I just bought a bunch of pods and harnesses from ANSgear (for cheap!) and dicovered a few things:

  • There are at least two sizes of pod (100 and 140) and some of the (cheap, as I mentioned) harnesses only fit the smaller size.
  • Some pods spring open at the flick of a thumb, whereas others require hard work (or even two hands) to get open.

Are there certain pods that open more easily (without doing so spontaneously)? Are there ways to fix intransigent lids to make them more pliable?

 

Thanks,

Brook

They will open easier as you use them more.

Some pod packs run smaller than others. NXe packs tend to have a long belt that fits large players pretty well.

I always go with the cheap pods, they are all about the same in design, and I guarantee you will lose or break some, so there's no point in buying the expensive ones.

The due Lockport are probably the easies to open, but aren't worth it at almost 6 dollars a pod.

The pods will break in with use, making the lids easier to open.

PROTIP: Dont buy pods, scavenge pods. I have close to 30 now. DO NOT STEAL, Scavenge.

I have one day a month I reserve for gear that gets throw in the dishwasher...

It consists of Loader Shells and Pods. They come out quite clean.
