Geigerrig Names Finalist at ISPO New Brands Competition
GEIGERRIG Hydration Packs, “The best hydration system I’ve found,” (Dan Larson, Writer and Reviewer, Backpacker.com), and “the new leader and innovator in the hydration pack market,” (Brian Powers, Examiner.com), has been selected yet again for top industry honors, this time as finalist for the Summer Hard Goods Category for the 2012 ISPO Brandnew Award in Munich, Germany – The largest start-up competition in the sporting goods industry.
Previously this year, these spraying, filtering, easy-to-clean, GEIGERRIG hydration packs were also selected by 3M corporation for the In-New-Vation Award as The Best New Hard Goods Product at the 2011 Winter Outdoor Retailer Show. Also in 2011, GEIGERRIG was selected as Product of the Year at the Outdoor Trade Show in Great Britain, as well as Accessory of the Year. Additionally, GEIGERRIG received Gear of the Year from Camping Life Magazine and other outdoor industry publications.
GEIGERRIG hydration packs provide outdoor enthusiasts with a hydration system that can easily be pressurized to provide a powerful, reliable spray. This allows the water carried in the hydration pack to be easily accessed to spray off body and gear, as well as for sharing without having to suck on a dirty bite-valve. The spray action also provides for easy drinking during aerobic activity when a high breathing rate and heart rate make sucking water through a drink tube difficult. The pressurized GEIGERRIG hydration system also allows for on-the-go, plug-and-play, water filtration so that the hydration system can be easily refilled in a river, stream, lake, or pond. And finally, due to GEIGERRIG’s partnership with Hydrapak, the GEIGERRIG hydration system can be easily turned inside out and placed in the top shelf of the dishwasher for thorough cleaning and drying.
