i have that problem as well, though its really not a problem now, i have learned to adapt and overcome, but yes it does feel low.
i bought size XL and it seems to work good enough for me...and i aint no little guy either

My sizing shows as a large, but it almost makes me want to go a size shorter so the pods don't hang down very far. To the owners of this vest, is there a lot of room to adjust it out more, or is it pretty limited as far as the chest and shoulder areas?

The pods do sit down low, but I don't mind it, closer to my center of gravity. Part of the weight issue is the fact that you are being loaded down in the back with all that paint, and hardly anything at all in the front. So unless you carry depleted uranium slugs in your front pockets this is going to be back heavy. To compensate for this the inside waist belt will hold it to you so it doesn't slouch down so much and handle the weight a little bit better.
Overall I like it, except my remote cord gets caught up on the right side pouch, though that is fixable with some tinkering.
You can take the shoulders in or out a few inches. There are also 3 straps on each side that can be adjusted in or out about 4-5 inches, with the XL I have them cinched all the way up.
On the bright side, if I am wearing a sweatshirt or even playing a winter game with a coat on, that extra room will be great.

I think I got the Broadsword 6, Or something like that. The Broadsword that was out when OmniPat came out. It was a couple years back now. Got it with the Fushion 7's.

but yes they are really adjustable and fit just fine..
infact.. for the first time in a long time.. i loaded up my vest.. (full pods, filled 90/45) and put it on... felt like the ghost busters in court.. but after wearing it around for it bit it seemed like nothing.. plus.. in paintball.. you get lighter as the game progresses (empty pods = less weight)
