I am going to my first scenario and I am not sure if I should buy a vest or just use my pack that I use for speedball. Im not a newb FYI :)....I am interested in the valken vtac echo vest. But if it isn't worth it I would just like to know so.

Just wear your pod pack

Also, why would you go to a scenario at this time of year? I stopped playing outdoor in November

Vests are nice if you want to add pouches ext. for extra gear, carry extra pods or tanks but definately aren't a necessity. Some people also like the vests to move the weight off their lower back, Scenerios can make for long days with a lot of walking through rough terrain. Moving the weight to your sholders can make it easier as the day moves on. If this is your first Scenerio I would use the gear you have and make sure you like this style of play before investing in specialized gear. If it's something you find you like you can look into some specific gear for when you run Scenerios.

One thing to consider is getting a camelback. Some vests have pouches for water blatters and some don't. If your running an all day or multiday Scenerio a cammelback is a necessary investment.

I run my normal pack and a camelback. I wouldn't blow money on a vest unless you've tried one on. I personally find them binding and restricting.

any Military Camel Back is a paintball Camel Back. I can fit 3 Pods in the elastic straps on it. Also if you get a MOLLE vest, you can loop the camel back through the MOLLE loops. And if you don't have a place to put a tank (if you run a remote) you can put it in there.

I bought a tac vest for  just for scenarios years ago,rarely use it unless I run a remote airline or magfed

I run with a 4 pod podpack for most scenarios,you'll find that you'll get alot more eliminations at scenarios,by the time I run out of paint(2-3 hours)  I need a break anyway

I'd go vest... Keeps the weight off your lower back...  Just be sure to try it before you buy it.

I'd say just stay with your pack. Also, it got to 90 the other day in Tucson. I've been able to play all winter.

Pack. You'll carry as much if not more paint plus its around your waist, not wrapped around your whole torso!


Meh
