Okay i have a pod belt with a remote line going to it for the co2 gas. I secured the gas in with velcro straps but the top of my remote line keeps hitting me in the back of my spine and it hurts when i run. Any ideas?

You could put velcro on the line and on your torso and tether the line to yourself. Or try a remote cover.

holey. maybe a camelbak will help? its got padded backd and if you put it between your spine and the remote's top, it may help a bit? i didnt see any D rings or mounts for a shoulder suspender system..and i wonder, does the pack bounce around when running?

I have the same problem, shorter torso on a girl and all... back when i insisted on using a remote line, i ghetto rigged my pod pack so i could strap it sideways instead. had velcro-adjustable pod holders, but it wasted a lot of room. i also tried the camelback thing, worked a lot better, but then i started hitting my head on it during crazy slides. never really found a great fix other than a stubby tank (where i could just strap it to my gun anyway). Sorry if this was completely unhelpful, lol. id like to see a good answer too.

Maybe find a way to make the tank sit lower? cut out the bottom, use elastic as a bottom so that it sits lower on your back?

I have the same issue because of my thin torso, you just have to arange the pack in a different way. I have the straps crossing downwards, otherwise my tank just flops all over the place. I'm gonna get a vest though so the tank is sideways. The pack still TINKLEes me off even when i dont have it flopping about because of the dump valve prodding me in the back ever time i bend backwards.

I think a sideways tank solves the problem the best, thats what i'm gonna do anyway.

Buy a Y-Harness from a surplus store, poke 2 holes in the belt part for attaching the harness to the front, and 2 holes in the back of the tank pouch for securing the back strap. And then just adjust it a bit higher so your butt don't shake that thing enough to hit you in your spine. It is only a simple $5 dollar mod which I've been using for the past 4 years and still works great. Another thing you might do is tape the straps after you adjusted it to the perfect height so it doesn't come back down.

I have the 2+1 Pod Pack and every time I play I come back with a huge bruise on my spine.

People will say, "How many times did you get shot there"

"None, that is my pod pack"

I would try a camelbak (I actually am) but when I look at the new Camelbaks, it doesn't look like there is a whole for the top of the tank to come out of for the remote???

Anyone know something?

You could get a Camelback with extra room in it for a bicycle helmet and stuff the tank in there like I do.

I've played that way. Cheaperthandirt.com has a hydration pack that works well. I modified one with velcro to stay very flat and hold a tank in place in the main compartment. Then you just keep your pods on the pack.

You could look at other remotes. Do you have the style with the longer knob about the same diameter as the tank reg, or the one with the wide flat knob? Might want to try the other kind.

Can you use HPA and mount it upside down? I dunno. These guys had good suggestions too.

Heh, you kids and your huge heavy tanks. You are making me love my 3.5 oz tank even more. Putting it on my Phantom makes it even more balanced.
