Shuttle Specs Requested

Sorry for the delayed response....

I've been trying to upload image files like I used tube, but am having trouble:

1) Length of the SHUTTLE: 16 inches (top to bottom)
2) Width of the SHUTTLE: 8.5 inches (side to side)
3) Girth of the SHUTTLE: Approx. 5.5 inches (front to back when full)

Hope this helps.

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.

Australian geigerrigs

Just wanted to say I ordered mine this week and had it delivered in 3 days. Awesome pricing from the Australian importer means we dont need to buy OS. Pricing is almost dollar for dollar same.

I bought the Grig 1600, filter and insulator. $150 for a 3 liter "pump action" hydration pack is excellent. Camelback by comparison are a rip off.

I genuinely feel that the G-Rigs are going to take over from camelbacks. Once people realise the ease with which they work and the pricing is the same as camelback then it will be a no brainer.

On function alone camelbacks should be half the price because they have half the features of the g-rigs. Add in the "smart"design of the g-rigs and they are superior in all ways.

Keiran at Zen Imports was awesome to deal with and has the same passion for the g-rigs as we have for our bikes.

Excellent product that not only meets expectations but exceeds them.

Photos to come

Bob speaks the truth. I had the same issue with mine until he heard about it... no more. Now mine holds pressure, no problem.

I sure like the new line... Wouldn't mind seeing one in person.

I just found out about this model of the RIG and I really like the idea of mounting it on the bike like a tank bag instead of wearing a rig on my back. Thanks for listing the outer dimensions, but I'm looking for a bit more product info.

I see this Shuttle version has 2 zip pockets, but there isn't much info on how big they are exactly. Can Bob or anyone who may have this model tell me the dry storage volume of these pockets (maybe with pics)? I assume if I cram them full of stuff it may impact how full I can fill the water bladder, but I'd be okay with that if the Shuttle could do double duty as a small tank bag to hold for example a small digicam + sunglasses + wallet + keys + tire pressure gauge + whatever else I can think of...

Geigerrig 500 over a pressure suit

Here are a few shots of a Geigerrig 500 in black over a Leatte Pressure suit and Neck brace. It fits comfortably over the suit and does not appear to interfere with the neck brace. I have the optional insulated drink tube as shown in one of the pictures.

Just in case anyone wondered if it would work with this get up.




I forgot to do up the lower clip.

I'm enjoying my Rig 1600

I'm enjoying my 1600 pack. The pressurized system is definitely the highlight for me.

I missed a phone call this morning from a number I did not recognize. Checked my voicemail later and it was Matt from Geigerrig giving me a heads up about the filter they are sending me. I had been thinking over the past couple of days about contacting them for an update since I had not heard anything. Matt got to me first which was awesome. I called him back to thank him for his attentive service. My thanks to GB and Geigerrig.

I've emailed and called Matt at Geigerrig twice with the following question. He's always been really nice, but hasn't yet been able to answer my question:

For me, the way a backpack fits on my body is really important. I have a backpack now that fits me like a dream, and am considering replacing it with the 1600. But I'd just like the security to know that if I buy it and it really doesn't fit my body type I can return it. There are no distributors near me (DC) so I can't go and try one on. Both times I've talked to Matt, he hasn't been sure whether I could return it, unused (but tried on) should it not fit, if I bought it over their website.

Just FYI to folks.

Just to follow up - Yet again never heard from them. I was mystified, so I noticed a 1600 with "best offer" on eBay and they counter-offered me for $99 shipped. I took it. Oh well, I really did want to stick with buying direct...
