Product Description
When you’re on the move and in need of clean hydration, you don’t have the extra time or energy to pull a bottle out of your bag and pump a water filter. Instead of making do with a reservoir that’s little more than a plastic bag attached to a straw, go with a fully pressurized model that takes the work out of drinking Read More

I have the 3L one and it's the best thing I've bought in ages, far superior to any other hydration system I've used. That being said this isn't that cheap I got mines in Costco for less. This won't even appeal to many internationals either as they sell them overseas and you can find then reading the EU for same price or less.
The customer service at geigerrig is pretty good, I lost the bulb on an exercise as once you dismantle it to clean system specially looser if you don't use the cuff(came included on mine) and they replaced it for me and I was based back in the UK at the time and I bought it in Seattle on my way up to whistler.

You need to wash this thing thoroughly. It has very unpleasant chemical taste right after purchase. In fact, I am very hesitant to use it because of this.

Ah my apologies I did not realize it included 2 filters. But I mean technically its still cheaper on amazon at 82.97 w/ prime and you won't have to wait a month to get it. Not trying to complain, been a loyal customer here and letting everyone know of the alternative route.

Got a question. When using it as a pressurized reservoir, does the bulb need to be always attached? Or can you pump it up and take the bulb off without losing pressure?

You can take off the bulb without losing pressure. That being said, it's probably better you keep it on so that when you use the water, you can keep the pressure up for a steady stream of water without bite/sucking on the mouth piece.

I have one of their backpacks--the pack is only ordinary but the technology on the bladder is amazing--I put it into a better pack, actually! The big plus is that the water shoots out of the thing so you can water your dog and clean your wounds (I'm kind of accident-prone out there!) rather than suck on some disgusting bite valve like a Camelbak. You will become very popular on hiking trails offering a stream of water to other people's dogs! Plus, cleaning a Camelbak was a nightmare and you can just pop this into the dishwasher.

Get a Sawyer Mini filter for 20 or less and plug it inline to your hydration tube. Up to 100,000 gallons, much more versatile, and smaller filtration micron level. Better than a lifestraw or this.

I am interested in this because i am doing an obstacle race. My worry is since it is pressurized should i be worried of landing on it or it getting punctured by barb wire since it will be sticking out of my back a bit? Anyone used one of these before at an obstacle race?

They're extremely tough. They have a video online where they blow up the backpack with an explosive and the bladder is still fine. The only thing is that barbed wire would probably puncture it if you dragged it into it (though I'm not sure what kind of race you're doing where you'd be forced to go through it).
If you're going to risk puncturing it, I'd go for a cheap alternative. The reason this is so expensive is that it has an inline filter so you can drink from questionable sources safely (it's more of a survival tool than a standard hydration bladder).
I got this pack when amazon had the backpack+system on sale and I can say the build quality is top notch. The pack is extremely high quality with modular parts, as is the bladder itself (you can separate each part or fill extra packs with water and swap out as needed). Definitely a step up from a competitors such as Camelbak. That being said, the bladder has a lifetime guarantee though I'm not sure if they cover intentional crossing of barbed wire...
tl;dr: You probably don't need this unless you're thru-hiking or drinking from a questionable soure. Get a cheap hydropack for the event.

Lol the 2 videos Andy posted are very drastic but the point comes across clearly! Thanks dtfer for the explanation. I am doing the spartan race and one of the obstacles is to crawl under barb wire.

This is WAY overpriced... On amazon this combination is:
Hydrapack: $36.99 Filter: $22.99 Total: $59.98 & prime eligible
The only thing cheaper here is the optional insulating tube by $3. Do yourself a favor and buy this on amazon like I did.

You need to add another filter if you want the same as this drop, which makes it $82.97, if you want to compare apples to apples.

Life straws filter 264 gallons and cost 19.99. Replacement filters for these filter 50 gallons and cost $30+ shipping. They offer an additional filter that covers viruses... Which is nice.

That is nice, but then you're doing this: http://www.evernote.com/shard/s75/sh/f49e542b-1df8-40fd-9292-721b2fad82fa/a802075dd2b386143bdc6fcd1e745ad5

And you have to be near a water source too. Hike Anzac Borrego once and you'll never go without a hydration pack again.
