Best loader for a backpack

I made a backpack loader for a Halloween game using a rotor lower and a warp feed. It worked good but jamming the rotor under the load of 1/2 a case or more was a problem. What do you all think the best loader internals to use for this. I was looking at the halo but figure I might as well ask

your best bet would probably be to continue using the rotor, but to make some sort of multi-level system as to keep some weight off of the rotor internals

Maybe try two hoopers teed into one line. Then a switch, one your vest or something that turns them in idependently. Then you could get two high capcity rotors and boom 500 rounds.

Honestly, I've seen Halos, Magnas/Prophecies, and Vlocitys do the best job.

make 3 foot all qloader pods from large diameter clear pvc
strap it to you back
have a pod boy follow you everywhere with a golf bag full of reloads

OR

Get one of those metal framed hiking packs and build a shelf higher up to hold one of those giant plastic tubs and fill it with like 5 cases, just moving should keep it agitated enough to feed down

Something like a Pinokio or Fasta hopper. They don't jam.

This. Which you already thought of. The Rotor is as good as it gets. Just need minor changes to the "hopper" area of the backpack.

I feel that the rotor is not cost effective. Leaning towards the halo due to cost and availability.
