After 2 weeks of "hydration research", I just placed my order for a Shuttle and insulated tube.

Thanks to everyone here for your detailed information and honest reviews!

Just put my order in. Tried to use the code but it didn't work, so I put a note in with my order. Hope I can still get in on the filter deal

Looks like a super-cool product. Can't wait to check it out.

I did the same. The next day I had an e-mail from Geigerrig telling me they're shipping me the filter.

Can't wait to get it and try it out.

Got mine today.

I just got the bladder because I have a riding jacket with a huge pocket in the back.The 2 liter bladder fits when fully filled and pressurized (just barely but it fits).

It's about 1/2 the size depressurized than it is once you've pumped up the pressure. So for my use it's best to pressurize it after putting it in the pocket.

First impression is that this thing is awesome. Plenty of pressure when you need it. You can also depressurize it and it will still work like other systems where you just suck the water through the bite valve (I don't have the filter yet, which might make it more difficult). This is significant because it takes up less space when depressurized.

It obviously works best fully pressurized but can provide "turbo-assisted-sucking" when partially pressurized, for when you still want to conserve space.

On first use I didn't notice any plastic taste or anything so that's good.

I would like to see them offer some parts for customization. I know they are designed for the backpacks and systems they sell, but since I'm customizing mine for a slightly different set-up, I would like to be able to log on and order extra tubing, right-angle quick-connectors etc.

I would also like to see them offer an insulated cover for just the bladder perhaps with some added protection for the connectors, and maybe a handle and a convenient place to hook a carabiner.

Those are minor nit-picks for use outside the scope of the intended design, so maybe they aren't even nit-picks.

Overall I think this thing is awesome.

Mine arrived while I was out of town, and the filter arrived today separately direct from the guys at Geigerrig

Service was outstanding, got an email a few hours after my booking letting me know the filter would come separate and not to worry, then another email from the fulfillment guys to make sure everything was as expected

Product arrived a few days later while I was out of town

A+ Service from the guys, looking forward to testing this rig out :)

just getting around to using my grig for the first time. filled it up half way with warm water to flush the tubes. have it pumped up pretty good and not seeing a wow spray. but it does push the water out. not all of it though. i have aprox 3" of water that won't come out. bottom right of bag has a picture with the words removable drink tube above it. those words are where the water level is. if i was out riding right now i would want those 3" of water. how come it is not coming out?

new toy so was looking around the web site to make sure i was doing things right. this page has a rendering that shows the pump connected to the bottom of the pack. while this video clearly shows the pump connected to the top of the pack. something like this could cause a flow issue. which is the right way?

FYI... My pump connects to the top. It sprays pretty far, like in the video.

Geigerrig Reserve "Feature"

@rthuey,

You've just discovered the unadvertized Geigerrig reserve "feature" as the hydration engine traps an appreciable amount of fluid on the liquid side when under pressure that only comes available when you let out the air. Although it somewhat disappointing, it's amazing how nice it is to find that little extra water when you thought you were totally out. It's a far better feature than when the drink tube comes off the quick release fitting and empties most all of your water onto your backside before you realize what happened.

As far as I can tell, the fluid is trapped by virtue of the fact that it becomes evenly distributed by the pressure, such that gravity can no longer pull it down to the drink tube.

I received mine (just the 3Liter bladder system) a few days ago.

Haven't tried it yet.

Two observations: (especially if you intend to use it in non-Geigerrig bags)

1- drinking tube is on the short side.
Better to make it extra long, user can trim as necessary.

2- bag design is vertically oriented.
I.e: it's longer than it is wide.



I'm using mine in a Lowe Alpine AirZone Z 20

Fortunately for me, the bag design itself is also vertically oriented - so it fit.
I can see it not fitting in those square'ish & compact design bags.
