    Looking for a new harness. Need advice...

    Hi. Also posted this on the nation. Looking into getting a new harness. My last two were NXE harnesses. And both of them the elastic ejectors stretched out. Newer models in different brands seem to have better elastic. Need people's experience with the following ones:

    Empire liquid: says they have a hinge so you don't need to take them off to reload. Anyone use this and how are they? http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=131363620378

    Empire action: seems pretty sturdy. Prob the cheapest on my list: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=151394847925

    Hk army eject: seems similar to the action pack. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=371180479932

    GI sportz race: most expensive. Is it worth the extra money? http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=390967523667

    Valken redemption: at that $60 range. How does it compare with the other $60 ones? Like the action pack and hk army? http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=121299450516

    Looking for pros and cons and any opinions. I currently have a $60 credit with eBay that has to be used at once so I am looking to spend at least $60. I am willing to throw in a few bucks more if it's worth it. Also if there is something that is not listed that I should be looking at please feel free to mention it. I play mostly woodsball but occasionally indoor. I have been playing a long time, but my last harness I bought was about 5 years ago. I am long overdue. Thanks everyone!!

    they're not on your list, but i have been using the new bunker king packs, the ones without the straps. and hk army has the same concept with their zero g packs (i think i heard the hk army zero g packs are rebranded bunker king packs).

    ive been digging them a lot.

    I just have regular pods and really don't want to replace them. Was really looking into ones that have straps to secure the lids. But I will consider the bunker king pack. I have heard good things about them so it is a possibility. Do you use special pods with it?

    I second BNKR Kings harness. Comfortable and works well. Used it with regular pods for and didn't have any problems. Just recently upgraded to the virtue pods myself too

    The Bunker King pack is nice, but it often happens in the field where you knock the lids loose on the pods and you loose your paint. That is where a pack with straps over the lids is a nice option.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
