GEIGERRIG Rig 700 Hydration Pack - 70 fl. rated4.5out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromWorth Every PennyLike this so much better than any of the other packs available. Having a pressurized source of water makes a huge difference, especially when sharing with others. Super easy to clean/refill. Can't recommend more highly.

Rated4out of5byfromPretty good but with limitationsBought this for day hikes, and so far it's been great. Despite the stated 11 liter carrying capacity, once you filled this pack with water and pump it up (pressurizing it), the usable space is much much less. The external carrying options are limited as well, you can use the compression straps to strap down a jacket or hiking sticks, but that's about it. Pros: The pressurized water bladder works as advertised, allowing you to share water easily. You don't need to pump very often, the air bladder inside the water bladder can hold pressure well. Construction of the bag is above average, stitches are solid and strong. The water bladder is much easier to clean than other brands' designs. You just disconnect the 2 tubes (air and water) and flip it inside out, its also dishwasher safe. The air channels formed by padding on the back of the pack, along with the internal plastic frame sheet makes this bag pretty cool to carry. You can buy the additional "Geigerrig In-Line Water Filter", which attaches directly to the water hose; this allows for easy water filtration on the go. On top of which the Filter is very cheap compare to other options. Unfortunately at the time of writing REI doesn't carry this part. Cons: This bag is a minimalist bag, you can't carry much other than water with it. The stated capacity is on an empty bag with an empty bladder. The water bladder bloats up so much after pressurization, you can't really swap it into another hydration bag. The air pump seems flimsy. It's holding up so far, but I got my doubts on its longevity. The water hose spigot design is odd. It looks like a regular bite valve and when you want water you just squeeze on it and water will shoot out. However it also means your hands must touch the soft rubber part, so hygienically you really shouldn't suck on that bit afterwards. Because water squirts out instead of pours out, you actually end up drinking less water by volume. Need to remember that, and drink more often with this pack to compensate. Because water squirts out, you have to actually aim it or you'll get water all over your face. This means you have to stop and drink. Drinking while biking is doable with practice. Drinking while snowboarding is... not really advisable. :) Over all the pros outweighs the cons and as long as you don't plan on carrying too much gear, this pack is a great choice for hiking.
