Geigerrig Rig 1600
Price Paid: sample provided by AllTrails.com for testing and review
Geigerrig manufactures a hydration system that is unlike any other on the market. Instead of sucking from the bladder, Geigerrig uses pressure to spray water wherever you need it — for drinking, cooling off, etc. Interesting innovation.
Out of the box, the Rig 1600 looks rugged and built to last. It’s constructed of ballistic nylon and has two main pockets. The rear-most of these includes mesh organizers, a separate fold-down nylon flap that holds smaller items and a key hook. Two smaller pockets sit on either side of the pack large enough for snacks or compact camera. There’s an obligatory iPod pocket with headphone port on the very rear and two hip pockets included on the removable belt.
The fit of the Rig 1600 can be customized using standard strap adjustments, a chest strap and waist belt. No load lifters are available. Channeled mesh padding on pack’s back provide comfort and ventilation.

Stop sucking down water as you gasp for air when you carry the pressurized Geigerrig Rig 1600 Hydration Pack on your next adventure. The patented Ogwa Hydration reservoir uses a Pressure Bulb on one shoulder strap to keep the 100 ounces of water pressurized so you can spray it into your mouth when you bite down the Surge Protector Valve. The easy-to-clean slide-top reservoir eliminates the hassle of sucking a near-empty bladder when you're already out of breath on the hill or in the desert.
