Camelbak Rogue 70oz Hydration Pack Review

Rating: 4.5 (out of 5)

The Camelbak Rogue is a one of a kind hydration pack ideal for those who take long, frequent trips on the road or on a trail with lots of gear. The pack was designed for biking, and it has dedicated compartments for holding your wallet, keys, spare tubes, bike pump and other biking must haves.

The CamelBak Rogue’s slim line design really lends the pack to the avid mountain rider, as it is easy to move around the saddle during those stiff climbs without being hampered or obstructed by the pack. It is also very comfortable to wear, and this alone would be enough for most riders who have ever had to endure sweaty, bulky backpacks.

Key features of the Camelbak Rogue

Camelback RogueReservoir capacity

The Camelbak Rogue is a bike ready hydration pack that comes with Camelbak’s famous Antidote 2 liter (70 ounce) reservoir. The reservoir enjoys Camelbak’s exclusive Hydro Guard technology, which inhibits harmful bacteria thereby keeping the water fresh for long and prolonging the overall life of the hydration reservoir.

The reservoir is very easy to fill when on the road as it is equipped with a quick access flap that makes it easy for you to access the opening of the reservoir when looking to fill it up. It is easy to take a sip from the reservoir thanks to the Quick Link hydration bladder and big bite valve that only opens when pressure is applied by the teeth, which reduces spills.

Moreover, the Camelback Rogue also has a cargo compartment with a capacity of 200 cu in, which is remarkable considering how small the hydration pack looks. The pack offers 2 external pockets for carrying your biking gear and personal items if needed. It may not be able to accommodate too much gear, but it sure offers enough capacity to take care of your essentials.

Design and comfort featuresCamelback Rogue review

The Camelback Rogue offers a variety of features that include a multi-tool pocket, an air channel back panel and an air mess harness. The hydration pack’s shoulder straps are wide, well-padded and designed to achieve a tight fit on your body, so that you will rarely feel the weight. What’s more, there are twin compression straps to shrink down the pack when empty or partially full, which holds the contents in one place and prevents them from sloshing about.

Camelback used the Air Director back panel with the Air Mesh shoulder harness that enhances ventilation and reduces sweating. The antidote reservoir is also uniquely designed to fit into and complement the camelback rogue hydration pack’s slim line design thanks to air-light fill port that reduces weight.
