Empire Fast Pack **pics up**

Didn't hear much about this, but it's a great pack.

If anyone is looking for a pack, take a look at this one. I was looking at Redz, Dye, and others, but this one was in my store, so I tried it out. It's very comfy, it has rubber on the back to help it keep to your body. I got the 3+2 one, the pods fit well, and are easy to pull out. When running, it doesn't slip around much, if at all. A very nice pack, I got mine for $45.

I have the same pack, but it's first gen so it doesn't look like that. And it's blue.

I like it.

It looks a bit hard to return your pods back in place once you've taken them out. Are you suppose to just drop them and pick them back up later?

Yes. That's what most people do.

Yeah. You drop them, and leave them at the bunker, and when you get out, when you're walking off the field, you pick them back up.

that seems like it could be problematic in senario or woodsball.

are the straps just elastic? no velcro?

That is why they make harnesses for different purposes. The ones that hold tanks are more woodsball, while the other ones without one are for speedball.
It is all made for the type of play. In an intense speedbal game, you will have to be quick and move quick. The time that it takes to put your pod back in can cost you the game. It could have been the time that you most critically need.

On my 3+4 Fastpack, the 3 are Velcro, 4 are elastic.

Actually the elastic band ones are made for holding both tanks and pods.
And the time it takes you to drop a pod is about the same as it would to put one back in with some harnesses.

On the big red straps, the whole front is velcro. On the bottom of one of the big ones, there's a piece of velcro that keeps it together. Then the two smaller ones that say Empire on it are velcro bottom.
