Geigerrig Rig 500

Small, portable, capacity, maybe the air and water hoses are a bit "too cumbersome". Notice: Too small for day hikes, too big carry along a full mult-iday backpack (~45 Liters or more) That plastic taste (and at the beginning, even odor) that comes with the water out of the hose. I have washed the bag, but most probably I will have to use food grade detergent to clean it once and for all. The manufacturer recommends to wash it thoroughly and to store for an entire night water with a whole lemon… Full review

UltrAspire Momentum Race Vest

Fit: Sizing is usually true to size. UltrAspire's website offers a fitting guide for those who are unfamiliar with their products.  Comfort: No issues with chafing from the pack even when loaded to full capacity. Have used this pack for up to 11 continuous hours with no chafing or discomfort. Would always recommend a Body Glide type product if doing multi-hour or full day outings where you would be wearing a vest.  Capacity: Fluid capacity without a bladder is what makes this a very good vest… Full review

CamelBak Rim Runner

I purchased this pack for day hikes and I wanted a hydration pouch because if I carry a bottle in my pack, I don't drink enough. I am too lazy to get it out of the pocket it is in and drink. I like its size for a day outing, enough space for a rain jacket and more. The straps make it easy to tailor it to the size you want. The quality is good. Bottom line is I really like this pack. I am a woman, 5'7", and this pack fits me fine, so I would call this pack unisex. I find it comfortable. The straps… Full review

Geigerrig Tactical 1600

This amazing hydration pack has an almost indestructible hydration engine that is easy to clean and room to bring everything you need for any daylong adventure. Disclaimer: I was provided with this pack by Geigerrig to trial and review. I have had a Geigerrig Rig 1600 (their non-tactical pack of the same capacity) that I purchased as a consumer two years ago, and throughout this review I will make comparisons between the two. (Left: Rig 1600 Tactical, Right: Rig 1600)THE SHORT REVIEW I LOVE THIS… Full review

CamelBak Scout

Although marketed as a child's hiking pack, the Scout can be used by adults as well. It's lightweight and has enough space for a small amount of gear and snacks, and comes with a 1.5 litre water reservoir. Offering minimal shift, I have used this pack as an introductory running pack. I would recommend the Scout to anyone interested in getting into endurance running, particularly if they are on a budget. As a 5 foot tall adult beginning to take running more seriously, I was thrilled to find this… Full review

CamelBak Rim Runner

Overall good product. Use for longer day hikes. A generally good product. The straps can cause a little fatigue around the neck and shoulder on longer hikes. Definitely for walking and NOT running. Holds plenty of water with additional side pockets for two water bottles. easy access to gear with a full zip opening. Holds plenty of food/gear for a full day of hiking. For taller people the waist strap rides high and is better just taken off. It is great for hydration with an easy to fill large Camelbak… Full review

Geigerrig Rig 700M

These are the best packs I've ever used! High quality materials and well engineered. I bought my first pack for mtn biking. Since then I've gotten rid of all of my other packs and replaced them all with Geigerrig. What sold me on the quality was a Saturday mountain biking trip. On a fast (30+mph) downhill section the rider in front me went down. I also went down and landed on a rock the size of a cantaloup. I didn't feel it due to the pressurized bladder. The only damage was a blown zipper. One… Full review

Geigerrig Rig 1200

Best out there!!! I own four Geigerrigs! The Rig, Guardian, 700 and 1200. One of these packs are used daily depending on my task for the day. My 1200 is used to pack in along with the rest of the my gear I carry to my cabin. From there my Rig takes over.  The 1200, like the others, has a hydration engine like no other! Being able to feel pressurize and spray water is a must in the back country. Being able to irrigate a wound, give your dog water, wash out your eyes, rinse dished etc. and unlike… Full review
