My impression was the backpack was -FAKE-. Yes, FAKE.

Read the fine print, and they do not plan on releasing it for another year. I can't find any videos of it actually working. That tells me that it doesnt work, and is still in the early prototype stages.

Lots of companies have tried to put backpack loaders into the market, and they end up as vaporware. I've seen a few pop up in APG over the years... even back to the early 90s.

Its not to say that it wont come to market. It might. Lots of people have many homemade versions... and some work better then others. There are lots of technical issues with all that weight of paintballs, and how far they have to be pushed.
