Rated5out of5bySnoProfromGreat for Skiing!I teach skiing, and often am not able to get into the lodge between classes for water. I found myself become dehydrated--lips chapped, parched mouth, headache. I had tried other hydration systems, but the cold from the water transferred to my back making me cold and the mouthpiece froze. I even tried insulating my existing hydration product, and still found it useless on the slopes.
With the Geigerrig, it is already insulated, and has a hard plastic board between the water bladder and my jacket. I don't get cold wearing it. It is comfortable, and has a chest clip, a small whistle, wide straps, and a waist clip. It hangs easily on a hook when I'm not using it. The mouthpiece didn't freeze as long as I was taking a small drink each time on the lift, and that's without the optional "garage" -- just straight out of the package. On my old hydration system, the tube and mouthpiece would freeze solid, making it totally useless, and cleaning it was a pain.
The Geirrig is easy to use, and very well designed. It definitely gets a "thumbs up" from me, and now my chap lips are gone too!
