Man, I get pissed if I lose 1-2 10rd tubes a day. I actually started putting identification stickers on my pods.

I see little reason to go for transparent pods unless you're stuffing them with non-paint items, i.e. I carry a "spare parts" tube and a "tools" tube, and it makes it easier to see individual items.
I haven't bought pods in ages as I don't even wear them on-field, but closest I've seen are pods which have 3 out of those 4 properties.
"Accuracy by aiming."
Definitely not on the A-Team.
