I got a Rig 500 for Christmas, which I am really excited about. I can't wait to get my bike on the road this summer and do some trips with my new hydration system. Thanks for the ADV support and double thanks for such an awesome product! I wish I had this pack 2 years ago haha

Hey ADV Rider Crew,

First off... thank you for all of the communication and sharing about your experiences with GEIGERRIG packs. For the past year it has been great to see the communication here, but even better to run into so many of you at trade shows, events, and even at restaurants and in elevators at hotels. It's amazing how many of you there are out there. An amazing population of inmates out there.

I wanted to take a moment to let you know that your advice and feedback -- that we continue to take action on -- has resulted in GEIGERRIG again receiving Best In Show at the 2012 Winter Outdoor Retailer show as well as finalist in Munich Germany for the Hottest New Brands award at the ISPO show. Your feedback and communication has been great.

Feel free to keep communicating with the blog masters here about promotion available to registered inmates. It is our pleasure to continue this offer to such a great group of folks who take time to communicate with us and to provide meaningful and constructive feedback. THANKS AGAIN!

Bob Geiger, GEIGERRIG Hydration Packs

Thanks to alaskaleather.com I've been able to try out the 500 Rig, 1200 Rig, and the 1600 Rig. The 1200 has turned out to be the one that suits me best for riding and traveling. The 1600 turned out to be the ticket for my wife for mountain biking, skiing and traveling. All three styles are extremely well designed and bomb proof. The only question that I have is... on the 1600 Rig, how is the inflater bulb supposed to fit into the waist strap? It looks like a fair amount of engineering went into the little stretchy pocket that is accessed from inside the zippered pocket but the internal slit is centered so the bulb will not fit in there. I assume that there's something that I'm missing but it has me stumped.

Thanks for the great product,
Tracy

Geigerrig on TheClymb

I saw Geigerrig had items for sale at TheClymb.com today (deal of the day kind of site for outdoor gear). Unfortunately by the time I got the email all the items were already sold out . Must be lots of people in the know about how good the stuff is. Maybe there'll be a next time and I'll see it sooner.

I think "The Clymb" is a big scam!! I saw the email hit my inbox, and went right to their site. Geigerrig and the good Sigg bottles were *already* sold out. I think they show great products like the two of these, and then say they are *sold out* to keep you coming back to their site for the BS cheap stuff that they sell. They make you *think* you missed out on something...when it was never really there to begin with!

IMHO, of course.

Another ordered

I had some questions that this thread had not already covered so I emailed Bob. He was very quick to respond and very helpful. As a result I ordered a Rig 500 and a 3L Hydration engine. Now if they only had High-Vis, KTM Orange it would have been perfect.

Bob was very accommodating with my specific requests and gave me a deal on shipping. Personalized customer service in this "press 1 for that and press 2 for this" world are rare these days and I applaud Geigerrig and Bob for this!

I am looking forward to personally reviewing this rig from Moab in the spring.

New order - Rig 1600

Thanks for offering the promo. This system replaces an old Platypus ziplock style bladder that has leaked for a long time. Looking forward to the upgrade.

Thumb I week

I have my new Rig in hand, one week after getting a call back from Bob! Everthing looks great. Obviously I have not had a chance to use it yet, but every part looks and feels like top shelf material. Big thumbs up!

Bob also called me back to make sure that I was happy with the order. Where else would you get customer service and support like that!

GEIGERRIG Shipping Overseas

Hey there ADV Riders...

Sorry for the lack of reply to the inquiries regarding shipping orders overseas....

100% of the on-line orders taken at the GEIGERRIG website are fulfilled by retailers who carry GEIGERRIG products. We do not undermine our retail dealers by fulfilling orders directly. Accordingly, if you place an order on our website, you will most often find (almost always), that there is a retailer somewhere who will pick up the order and fulfill it.

In the very few cases that the order cannot be fulfilled, you will be notified by our order management system.... In which case, I would appreciate it if you could e-mail me directly at bob@hubcityoutdoor.com.

In such cases, I'll make one more effort from my end to try to override the situation and find a way to get your order fulfilled.

I have seen orders come in from places all over the world, and I've seen them fulfilled by our retail dealer base.

But again...in the end, you won't be left hanging or damaged by placing an order with us. You guys here have a direct line to my desk: bob@hubcityoutdoor.com

I hope that this helps.

Again....thanks for the support here at ADV Rider!

Best Regards,

Bob Geiger

Just wanted to poke in for a little update on my packs.

I have now used several of the sizes including the 500,1200, bando model. Up until recently the 1200 has been my go to pack for riding the bikes and wearing it over my gear (aerostich road crafter). This week I also received a bando model and I have to say that this is going to be my go to model. For me the fit over my gear is much better with only having to deal with one strap.

Also the new pack came with a different bite valve that worked MUCH better than the original. In the past the bite valve would leak some while on the back from the movement of wind/turbulence while moving. The bando also has a magnet on the drink tube to return it to position. I think the bando is probably the most versatile piece of gear I've ever had. The other packs will be used by my kids and myself when camping/hiking but for riding the bando takes the cake.
