Col Spgs Costco on Nevada.

The new Costco on Nevada in Colorado Springs has 2 pallets of them in stock. I bought one yesterday. Good luck.

Wow never intended to be controversial...next time I will keep the hookups to myself. As a former racer people were always scrounging for gear and tire money, was just passing along a good buy. And yes I did buy a Geigerrig at Costco, it is not Snuffalufagus.

It was a great tip, thanks and keep it up - I visited the Park Meadows Costco later and they were there just like you posted, bought two Geigerrigs as a matter of fact and the Lightspeed sleeping pad. Maybe 6 or so left.

COracer, I appreciate the heads up on any good buys on gear. Thanks.

KawaYamaSaki Ho, Awesome! Thanks for the info! I guess I picked the wrong Springs Costco to check.

Thanks Guys

I love my Wolfman pack. And I have a Geirgerrig, which I bought when they were first getting off the ground. Awesome customer service, but I like my Wolfman version more. Carries more stuff. Geigerrig is run by really good folks, in Utah. And Costco rocks. I am a diehard Costco fan. It's a well-run company, the CEO doesn't get paid a ridiculous amount of money, they treat their employees well, and they have many loyal, long-term employees. I really hate being lectured about where I should be buying my stuff and from whom.

Last Saturday they are (were) in the camping section, to the right of the sierra packs. One verticle stack in cardboard displays. I walked by them a couple times thinking the wide sierra display was all they had. There was even one sierra pack laying on top of the RS1200s. Good luck, this is the best pack I have ever seen. Check out their website videos if you haven't yet. I also contacted them for the free filter and feed tube.

Scored one in Albuquerque

Caught the roadshow on its last day this past Sunday in ABQ Costco. The rep was super cool, and even had slipped a couple 2nd Generation packs into the mix. I got a blue/grey 2nd Gen "Rig 700" pack, and I really think I am going to like it. Thanks for the tip, OP!

Bought my Son and I a Geigerrig from Costco. Used mine probably 10 times and the zipper that holds the bladder broke. My son used his maybe twice and his bladder came apart where you put the slide across so wouldn't pressurize. Took them back to Costco got refund then went and bought them again for another try. When it worked it was incredible. Hopefully we just bought a bad pair.
The only thing I don't like about mine is being 6'4 and 250lbs the chest strap comes clear up to my neck. Wish they made those adjustable along the shoulder strap for us taller folks. Also my tube is way to short. I wish it was about a foot longer. As it is I have to turn my head to even reach it. Not sure if they sell a longer one or not but I gotta get that figured out Pronto...
