Never suck again

Water. American Express's catchphrase may have been "Don't leave home without it," but water is even more important than a credit card for your survival. After all, not all places take credit cards. For instance, the Appalachian Trail accepts neither Visa, MasterCard, nor American Express. However, it will accept your hiking boots.

Bike, hike, climb, spelunk, and camp prepared with the Geigerrig 1600 Hydration Engine Backpack. "Hydration Engine?" Yep. So check this out. The Geigerrig's secret is pressurization. Using a bulb like the one on a blood-pressure cuff, you inflate the bladder to create pressure. Enough pressure that the water literally sprays out when you're ready for it. No more using up your precious oxygen trying to suck water while climbing a steep hill. With a pinch or a bite on the Geigerrig's tube, you get a steady spray of water every time.

There are times when a trickle just isn't going to cut it, and pressurized water can really make a difference. For instance, when you have a wound that needs cleaning. When you're doing science on the trail and accidentally get something in your eye (sand? dust? sunblock?). It's great for sharing water, too, with others, two-legged and four, without having to share a mouthpiece.

But built around the hydration engine is a backpack that will hold enough for a 1-2 day trip. Throw in your food, first aid kit, electronics, and a change of clothes. The backpack has an integrated slider chest strap, a removable hip belt, and ergonomic shoulder straps designed for industrial load disbursement. Plus, the back features pads and "air drive" ventilation to keep you dry.

And when you're back home? The reservoir turns inside out and can be stuck in the top rack of your dishwasher. No more letting your hydration system conduct its own science experiment without your knowledge in the offseason.
