One major advantage the horizontal harnesses have is that it's much, much easier to get the pods back in them while on the field. Not a big deal on a field the size of a postage stamp, but on a 20 acre scenario game field you ain't chucking those pods to the side line.
Unfortunately there's a definite lack of low profile horizontal packs these days. 4 horizontal holders in the center of the pack would be ideal for me, maybe along side a tank holder for those who prefer remotes. They used to make a bunch of different ones like that (JT Speed pack, Redz Flex Tech, others) but not so much any more unfortunately.
