It was time to buy another pack so I decided to give Sly a try. I loved their barrel system and have heard nothing but good things about them as a company.
Pro: you can tell they used quality materials for this product. Very comfortable.

Cons:
This was my first bad experience with a product from them. I could not get my pods to eject properly. It seemed my tolerance was too tight where the pod is held (normal pods, not the bulkier dye locklids).
Tried breaking it in by using it more, leaving pods in for a week (without stretching the elastic). Did not work, pods still do not slide out.
I emailed the company and never received a response. As of now the pack sits in my closest in like new condition.
If anyone has any suggestions of fixing the problem - i would love to give it a try. The pack looks awesome and feels great on the back. I just can't justify spending an extra 5 seconds trying to pull each pod out when they should be ejected into my hand after pulling on the tabs.

This pack is great and for someone with lower back problems that says a lot! The pack feels like someone is hugging me nicely. It stays put and doesn't like to move around at all. This pack is bullet-proof! The pods are a little tough to get out at first but you just need to break it in a bit. I usually leave pods in it when I'm not using it and that seemed to help. I would recommend this pack to anyone.

I bought this pack on a whim. I've been using it ever since I bought it.

Pros:
Very Comfortable: It took a little breaking in, but it was well worth it. This is by far the most comfortable pack that I've had the opportunity to wear.
Easy to use: This pack is very east to access, and wear. The pods are easy to access, and the straps are easy to use!
Looks: This pack looks amazing! I love the different colors, and the carbon fiber accents.

Cons:
Kind of hard: While the carbon fiber accents look good, they are a bit hard, and I've noticed breaks on them even when there are no pods in the pack.
Issues pulling out pods: Occasionally when using normal pods, they don't want to come out. I'm not sure if the pods are being stuffed in too much, but they don't want to come out. If you're using lock lids, you can forget about it. I've pulled the tops off of more pods than I've been able to take out normally...
Stiffness: As I said before, there was some serious breaking in to do. When I first got the pack, I had to run it through the washer a few times to loosen it up!

Overall, I love this pack! I don't foresee buying another pack anytime soon!

SLY LLC Pro-Merc S11 Harness - 4+5 Most comfortable pack I've strapped on my back. The only downside is my locklids fit a little too snug which makes it harder to get out during a game. Great durability
