GeigerRig/Spartan Race – Prototype Hydration Pack – Sneak Peak

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014


Pressurized hydration pack company GeigerRig, in partnership with Spartan Race, is producing a Spartan Race-themed hydration pack. All that’s been shown of the new pack so far is the prototype model.


Made from 500D Cordura nylon, the Spartan Race hydration pack features an internal post-race mesh drying bag, fully closed pressure bulb, fully enclosed and protected spray valve, and heavy-duty external daisy chain.

The pack is designed for low profile and features a short torso length. An integrated lower-back hip belt is designed or weight dispersal and load stabilization, and the internal Guardian back frame is included for safety and stability.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Spartan Race

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

The “Death Race” we recently wrote about is presented by Spartan Race who holds several events every year. In fact, their next event is tomorrow, December 12th in Malibu, California. The new Spartan Sprint events serve as a form of a bracket system to qualify for bigger, and more important races culminating in the Death Race at the end of the racing season. Each of the Spartan Sprint 3 mile (5k) race courses are strewn with imposing walls, muddy gullies, spear throws, barbed wire crawls, flaring brush fires, and grimacing gladiators bearing mercifully padded dueling sticks. These will qualify racers for the seven mid-level Super Spartan events which will be more rugged, muddier, obstacle packed and five miles (8k) longer than the Sprints.

One thing we are really jazzed about is that Spartan Race supports Homes for our Troops. Since 2004 Homes for Troops has built 100 custom homes for severely injured veterans. We aren’t talking Mcmansions here but rather the types of modifications needed to allow a home to accommodate a wounded vet. A very worthy cause indeed.
