Tippman 98 Custom with either a flatline or BT Paintball Apex Barrel
3 point tactical sling
adjustible CAR type stock
Ariakon Overlord with drop-leg holster
NXe 3 pod harness
Military style Load Bearing Vest
Light, easy to use in various positions,
It can move a bit if not secured.
I use this product not on a waist belt but as a drop-leg system (on my thigh), so I took the belt that it came with and have it so it goes around my thigh, then in from the sides to the two main loops and up the middle, where it loops around my belt. This makes it easy to reload and put the pod back in the harness in all sorts of positions, like taking cover behind a tree with your back against the tree, etc.
It does move around a bit, but that is because the weight of the paintballs make it move, and the fact that it has two loops makes
it easy to secure however you want to use it.
The loops may be wide, but that makes it possible to use it with the opening at the top or bottom, so it is versitile.
Another bonus is that the belt is a clip type not velcro. Velcro may be good for speedballers, but for woodsballers who like to position theri pack where they want it, not just on their back, a velcro strap just doesn' cut it.
If you want a light weight 3 pod pack, for a good price, that is very versitile, this is a good by. I give it a 10 because it works exactly as it should, and can also be used in non traditional ways.
A redz rec pack. This one's pretty much the same, but my other one only held 2 pods, this holds 3.
12 Inch J&J Ceramic Barrel
68/4500 Pure Energy N2 Tank
Cheap and carries enough pods for a front player.
Slides around a lot, easy to fall apart.
I actually won this at a Big Game my local field held back in June. It is a step-up from my 2 pod harness that I was using. This is a pretty good harness except that it slides around a whole lot. During dives is kinda scary with it. The last time I dove with it on, it went flying up to my chest! It can only hold 100 round pods, I've tried fitting 140 rd. pods in it, but the velcro doesn't hold very long.
it can reload a halo in a little over one pod
The belt is not sewed on to the pack so it jiggles slightly
the pod pack is overall very good for a beginner or someone who just needs a good pack fast and for veryyyyyy little money (CHEAP!!!!!) i recomend this pack to anybody even if u already have a pack it is a good back up and it holds either 100-160 round pods (140 round pods work the best)
This is a cheap and good pack and this is why i recomend it
I picked this pack up off Firstcall Paintball for like $10 with 3 pods included for free. So I figured I'd give it a chance since I was in the market.
The pack works well, ejecting pods easily with the tension supplied by the ejectors. But putting the pods back in after using them is a hassle when you are on the field compared to other packs.
The pack itself is well made, but the strap that secures it to the player is more of a loop system, and the loop it passes through is very large. Its moves around if you dont have it tightened properly.
I guess they could possibly fix it by making the loops smaller and/or just simply attaching the strap to the pack itself.
Overall I would give this pack a 7 simply because it works well and it came with free pods at such a cheap price. But at higher levels there are definately better packs.

Light, low profile, adjustable, the pod ejection system
Moves around a bit
I bought this product yesterday at my local paintball arena (Dragonfire Paintball) and it was amazing. With all the pods filled up it was still incredibly light! I didn't have to mind the pods when I was hiding or crouching because of the compactness of it all. An amazing design, only issue is that it moves around a bit, but its not a problem. All together this is a great purchase and something I will be using for a long time.
This is a great product for a beginning player because of its weight, profile, and price
10 out of 10

Putting pods back in is awkward when playing
As you can see, my A-5 came with a response trigger. It will fire out a lot of paint if you want it to, and coupled with the 180-200 round hopper, you'll blow through it fast.
I wanted a pack, but i didn't want a 9, 7, or 5 pack, so i started looking for a 3 pack.
I saw the NXe 3-pack for only $15, and i jumped on it. It fits well, looks good, and all for a good price.
This pack is very light, even with three full 140-round pods. Another cool feature is the "Pod Ejection System", which is composed of a small, elastic strap at the bottom of the pod sleeve. When you pull the strap, it pushes the pod up into your hand. Only problem is, if you want to put your pod back into the pack on the field, you gotta find the sleeve, then apply enough pressure to the elastic to get the pod far enough down to put the strap down. You can do it, but it takes practice.
Tested with 1 full 140 round pod, and one 100 round pod, this pack was very light for a 3 pod harness. It fit well, and i forgot it was on my back after the game started.
The strap is not sewn to the harness, so if it is loose, the pack will work its way around to your hip or start to bounce, which can be fixed by tightening the pack.
The "Ejection System" did it's job, moving the pack up from the sleeve, but when i put it back, it "resisted" the pod going back in, but i got it without too much trouble.
This is a great pack for beginner player who is just getting started. It works great for woods ball and speed ball. If you want a good pack for a low price, get this one.
