ops gear has two. one paintball one and one for the military butt both look the same. so i did some looking and found the military one for cheap at this web sight.

http://www.tacgearstore.com/product_info.p...products_id/185


are they both the same pack, just one has pods in it?

in other words. will the second one hold 100rd pods in the side and back pockets and a 48CU 3000 tank and a 20oz tank in the big pocket. just like the first one?? iknow its hard to tell

Yes. I believe they are manufactured by Condor. Not as durable as 1000 Denier Cordura, but they aren't bad. I got one for free so it goes to games as my tool kit/spare parts bag. The zippers are surprisingly wonderful, I have had things jam them many times and they keep working with no broken teeth or anything.

They appear to be fairly identical, but I'd advise against buying them.

They just seem like they'd be extremely annoying to use and get pods in/out of. Unless you already have a MOLLE platform (in this case I'd suggest these: http://www.specialopspaintball.com/shop/pr...&CAT=104205 ) If not, I'd suggest just getting an NXe pod pack. They're great packs.

Except that the pouches he posted hold more, are MOLLE, not interlock (like the ones you posted), and have a great general utility. There's no part of his post stating he has an Operative vest, so MOLLE might be the way he has to go, and buying a NXe pack kinda defeats the purpose of having a modular vest.

Well you'd have to buy more than one pod pack, 4 pods is enough for any one game, (200 in a hopper + 4 pods = 760 balls. Unless you're playing a lot of speedball being a back player and laning all the time, you're never going to use that much in one game). Plus, the but pack he was looking for holds 100 round pods. Holding 900 balls, minus the space used for air tanks (he said in the main pocket), gives it about 400 rounds, less than 4 normal pods.

I suggested the NXe pod pack ONLY if he didn't already have a vest, so I don't think that defeating the purpose of having a vest is a problem.

Sorry about the interlock not MOLLE thing, I wasn't really paying attention. Here are MOLLE pods http://www.specialopspaintball.com/shop/pr...sp?SKU=320+0111 which will be better than those buttpacks. Its all preference though, and I'm just giving my opinion. You might like different things.

ya, im thinking about mounting it on the back bottom of my vest to hold more pods in the back insted of using the pod holders in the front. and, what is the differance between molle and interlocking?

OOps I forgot to address part of the issue here...

As others have said, YES I would recommend AGAINST using one of these as a pod holder. You will find yourself fumbling with the pocket flaps (unless you modified them) and the pockets themselves would need to be elasticized to keep the pod upright and ready to grab. The center pouch could hold one heck of a huge tank but would need to be stabilized or it will be shifting around when you move.

There are MUCH better ways to carry your gear!
