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!!
