Camping accessory: 3 liter Hydration backpack

Posted by Chad Grayot on

Many of our customer's over the years (especially virgin burners) ask us what type of hydration pack is the best to use. Considering during normal hiking you are gone for hours at a time or at Burning Man for a day at a time it is vital to have a good pack. What we use (keep in mind we are not affiliated with this company nor promoting it) is a Geigerrig pack. They come in many sizes for all the different needs but the reason we use them is they have large, built in, hydration packs. These packs even have pumps to spray yourself off when it is hot, contribute water to another being, or even use it to clean something. We have placed the details below. 

Excerpt from Geigerrig: "Take your Geigerrig engine and all your gear on your daily excursions in the city or on the trail. The RIG 1200 comes with a 3 liter reversible, top-rack dishwasher safe hydration engine with a lifetime warranty against leaks. Stowing and organizing gear is easy with 1200 cubic inches of capacity, an admin pocket organizer, stretch web tie downs and mesh side pockets."
