    Hydrations Systems:

    There are many different hydration systems out there. Some people love to you use the simple and good old fashioned bottle others prefer to keep them hydrated by carrying it on their backs. Either way, the most important thing is to keep hydrated at all times.

    There are a lot of different brands out there, but the system that is being reviewed below is from one of the oldest and trusted brands in the market – CamelBak!

    Camelbak Rogue
    -       Volume: 2 Liters
    -       3 Utilities pockets
    -       Able to carry Bike Tool, spare tube, bike pump, cellphone, keys.
    -       Easy twist on/ Twist off Cap for refuelling

    The Camelbak Rogue is probably one of the more popular hydration packs. It carry's 2 Liters of liquid, which is a good 2-2.5 hour riding time on avg. The pack has two zip utility pockets which are ideal for a bike tool, tube, cellphone, keys. There is also a specific spot for a bicycle pump and  a little extra room for that banana you were saving for the race. One of the greatest things of the Rogue is the flushness it has while on your back, it does not stick out and is certainly not uncomfortable. The air vents on the back also make a big difference. The bladder is also fantastic as it has a large screw off lid, but still stays attached, and with a quick anti-clockwise turn, is re-locked and you are ready to go, no more hassling with taking the whole pack out and trying to shove it back in and hope it fits. The retail price of the Rogue ranges from 799-999 at most sport and outdoor stores.
