GeigerRig recommendation

GeigerRig makes awesome hydration systems and I found out when the bite valve on my Nathan running vest started leaking. I replace with the 2 liter GeigerRig hydration system and it fit great and worked even better. The pressure system started leaking, but GeigerRig warrantied it not problem and had me a new system mailed out to me. I highly recommend their products and if you are looking to either upgrade or replace what is in your current pack check them out!
