Reviewers like these things about the Black Diamond Axis 33

  • According to users, the Black Diamond Axis is a simple, lightweight, ‘guide’ style daypack designed for vertical adventures whether that be on rock, snow or ice.
  • Reviewers mentioned that the fit of the bag is very much an alpine style fit.
  • Users took notice of its removable webbing waist belt and Black Diamonds ‘reACTIV’ suspension system that provides good support when the pack is fully loaded.
  • Other users thought that it is completely fine to wear with a t-shirt but is more at home under a more traditional alpine layering.
  • They noticed that its thermoformed back panel has adequate padding.
  • They also noted that the pack has a slim profile which stays right out of the way when climbing.
  • Reviewers pointed out that it has attachment points on the face for both ice axes and crampons.
  • They also noted that it has a tuck-away rope strap and hydration pocket.
  • Testers said that the pack features a smaller top loading pocket which helps when separating smaller bits of gear and under this compartment there’s an even smaller zip pocket.
  • Reviewers mentioned that the user’s kit can be easily accessed by spinning the pack around or directly when it’s clipped to a belay by the grab handle.
  • Other reviewers also found that it is a fantastic rugged daypack.
  • Reviewers indicated that the bag carries nicely.
  • Other reviewers mentioned that its padding is thick but doesn’t interfere or rub on skin.

Reviewers don’t like these things

  • A reviewer had issues with its breathability that is generally quite poor.
  • Another reviewer noted that its mechanics of the ergoACTIV system do seem to add some bulk on the hip belt right around the spine.
