UNIQUE PAXIS BACKPACK, WHY I MADE THE SWITCH

PAXIS BACKPACK I just purchased a Paxis backpack for my trip to Peru with my last stop being Machu Picchu.  I’ve never been a fan of backpacks for my travel because it’s difficult to grab things from it quickly.  My travel carry bag has always been a messenger type bag.  Then I saw an advertisement for [...]
