After playing a long 8 hour day of paintball, my 2+1 Special Ops Pod pack was killing me. I came home with a huge bruise on my spine from where the tank stuck out and attached to my remote. I saw one guy out on the field with a camelbak. I thought I would try and give one of those a try, though I have a few questions.

1) Can any camelbak open up to allow a paintball tank to fit inside?

2) Can any camlebak have the remote come up in the center of the back? I have seen one, but the only ones that I can find for sale are ones that the remote would have to come out of the shoulder.

I want a small one, that will not get in the way. I found the Thermobak 3L and it looks like what I need. But I need to know if it will allow me to do what I asked in question 1 and 2.

What I am trying to say, has anyone found a great camelbak for carrying your air tank?

If you do, please give me a few suggestions of what you reccommend.

Thanks!

I can answer question 1. Yes.

Oh, you want more info? :dry: I have a look-alike that I got from [Wal-Mart], and it has a pouch for water, but also another large pouch where you could fit an air tank.

As for question 2, mine has a hole in the center for the straw/tube to come out of, so I'm sure you could find a model like that. But wouldn't you want your remote to feed UNDER your arm? For that, you'd need scissors, needle, thread.

Ok thanks. Yea I want the remote to go under my arm. But the Camelbak I am looking at has it running out of the shoulders so it would be right next to my neck.

Do you get what I am saying,

Thanks for the help.

I have been through many a camelbak. I am familiar with very many different sized/shaped models of the camelbak system. Is it possible to get what you want from camelbak? Yes-but it's gonna cost you a little. As long as you don't mind payin up, you should have no problem getting what you need. What size tank do you carry?

I went to www.camelbak.com and was gonna grab a pic or two of a camelbak that would work, but there's so many you'd be better just going and looking for yourself. Once you find one you like, go to www.froogle.com and search for it.

I was looking at the Thermonbak 3L. And I will most likely just be using my little 48/3000 tank. Do you know if the Thermobak 3L will work? Thanks.

The Mini Ambush style camelback should fit your needs. I was looking into this with the same criteria before I just got a vest.
