I've been thinking up this idea for bout 3 weeks. Iam all about things when it comes to playing. Comfort, gear being secure, and easily accessible. Its a new design for a harness. All the present harnesses are either vertical, or horizontal.
This new harness would be slanted at a downward agnle. at about 45degree. This can work 2 different ways. The harness could either be flat agains the back, about 3 pods on each side max. You could prob. put those big elastic bands to carry 1 or 2 extra between them. The other way would to have a Tank Pouch in the middle of the back, but now the other way is the pods would be pushed outward, possibly makin the pods a little easier to access, and closer to the sides of your boddy (so if you were looking down from the top of a player it would stick out like this "^" not by too much, but just enough.) It would be a half shell with an elastic band on the back and velcro flaps to secure the pods. This way you can fit any pod in the harness. The front would have 2 velcro straps and one to come down from the top to keep them secure while doing some head first dives into the ground. It can also have some shoulder straps that come across the body for a little more support.
Thats just the basic idea. You could go all out, and attach the same pouches to the back of one of the spec-ops vests.
Great idea. This isn't completely necessary, seeing as it would help out enough in the first place, but you could fit it with the Interlock system and put your pouch as a new Interlock accessory.

this is a longshot..but spec ops i have to see this even attempted... but i want a paintball sword. if you guys wont make it ill make it one day. i no its skeptical, but think of battles of midevil times, reinactments... it opens a whole new realm of paintball. castles will have new meanings, charges will b more glorious i mean it sounds sooo sick. how u would make it, i was thinkin something liek this.
Handle-rubber, includes paint poured inside a capsule/pod <small>
Blade- an absorbant foam covers the actual "blade" of the sword, and the blade itself would b more of a sturdy tube with small holes that when u press a button on the handle, it releases more paint into the foam. tis is so u can make sure u mark the targets u hit.
Hilt- sponge-like inside so u can pour paint, when u put it away, it paints itself again.
Shields would b cool too.
obviously the swords have to b soft, because u no theres gonna b people out there willing to go full striking power. with a foam/sponge like outside and like a rubber/other soft material as the tube for the paint and the "blade", it shuldnt b that much of a problem. its a longshot, but a paintball sword would be pretty nice.
Yeah, but then is it really paintball
? Besides, if you want to do a big game, I highly doubt you could get even half of the players to sacrifice their long range just to take the risk of a giant paint-filled foam sword getting their mask so bad that they would have to sit out the next weekend's game because the paint of his mask would show him as plain as day. And, if they don't, then you will be charging a heavily armed and well-protected bunker with one teammate shooting back at them, enough people in it to put out fifty balls per second, and your only hope of survival is that flopsy, the four-foot-long target, here in your right hand, who can hopefully save the day.

I had an idea when reading a thread about paintball shotguns.
Using a CO2 loading system like a magnum (slides out with three holes for 12 gram CO2 cylinders, or load them from the back) and three barrels, each barrel has a small mag that spring loads about 7 or 8 paintballs dirctly into the barrel, then it launches them simultaniously. Just thought something like that would be pretty bad @ss.
Yeah, and sell shells that could take those 6mm airsoft-sized paintballs and make grapeshots out of them like with real shotguns. Fifty sold in the first month.
