They're getting really hard to find. For a few years they were super hot. I think a lot of companies didn't get the rights to use the camo patterns that they were using, and got slappped for it.
The ability to carry water/camelback and a radio is game changing.

For sure. The big thing for me was the camelback pouch. That balanced out the paint load up front to the point where it was all comfortable. Mine's plain OD green, which suits me just fine.

No MoRe VeZtZ...PaInTbAlL iS dYiNg!

Sorry... just had to vent a little after reading through a little bit of a derp style statement elsewhere on the site. Some people just default to (insert topic) is dying any time something's going on they're not in favor of, or don't have all the info on and misunderstand.

Anywho, I'd looked at ANS's site, looks like they've got a decent selection of vest options. These days I might be tempted to opt for something lightweight from the actual tactical world full of MOLLE loops and just build my own, though.

If you do that, make sure that you've secured a pod pack. And then buy 1 or 2 more for extra, just in case. I like my MOLLE loops, other than that. It also kinda seems like paintball companies don't know how MOLLE is supposed to attached, based on how they create them on packs. They're never as tight to the vest as they should be, by design.

I like how my DYE vest is pretty much able to have whatever I want to add to it, it's a very useful thing. Without anything attached, it's very lightweight.

I don't think the average person with webbed gear knows how to properly attach them. Although there are standards for PALS webbing on gear.

I mean... youtbe exists. I figured it out really fast.

Also ben, check out the sizes of the ANSgear vests. it's pretty much down to the XXXL or the XS sizes for a lot of them.

I guess the BT vests are still in full stock. They also require MOLLE pod packs.

The velcro on my Planet Eclipse pack **** the bed the last time I went out to play. I'm debating getting the velcro fixed rather than get a new one. There's nothing good like the old NXE packs out there these days. I miss the days when we had Redz, NXE, ER and so many other good, but straightforward brands for packs.

It shouldn't be hard to add new velcro to a pack.

I dunno how many of you follow the NFL, but the NCF east division has a total combined wins, which is less than the the combined wins of the top two teams in every other division.

They have 12 wins split between 4 teams in 10 weeks of play. Truly inspirational football must be happening on those teams.

I just know the lions are losing their *** off right now, and i laugh, because the whole state is slowly starting to turn against them.

Its a shame because Staffard isn't a bad quarterback, it's just that the rest of the organization is a dumpster fire.

It's always interesting to see who's worse. The Washington (Redskins) Football Team, Detroit Lions or Cincinnati Bengals. They're all horrific organizations in the last 20-25 years.

Lions have been bad since the fords bought them 60 years ago, the owners fricken suck.
