91/45 and larger tanks are readily available-I know you can get them from Dye, Crossfire, Pure Energy and I believe MacDev and AGD as well. Any of those will work perfectly fine. Hell, a regular 68/45 will work fine, you'll just have to refill it after every other game or so.

Brand? Pick and choose. The tanks themselves are all basically identical, and they've all got decent recharge rates. If you're really concerned, shell out the extra for a MacDev or AGD tank with an adjustable reg. But any HP output tank (800+ PSI) will work just fine.

Vest, they'll all work just fine, as I believe they all have clips where you can mount the Hammer to.

I think that the sp ops vest will fit 91 and smaller tanks I have a 88/45 pure energy carbon and love it

I personally run two 88/45s. I know there are people out there who use Scuba tanks, and 5-10lb co2 tanks as well.

I found a 110ci 4500psi PMI high pressure tank and was wondering if there are any tank pouches that will fit this size. Plus does anyone know the exact dimensions of this tank? It only cost $160 and will give me 1800 to 2000 shots per fill. Any input?

A crossfire 110/3000 is 14" long(reg tip to butt tip) and 4" in diameter. It will fit in an old style NXE cover(I don't know how old mine is but they don't make this size tank cover anymore I'm pretty sure) I know it will fit in a vest pouch on a specops vest. It will stick out a bit but thats what the velcro straps are for.
Definitely a good deal if its new.

I started with two 88/4500's, but I have moved up to two 110/4500's. I use my customized spec ops vest to carry them and it works great. Mine's quite different from the Broadsword vest in layout. I still use the 88/4500's as backup air in our tank.
