You can reach either side with either hand. (What do you mean you can't shoot well with both hands?)
You can look down and see which pods are full. I start with the Left bottom, then the Right bottom. Once I get to the top ones I know I have been shooting way too much!
Fits right on my hips, distributing the load on long scenario games.
The biggest issue is the profile that is presented as the pods stick out father then me. However, all things being equal, if the extra two inches of pod on you hip get hit, most likely something much bigger was also sticking out. Be glad they hit the pod.
Hard to roll front your front to your back or vice versa if you forget to prop yourself up a little using your arms and abs.
Depending on how you low crawl you may have a hard time getting to them. Though, rolling slightly left or right always fixed that small issue for me.
I used to have a vertical, but I disliked trying to remember which ones I emptied, HATED not being able to reach it easily (I have a slight shoulder injury, too!). Also, had a few fall out, but that was more me just not paying attentiuon than a fault of the harness. Still, less likey to fall out of a horizontal.
"So what if you shoot 15bps, but I only need to hit you with one"
Then I learned how much fun it is to hit someone once every 1/15th of a second!

Ditto. I love my 6+1 pack: it was cheap, carries alot of paint and i slapped some suspenders on them to distribute the weight and i can book it when i have to so....
