Petunia Pickle Bottom Satellite Sling | Unisex
Dad will especially appreciate Petunia Pickle Bottom’s handsome interpretation of the diaper bag — and he has options. The brand’s “manly” Scout collection has a professional-looking Rubicon Rucksack ($271), a sophisticated Journey Pack ($155), a rugged Tactical Tote ($150), and a practical Nomad Knapsack ($160) — but we’re especially impressed with the minimalist Satellite Sling.
The sling can fit a surprising amount of diapers, clothes, and toys — and it even comes with an expandable bottle pocket, a water-resistant changing pad, and a matching wipes case. It might not be as roomy as other diaper bags on the market, but it also has straps along the bag’s bottom to hold a blanket or towel. Men especially will like this sleek-yet-functional diaper bag in comparison to bulkier totes and backpacks.
