A preview of the Camelbak Rogue hydration pack, which has brought back some fond memories.

 

I used to ride my mtb a lot back in the 90s and always used a backpack. Rides were all day long affairs and rear pockets couldn’t cope with the sheer amount of ‘stuff’ that was deemed necessary. As to how much was actually useful was up for debate. The bigger the bag, the more you would shoe-horn in, yet most of it would never be used. The Camelbak Rogue gets around this by being minimalist; you can try and overfill it, but even if you do, you still won’t be carrying very much.

The Camelbak Rogue has at its heart a 2L Antidote® reservoir that can be refilled via the quick-release flap on the front of the pack. This makes life a lot easier when re-filling; no more drenching your kit topping up water supplies. The cap only needs a quarter turn to open or close and is plenty big enough for adding energy powder or for cleaning.

 

With only two small pockets and a stretchy ‘cargo area’ that could take a water-proof, you’ll be hard pushed to overfill the Camelbak Rogue. The straps are mesh and the whole pack is small and light, hopefully keeping your sweaty back patch as small as possible.

Although I rarely use a back pack now, the days of regular all-day rides have long gone, I do get the occasional ‘day-pass’ and when I do I will gladly take the Rogue with me, it should be perfect for something like the CX Century that I rode last year. Once I’ve given it a good try out I’ll let you know how I got on.
