No...I bet a couple of the KLR guys won't, either.

Sadly, no. A lot of people don't carry enough water. to be able to fill your water pack from a water source and filter it, can save your live. I have seen this too many times.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

Next time you're the kitchen looking for a drink of water, open the tap and imagine you had to suck the water out of the tap, instead of pressurized water coming out... same idea here..

Geigerrig's moto: NEVER SUCK AGAIN!

Never had problems with pressure with my camelbak. I've got a fair amount of stuff in the bag pushing the water out. Thing with hydration is that you're meant to sip small quantities often. Maybe that's why people run out of water all the time. Don't tend to run out before I run out of fuel.

A cool image of a GEIGERRIG Hydration Engine, with in-line filter attached, being refilled at a well in Africa for on-the-go hydration and sharing. Just received these images today.

Sharing Water Without Sucking On Nasty Bite Valve

The in-line filtration for on-the-go refill at local wells in Africa provided some cool opportunities to safely share enjoy a refreshing swig with the locals.

From village to village, from well to well > They Sprayed their GEIGERRIG hydration pack to drink, cool, clean (body and gear), share and filter...and at the end of the day, they turn it inside out for cleaning. Some cool GEIGERRIG pics to receive from adventures in Africa.

Very cool indeed

I am impressed with my 1200. Just replaced the battery charger for my camera and plan to do a review in the next few days.
I am still sorting out a couple things. Stay tuned...

BPA free

Dear Bob Geiger,

I was able to establish that the geigerrig is BPA free but only by clicking on a photo and then enlarging it. There was a round seal in the bottom left corner that stated it (as well as being PVC free and something else free). I don't think you mention it in any of your videos either (at least not in the ones I saw). When you do a website update I think it would be good to make that "PBA free" etc. a bit more visible. Especially among parents BPA free is a biggie. Or it could simply be that it is on the website but I am too thick to notice it

Anyway, just some feedback that I hope you can use. The product looks awesome. Last but not least, thanks for serving in the USMC.

Cheers

I just called the company and got a real person first thing! No recording, no waiting, and no BS!

I was told a little bit about the company and was asked to call again after I got the unit and tried it out for a bit.

I also found out you could use the larger bladder with the 500 pack if you wanted to.

A long time ago I was a Navy Corpsman. I got assigned to Camp Pendelton and worked with and for Marines. They have a Jarhead running the program here. I like that. I think the company is going places. As soon as I get my "code" from GB, I'm placing my order.

Pete
