lets talk pod packs

I have been using redz dimension packs for the past 10 yrs (around there somewhere) anyhow I know this thing is not going to last forever in fact it is starting to get pretty worn so I have been tossing around the idea of getting something new. Now the reason I like the pack I have is because it DOES NOT eject the pods but lets them fall freely then when I am finished reloading I can just pop it back in. I know thats not the pro way to do it but I like my pods and I also like not having to look for them later. So what I am looking for is a pack that is can carry 3 or 4 pods vertically and DOES NOT EJECT the pod so I can easily just stick them back in the when I am done. So does anyone know of a pack out there that fits my criteria?

I just got a nxe 4+3 it ejects the pods but you could easly cut the elastic off so it doesn't eject them

how is the quality seam? good quality stitching? Nice thick material? I would rather not cut whatever I am buying up. maybe just something that only ejects them a little?

I second NXe's mid to high end harnesses. I have owned two of them and I've loved each of them. The material is nice and stiff, they don't bounce AT ALL, and they are super comfy. My first pack was the standard pack but I recently bought an Elevation series 3+2. I love it, it has lots of padding in the back which is great if you have back pain like I do.

You could cut the elastic if you don't like it to eject the pods I suppose. I haven't ever had an issue replacing the pods in game though. Just my experience with them.


Hope that helps.

Amazing stitching and quality. You'd have to put an NXe through a LOT of abuse before it wears out. If you watch for loose threads after/before you play, you'll have it last forever.

You could just buy a new Redz pack. There around. Usually on the cheap. I know a spot kinda local where they have some new in pack, old stock, but never used. If your interested I can give you the website and you can call the guy, see what he has.
Ebay has a bunch right now. Good thing your not looking for a horizontal one

I`ll third the Nxe, I always put pods back in game (unless in tourny) and it works amazingly well.
