Anyone have one? I'm curious how wide they can open...

I'm looking to find a pouch/bag/something to carry an air tank that is about the width of a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi and I'm having trouble getting much perspective from pics online.

you doing HALO or breaching with a torch, man?

eh don't answer that.

on a serious note:
Bottles are heavy. I'd be concerned with HSGI's affinity for shock/bungee cord in carrying a cylinder with a regulator on it. Mainly due to the bounce that would be involved in the shock-cord when moving. I'd want something more like 2" nylon webbing, or at the VERY least 550 cord holding that badboy down.

pics I'm seeing look like it will securely hold a Nalgene bottle (about 32oz). That's somewhere in the ballpark of half the diameter you're talking at best, and WAY less on the weight.

You'd laugh if you knew what I was doing with it.

I'm not super concerned with the weight, I'd probably end up mounting it to a belt with RCS moduloaders with pancake wings, this would be pretty stable and the wide foot print would help with the load, then I would use a padded shoulder harness to further keep the weight off.

Problem is I want to run a small plate carrier or chest rig too, really only need room on the plate carrier for 4 rifle mags but I'm uncertain where I would mount the tank on the plate carrier if I went that route, I can't see the tank being anywhere near comfortable or safe mounted along my back... I don't want to go falling onto a steel tank against my spine

Man, I think you'd really be stretching. If you have a 1L steel tank, I assume it would have a regulator, some other hardware we're talking about what 18#? Why not an AL tank? Is it a bail out bottle you're carrying?

Pretty sure DBT made a case for some that looked pretty good and carried like a radio pouch on a plate carrier/vest.

Ok, I confess Im using this for paintball

I bought one of these, justifying it as a cheap fun way to get some training in and it works! Accuracy is decent enough for 15-20 yards and it's not bad for force on force training. It's helping me practice mag changes without getting bored just cycling dry mags.



I have a few different sized tanks with the largest being about the size of a 2 liter and the smallest being about the size of a 20oz bottle.

They make these things but the quality really looks like shit and I was hoping I could find a better solution -

But this might work http://www.tactailor.com/ search for the "joey pouch".

Is Whiskey two four a paintball site? Or are they a legit gear maker? They were referenced in the Mailce clip thread.

Take a look at the Milspec Monkey bottle corset.

I was about to guess an airsoft gun with a PolarStar conversion (basically an electro-pneumatic spool valve in an airsoft body).

I'd be looking for dedicated pouches for your tank. I've got a bunch of BT pouches with molle webbing that hold 140rd tubes. I'd be very surprised if they don't make a tank pouch.

Are you running that thing on CO2 or HPA? Personally I could never stand running remote for paintball; always ended up with a bottomline setup or an old-school back-bottle. The mask tends to fuck up your ability to use sights with a traditional stock.

I'm running HPA...this thing does NOT like Co2.. Had major issues running co2 directly to the ASA and I'm sticking with HPA now.

I am using a dye i4 mask and it gets me close enough that I think I can run a PA microdot with a riser and a 45 degree offset to get me where I want to be at the public fields. Private woods ball I'll probably just run goggles and a face gaiter of some type and use the riser without the 45 degree.
