Some no name pack that should have a bigger tank holder.
Tippmann A5 BT-47 Apex barrel kit and BT Combat stock
Holds paint, tank holder is large, adjustable on everything
Paint stains it badly
This is a great product. holds and does everything you expect don't really know what to say. Tank holder is great I believe the pods hold 140 paintballs and the pods are made of a OK not the greatest plastic. blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Get it if you need more paint on the field or using a remote.
Easy straps to undo and to put on, durable, well made.
Horizontal packs, annoying CO2 placement for woodsball.
Nice pack, if you don't want to spend all that much. Needs over-the-shoulder straps for greater stability and less movement of the pack. In a very hot situation, I would recommend a different pack because it sticks out too far when you have 4 "140 ball" pods.
I got this pack for $10, and it is an honestly good pack. Made by a good company, too.
I have used this product for a while now and as long as you arent fully sprinting and doing low crouching run (think gears of war when you run) this pack will not bounce around as much as it normaly would. Now currently my pack holds around a case of paint if I want it to. Becasuse there is 2 140 round pods on each side of me and 328 rounds where my remote line would connect to my tank. Now this is more than enough for a backman. Some other people say that you get alot of side hits from it but thats because you are sticking you whole side out,not leaning your top half of your body out like you should be doing.

Well..I had $25 to spend on amazon.com..the e-giftcard was about to expire, so I decided to test this out, and run remote just for kicks. Well it cost me $24.81 shipped, so it didn't turn out too bad. It arrived at my door in a week, because it was being shipped from AV, and that is just something to be expected. Out on the field, it was really wierd feeling running remote, but it wasn't all bad, as I play utility/mid. Being a Mechspeed player, 4 pods will suffice for a Midplayer..too few for a back player, should be good for a front player as well. It is a very durable product, and will likely last a long, long time. The only thing that irked me was the belt clip was junk.
Aside from the crappy belt clip, a very nice harness
-Tank pouch very small
-Always falls off
-pod pouches have weak stitching
This pod belt is a basic one for beginners. I was a beginner, so i got this harness.
The pod belt is overall a peice of junk. The pod holders have weak stitching so mine started coming off after about 4 or 5 months. The tank pouch wont fit most 68 air tanks, so it mostly defeats the purpose of having a 4+1 rec harness for remot euse with big tanks.
also, if i run hard at anytime, it fall off and i end up slinging it over my shoulder. not good.
also, the belt part is very thin so it curls up on you and creates less support for the pack.
peice of junk.
Peice of junk. if you are a beginner an ddont know if you will keep playing for a year, sure, get it. if you are addicted to the sport lik emost of us, dont waste your money on this. Get a specops one, or a redz envy or flex-tech.
I think for harnesses this is a good one, especially for rec. ballers. For tournament players I would get something more expensive and durable. The pack works great though, its like, sturdy, also it has a buckly to hold it on, which I far prefer over velcro which I find oevr time loses its hold. Now for its practicality. Its holds pods great, thier easily accesable, and your have no problems there. The CO2 sits in there very nicely and its actually quite comfortable. The only downside I see in the harness is the layout, how the pods are facing out, I have had these get caught on edges in scenerio games, they also stick out the sides of your body, so as long as your aware your a larger target and part of body will be exposed when you think your actually hidden.
After a few more months with it, I have seen a few numerous problems. The biggest one is as I mentioned before the horizontal layout. I have taken so many pods hits that I have simply gone and bought a new pack, I got too fed up. The pack also bounces around like crazy when you run and there is no way to stop this. You are unable to crawl effectively with it at all. And forget sliding unless you want that CO2 tank slamming into your back. The only place I see this back being good, is for rec scenrio players who odnt crawl around. The feature that would attract them is that it is very simple to put the pods back in after you take them out, perfect for scenrio ball. My Empire Action pack has an ejection system and its almost impossible to replace the pods during a game. So thats the one and only advantage I see to this over vertical style harnesses. I change my review from a 10 to a 7, because it is still built fairly well, and is one of the better harnesses if you need the remote CO2 in my opinion. Just know that pods shots will now be the norm.
I think this is a great harness, if you are fine with the horizontal layout, its a great pack for a great price I have had no problems with it.
Do not get this for speedball! Scenerio or woods is at your own disgression.

After looking at some of the other reviews these are some of the main points i see:
Comfortable-I found my harness to be just the right size for me and once i got the belt to the correct length it fit like a dream.
Cheap-I bought my harness for 16.99 which is alot cheaper than other harnesses of the same capabilities. (Redz 06 Flex Tech 4+1 Vertical Pack Black $33.99) (NXE 4+1 Rec Harness $29.99)
Hold Air System- As a user of the heavy Tac-5 i immediatly started looking for a remote and harness to get the tank off the gun. This product uses two velcro straps and a tightening strap around the center of the tank. Ive never lost a tank (Had it fall out) with this system.
Durable- After taking this pack on a recent trip to a major scenario game in Northern Indiana I am completely stunned at the durablitly of this product. After 10 hours of play the the was still looking new! (Besides the dirt and paint!)
Big Buckle- Big buckle makes it easy to do a quick-ditch if you need to run for long distances. My pack has never come undone at the buckle.
Feels Big- Compared to some other packs the horisontal position of the pods make seem bigger than most other packs.
Velcro sound- Does give away position but usually if your reloading your in combat and silence doesnt matter as much. The sound does go down after being used alot.
Gets Heavy- All i can say is GET IN SHAPE! Ive carried this thing for miles and if you have the thing sized up correctly and have the backpad in place it really isnt as heavy as people say.
Straps slide- Never happend to me. Possibly could happen when they get wet or you get hit with loads of paint.
Falls of for no reason- Again never happend to me. The buckle has always stayed fastened. Make sure you have the size of the belt to your size!!!
Holds Air System: 7/10
Big Buckle: 6/10
Feels Big: 6/10
Velcro Sound: 5/10
Gets Heavy: 7/10
Straps Slide: 6/10
Falls of for no reason: (No score)
Tank is not secure
Slight increase in profile
Cannot belly crawl
i got mine off of eBay for $21 shipped and it works actually pretty well. the wrap around makes it comfortable, but you cant belly crawl which kind of irks me. and the tank is really wobbly and it whacked me in the back a lot which you will probably see a lot in these reviews. its easy to put the pods in and take them out.
This product is really good for the anyone but not for theserious sniper for the reasons I have stated above

Okay so I Started out with a cheap 32 Degrees Pack which worked really nicely
So i went out and got this pack since i wanted to try it out
For 15 bucks it was pretty cheap but for its price came a lot of crap
-Does What it Advertises, HOLDS PAINT
-4 Pod Holders Hard To Use
-Instead of putting the pod in easy reach, its like right next to your hand and jabbing into you
it forces the pods into your hand in a way.
-Tank Holder loose, will hurt you
-HIGH PROFILE! (extremely high profile, bad for dives...especially on sides)
-Clip breaks on first try., Needed to add extra belt on my own
Instead of using the tank holder, i just slipped on my 32 degrees pack on my spyder in the middle with the belt...so now its a 6 pack hehehe
All in all, terrible product.
Go get an empire 4 pack or something you won't be disappointed with.
Try it out first, with pods at the store so you know how it feels

Carry more P-balls, carry extra tank, more in review
Weighs down body, more in review
The first pod pack I ever bought would be a VL pack with two 100 round pods. At the time it was not enough ammo for me. So I sold it and went and bought this Java 4+1 pack at my local sporting goods store. I figured it would be a good investment to have. Along with the 4+1, I bought four 150 round extreme rage pods to go with that. The price was good I guess, all together with the pods and pack it cost me about $20.
There are four easy-access slots to insert your pods, my pods fit rather securely and I can get the pods out easily without much hassle. The +1 in the name means it can hold a tank. This comes in handy, because as you can see I use an A-5 and almost everyone knows that an A-5 is a gas-hog, so every now and then when I'm not sure how long my tank will last, I'll throw my 20oz Co2 tank in the pocket and hook it in. Now getting the tank out could be rather hard, if you wish to have the tank strapped in good enough so that it wouldn't bounce around. Sometimes I'll ask a friend's help to get the tank out.
I don't really use these pods too much because I try and play conservatively, I really only use them if I feel it will be a long game, and only then will I fill maybe one of the pods and throw a tank on. I don't really buy enough paint to fill every pod, if I did I'd run out within three games probably.
They also tend to be kind of loose on me, even when I tighten them, I get the feeling that they might slip off when I try and rush or something, however I try and pack light when I plan on playing in an aggressive fashion. I fixed that like alot of the people who have made reviews before me did. I simply took an old duffle bag strap and attached it to the rings. So now I have a nice shoulder strap that should add some support. One disadvantage I don't like is the larger profile. With the pods on you will notice that they stick out a few inches on the sides. No biggie though.
This would be a good buy for someone who likes to spray and pray. I don't really use too much paint, but it is nice to be able to carry some extra rounds and some gas just in case. I will try and use them more now that I have customized mine a little more so I can move faster and not feel as weighed down. I give this product an 8 simply because it does what it is supposed to do but can be a hassle when crawling and sprinting.
