Are you ready for a pack that can handle any trek or outdoor activity?
My goal for a pack was to have a hydration pack along with plenty of space for my things (and my kids things which I end up carrying). To be comfortable and, if possible, have a water filter option if needed. That’s how I ended up in the Aquamira shop. Which has joined forces with one of the best, sturdiest companies around – Geigerrig.
Let’s just say this is a marriage made in heaven and you literally get two awesome products for one.
Geigerrig Hydration Packs
Let’s break it down. The backpack has all the possible compartments you can imagine. Comfortable straps that are adjustable for chest and waist.
However the best part by far is the bladder pack.
It’s pressurized so that you can spray with it. Below are videos that really give you a breakdown of what this pack can do.
One massive issue I have with hydration packs is:
How to clean the pack? We have had other hydration bladders and I won’t lie to you, cleaning them is the biggest headache I’ve had. Most of them don’t turn inside out, they get rotten inside due to the water staying there. Basically, you need to be buying a new one constantly.
