First Look: Triple Aught Design Azimuth Pack

I just got in the Triple Aught Design Azimuth Pack.  I initially purchased the Black/Brindle version but quickly sold it and put in my order for the all black edition along with the Admin Panel 1.

The Black/Brindle combo was interesting but I just love all black bags.  And, as you can see, it’s a gorgeous pack.  The VX-21 Sailcloth material has a striking diamond pattern and a sheen to it. Pictures really don’t do it justice.   

I’ll cover the features in more detail later in my review but let’s be clear.  One use case for the Azimuth is a packable option that can be paired with the Meridian Transport Case or other luggage for carry as a primary or secondary when you arrive at your destination.  But this isn’t a run-of-the-mill packing cube backpack.  It’s very feature rich with multiple access points, internal and external zippered pockets, helix attachment points for customization, two water bottle pockets, and advanced water-resistant materials.

The straps are unstructured and minimalist.  




The Azimuth, as with other packs in this same class, is designed for light duty. For heavier loads, look to Triple Aught Design’s Fastpack EDC and Litespeed or another option entirely.          

The Admin Panel 1 pairs well with the Azimuth.  It slides on rails so that it can be removed and accessed outside the pack without having to detach it.  It also features the same water-resistant materials including a YKK Aquaguard zippered compartment.

It mounts to the two Helix attachment points at the top of the Azimuth’s main compartment.




Stay tuned for a full review.  Coming soon!

      Robert, I’m holding for TAD to send us the transport (laptop) sleeve so they can be reviewed together. I will say, for what it is, I’m very impressed by the pack so far.

    Just received the Transport Sleeve today. It looks great!

    Looking forward to a full review on this pack. Also, is the black version really more of a two-tone one? The TAD website shows it in all black, but pics on instagram and The Perfect Pack group on facebook seem to only show a two-tone black/gray-ish one? It appears yours is as well.

  4. Used mine for a weekend trip to SF… Definitely a fun and interesting pack. Can’t wait for your full review as well!
