I was custom designing a harness on the SpecOps site and I noticed that there is an option to fix your pod holders horizontally instead of vertically. Has anyone done this, and if so how has it worked out for you? I run vertical pods right now and I've had them dump open on me when I've gone to reload. Pics are helpful. Thanks alot.

While horizontal doesn't allow you to carry as many pods, it does have the benefit you described. It also works a little better for "wider" people since they don't have to reach around to the small of their back to get a pod. The downside is, when you pull a pod, it makes your elbows stick out a little farther and may cause you to get shot in the arm if you have a small bunker.

when i first started playing, i had a pod pack that was horizontal. it was great, because it was so comfortable. I never had to worry about dropping pods, and it was easier to put empty pods back in my pack while I was in the woods. the only problem I ever had was that the more pods you have, the highter towards your arpit they stack. this makes them hard to grab. although if you use 4-6 pods, you wount have this problem. 8 or more, and you wont be able to reach the top ones.

i now have a SO recon vest with vertical pods, and even though it is comfy, its a little harder to replace empty pods. it all depends on personal preference.
