Though I ordered my pack late in the season, I took it out for a test run on a short 6-mile hike this weekend and I couldn't be happier! The lumbar support was so comfortable, it barely felt like I was carrying anything at all. I usually start to slouch when I've been hiking a while and get tired, but this pack kept me upright the whole time! The separate compartments were perfect for keeping my water, snacks, and extra gear organized and easy to access. I also LOVE the Peruvian textile fabric and design. It's absolutely beautiful and unique. I can't say enough good things about this pack! So happy I found this! Thank you!
Great little bag. Folds up very small and perfect for outer layers as it warms up in case your pack is already full.
Was looking for something a little different than my molle packs for daily abuse and figured I would give it a shot. It’s a real hiking backpack. The support is awesome. Very breathable, doesn’t leave my back all sweaty. It arrived super quick and the splashes of Peruvian colors are eye catching. I ordered the side kick bag as well. Makes into a nice carry backpack for outer layers or extra clothes without taking up much room. (Tennis ball size side kick pack) First week using it, love it so far.
The backpack arrived on time and in perfect condition. I was surprised by how lightweight the backpack is and how many compartments and zippers there are to hold my stuff. I love the Andean accents! You can tell it's very well made and durable.
Comfortable backpack with a lot of pockets, a really cool Andean design on the back and look forward to taking it on many trips!
Love the look, weight, pockets, hip straps, size. I was looking for a replacement commuter pack with hip straps that could also be used for a heavy daypack as well. It’s great.
Daypacks that merge Modern Technology with the Ancient Andean culture.
No need to bring the big backpack for a one-day adventure. The Wanderer can handle it: This is a daypack with a ventilated back panel, a hydration sleeve ready for your water reservoir and plenty of convenient pockets. And it feels like you are just wearing a jacket!
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
I am committed to making sure our packs not only bring Andean culture to you, but that they also give back to the Andean community.
That is why I am donating part of the profits to a Peruvian non profit organization called Corbidi. They focus on protecting the biodiversity on the Andes and the Amazon Rainforest.
The donated funds go specifically to the Natural science education, research and preservation efforts in Peru.
Andean Blue is a one-man operation. Or better said: A one-Peruvian-man operation. I was born and raised in Lima, and currently live in Los Angeles. I want to raise awareness of the rich Andean Culture I grew up in while supporting other Peruvians who protect the biodiversity of the Andes and the Amazon by donating 3% of profits to a Peruvian nonprofit.
The textiles are sourced from Peru and my hope is to share the legacy and beauty with others while inspiring outdoor adventures that make us one with nature.
As the company grows, I’m always thinking of ways to make the product more sustainable and environmentally-friendly.

The textiles are all Andean sourced. This is an important part of my mission as I seek to bring the Andean culture to daring adventurers and bold travelers like yourself. The idea was born when talking to some friends in May 2020, they complained that they couldn’t go to Peru because of Covid19. My first thought was: “What if I bring Peru to you?” I contacted a couple of friends in Peru and got things moving. Six months later I was taking my red Wanderer for a hike.
Textiles have long been a part of Andean culture. Like our pottery, textiles have been found in ancient tombs, some thousands of years old. The textiles we use are not quite this old, but they carry with them the rich Andean history in their intricate designs. Today, many people still handcraft these textiles following carefully kept family techniques and traditions. Like in many other places around the globe, the patterns and colors are used to identify the wearer’s place of origin, cultural background and even some times to know if they are looking for a date.
If you have been to Peru or any other Andean country, you surely know what I am talking about. The colors and designs of our textiles have found their way into modern fashion and they are very present all over the streets and homes. It is such a big part of our culture and history, we couldn’t imagine the world without them.
Before you can share your adventures, people will already know you are bold. Our backpacks speak of history and culture. And you will carry both on your back. Blaze your own path without any apologies.
