Easy to Refill

I have a Float 22 and have traveled with it and the cylinder and have had no issues. As long as the cylinder is empty and the cylinder head is unscrewed from the cylinder you can fly with it. Its pretty easy to refill too because it is filled with compressed air so scuba and paintball shops can fill it. BCA has a map on their website where you can search for refill centers. I was also considering the ABS pack but you need to send their cylinder back to them to refill it because it is filled with nitrogen so traveling with it and going on trips is more of a hassle. With the BCA cylinder you can just get it refilled when you get to your destination.

Best air system

Use this with the Float 22.

As the previous reviewer said, this tank is very easy to get refilled. One of the main reasons why I went with the float 22 pack over others. The paintball shop by me only charges $2.50 and it literally takes 1min if not less to refill.
