The Geigerrig 1600 Hydration Engine Backpack

Geigerrig 1600 Hydration Engine Backpack
While some aspects of our lives would suffer without our phones or laptops for a week, we would still be able to survive. On the other hand, going without water for that length of time would not go over so well. Thankfully finding water that is clean enough to drink is not a common problem anymore. However, hikers, bikers, climbers, and others who like to be on the go often don’t want to back track or make a side stop for water.

You can only carry so much H2O with you, and the method in which you carry it is often specific to the activity you’re doing. The Geigerrig 1600 Hydration Engine Backpack should cater to all you adventure-seekers out there, as it will allow you to carry 100 ounces of pressurized water. The reservoir the water is kept in can be removed and washed in the top rack of your dishwasher so you don’t have to worry about developing mold on the interior if you don’t use it for a while. To keep with the times, this has a waterproof section for your gizmos and gadgets.

The material this backpack is made of is a heavy-duty 1680 ballistic nylon, a neoprene sleeve on the reservoir, polymer plastics for the clasps and buckles, and 10-coil zippers. The pressurized water will come in handy for sharing without spreading germs between people or animals, cleaning off wounds, or cleaning up your hands. This is a quality backpack with special features, so the $175 price tag shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to anyone. If the quality of your water is questionable, you can put a filter in the line, but it will cost you an additional $60. If this is out of your price range, there are plenty of options out there that are far cheaper and will have the same effect if you search for the right combination.
