Bought in 2004 and cap's gasket just went (2007). Like another reviewer, the cap is often hard to get off. It's a wrist breaker. And it's even worse if sports powder has been mixed in (stickier) and the cap isn't opened right away when done. Sometimes I have to use pliers to get it off. Otherwise, it does its job ok, if you don't mind having to readjust the straps all the time and the hose slipping down (more exposed), no matter how well one tucks away the extra.
It's strange how the design of these kinds of packs is backwards for (at least) men. Best weight distribution should keep the pack closer to the shoulders, but as the contents are used the weight continuously shifts down into the lower back.

I Love my Rogue! It's perfect for a short day hike, or mountain biking! Holds all that I need, and non of the paranoid stuff I don't. My girlfriend is even super jealous of it!
I'll admit that the cap is a bit tricky to get off...however it builds character! I've owned a couple different types of Camelbaks, and this one has been my favorite! Kudos Camelbak!

Like the storage space, like the water capacity, the weight is good, it's pretty comfortable...
I cannot believe how hard the screw cap is to remove. It is so hard that I have been reading reviews on the 'net for the past 10 minutes trying to see if anyone else has this problem. I literally have to reef on that thing as hard as I can 9-10 times to get it to start moving. For the life of me I can't understand why that is.
I think I'm going to take it back to The Bike Store, if I can.

I bought this pack at the begining of the summer for mountain biking. I had a larger pack that weighed more and didn't sit right for biking so I went with this. It has plenty of storage for my bike too, a cell phone, pump, and a few energy bars. My back stays cool due to the ventelation. So far it has held up really well. The one downside is that it tends to shift when I'm in real rough terrain.
