Dye Black/Cobalt Dm5
-68/4500 Crossfire Tank
Pods held to tight
To exspensive for a crap pack
cant tighten well
This pack is awful. My freind let me borrow it for a tourney and i thought that is was awful. The pack bounces around all over and it is hard to get it fit good. The pods are held way to tight and i broke 2 pods trying to get them out and lost paint from about 4 pods. WAY to exspensive for a pack that isnt even good.
i would not get the pack. Get a nxe pack,wgp tactical, redz dimension, or the new c5 pack(alittle pricey $92). But this pack is not good!!

Lumbar Pillow is great
Holds lots of paint
None so far
This pack is awesome. The pods fit snug but easy to remove and put back in. This beats the crap out of my old 4+1 where the pods are sideways so when you lay on your side the pods get crushed. The pack has 2 sets of velcro waistbands. One to keep the pack on you and another to make the pack more secure. Its soooo comfortable. It has lots of padding on the back it even has a removable lumbar pillow which is also very nice.I use DYE locklids which are the best pods on the market on my opinion and they fit this pack great. I guess the only semi-bad thing is that the DYE logo in on this in so many places, you become a walking DYE commercial...but hey, there's nothing wrong with that ;).
Best pack for the money without a doubt

The pack is a great design and somewhat comfortable. I'm a bigger player, and it would've been nicer if they made one with a longer velcro belt. Don't know if they make extensions or longer belts. THey don't seem to be adjustable, unless I just haven't played around with it enough. I do see bigger players than me with the same Dye Attack Pack though.
Overall I recomend to any one that wants to get into competition.
Spend the extra money and BUY it. If you're a larger guy..try it on first.

Mine didnt have +x straps
I had two of these packs, and I heavily favored one over the other.
My newer 3 pack (had DYE on the external oblique flap) was hard to get pods out. I was constantly being too precautious in pulling the pod out, and not grabbing the lid or collar. The following relates to my 5:
-Pods didn't move around while in the pack, but were removed with little effort (+)
-All sorts of straps to pull tighter and adjust to fit
-Didn't move/bounce even with 5-7 pods in it (didn't hold the 2 additional tight however)
-Pillow (removable) that fits into a leaner person's back, making it more comfortable
-I loved the hoops to pull on - they would also hang rather than lift back up
-Used (IMO) the correct amount of velcro. Jacko packs I have used/owned have been almost entirely velcro - would stick to cars and carpets horrendously
-Would like to have the fold out elastic collapsable sheaths
-Solid, I've never torn/destroyed any of my Dye equipment (minus pods)
-Only one color to my knowledge
Suggestion: use good pods that fit inside the allotted material
Unless you must look pretty and match, this is a great pack. Mine got stolen :(
This would be a great pack to buy used for a newer player especially, very durable. I played three or four tournaments with each, and I never had a problem.
I loved this pack, and was not planning on another, so I give this pack a 10

pods are slightly hard to get out, pricey
A great pack, i've been using it for a few months now, and i find it to be the most comfortable pack i've ever used. The pods were a little hard to get out until i bothered to get the dye lock lids, wich solved all the problems. I only got a 3+2, but it carries enough paint for me, and then some.
Beautiful product, dye has done it again. With lock lids this product is unparallelled. A Huge improvement over last year's version(wich sucked, i lost a case of paint trying to get the pods out, and having them open..grrrr). A little pricey, but worth it. I would rate it perfect if it weren't for that
Vapor works feedneck
Overall this is a great pack. I put it on right when I got it and found out that I couldn't even try to make it move while it was on. It velcros in three different places. It holds the pods tightely and they wouldn't come out untill I pulled them out so you wouldn't have to worry about them falling out. The only problem I had was the price. You pay for the Dye logo on each pod holder and they get a little pricey.
I wouldn't play with any other pack no matter how much it costs.
great pack, confertable, easy to use
a little tight to take out pods but nothing too bad
Overall a great pack that is good for all players. Also is very durable, not too hard to take out pods. Works better than other packs I've used. Great product. Comes in all different sizes so great for all players, get a bigger pack if u use more paint, smaller for less paint. Very confertable also
dye attack pack (3 pod)
hard to get pods in and out at first
hard to clean
This pack is amazingly light, affordable, comfortable, cool looking and last but not least, an overall awesome pack.
it is just a little hard to get the pods in at first but if you work at it for a little and leave the pods in for a couple of days, it loosens up and you got a great harness. and it is also a little bit hard to clean this harness... other then that, great product!
this is an awesome harness! i would recommend this pack to any one who is looking for a good quality and reliablepack.
Which one?? Dye Ultralite, Super custom dye minimag, Spyder E-99, 'AO Frankencocker
Dye, looks good, fits snug, doesn't move
Pod release problems, makes you sweat, See the review!
Its odd this pack gets such wonderful reviews. I purchased the new '04 4 down pack. It just doesn't work for me. I slide alot, and when I do, the pods get jammed up in the pack (yes, the dye pods) and it is forever difficult removing them. The velcro works like magic, and opening the pod strap is a nice reach, and easy to open, but getting that pod out after its been jammed up in there past the lip is a headache and a half. And that seems to happen every time I slide! Other companies have remidied this problem by putting straps over the bottome side of the pods, to keep them in place.. Why hasn't dye? If you stay off of your back during play, I would reccomend this pack. but if you ever lean back or lay back while shooting, or slide alot, this pack is no good. Other than that, it fits snugly, and your paint stays put. The pack doesnt move around much, even when sliding.
5. Packs should fit the way this one does. But they should make it EASY and FAST to get your paint out, and those criteria are not met.
