with him and he turned around and shot me in the pack. It basically put a two inch hole in the lid and I had to throw it away. Luckily they are only about two bucks, so they are easily replaceable.
I would get these because they are cheap, but beware that they might break easily.

Lids open easy. Hard plastic, holds 150
None that i know of.
I got these pods with my 32* harness. They are very good products. These actually hold more than my other pods. I filled one and counted how many there were, and there was about 148 paintballs, so it holds a little more than 140. They are made of high quality plastic...Wow, thats kinda an oxi-moron. But they open easily when you need them to, and dont open when you dont. If you have the chance to get these, go for it. They are a good price, about 2.50 each.
Why not, get them. I have never used anything different, so i cant really compare them to anything.

They do not open when you don't want them to. Indestructable.
They are slightly too big for my belt(Unique 4+3)
Let it be known that this is a review on the 100-round pods. I have not used the 140-round pods.
Ok, these pods are ok, if you like small pods. These were the first pods i bought, I wasn't aware that they were 100-round pods. They are near indestructable, and the lid does pop open whenever it feels like it.
I personally don't like them because they will not fit in my elastic bands on my Unique 4+3 belt. Other than that, they are good. If you want 100-round pods, these would be a good investment, just make sure they fit.
I'll give em an 8 cause they don't quite fit my belt.
Good 100-round pods.
