EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Axis Backpack in Camo is made to blend in so nobody has to know you're wearing a diaper bag. Camo is the newest style for Petunia Pickle Bottom's Axis Backpack, appealing to on-the-go dads who want something that can take them from daddy duty to work and play. 

There's a front zippered pocket for keeping smaller necessities within easy reach. If you have the matching Grid Caddy & Pixels, sold separately, you can store that inside the zip-around insulated bottom section. There's an insulated bottle pocket on the side, and if you open up the main compartment, you'll find a changing pad and wipes case in the stretchy pocket. 

There's another pocket on the back of the backpack, and a removable sunglasses case. (You could probably use it to carry your phone or anything else small that you want easy access to.)

You can wear this as a backpack, but you can also lift it up by the top handle or attach stroller clips, sold separately, to the D-rings to attach the backpack to a stroller handlebar.

Why Is It Useful?

This is definitely a functional diaper bag, especially if you have some of the other coordinating items in Petunia Pickle Bottom's Inter-Mix System. We like that this bag includes a changing pad and wipes container for some built-in storage. The insulated bottom pocket makes it easy to bring milk and snacks while on the go, plus you still have room for all the other baby and toddler essentials. And because this is a backpack, it's a little more comfortable to lug around all that stuff than with a traditional shoulder diaper bag.

Who It’s For

The Axis Backpack is for parents looking for a convenient way to carry baby's gear on the go. The camo style will probably appeal more to dads.

What To Be Aware Of

The fabric is a leatherette fabric that you can keep clean by wiping with a mild detergent and cleaning with a soft, damp cloth.
