Geigerrig Pressurized Hydration Packs Wins Again – Outdoor Trade Show – Warwickshire September 27, 2011
The winners of the hotly anticipated 2011 Novel Awards have been announced at the Outdoor Trade Show In Europe, and the pressurized GEIGERRIG 2 Liter Hydration Engine (Hydration Pack), with its in-line filtration capability, was not only selected as the winner of the accessory category, but also the coveted Product of the Year Award.
Curt Geiger, President of GEIGERRIG Hydration Packs said, “Winning these awards is very exciting to us. This year, at the 2011 Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City, Utah, GEIGERRIG recieved the innovation award for The Best New Product in the hard goods category. Also, we’ve received rave reviews by experts such as Dan Larson of Backpacker.com who declared, ‘Bottom Line: The best hydration system I’ve found…’ I always hoped that upon launching in Europe, our product would receive the same enthusiasm and qualified acceptance. We are grateful for this recognition and very appreciative of our valued distributor in the UK, Whitby and Company, and our fabricator, Hydrapak, for the great efforts and strides they have both made in just a few short months. Whitby and Company received their samples only weeks before the OTS show. I can’t wait for European consumers to get their hands on a GEIGERRIG hydration system that sprays, filters, and flips inside out for cleaning in the top shelf of their dishwashers.”
