They fit any pack, they are only a bit thicker than a normal pod.

This is false. As I have experienced, some packs are smaller than others and make getting lock lids out next to impossible in a game. That being said I wouldn't worry about it, but I also wouldn't be completely surprised if that happens.


I love you.

They aren't that thick, if your pack doesn't take them you could probably stretch it a bit.

One question to the OP: why do you insist on lock lids? They are very expensive and don't have many if any benefits over the standard $1.00 pods IMO. If I were you I would get the cheap ansgear pods for $1.00 a pod.

It's a pod man, there's no reason to over think it. It WILL get stolen and/or it WILL break.

hold slightly more paint not much but if you have 4 or 5 in your pack it'll add up, a bit easier to open. the nub on some of the pods can tend to irritate your thumb after awhile if you have to press up on them constantly, like if you were playing speed ball constantly without much of a stop besides refilling on air and paint. its preference really. if he wants it, he wants it.

IMO Lock Lids are not worth it, they are the first thing pod thieves go for, honestly you have to guard them like Golumn and the ring. 

I personally have only really have ever used them in a well broken in Eclipse Pack and they worked fine for me.

Yea I think Locklids are a bit crap, they are made of super cheap plastic that crack easily, and most of the lids on mine are starting to wear. I shot a guy in the podpack once that had Locklids in and it blew a hole in it.

Locklids are grossly overrated IMHO. The reviews of them are littered with people getting ones that won't even open when you flip the tab (2 out of my 4 have had that issue since day 1). They don't typically fit in a variety of packs because of their length and size, the bumps on the side of the pod don't help at all either. Even the Dye harnesses don't hold them too well (a major fail on Dye's part because they make both after all.)Take a look at the Proto Alpha pods, they fit well and are one of the best quality pods of their type on the market.


I kind of like neck shots, they give other people the impression that I have a social life.
