Where do you wear your pod packs?

...with the pods on your butt, above your butt, or below your butt? Still wearing mine different every time I play, high, low...can't seem to find the sweet spot.

They are designed for your lower back, where you put it is up to you.

True but I'd like to see someone try to run with it hanging below their ***. I mean aside from those rental type 2 pod holders every other pack would look funny as hell bouncing around down there hitting their legs.


To the OP. What pack are you using? A good pack should have something on the back of it like dyes packs (middle pic) http://www.zephyrpaintball.com/produ..._Pro__Red.html
Those padded ridges help keep it on the small of your back where it belongs. You should be able to jump up and down with them full of pods and the pack not slide around. You can't tighten it to your *** or below like you can with your waist. Actually I guess you can if you like hopping around or are too fat to be running in the first place.

I'd like to see you run like that but I put mine so that the strap goes over my stomach and the pack and pods are over my lower back. This is probably the most common position.

how do you play with a pack on your ***? i slide funny into a bunker and its all over for those pods and paint inside. Not to mention it would be awkward crouching and changing position to snap shoot.

Do you tuck your jerseys in all the way around? or leave the front out?

Definitely DON'T tuck your jersey in unless it is in your pod pack. You will look like a dork if you tuck a jersey in all the way around. lol

since I've got empire pants, and they've got that lumbar thingy, I wear my pack right on top of that, and strap them over the buttons of the pants so that when I dive into the snake, or elsewhere, the buttons wont come undone.

concerning the question on how I wear my jersey, first.. I only tuck completely in a cotton t-shirt underneath my jersey, strap my pack on, then put my jersey on. I tuck the back part of the jersey behind my podpack.. and thats how I roll

face the pod openings down or up? What do you guys prefer. I put my openings facing down and I wear the pack on the lower back above the gluteus maximus.

I also wear my pack above my waist around my stomach and lower back. The belt I wear is al old Redz Dimenzion which is very wide and gives me what feels like great back support. I also take the elastic tension straps/velcro and pull it snug. It wont fall down, and really makes it comfortable to squat.

its not about looking good or right or "agg" do whats comfortable and makes it easy for you to move and do work on the field

.

I wear mine with the strap going across my waist just above where the button on your pants would be...I don't really pay attention though. As long as you can move around fine and it isn't moving around when you kneel,crawl, or do w.e you would do while playing you're all good. As mentioned just don't be a complete tool and tuck your jersey under your pack as if you were wearing a dress shirt and you'll be fine . What I do is put my pack on over my undershirt/tall tee, and let my jersey hang over my pack.
