Best Pod pack on the market?

If money is no issue, what would you guys say is the best pod pack available. I bought an NXE 4+3+2 Harness TP series and the stitching has already begun to give out after about 8 days of play. I'd rather spend the money on a solid pack rather than keep buying lower priced packs. Suggestions?

I would use NXE all day. But I got a valken redemption pod pack that normally costs $60 for free, so can't complain about that. I like the HK pack too.

I use NXE too and they are great for the money! I've never really worn anything else but i've heard the HK packs are good as well as the Dye and Empire packs are pretty good.

My last pack was an empire, I have had it for maybe 3-4 years, It was great, Some of the empire packs have a "hinge" feature (lets you swing the pack around your side, while still having the straps tight and all, for putting pods in) which is really nice, It lasted 3-4 years, and I got it on sale because it was the previous model when I bought it. It literally just started to fall apart about a month ago.

So now I bought a dye attack pack, which is really nice. It seems to be very high quality, have yet to really put it through its paces though. It does seem to stay in place better than any other pack I have had/seen. I also like the fact that it is tighter in to my back than anything else on the market, it just keeps everything nice and compact.

I have always heard good things about Empire, Dye, NXE, Planet Eclipse (re-branded NXE), Sly, Lysk, and I am sure there are a few more brands too.

NXe packs breaking isn't uncommon, mine is torn as well, and look at the b/s/t you'll see lots of ripped NXe packs.

I'd grab eclipse, their stuff is bulletproof but expensive.

I have an old Liquid Pack I love. Never thought I'd find a pack as good as my Redz Dimension, but this one is the best I've ever used.

Damn, I didn't know that existed, I may have to snag one.

Since NXe is so bulletproof this rip must be my imagination



My empire pack never tore. I got it in 2008, when the NXe pack tore after a year, I started using it again.

I think you're missing the point... you can't recommend PE then gripe about NXe since they're a rebranding of the same product.

You're going on about how awesome NXe is and try to derail it by saying PE.


Correct response to my comment: "PE is just rebranded NXe, and they are both ****."
Your response: "PE is just rebranded NXe, NXe is the high quality original."

Never had a problem with nxe/eclipse packs, the 3 I have had wore like iron and my current is still going strong after 3 seasons. Bought it used from a pro player so no telling how much abuse it saw before I got it.

Lol, none of this is about me. It's about YOUR contradiction where YOU say NXe is prone to ripping, but PE is "bulletproof." Those are your words, not mine.

(me) Do I like NXe? Yes. Do I like PE? Yes, because I like NXe and PE is just a rebranded NXe.

(you) Do you like NXe? No, it rips easily. Do you like PE? Yes, it is bulletproof because it's got PE branding so it has to be reliable.
