Did you know that the word ‘Azimuth’ refers to the horizontal angle or direction of a compass needle? No, me neither. Well it is and it’s also the name of American-made technical apparel brand Triple Aught Design’s versatile and super lightweight pack. It’s exactly the kind of backpack that you can stash away into the side of a larger piece of kit (or even a jacket) and then pull it out when you just need to head out with the bare essentials and leave your bulkier gear behind at base-camp/the hotel.
Made in the USA from premium lightweight and durable weather-resistant material the minimalist and unstructured Azimuth packs up into its own internal mesh pocket which can be rolled up as well as packed flat. Plus there’s loads of technical details and modular attachment capabilities for stuff like a hydration bladders and transport cubes for those of you who like a pack that’s fit for purpose as well as being guaranteed to make all your mates ask you where you got it from.
