I'll second any of these posts. However, I'm giving them a 9/10 for two SMALL reasons.
While the slide-lock is great, some Harnesses may have trouble with these. I used to have an NXe 4+1, and to secure the pods, I had to push them far enough in so the velcro on the strap would work. However, on occasion the slide would catch the pod when I pulled it out, and I would dump paint. These events were few in number, but none the less annoying.
Another problem is the size. While it's also a good thing, they are hard to fit into the elastic straps on my Flurry Vest and elastic straps in general. While this let's me know they are secure, it is hard to get them out in the middle of a firefight, and impossible to replace into the strap after I use them.
I got 6 of these off eBay for $20 shipped, and got another free, and I carry all 7 on the field. I bought these after having other's break during play, some even from just me doing a quick roll over them. These, I am pleased to say, have yet to even crack after 6 months of medium use.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
