50rd pod pouch

I'm wondering what everyone is using for a 50rd pod pouch.

I play with a BT merc vest and I find the BT 140rd pouches to be annoying when using small pods, anyone know of 50rd molle pouches? I'm using the APP 50 pods.

The cheapest way to go, is to cut down some pool noodles to the height you want. Put them in you pouches first and your 50 round pods will sit on top of them This way you can keep using the vest you like at a cost of about $1.

I use the GXG 3+4 pack. When I first received it (late October of 2013) the holders you put the pods in were tight so I put some larger diameter 140 round pods in them, then hit it with some heat form my heat gun and left the pods in there. I've played with it now almost every weekend and it is wonderful. I got it from ANS Gear and I believe it was under $20.

Foam pipe insulation maybe?

I just ordered the pbmafia 5/50 yesterday and am just waiting for it to come in. I heard its a great product for the price but after taxes and shipping I spent about $50. If you haven't made a decision by the time I get it, I'll give you my personal thoughts on it.
As of now, I use an old 2 pod harness that I slip onto a baseball belt. It holds the minipods pretty well but bounces when running due to the ****ty belt but didn't cost me a dime. I also sewed some elastic loops on the belt for stock class play.

He's right, You won't be disappointed with the 5/50. They are fantastic packs! Unless you're really attached to using vests IMHO the 5/50 is the way to go for small pods. It might take some getting used to if you're used to wearing beats, but I think you'll like the reduction in weight.

They're also comfortable, light, and very durable!
