Depends what kind of pack your looking for. I have a gun bag that doubles as a backpack so you could carry whatever way you want. I prefer to carry my guns like a suitcase though.

As for the mask question I did a search on here and found this...http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3760749...It's old but alot of people saying a flex would do the trick.

Bruno,

I am a big dude also... and I was wondering about this...

I played back in the 90s and right when I got out Redz packs were the bomb! So naturally... I sought one out when I came back...

I found them here:
http://www.discountpaintball.com/Red...lt_p_8822.html

Problem is it is just large enough... when it gets cold if I have to wear a heavy jacket it is a no go... I can wear it with 3 shirts... but a heavy jacket is too much and it comes off when running.

Oh, and I assume that because my body is big so is my head? I use an eflex and it seems to work well... plenty of coverage.

Let me know if you have questions.

Interested in other posts to hear other's suggestions... I know one day I will have to replace my current pack.

Both Valken and NXE make pack extenders. I do not know how effective they are but worth a shot. I wonder if one of the smaller companies would be willing to make a longer belt if you asked....maybe a small upcharge or something.

You could try Critical (criticalpaintball) or Bnkr Kings (bunkerkings). I've spoken with both on the phone in the past and CS seemed good. You might get lucky and have a custom fitted, kick butt pack.

Carbon Paintball is another possibility but I think a longer shot. They seem to be going for the custom lightweight market but more in terms of colors and printing. You never know though.

Like mentioned above, the E-Flex should work. I have a large head and still want good coverage on my jawline, wasn't sure what to get so I just went to local store and tried on all their masks. Went home that night and ordered it and love it till this day.

Not sure what to suggest for packs - but I'm a 38 waist and I use a Proto Pack that I got from B/S/T. 4/3 and still has plenty of waist room.

Your best bet is to go to a local paintball store and try on what they have. Use whatever is the most comfortable to you.

^^ This. For just about any piece of gear, really. Support your local shop when you can Buying used is a great way to save money, but don't forget about the ol' brick and mortar shop. We'll miss them when they're gone...

Im a big guy and i have an empire pack that fits well. I just bought a critical pod pack and i can close pkack but not happy on how little velcro grabs on too. Also i got a pbrack pack and it fitts better than critical but no as good as empire. Hope this helps.
