Packs - hk zero g/bnkr Kings supreme

I know the basic rundown on the differences, and that the hk has adjustable tension for each pod holder, my question is whether or not any negatives could come from this?

After all, it's velcro, velcro wears out and can come loose. Also means more stitching to go bad/come loose. Is anyone else worried about this, or am I just being particularly paranoid? Am I missing anything?

Would also love to hear people's opinions/experience that have owned/used either of them.

Regardless, I'll be picking one or the other up. What would you pick up if you were in my position? Please vote, & if you choose other please specify.


Thanks nation!

I went with the HK pack. I like the adjustment factor since I'm using Dye Locklids. My teammate does have the BK pack though and loves it. He plays snake side and has no issues either diving in all day. I back him up and usually carry around 10 pods when I play back. I don't play nearly as much as I used too so I'm not concerned about velcro or stitching. Once you have the adjustment dialed in you shouldn't have to touch it again and worry about the velcro being loose. It's pretty solid in construction.

If you actually hold both packs side by side and compare how they retain pods you will see that the engineering behind the retention system in the bk pack is far more thought out and superior to the hk. The zerog system is cool and does allow you to adjust tension but also increases the amount of variables, failure points, and weight to the pack. Just my opinion.

Is there proof that the design was stolen? No.

Would HK have "designed"/released the Zero G in the absolute absence of Bunkerking? I'd be surprised.

I could see this being true, looking at the hk pack its easy to believe that someone designed it while using the picture of the bk pack for reference while missing the design behind the retention system.

But like you said, no proof, just accusations and speculation.
