Review: I have the 6+1 harness.........but it was made by the same company so yeah. This is a nice harness. It can hold a variety of pods from 100 ct- 160 ct, I think. I have the 140 count so it fits very nicly. It is very very durable. I've had this for 1 year and I don't even have a stray stitch. Since I play speedball so I don't use a remote, so instead I put my squeegie in the little pouch in the back and it works nicely. The only thing I don't like about this pack is that when you have 6 [140 count] pods on you.....it will be very heavy and hard to move around. So instead of using 1/2 of a case of paint in my pods I only use three ( the left three ) Now since there is three slots on one side and three on the other..........the left side of my pack will get heavy. Also I am a very skinny guy ( skinniest in my family and my family is SKINNY ) so with all this weight on the pack and me being that skinny it tends to fall a lot. But hey thats nothing some suspenders cant fix. But I don't have those for some reason......so one game the pack litterally fell off me and landed on the middle of the field and I had to run all the way back under some HEAVY fire so it was pretty stupid looking running back for my pack. The velcro that holds the pods is kind of hard to open at first so just sit there when you're watching tv and just open and close the velcro to help it loosen up a bit. Another thing I don't like is that in speedball the bunkers are very small. Since this is a horizontal pack it sticks out to the sides it makes me more vunerable. Though I've never taken a hit to the sides of my pack. I had many people tell me that my pack usually the thing giving me away to my position.
Conclusion: This is a nice pack.....I wouldn't recommend it for speedball though. The only reason I have it is because it came with my gun and plus I got 6 free pods with it. So ya.......its good for woodsball.

Review: I purchased this harness for the sole purpose of being able to hold an 88cu 4500 Nitro tank system. Most harnesses don't fit a tank that size, so for what I was looking for, this harness was the diamond in the rough.

I only found reference to Gen-X Global, the makers of this harness, on eBay, and I actually had to dig on Google to find their corporate website. I suspect they are new to the game, but I may be wrong on that.

Strengths:

1.) Durable - harness is made of strong black nylon or whatever the substance is, has strong Velcro patches, good stitching, and doesn't feel flimsy or cheap at all.
2.) Suspender rings - while this may not seem like a good feature, I found that a pair of camo suspenders attached to this harness makes it not slip down my backside. Invest in a $5.00 pair of suspenders...they attach nicely to this harness.
3.) 4+1 - holds four 140 count pods very securely, and has the center pouch for the tank. Two Velcro straps wrap the tank top securely, and there are two adjustable straps to tighten the body of the tank into the pouch. Bottom line: the tank won't fall out during a game, and neither will the pods.
4.) Price - while this is skewed because I bought it on eBay (and mine came with the four pods and a Java remote coil), I only spent $29.95 plus $7.00 shipping. For a harness that does all this, holds larger pods, holds a large tank, the price is perfect.

Weaknesses - it's a harness, so as long as it does what it's supposed to and does it well, it'll rank high with me.
Conclusion: Holds larger pods, holds large (up to 88cu) N2 tanks, suspender loops for added mobility, durable, and the price was more than perfect.
