The pack is very sturdy and took all my survival gear and clothing for the weekend. Its volume and compression are easily regulated by multiple straps on the side and on the back of it. I strapped clothing layers that I wanted readily accessible within the elastic straps on the back (one thing that the 1200 has but the other Rigs don't have I believe). The cargo volume is huge! This pack can carry a lot more stuff than it seems!
The shoulder straps are easy on the shoulders/traps and don't dig in hard. They are easily adjusted. So are the chest and hip straps. I added some carabiners on the back of the pack to carry extra stuff like my Vibrams and my Glo Toob lithium as a night time beacon.
The hydration engine is simply awesome and really easy to use. First, the bladder is 3L. I usually fill my Camelbak with 2/3 water and 1/3 ice so I did the same here. No problem. It fits nicely into the bladder compartment and there is even an elastic compartment to put it in in case you want to reduce bladder-swinging. The clip-on valves are easy and intuitive to use. The water valve may leak a few drops during plugging operations but that is normal. Once full and in place the bladder just needs a few pumps from the hand-pump and voila: pressurized water flow! So easy to drink I drank way too much. Really useful too when you need to wash the blood of splattered mosquitoes off your arms! The bladder is also really easy to wash: just reach for the bottom and pull it inside out. It is sturdy, tough, and won't rip. Wash it with running water and mild soap, rinse, then dry it with paper towels while you're at it. Done. No need to hang dry.
During the 10 mile hike I decided to run for a quick mile with a full pack to see how it would handle. For a 1200 cu in, the pack balanced nicely and I did not feel any discomfort or anything that made me want to stop. I am confident that I could run longer distances with it, with less load in the pack.
Geigerrig is putting out quality products and I am very impressed with this 1200 pack. I am looking forward to any new lines of products they will release.
On top of all of this I was a little concerned about putting anything other than water in the pack since it has a valve and pumps and such. On this note I visited the website for Geigerrig and looked for a customer support email. I found the page but was a little off put by the fact the emails listed were the CEO, COO and production manager. I figured "oh this isnt going to work" but emailed the CEO on a Saturday evening anyway. Sunday morning I see an email from the CEO answering my question and letting me know "go ahead and put sports drinks in, just wash it well afterwards"... Seriously, the CEO emailed me on a Sunday morning, with a good answer and a thank you for purchasing their product.
I have written quite a few reviews on amazon when I am impressed by a product, customer service or not satisfied. I am so pleasantly surprised by every aspact of this product and company I cant say enough. Buy this or one of their other packs you will be very pleased.
The pressurization tube and drink tube are left as exposed as possible. In my eyes this pack should have been prefitted with the tube garage and they should have charged more to compensate
Cons: If you put the bladder in wrong the drink tube will disconnect. It takes a couple times of this happening to learn how to avoid it, but when you learn it doesn't happen again. Also, only a very small amount of water leaks when disconnected, and there is a drain hole at the bottom of the pack to accommodate.
Drink tube is not long enough for use with the clip in the factory position, and due to the sternum strap, which is also not in the right position, you have to make the choice between unclipping the drink tube and using the sternum strap. There are solutions to this as well, but it is something that should have been fleshed out by the manufacturer.
The pressurization tube is too easy to catch when putting on the pack and separating it from the inflation ball means that you lose all your pressure, fast. The upside is that you can easily thread it through the strap and solve this. Just should have been done already.
Other thoughts: Buy the tube garage at the same time that you buy the pack. It is worth it. It eliminates the clip/sternum strap issue, makes the backpack more useable in civilized areas by hiding the drink tube, and insulates/protects everything past your pack.
Conclusion: A great pack after some customization. Some choices are questionable, mostly in implementation, but the material is there. If I were rating the designer of the pack I might have given 3-4 stars rather than 5, but all things said and done this pack has some serious potential. Spend a little time getting to know it before heading out with it and you won't be disappointed.
