Description

Carry the essentials.

Why deal with a full-blown daypack when you're just scooting across town on your bike to run a few errands? The Patagonia Atom carries your keys, wallet, a light jacket, and a headlamp just in case you run into a buddy and wind up yapping until dark. The beauty of the Atom is that you can just spin it around in front of you for access, instead of having to unbuckle a bunch of straps to take it all the way off. The Atom also comes with internal mesh divider pockets to keep everything organized.

This bag is fantastic!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I received this just the other day. I haven't been carrying a regular purse so I thought I would give this a try and I LOVE it! I've gotten a lot of compliments on it as well. I am able to put my Camelbak water bottle, wallet, chapstick, phone, snacks, lotion . . . all inside and there's more room for additional items. This is something I am going to be using every day! And when I'm not climbing, it will be perfect to bring on hikes when I don't need my entire pack.

Practical Purse

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's a bag, you can put stuff in it rather than carrying stuff in your pockets, or significant others pockets, which is pretty neat. It's got some zippers and some mesh and some straps. The singular shoulder strap is padded, making it very comfortable. I wish it was a little larger, but if it was larger I would probably wish it was smaller. Overall, a wise purchase.

Simply perfect

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I like reviewing gifts for my wife almost more than I like reviewing my own gear. It just feels good to find something so perfect, that looks good, and is uber-practical for someone you love.

In this case I got the Patagonia Atom Sling for my wife and she loves it. It serves as mini diaper bag and necessities pack for outings with the kids, but serves just as well for day hikes and adventures in all conditions.

I was debating between this pack and the Patagonia Lightweight Travel Sling, but chose the Atom because of its durable outer, comfortable feel, and versatility. The compression strap across the front can accommodate almost any jacket comfortably. I don't know why more companies aren't doing sling packs like these. But in the meantime, Patagonia is getting all of my praise for the Atom.

Love love love

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This bag is awesome! It is a small bag but large enough to hold my kindle, cell phone, camera, wallet, sunglasses and a few other essentials. It will be great for traveling but I plan on using around the city as well! The pocket along the sling of the bag is too small for a cell phone or camera but great for keys/Chapstick and the small pocket on the face of the bag has a great liner that won't scratch a cellphone or camera! Love love love!

really great bag! my go-to for travel!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second atom bag, the first one was bought around 2003 and this new version has much more space. I specifically bought this for my large camera and extra lens. It holds that gear in addition to sunglasses, wallet, with a little extra room to spare. Without the camera it can hold a jacket and water bottle. I've taken this bag to 3rd world countries and it has been such a great travel bag. You can easily swing it around front to protect your belongings in a crowd. The only change i would make is the the small zipper compartment on the strap. It's too small for a smartphone and that would be so convenient!

Turned into my daily purse!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I initially purchased this as a day hiking bag and well, it turned out to be my purse. I love the size is perfect and it can hold quite a bit with still being on the smaller side. I use it everyday and it's still in great shape.

People are always commenting on it.

Waterproof? Can it hold an SLR camera?

I use my atom to carry an SLR and keep the camera in a small sea-to-summit bag within for added protection....works like a charm!

it has two pockets inside to keep your gear a little more organized inside the main compartment

Awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bag is perfect...I wear it everywhere and constantly get compliments...the strap pocket is too small for an iphone, but it will hold smaller less boxy phones...i prefer to put my phone in the small top pocket on the main body that is fleece lined to keep from scratches...I have packed on an entire backpacks worth of gear on it and it works great! great bag! great buy!

Awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just took the Atom on a hike with me for the first time, and it was great. For an idea of size -- I was able to fit two 23-oz water bottles, my Torrentshell rain jacket (stuffed into its pocket), and my Nikon D50 camera all inside the bag, along with a cell phone, keys, and wallet in the smaller compartment, and a couple granola bars. It was definitely a tight fit, and probably the maximum you could get into it, but great for a day hike where you don't really need gear. There are also straps on the outside, so we could have brought another jacket strapped to it. Distributes weight well -- my boyfriend was concerned about having only one strap, but we both wore it and were comfortable. I got it in white, and I really like how it looks. Great buy!

Perfect Day Pack!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Atom Sling bag is pretty nearly perfect. I purchased this bag for the yearly trip(s) my family takes to Florida. As the designated pack mule I carry most everything for four people for up to 16 miles walked in a day, among other odds and ends I carry step daughters epi pen (which is darn bulky!) wallets, sunglasses, a first aid kit, a hoodie or two, cell phones, and usually a couple of shammi towels. My husband tends to strategically pack and fold things so everything fits, but fit it does. I think even if we stuffed everything in willy nilly it would fit. The best part of this pack is that it low profile, lightweight and really takes the pressure of my shoulders.Even with a hoodie rolled and attached to the straps on the back I didn't feel the extra weight. Having carried sling packs from other brands I can say for sure that this pack never left marks on shoulders at the end of the day and my back wasn't screaming from the lack of support. I was a serial pack changer, a new one every year. Ever since finding the Atom sling pack, I have been faithful. The durability and comfort factor will keep me faithful until this pack comes apart at the seams. I am buying a back up now b/c the sale price is a STEAL. I would gladly pay full price...but since I don't have to...score for me!!

This sling is awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a guy and have never liked stuff in my pockets and I needed a daypack for hiking so when I saw this I thought I will give it a try and see if it would work. It did. I take this bag with me every day almost everywhere I go, and when its not with me its in my car just outside. I have never actually filed it up and I always carry my .75L camelback better bottle or a 32 oz Nalgene, a headlamp for night hikes, a small first aid kit, an ace bandage, a few cliff bars, knife, phone,keys, and wallet with a ton of extra space left over. It has a small strap that crosses over the lower chest and stomach almost like a belt but at an angle, that keeps it from bouncing around when I run with it. There are two straps on the outside let me strap on an extra layer if I need it. It has a pocket on the main strap that rests across the chest that's decent size for keys, credit cards or other small things but really isn't big enough to hold a phone. Then it has a small pocket that can hold a wallet, phone, and keys comfortably and inside the main compartment there is a mesh zipper pocket and a divider that runs about 3/4th's of the way from the bottom up giving a good size area to separate items if need be. I love this thing it works great for me, its light, compact but spacious and is very comfortable to carry around, I would highly recommend it.

Awesome packs!

These are a great size. Backcountry also had great service along the way as I tried different colors, returned some, and exchanged them for others.

Is this bag going to be water resistant...

Is this bag going to be water resistant enough to use while skiing/snowboarding?

Responded on

Yeah I'd say it would work just fine. If it's dumping really wet snow it might not be the best, but for normal conditions the Atom should do fine.
