I purchased this pack for mountain biking. The pressurized bladder seemed like a great idea, until I found my right leg was soaking wet from the mouthpiece dripping. It does have an on/off switch, but you can't use it without stopping your ride. The inflated bladder takes up more room and hinders the fit against my back. This pack seems to bounce and slosh more than the osprey and camelbak. I guess I will use it for day hikes. There are better designed packs for mountain biking.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I do a lot of snowboarding and some of the best stuff you can find involves a bit of a hike. If you've ever hiked in the snow, you know it's quite a work out, and when you finally reach your destination at the top of that mountain, the last thing you want to do is try and suck water out of a tube. With the giegerrig,, the thing freakin sprays! It's unbelievable! I can't believe it's taken this long for something like this to come out. Touche on this great product.
