Origins & Philosophy

Azo Equipment started as an idea for better carrying equipment in 2005. The inspiration for the brand came during an expedition to Ethiopia. 'Azo' is the Ethiopian word for Crocodile. Taken from the Crocodiles of the Bashilo River, our values of durability and mystery are combined with a dedication to travel.

We aim to design bags and other travel related products that are of the highest quality, offer a new style in carry and are long lasting. We use only the strongest materials and methods for assembling and testing our backpacks. Bridging the gap between technical performance equipment and style, our products can be used all over the world and are made to last a lifetime.
