What intrigued me about the Azimuth pack when I first saw it was its minimalist appearance. There is no molle webbing on it whatsoever and no obnoxious buckles or straps. The material is extremely lightweight yet durable enough to use for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, rappelling and just about any other outdoor adventure. The Azimuth would make a great adventure go bag. The interior of the pack is a bucket style, meaning that it is one big open cavity to stuff your gear into. You can utilize other pouches in order to compartmentalize your gear inside the pack.

There are also two size zippers access points. On one side opening the zipper will give you full access to the contents inside the main compartment, while the other zipper will give you access to a vertical pocket for smaller loose accessories or two cans of your favorite beverage.

From the Triple Aught Design website:

Azimuth (n):  the horizontal angle or direction of a compass bearing.

On any bearing, the Azimuth’s unique design, light weight, versatility, and packability make it a formidable companion to your regular kit. Designed to stow away on all your adventures, the Azimuth is built to function as a quick reaction accessory when you need to expand your carry capacity in the field.
