nXe makes quality packs, I personally love mine, and would prefer it over an empire.

I LOVE my Empire 4+5 pack. Not sure what year or model it is, but it's got great support, it's small, it looks nice and I NEVER have any problems with pods falling out. NXE packs are ok... but I would tell you to try both types on, see which feel better on your back and which you can move better with.

I personally don't like alot of the newer NXE packs due to the size of them.

...oh yeah! It also has a hidden pocket in the pack. There is a zipper on it and you can use it to hang on to your goodies, barrel plug, or w.e. else you don't want falling out during play.

Not on your list, but I love my Redz Dimension pack. The MOST comfortable pack I've ever had on, sometimes I forget it's there. I have the 4.4 version, which is a 4+3.

I second this post...

Otherwise, you just really have to try them on and see what you like the feel of the best.

note: I have a redz 3+3 for sale right now! they're amazing.

out of the two listed: NXE, because empire stuff gets all loose like sleeve of wizard, Empire packs tend to tear faster than they should.

Their pants sure do... My '05 Inverts are like cow hipped. Really baggy.(Got my '07 JT Team's comming in the mail to fix that :D)

I did notice that they fabric freyed a little on the pack after being worn every weekend for almost a year now... But it's holding up pretty good for me.


...just remembered the stitches on the Empire padded area popped a little as well... leaving a corner that sometimes pokes out.

I found what my pack is... It's an older Empire Action Pack 4+5
