Pod Pack Recommendation

I am looking for a new Pod Pack but they all seam to be the same. They all have that ejection system and they dont appear to be friendly to those that want to reinsert their pods after use. I play only woodsball/scenario and currently have an old Spec Ops 4 vertical pod harness. The problem it has is that it is not very padded and my back is in pain after a few hours of wear.

Here are my main concerns;

1. Must have great padding and be comfortable.
2. I must be able to put my pods back in the slots.
3. Im skinny so a 3 pod plus the little sleeves is best.
4. I wear Multicam so no bright colors (All black is fine)

Let me know what you guys reccomend. I was looking at the Empire fast pack and the Critical Stealth. Price is not a concern, because I need something to save my back!

I think that the NXe Elevations are the best.

I've also heard Valkens are good. They come as small as 3+4

Just bought my second critical stealth pack since my first one wore out after two years. They do not use Velcro straps, which makes them easier to use, in my opinion.

How is that Critical pack in comfort and putting pods back in?

Love my NXE packs, especially because I'm a bigger guy and they always fit me with no fat strap needed.

Comfort is subjective. It has some lumbar padding. The elastic on the new pack (arrived today) is stiff, which is good because the pods will not bounce as much. Putting pods back in without taking the pack off is easy because you do not have to align the velcro while holding a pod in. You can load new pods one handed without taking off your pack.

Thanks Sdawg, I was watching the review from sticktodrum and he is saying what you are. I'm going to give it a try.
