    Anyone know if the 2L engine will work with an Ortlieb COR 13?
    (I like my waterproof backpack, but the Camelback hydration pack is a hassle to get in/out.)

    I have a feeling no one has tried this combo, but figured I'd give it a shot.

    I love fishing as well as motorcycling, and recently spend some time in TX doing both. Rode out to a ranch that a friend had a fishing lease on, ran about five miles on dirt roads, put on the water shoes and waded a bunch of tanks and a lake catching bass & bluegill on poppers/Clousers with a flyrod. Used the Geigerrig 700 for snackbars, water and fishing gear. Afterwards I had to rinse the mud off my feet to get back into boots. After a day on the water fishing I still had plenty of water on tap to rinse my feet, and the pressure-powered flow made the job really easy without using much water! Had enough to make it home.

    Bob, any chance you guys might offer the Bando in the citrus color at some point?

    7 days to get the stuff!! Really nice product and I can't wait to use it!!

    I have two comments...

    I got the insulated tube and it took me a few minutes to figure out how to make it work (pull, not twist), instructions would be helpful.
    The other item would be having an option to upgrade to the 3L bag (if it fits).

    Thanks.

    Hey there ADV Riders,

    Thanks for the kind comments again and for the communication that we get at the office via e-mail: bob@hubcityoutdoor.com.

    A note:

    The RIG 700, RIG 500 and RIG come with 2L Hydration Engines. However, they will also accomodate the 3L Hydration Engine as well. I just wanted to make sure that everyone knew that.

    Always feel free to contact us directly anytime.

    BTW.... My e-mail is bob@hubcityoutdoor.com, but you can also contact curt@hubcityoutdoor.com and matt@hubcityoudoor.com. We will all do our best to respond and take care of you.

    Love the crew here at ADV Rider. Looking forward to more communication with you all.

    Best Regards,
    Bob Geiger

    Does anyone have experience in putting a hydro pack inside a tank bag laying down. will it work if no air in the liquid side, should it be stored in a protective case. I will not only be drinking but spraying down shirt in the mid summer heat

    VIDEO Review - This guy is a runner and is in training for a 50 Kilometer record. As soon as he got his GEIGERRIG, he filled it with his own Unrine, took it on a 3 hour run, and provided his report. (We didn't asked him to do that. It is just how his crazy mind works apparently.) So, some of you have asked us if we have found a way that you can drink your beer twice....This video review may provide the answer: :1drink

    Picked up Giegerrig Rig 1600 recently via Amazon and was going to order a Filter. I noticed in the Filter Ready Tube, online video*, it shows the filter coming with a Quick Connect Male and Female connectors and how to make your own filter ready drink tube. Do those attachements still come with a filter, or must you now buy the filter ready tube in addition to the filter?

    FWIW - First trip out with the pack worked great, until I got low on water - hot day, long ride. Hence the interest in the filter. Other than that pack is great. Loved how I could clean off my Helmet Shield, and spray water down my back to cool off...did I mention it was hot?

    Thinking about picking up the 1600. Any of you guys run a giant loop Coyote and use one of these? I just wondered if the bags will be hitting each other.

    Scott, the filter kit is separate from the filter. Had you got in on the deal here you might have gotten one free. Bob is a stand up guy... give him a call and tell him you are an inmate... maybe he can work something out for you.

    I am still enjoying my 1200 :nod

    My 1600 turned up today .....very good Quality as i expected ....they shoot some water if ya pump em up hard

    the only gripe i have is the drink tube is to short ....and i would think you need to clip it in its holder otherwise it pokes out a bit with the pressure in the tube

    or is it just coz its new and a lil stiff

    otherwise ... i hope to get many good yrs out of this

    I ordered the 700 ballistic and a 3L bag. I really wish they sold this combo from the start. I almost did the 1600 but its to big. The only thing I like to carry on my back is water.

    I'm in the same boat. Can you fit the 3L bag in the Bando?

    Good luck getting an answer to that question.....I asked whether or not they'd consider doing a Bando in hi-vis last month (and two posts from Bob) ago and never got an answer. Seems like he just drops in, puts a post up and leaves without reading the rest of the activity on the thread.

    I emailed Bob and he said that the Bando will fit the 3L reservoir but they are not planning to make it in anything other than what's currently offered.

    Does anyone here have the Bando? How does it fit with a jacket and armor? I like that style better than the backpack. REI doesn't carry it, so I can't try it on.

    Well i put the rig 1600 to the test ....it had a small fail
    the plastic clip the holds the shoulder strap on broke ...the 1 that connects the thinner strap to the padded shoulder strap

    tho after the crash the pump stream was a savior ..i split my rad and was able to clean it b4 i put my quick steal on

    allso used it to spray water over my shoulder at my ride buddys when it was cold in the morning ..sprays nice at a 100kms hr :evil

    is there a fix i can do for my pack ..i need a new buckle but the loop where the buckle is stitched up :cry

    here is the vid of the crash so u can see the hit i took

    Holy shit that was a hard hit. The good news is that there is an easy fix. You can get a field replaceable ladderloc.
    You can get them at this website in small quantities. There is no sewing necessary. Just take a pair of "side dikes", wire cutters, and cut the center bar of the existing ladderloc and remove it from the sewn in webbing portion to the pad. Then insert the split portion of the new ladderloc into the webbing. Then remove the shoulder cinch strap through the tensioning bar of the old ladderloc and reinsert it into the new one in the same configuration. I would do both sides just to have them look the same.

    The other option would be to get two new 1" ladderlocs and take it to a local contract sewer. They can easily remove the stitching, replace and re-sew it in about 20 minutes. Make sure that they use a minimum of 69bonded thread. If they use standard thread it will break.
    Good luck.
