Rated5out of5byAshokfromBest product for facially paralyzed userOne of the best investment I have made for my hiking needs. Due to my facial paralysis I could not suck water from regular camelbak tube. I need to pump in the water to my mouth. GEIGERRIG Rig 1200 Hydration Pack is excellent for my needs. Only issue I came across is that the outlet tube connect gets disconnected due to pumping and physical movements during hiking. I have resolved adding a metal clip around the valve so that the valve clip does not get accidentally pushed in resulting disconnect. If, GEIGERRIG may wish to make design improvement, I will be happy to make recommendations.

Rated2out of5byZzyzx989fromCan we try to make the wheel rounder?This pack was highly recommended and I thought it would be great but was very disappointed. I typically do a lot of scrambling and peak bagging and I use an REI pack for that! I wanted this one for light trail hiking and thought if I liked it I would get the 1600 for longer hikes! The first time I used the pack the stiching came a part next to the zipper where the bladder goes in to the pack, poor workmanship. When the bladder is pumped up the water sloshes around like crazy and its very annoying. When pumped up the bladder pushes on my back and makes the pack feel very awkward and starts pushing into the storage comparty. Overall I think this back is a complete waste, I'll stick with my REI traverse with an osprey 100oz bladder. This bladder has tomany parts that could potentially go wrong and cause you to lose all your water, no need to have all those hoses and pumps for a little sprayer, just tighten any standard pack with a bladder in it down to your back and it will spray too!
