Very similar to the Cambelbak Rogue
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
For gravel riding and short mountain bike rides I’ve been using a Camelbak Rogue for years. I wanted another one as a backup but the Rogue has been re-done since I first bought one and some of the reviews on the new model gave me pause. The EVOC CC 2L Plus looked very similar to my older Rogue so I thought I’d give it a try. Since I’ve so thoroughly tested the original Rogue I can’t help but compare the two. The EVOC has slightly less storage than the already minimalist Rogue so that’s a notch against it. However, I love the way the bladder on the Evoc opens for filling. It’s essentially a giant and very secure zip-lock. It’s much easier to use than the bladder in my Rogue. The EVOC bladder attaches to the pack with a small, flimsy loop of velcro that so far hasn’t been a problem but I view it as a potential weak point. The EVOC is comfortable, lightweight, and breathable. The hose and mouthpiece works great. I like this item and I do recommend it but that being said, if I ever need another one I’ll probably go back to the Rogue just for the tiny bit of extra space that it provides.
