Extremely lightweight, the Fast Pack is perfect for Xball style play. Those players trying to cut out any unneeded weight will find this pack beneficial. The designers made sure every detail in comfort and function have been carefully refined into the lightest most durable harness in the sport.
Breathable AirMesh construction
Non-slip rubber lumbar pad
Central reinforcing support bars
Easy load micro-injected pull tabs
Velcro secured adjustable micro-injected elastic support wrap
The Empire Fast Pack Harness are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
IT's not the best pack out there but you need some dye locking pods for this pack. It's a cheap price for a decent pack. Maybe if I was a front player in a small tourney then I would rate this pack higher. It's a pack that can hold 5 pods where all of the pods won't stick out on your side.
Good price, better packs out there. I would not recommend this pack to my friends.
Non-Slip Lumbar Pad
Very low profile
None, just get good pods, preferably Fatboys.
This Harness is awesome. Its REALLY LIGHT, and does not slip whatsoever. I myself think this is better than the c4 attack pack. The only thing that i like about the c4 that this doesnt have is the huge pad. But the Fast pack is a really low profile. I haven't got hit in the pack yet and expect not to. Also this pack is so much easier to remove pods than other harnesses; instead of having to find the dang straps and undo them, all you have to do is grab your pod and pull lightly. Also, this thing does not slip at all! You can jump as high as you want and land and it stays perfectly with you. The thing that i like is that when your playing, its so light, you forget you even have it.
Overall, get this harness. its supposed to be the lightest harness in paintball and i believe it is. It's an awesome harness and would get this over anything else.

Light, holds lots a paint, small profile, quality, rubber lumbar
Wide strap can be kinda annoying some of the time
I payed $45 canadian for this pack plus pods.
At first i didn t think this pack would hold enough paint for me since im a back player but it has. the rubber lumbar support really helps to not allow the pack to move around alot while playing. This is a really light and small pack which would make it ideal for a frontman.
The only problem i had with it is the strap being pretty wide but that doesnt bug me while im playing so meh.
Its a good idea to leave your pods in the pack over night to stretch the elastic. This makes pulling a pod easier and quicker.
i would recomend this pack to any one. The only people who might not like this pack would be back players but it works for me.

Very Light, durable, never loses a pod, comfortable and looks good
Hard to get pods out of until loops breaks in
This pack is great. I got it for $28 at National Paintball Supply. It puts a firm hold on pods, looks great, and doesn't give me any discomfort or weigh me down. This is the best pack I can recommend any player that doesn't need a harness that holds more than 5 pods of paint. If you don't need the two outer pod holders, they tuck away neatly with built in Velcro.
When I first bought this pack I was alarmed with the difficulty of getting the pods out. Just stretch the pod holders using your hands then leave the pods inside them for a few days. You will find it much easier to get the pods out of the holders.
Comes in Red, Blue, Gray, Black and Yellow.
I would buy this pack over any pack if I needed five pods of paint or less on my harness. It's cheaper than others, looks great and wears good. Buy it if you want a harness and are weary of high prices.
Print out an online price and take it to National Paintball Supply. They will match the price no matter how low the price (No eBay).

Light, hugs your body very well
Would be hard to use all 5 loops without knocking inside pods open
I love my Fast Pack-perfect for playing front. If you use less than 3 pods a game(probably most people), this is a great pac, as it is extremely light, hugs your body perfectly, and is very easy to pull pods from, and even to put them back in. If you are going to use the 5 pod setup(which I don't like, it's pretty bulky, but should work for a backman, or maybe even a middy), then get Dye Lock-Lids, so you don't inadvertently knock open a pod.
I noticed a number of things Empire did which make this pack excellent: first, the pad that goes against your back is rubber(or something similar anyway) coated, and really keeps the pack with you. Also, the straps are nice and long, so you can fit just about anyone from size 34-54 in it. At least, I have yet to find someone who didn't fit in it. I've got a Medium/Large size pack. Also, the 3 main pod slots have an ingenious little feature, where there are little tabs with the Empire logo on them, which you pull to slide the pod back in. By pulling on them, it pulls the strap taut, which allows you to reload the harness quickly and easily without even taking it off.
The only bad thing I noticed is that if you use a 4 or 5 pod setup with this harness, you will probably end up knocking one of the main pods open when pulling one of the secondary pods out-this is easily fixed by using Dye Lock-Lids on the inside.
Good stuff, go buy one. I got mine for $38 shipped with 3 pods.

Pod sometimes fall open
Well tis is a pack I bought out of neccesity. I'm a back player and this pack is more for front and x-ball. Allthough its not perfect for a back guy its pretty damn nice. It is close and small and light. The only complaint is that with a regular pod, since ther is no real flap to hold them in, you occasionally pop open a lid and lose 140 balls(dye lock lids solve this problem). I have only had this happen twice, but it stinks.
It is a really good pack and worth the 40$ i spent.
Nothing is perfect so it gets a 9

Holds Pods Tight
Holds lots of pods
Gives padding near your stomach
Hard to Pull pods out when you first get it
This is a good pack IMO. It is inexpensive at only around $30. It holds the pods tight so they don't fall out. It holds alot of paint, Mine is a 3+2. It is VERY light. It's good if you play front. It also gives you some extra padding in the stomach area.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE 11/18/06
I've had the 05 Fast pack for about a year now and I have NO problems with it. It is still in Excellent condition and has proven to be a very sturdy pack.
I just bought an 06 Fast Pack. It is just as great as the 05 but a little more expensive. I also noticed that there is more padding in front of the pods then on your lower back. This means that you are more likely to get a bounce on your pack (not likely but still a higher chance then over the 05 version). With the less padding on the lower back, it is a little less comfortable. The pack still does not budge while doing superman dives or playing hard (believe me, I tested it out today by doing many superman dives!). It also keeps the pods very tight so you wont have to worry about pods falling out.
I would reccomend it because of all of its strengths and its only weakness is a minor annoyance( At the most). It is good for any player because of the amount of paint it can hold and its size. Three pods for front and five for back/mid sounds good to me.
After over an entire year of use, my 05 fast pack has stayed with me and hasnt torn or broken into little pieces. I would have to say it has incredible value!!!
So after owning two versions, I can easily say that I will be sticking with my Fast Packs as long as they will last me!

Holds Pods Well
A little bit hard to slide pods out
The Empire Fast Pack is very light. I mean this thing i deffinetly the lightest pack in paintball. When this pack has every pod filled it is still extreamly light. This pack holds the pods very tightly. You can slide all you want it will hold them. Did I mention how comfortable the pack is, well since it is so light it makes it so comfortable. It like molds to you.
Why buy an any other pack when you could just buy this awesome cheap pack that is 10 times better.
WGP pack but the the good ones not the ones with just the strap.
WGp 04 prostock, Torpedo reg, pmi 68 5k tank, and revy with xboard.

Holds the pods really tight!!!!!!!!!!
You need lock lids.
Good: its very very light,
holds the pods in there really really tight
has great looks
no slip material that touches ur back so the pack wont move really.
Bad: i have to buy lock lids bc my pods suck
the velcro part thats on the 2 straps that are used to tighten the pack.
