Yeah I love these pods... use them on my vest. Have trouble getting them into the elastic loops but otherwise these are all I will use.

Good pods. Easy to use. Sturdy. Secure. And they look cool to. Which is nice :P

Also has anyone noticed that this is the third (at least) time this product has been reviewed? :)

I have a bunch of different pods but the only ones I use are the lid locks. With a full load of paint on my Broadsword vest (8 pods), I carry 1280 paintballs plus what's in my hopper. The only time they come open is when i drop them and I didn't shut them right. Other than that, I have had a problem with them. I've seen pods take a hit and blow apart, not these.

they can come open if you dont shut them properly, but thats not nearly as often as my old pods broke. as for the price, if they dont get stolen, then they make up for themselves because you dont have to keep buying new ones because they dont break real easily.

*raises hand to be the black sheep on this thread*

I used to swear by DYE locking pods, now I just swear at them!:P

I cant count the number of times the button got pressed while in my vest, popping the lock but the strap holding the pod poo, and when I went to draw the pod, dump-o-rama:(

That and on a number of occasions, I went to toss a full pod to a squadmate with both of us under cover and the darn thing popped upon either when he snatched it or upon impact on the ground, and it was specifically tossed gently to try to avoid that.

Strangely, I get GREAT service out of the cheapy $1.97 pods you can buy at Wal Mart.

*grumbles* This sucks greatly as they hold more balls and come in better colors than anything else I have found!!

I too must be a black sheep with Dye lock lids.

A team mate of mine has had trouble with his. Every time he rolls over on his, they flex slightly and break a ball or too. Once or twice he has gone to grab a pod (he has a Broadsword vest) and ended up dumping the paint because a ball broke inside of it. He has several that he has accidentally chipped or cracked because of the flexible body.

Good to hear these good comments. These problems don't really seem to bad. Hopefully I'll pick some up soon :)

I dig mine. They hold plenty of paint, and don't open when I don't want them to. I would like to see some come in a 100 RD size.

Got 4 for free from my friend and sadly, he didn't take care of one, won't open so easily now. So if you get em (great pods btw) make sure to keep them clean because when they get too dirty, they won't open.
