The Peregrine Azor 20 is an ultralight roll top dry-pack for those trips within trips. With fully seam-sealed nylon 6,6 CORDURA® fabric, this pack excels in rugged, wet climates. The shoulder harness is lightly padded with durable air mesh and features a built-in carry handle. Two generous stretch-mesh side pockets easily accommodate 32oz Nalgene bottles. A dual-use cordage system allows for quick storage of outer layers and instant pack compression if your pack contents are low volume. When space is scarce, pack it down to the size of a baseball in its included stuff sack.

Scenario 1: You're paddling with Dig Paddlesports on one of our Costa Rica Excursions. Your luggage is shuttled to our evening destination and your Azor Dry Backpack is your traveling companion. All the way to the cacao plantation, to the macaw preserve, the sloth rehabilitation facility, and the sea caves your Azor keeps the GoPro, hydration, snacks, mini first aid kit, sunblock, and the portable power pack tidy, dry, and at the ready.
Scenario 2: The Paddle to Ancient Petroglyphs Tour is too much to resist. You and three friends book your spots. One mile into the paddle, you reach for your water bottle, conveniently accessible on the outside pocket of your Azor. After a few photos of Great Blue Herons and Franklin's Gulls, we beach the kayaks and hike to the glyphs, with views of three volcanoes in the near distance. Ancient lava flows frame the background while a collared lizard skirts around the trailside sandstone boulders. After hiking across the warm rock, you realize you are thirsty again. No problem. Have Azor, will travel - WITH ELECTROLYTES! Now, you note the need for some energy. The bag of organic mango slices says that it's Kosher, but you're just glad it's in your Azor Dry Backpack. Time to put that mango in your mouth and the Azor on your back, because we have a lot to see today.
Scenario 3: You need a light, compressible, shape-conforming bag for that 2-hour flight. The Azor fits the measurement parameters of the airlines' "personal item" description. Check-in is quick, and it makes the flight crew smile to see you so cheerful on their plane.
We've used the Azor, ourselves, at Dig Paddlesports. It's super-light, incredibly functional for day tours and traveling light. It helps that it is made well and comes in at a great price. - Bill E., Owner, Dig Paddlesports
