Won't bounce when you run
Holds close to body
If worn too tight, pods are hard to pull out
I got this a few weeks ago at Painball Central in Burlington, NC for $24. That's the first thing I noticed about this harness. Hanging next to Empire, JT, and Dye packs that cost $50, this one was half the others. I took it down, put in some pods and tried it on, and it was like it wasn't there (except for the feeling that a very weak person is hugging you).
Unlike the 32 Degrees harness, which has the pods sticking out to the left and right, this harness holds the pods vertically. This made me happy, because more than once I've been hit in the pods because they were sticking out from behind a tree.
If you wear it really tight, then be careful when pulling out your pods, as I once accedentally opened one whilist pulling. Unfortunatly, the Dye Locking Pods don't fit into this one too well. So just be careful
This is a great alternitive to other higher-priced harnesses holding about the same ball capacity. The ability to accept 100 or 140 round pods is a plus, as I sometimes use both. This is one of the most comfortable harness I have worn, and it is almost half the cost of others (except the 32* ones.).

This is the first 4+1 harness I have used, so I don't have much to compare this product to, however, I can't imagine a much better harness than this one for the price. I am a pretty small guy, and this pouch stays snug on me even with my 20 oz. tank and all four tubes fully loaded. I haven't used it much yet, but this harness also appears very well-built, so I doubt I will have problems w/ durability.
I recommend this harness for any paintballer on a budget or someone who wants to run a remote set-up without purchasing a vest.

Gas through stock and remote
Easy to clean
I'd say lack padding in tank area... but that's a stretch.
This pack ROCKS! It's got four Huge elastic bands and about 2 square feet of velcro holding it on your hips. The large bands run over 6" vertically and the vlecro allows you to get it tight. This means that it does not bounce around - even when fully loaded!
I used to have a JAVA 4+1, and that thing bounced when I rean and the pods stuck way out the sides and got shot all of the time. This harness stays put and the pods load vertically on your back, so they don't add to your profile!
The only thjing I did not like about this pack was that the tank (which is flat against the base of your spine) can get to be a pain after a day of playing, so I stuck a strip of soft foam in the tank pocket and - voala - I got a nice soft pad, no spinal bruising!
Overall, GREAT pack!
The best +1 pack I have ever seen or tried.
If you need a pack to hold your bottle for your remote and 4 pods, this should be the only pack you get.
