Packs are one of those pieces of equipment that most don't think about until they need a new one. Until you strap on a new pack and use it in a game, you don't notice what is or isn't missing, or what is or isn't wrong. The Valken Crusade pack is one that has some issues that you may not notice until it is too late.

Now don't get me wrong, this pack has a lot going to for it, but there are a few things that could just make it better. For starters, the pack is on the small size. I've used plenty of packs, and they all fit the same, until this one. I felt like it didn't overlap as much as other packs do. For me this wasn't a problem and I fit in just fine, but for others who may be on a bigger side, you may want to try it on first before committing to buying one.

Second issue is the back padding section. This section seems to be small width wise. Most other packs wrap around my back slightly, whereas this one is smaller, so the edges don't wrap, but lay against my back. I feel this, and if my pack is on tight enough it can become annoying.

The final issue is with the +6 loops. Many other brands have a small piece of Velco to keep them secure when not being used. The reason I like the 3+6 pack is so that for rec ball games I can just take 3 pods, or for a more serious tourney, I can take up to 9. When I'm playing rec, I would prefer to secure the extra loops.

While it may seem that I am against this pack, that couldn't be farther from the truth. For the price you can find these new, it is hard to beat. The ejection elastic works great, and everything about the pack seems to be well made.

For a smaller player (someone who wears medium sized clothing or smaller), I would think this would fit you well and be a great pack, and I would highly recommend. For those who wear large (like myself) or extra large, it may be on the small side, and you may want to try it on before buying. For those who wear XXL or larger, I would think this pack would be too small for you to be comfortable and useful.

Valken Sports Crusade Harness 3+6 Looks cool, feels good, doesn't slip at all, and even had a bounce. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a higher end pod pack.

This is a flexible pack for whenever you want to play tourney, rec, or scenario ball. Fits a litte bit smaller than alot of other packs but fits well none the less. No bounce when running up the field. Sometimes, when you want to put pods back, its tough getting them back into the loops but other than that, great pack!

I bought this pack brand new foe $30.00. Mine is the red and black color scheme. I like the pattern printed on the back. It kind of has a tron look to it. The pack has proven to be very durable. The stitching and velcro have held up great over the year that I've had it. I've worn it probably 30 times and washed it 3 or 4 times. It's also pretty comfortable. I'm 5'8" and I have a 32" waist and the pack fits me great. The adjustable straps are very, well, adjustable lol I'm sure players of any size won't have a problem fitting tgis pack on. All said and done I'm very pleased with this pack and would buy it again. I definitely recommend this pack

Valken Sports Crusade Harness 3+6 I have used this pack for 1 year now and have not had any problems out of it. It still looks new and it cleans up nicely after a hard day of play.

Valken Sports Crusade Harness 3+6 Delivers everything a player needs to perform and load up hoppers. Velcro is not cheap and remains stuck even when in full sprint.
