Been on my same NXe pack since 2009; they're bulletproof. When it breaks down, I will either quit playing paintball, or use my own rectum as pod storage.

Do they fall apart slower.

Seriously... Every 6 months I have to grab a new pack because either the stitching is coming out of velcro somewhere or the pod holders are ripping off the backing.

The dryer would probably be a bad idea but I've never had an issue with the washing machine.
Or you can put it in a dish washer: use the cold water setting and don't add any soap.

dunno.. Ive had one since 06, which still looks great. got another in 07 (which someone stole) I still think they are best in quality and design. I have a empire thats either a '10 or '11 and thats very comparable to NXe and i like that one alot. Id say Dye is by far the worst in quality. My 70 dollar attack pack had 1 pod holder velcro patch fall off in first 4 hours I used it. Not to mention all the little rubber pieces that are on the back and sides that dye uses to make it look good. Having those peel off on first day. overall POS it is

I actually use the dye assault pack and think its one of the best packs out. Its exp but pods dont fall out. I run to the corners with 9 plus pods a point and it doesnt bounce around like other packs. its held up for few seasons now

actually the quality of nxe packs of the last few years have actually gone way down hill. when they first came out they were amazing and next tore and the velcro lasted forever. cant say the same about them lately

I ordered one, even though my last Nxe pack lasted less than a year before the pod slot ripped all the way down the side. I'm hoping for better luck with this one. Was looking forward to trying it out this weekend, but mother nature looks like it is going to crap on that idea.

Genuinely surprised a zippered pouch is a new feature. I've got an Empire pack that's at least 6 years old that has one.

Do like the aesthetics though, subtle.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
