I use a shotgun shell belt. I got it at walmart for $2, and i love it. Ronin makes a pack as well as flippedout (i think). Im not really sure where you can buy them.

thanks for the help guys, i really appriciate it, but how would that joyride pack work. the cover is over the top so if you pull it down, wouldn't the paint spill out or not usuable with speedcaps?it'd be great with the regular green caps but if i use those, i always lose the caps...

Joyride are designed to use either capless or cap. I use speedcaps and put the tubes upside down. I have to use some tape on the tubes to keep them from slipping out when I run but that is no biggy.

i suppose you're right, but when you pull the pod out, won't the paint spill out? also if you wear the pack upside down, would it still be comfortable? i was thinknig turning it upside down and put the pods in upright so it could have a speedfeed and not fall out

I have the same pack, and I love mine to death, but I dont see why you would want to put the pack on upside down, but everyone has their own preference.

The pads on the pack are the same on both sides, so I guess you could say it's versible either way of using the pack

I find that the pack hold the tube quite snug, and I haven't had to tape my tube to the pack while running, the only bad thing is when I slide, I slide feet first, so if the pack isn't high enough you have a chance of breaking some of your tubes.

Other than that I have no complaints bout that pack.

Now I some what save money, cause I don't have to buy caps anymore, but I still lose the tubes -_-;;; I phail @ l1f3

I hope this helps you out

I've used wrist, suspenders, Elite, and now Flipped out.... love the Flipped out.

If I am going light, i use wrist, if lazy, going Elite, and if just felling normal, Flipped Out.


Try all that you can and figure what you like best.

Capless is the best option once you get used to it. Its just easier not to have to bother with caps. Like tubes, they break and they are small so you WILL eventually lose one or two...or three. The Flipped Out packs are nice, light weight, but kinda hard to get a hold of nowadays. They also have mesh backing which is very breathable, but the downside to that is it allows moisture to get to the top paintballs in your tubes if you have it on for two long and makes the paint swell. The PbMafia harnesses dont have that problem but are a bit heavier and thicker (not necessarily a good or bad thing) and are very well made. I'd say the best bet, like anything else in paintball, is to find someone with each of them, and ask to see it.
