    Got the strap from divers-supply.com. Was using it on my 100cf aluminum tank. Wish I would have got the blue color now.

    It is for a bigger tank but adjust small enough to work on the Drager tanks.

    Where did you get the valve,  I was thinking of getting the slow flow valve myself. Glad it is not needed.

    I got it from Joe at Air tanks for sale. Thought about the one from Airhog but the microbore hose on the Air tanks for sale is longer. If I had it to do over again I would probably buy the Stickman fill adapter at Air Tanks Plus because that fill adapter would be easier to setup for a cascade system if I got another tank.

    The Slow Flow Valve definitely is not needed IMO.

    I’m thinking of buying one of these tanks. How much are paintball places charging for a fill? Are there other places to get them filled?

    The paint ball place I went to charged $9.00 . My fill experience at the paint ball park was disappointing. Found out the fill amount depends on how much air is in his tanks and their fill system is a fast fill so your tank gets hot. Their compressor kicks on @ 3000psi shuts of @ 4500psi. My first fill settled @ 3000psi after the tank cooled. Went back the next day for a free top off and the tank pressure settled @ 3500psi after the tank cooled. The paint ball park is only open on weekends and I work weekends, the paint ball park is 5 minutes from my work so I had to go on my lunch break. This was starting to be a real hassle to get the tank to 4500psi.
    So yesterday I checked with a couple of fire departments and found one that could and would fill my tank to 4500psi in return for a small donation. So now I have a place that I can get my tank filled on my days off with no hassle. Also the fire station does a slow fill so the tank does not get hot.
    If you go to a fire station take the tank with you and talk to the Captain of Chief on duty let them inspect the tank, explain what you are using it for and make it clear when you say donation that you mean some kind of goods the fire station can use, like coffee, not cash.

    Your best bet is if there’s a dive shop (scuba) near that’ll do 4500psi fills. A lot of paint ball places either can’t do fills that high and/or don’t sufficiently remove moisture from the air they provide. You don’t want moisture getting into the gun. Make sure you check around to see if there’s a place that can fill to 4500psi. You don’t want to get a tank that you can’t get filled. Good luck!

    Almost forgot–I’m lucky to have a dive shop close by that does 4500 fills for $8.

    “DellaDog”Got this one from Amazon, it’s well made.

I have the same carrier, and agree that it’s well made. The shoulder strap is convenient when your hands are full, and the carry handle is comfortable/durable. It’s adjustable enough to work on my 30 min SCBA as well.

I got the Stikman off of ebay.  But if I were to get one of the blue bottles, I wouldn’t have got that particular fill device as the valves on the blue bottles are pretty easy opening-meaning, a “slow flow” valve is not necessary.
