I won this pack in a tourney recently so i figured i try it out.Now u rec and woodsballers out there u might disagre with me on some things but remember i am writin this review from the perspective of a tourney player and speed ball is fast passed so u need fast stuff.
Ok well for one the pack is pretty light but then that said again it has nothin special on it to make it heavy.one thing i did like on the rage pack its that the pods holders had stretchy things on top to launch the pod down into ur hand and that is one of the main things the pack has goin for it but (depending on the size) only 2or3 pod holders have this. the rest is just a loop u stick the pod in and the pods dont like to come out of those. Now in a speed ball game it doesnt pay to be sitin ther yankin on ur pod. Now i dont now if ive been spoiled by dye and reds pack buck most oacks ive seen have a cusion on the belt where it touches ur back. Its not that the rage pack is uncomfortable its just cusion on the belt really helps.stickin with the belt on just gonna be honest, this is the bigest flaw in the pack. the other things can be overlooked but the belt on this pack is junk. Here is why i think this: when i putt the pack on its almost like wrapin a towel aruond ur waist. sure its easy to cut the lenght like some other have mentioned but the big prob is the width. i had the pach really low and it still felt like it was al the way up my chestand that makes it hard to bend over and plus the width of the pack i use is less than half that of the rage
By no means is this a bad pack.it is good for rec and woods ball but i would not reconmend it for speed ball or for tournement players. There are a lot of packs out there and i would just consider another one. its not great, its not bad ,its just average so i give it a 6
Wide belt , easy to adjust , rubber tabs on ends of retaining straps.
Tight on some tubes makes them hard to pull out.
Bought this based mainly on price and selection. Works very well for what I needed, and holds plenty of pods for me. If you go through a lot of pods in a game you'll probably want the bigger pack, but this one works if you only use 2-3 pods. I would suggest using the extreme rage pods with the pack, they made them a little skinnier than most pods and a little longer. The standard size pods are a little difficult to slide out quickly, so the skinnier pods help during the game. Also, this pack isnt made for looks, so if you want something flashy and colorful, might want to look at dye or some others.
Buy it if you want a well made, basic pack. The quality is very good and it fits all of your basic needs. I give it a 9 just because of the pod issue, but all you need to do is buy the pods they made to go with it.

Price, durable stitching, elastic ejection, good tabs, velcro layered belt, long belt.
Elastic sometimes slips around pods, can't use lock lids in main pots, long belt.
This harness is $40, that's really a very good price. It's basically a clone of the nxe. I have my bro's Nxe right here and I'm looking at it and my ER pack. What differences do I see? Almost nothing. The Nxe pro pack plus has an anti slip gel strip where your back goes. It's also $50. The gel strip helps a little, but isn't worth $10. Also
The elastic ejection system really does work great.It pushes the pod out far enough that I can grab it easliy. It's a very light pack, and it is a clone of the Nxe pack. The pull tabs are also better on this than the Nxe. They do look a little odd though in yellow. The belt is velcro and is 4 layered for a really secure fit. You wear it on your waist. It also has two extra loops on the outside which will come in handy if I go to the D-Day scenario this summer. I use the loops to clip my goggles onto when I'm in the staging area. The belt is really long so if you are a big guy you're all set.
There really is nothing that is really bad about this pack. The tabs do look a little odd to me since they're yellow, but I really don't care at all. The belt is longer than I would like although if you're so skinny that you have to bend it so much that the 3rd layer can't attach, bring it to your mom, she'll fix it up for you. My biggest problem with this pack is that the lock lid pods I bought won't fit in the main pod holders. They slow down the ejection and they are really hard to pull out. So, I bought some normal pods and used the dyes on the outer loops.
I give it a 9 because price is good, function too, but the belt was a little long.
Note: Aftershock only uses them because they're paid too. Although I'm still sure that some of them would use them if they weren't sponsered. It is definately a really popular harness among pros though.
I recomend this harness to all players of all ability. It doesn't matter one bit whether you're a pro or newb, this harness has the best value ever. It is the same price as mantis packs, which are really comfy, but just as comfy as this and not as good. It's also less than an Nxe.
and mantis thats a pretty good pack o ya and redz

Small holds as many pods as i need
uhh if u cut the loops they tend to frey
Well i traded my extreme rage 5&4 for this pack,two dye pods, a smoke stack, and a smarts part girl barrel plug soo im quite happy with this pack i mean im not like about to have a heart attack chuggin up those hills in woods ball so only carrying 3 pods makes me feel like a feather in the wind. (I skipped all the way down to the fifty once)
this is a good pack for proz and sh*t so i suggest this one or a dye pod pack

elastic straps on top of harness easily slip around your pods
I would have to say I like this harness. I have been using it for a few months now. It was used before I got it so I don't know how much wear'n'tear was put on it before I used it. I like the fact that the elastic straps on the outside are great for holding small co2 tanks. I aquired this pack when I was the field manager for a local field, and it made carrying extra co2 for customers a cinch. Using it for steel tanks should make one tired due to the weight, right? No!Even carrying several pounds of air it was very comfortable. When using this harness for play I have not been disappointed. It easily hold three pods, I am leary of the +2 on it. The first and only time I used them I dumped a pod. The top of the harness has two pieces of elastic crossed over to give spring to your pulling. This is cool because you are able to display any stickers you have on your pods. I like stickers. The downside is that more often than not the straps slide to the sides of the pod making it more difficult to pull. Easliy fixable with a couple of stiches in the top. As far as the stiching job, I have ripped a couple of stiches in the closure straps. I do not know if this is because of the previous owner or if it just ripped due to wear from me. I enjoy this pack and would buy it if I had to pick out another one. It offers a good deal of back support and hauling capability.
Again, I enjoy this product and do recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable fit without the Redz prices.
I use to have a redz 3.2 comfort pack then i mad a very good decision to go to this extreme rage bullet 3.2 pack.
I have a 2k1 Timmi Classic Body (black fade):
-Bob's Black Bolt, -S.O.B Board,-Chrome Clamshell,-32 Degrees Sticky Grips,-Black Torpedo reg,-2k3 Dye Ultra Light,-Twist Clamping Lowrise,-CP A.S.A,-Extreme Rage Adjustable Ram Cap,-Extreme Rage Ram Sleve,-Extreme Rage Ram,- $ Symbole Eye Plates,-evolution 2,-68ci 3000 psi pure energy fiber tank.
Some strengths of this product is quick access,reliability,long lasting,comfortable and the best.
I honestly havent found anything that I dont like about this product.
On the first day that I used this product I was use to using the redz comfort pack that would ride up your back, I think its too bug and bulky, but the Bullet pack is small and very comfortable. I was playing and I open the strap to get a pod and went right into my hand so that proves my quick access. In another game I was playing the snake and you know that in the snake in the snake you need to keep as low as possible and the pack was not sticking out of about a 2 foot high snake. If you are thinking of getting a pack and read this review before you get a pack get this pack I guarentee that it will be a decision that you wont regret.
If I were you I would get the bullet pack and keep on getting it until Extreme Rage comes out with a better pack, would recommend it anytime.
10 out of 10

sewing come undone in some places
well it is a great pack and is very reliable the only thing wrong is that the threading comes undone in place but anyone can fix that up them selves but if not in the mood to sew the lil problem on this pack then get something else but if u r willing to get out and fix those problems then get this pack

Read in review
I got mine for $52+tax from my proshop WITH three smoke dye 140s and stickers, so I am very happy. Great value, great product, very adjustable, very secure, small, yet 700 balls big, that + my full eggo2 is about 860... Plenty for a front/mid guy like myself unless its one of those games..... but whatever thats when you get your back to be throw you paint and be your podbish :tup:
Weakness: Redz desplaces weight better, although I had 2 more 140s on me then the Redz can hold so whatever, with three 140s the packs(Redz and EG) feel the same.
Not perfect but better then anything else I have tried (not much) but I am still very happy and can recomend this to anyone who needs a good harness...
P.S. If Aftershock uses it, it has to be good.. right :P
have tried a few packs, some horizontal, some vertical. I prefer vertical and this pack beats them all
'99 Autococker, Eclipse blade w/ Stickies, Belsales Hollow Point 3way, Shocktech Drop Forward, Mac Dev Gladiator, Palmers Micro Rock, Lightning Bolt, Tungston Carbide hammer, 14" BOA Express .688, 68/3k PMI Fibre tank.
I love this pack. At first i was going to get the redz dimension but my buddy highly recommended this one.
First off, i have the old school ER 3+2 pack, it doesn't have the elastic loops on the outter section and it doesn't have the plastic on the inner pod holders. Personally, i prefer it that way.
The pack is VERY comfortable, well made too. I do a lot of sliding and this pack holds up well, in fact its not even in my way at all for sliding, but the belt does take a bit of a beating.
THe belt fits almost anyone. I wear a size 34-36 pants and the belt fits me perfect, i let my team mate borrow my pack and he's a small guy wearing a 26 or 28 pants and the belt fit him no problem too. Very Adjustable.
I'm not sure about people saying you have to take the inner pods out first. I always take the outter pods out first and i don't seem to have any troubles with it.
I can't really find much bad with it. I've had nothing but great experiences with this pack. Some people have had problems with stitching but i haven't had that issue with mine. This is a tough pack.
Whether you play front or back this pack is great. I usually carry only 3 pods on me since i'm a front player, but sometimes i play back and i can carry the extra 2 pods with ease. Its probably similar to the redz dimension pack. but i prefer this pack, every you see has the redz pack and i like the look of the ER back a little better, its not so flashy.
All in all, great pack for the money. Don't have to go and buy an extra belt.
Dark Angel LCD, Angel A.I.R. , JT Barrel Set. (Does it really matter)
Excellent belt. fits snug and doesnt move around. The "bullet" system works great. i dont have to let gravity do the work, the elastics does it double time. The pack is also quite comfortable even when filled to capacity. Never does it feel like you are bent over cause it offers fine back support.
This pack is not stiched well. Twice have whole loops and pod section come unstitched. Also the little loops on the +2 section rip off. Also the plastic inserts on the main pack pod holders crack almost the second you get it.
This pack could be greater but in the long haul they are nice. Maybe I got a lemon but the concept is great and you wouldn't see top teams using them unless they were dependable. I don't wish to detere people from this pack as i always have been wearing extreme rage but the quality they are known for didnt come through all the way with this one.
