    Ready to ride.

    Patagonia designed the Atom Sling Bag with a single strap and a teardrop shape that stays put whether you're hiking to a lake or commuting to class. This simple design provides a lot of convenience for you, since you can access the bag without having to take it off—just spin it around to your chest. Patagonia also added 3D spacer mesh to make the shoulder strap and back panel more comfortable and breathable. The Atom's recycled polyester is strong and light, and its DWR coating helps keep your gear dry in the face of light rainfall. It also features adjustable buckles that let you lash more items to the pack when it's full.

    Slingy!

      This sling makes my life so much easier. I'm active so a purse just isn't practical for me most of the time and backpacks are some times TOO much. This sling was the answer! It's out of the way, it holds everything I need, and it's not bulky like a backpack. The straps are cushioned making it really comfortable for long wear and the mesh helps it to breath. Love the different pockets it has; helps to keep organized. This pack is ideal for an active person who just doesn't have time for a fussy bag. It's also great for travel.

      Excellent daybag

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This little shoulder bag is perfect for holding all the essentials without being too bulky. Great replacement for my purse, the pockets are just right for my needs. Thanks!

      Perfect for traveling

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I travel every weekend. This bag is perfect as a substitute purse. I like it because it has easy access and I can fit everything I need in it. It's so comfortable I don't even notice it!

      Love!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I had bought one of these probably 5 years ago. The main zipper broke and I was devastated. Lasted a good 3 years.
      Carries everything I need. I used it everyday and especially on hikes. Fit my water bottle, sunscreen and a little top of the mountain snack.
      I decided to get another one. I got the purple color and I love it! I look forward to more adventures with my new on!

      The Adventure Chicks Purse

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Love this great little shoulder bag. I have replaced my purse with this bad boy. It has two internal mess pocket areas. A great chapstick and debit card storing location across the chest strap. Its the perfect size to carry my wallet, planner, sunglasses, an arsenal of tea and chapsticks, plus space to spare. It is not big enough to fit a full size notepad or magazine or to shove a sweater in, but it can handle your gloves and hat, and whatever other small items you like to have on you at all times!

      I never leave home without it

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      For those of you who don't like purses because they are inconvenient- this bag is perfect for you. I often use this bag as a camera bag; it is comfortable for hiking, walking around all day, and even running. There is enough room to hold a sweater, my camera, snacks, and I often strap my hammock or water bottle on the front of the bag (there is a small place to hook a carabiner) and strap it in with the two buckles. Highly recommend. The phone pocket is nice (for my iPhone 4) but I don't think it will fit a 5 or 6.

      The second color I've purchased

        I love this bag so much this is my second one! If you are even moderately active, after using a sling bag it's hard to imagine using anything else. It stays out of the way and when needed you simply swing it around to the front without having to take it off. It's really cute too! Of course, you can't go wrong with the Patagonia brand either =)

        Nice pack

          I was considering this pack for my self but bought it for my wife. It is built well and Back Country has great prices. I tried it on and it is too small. That is in the ability for it to go around me. It is more appropriate for a small guy or a women. 8L is a great size. I am looking for something larger. My wife has not gotten accustomed to using it as designed but is just throwing it over her shoulder as you would with any sling

          Too small & pocket won't fit an iPhone 6

          • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

          If Patagonia could make this a few liters larger and make the front pocket big enough for an iPhone 6, I'll re-buy it. I really wanted to like this (I thought it'd be the perfect carry-on bag for backpacking since I could wear it in the front while transporting my pack), but as such, I had to return it. Just a bit too small to make sense, and I would be annoyed every time I'd try to zip my phone into the front pocket.

          I carry mine everywhere ..

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I basically use it to keep things out of my pockets .. like gum, my wallet, a knife, etc and I love it. Also, it's very roomy to be such a small, subtle-looking bag .. I carry notepads and books in it now too.

          I got the all black and can't recommend it highly enough

          Very Functionional

            I've had my eye on this bag for a while and finally pulled the trigger to use while snowboarding. My biggest complaint while snowboarding is getting dehydrated. I wanted just a small bag to carry a water bottle and a few granola bars. This bag fits the bill perfectly! I was also able to put my beanie and liner gloves in the bag when it warmed up. Pocket on chest strap fit my iPhone 5s perfectly. This is exactly what I was looking for. Just the right size for a day on the slopes. Sling style was great for turning bag around to my chest when on the lift or when needing access without taking the whole thing off.

            Pretty cool

              Great shipping. I ordered it on the 18th, and it came in on the 20th! I like the size of the bag. The only issue I have with this backpack is that the color is not true to the picture. I ordered the underwater blue, but the real bag is darker than in the picture above. Everything is darker, especially the light blue. I honestly like the bag in the picture better. Other than that, I love it. It will be perfect for my Disney World senior trip!!! And Puerto Rico...

              Wanted to keep!!

              • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

              Wish my review would be a 5 star and that I could keep this awesome bag. I would reiterate everything that others below have said about "not leaving home without it" and me not being a "purse gal" either. Only thing is, that I get headaches and neck aches if I have a pack only slung on one shoulder and that shoulder being the right shoulder. So, that's me. I had to return. I wish it was ambidextris (don't even know if I used that word right). The quality of the material is great, so much better than other sling bags I have tried (I have only tried one other, just FYI). I would find that this bag would last quite a long time - several years if not more. It's lightweight, got nice padding and air flow, great places to stash things....it's perfect. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone that doesn't have a quirk with their neck and shoulders :)

              I carry this EVERYWHERE!!

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I love this little bag and I've definitely put it through some things over the last year! lol I take it with me everywhere (short treks, hiking, biking, work, the gym, walking to the market, etc...) and use it daily. The little compartment on the chest strap is perfect for my ID/Debit card/cash, lipgloss, and barely fits a decent-sized folding pocket knife (my essentials! lol). I have a carabiner attached to the top thick strap for holding a Nalgene, and the smaller/thinner straps across the front of the bag hold the Nalgene in place as I zip around. My 32 oz. bottle will easily fit inside the bag, but I usually have other things that take up too much space. This really is the only bag/purse I carry and I honestly take it with me everywhere!! If I tighten the bag down all the way, I can even run with it. I am 5'6" and weigh 110 lbs.; I think the Atom is the perfect fit and is very comfortable to wear for all-day use!

              I carry this EVERYWHERE!!

              THE purse for ladies who hate purses

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I admit it: I hate purses. It's so hard to find one that's just the right size for all the essentials (roomy but not enormous), comfortable even when loaded down with the occasional bottle of your favorite alcoholic beverage, AND cute while still remaining functional. But let me tell you, ladies. THIS IS IT.

              I bought my Atom Sling this spring before a trip to Japan because I needed something as functional as a backpack but small enough to take pretty much everywhere. I had seen a few people with them around the office before and thought, why not try it? And I am sooo glad I did, this thing is a dream! It's the perfect size for traveling -- you can fit a book, some snacks, water, headphones, and a wallet with room to spare. The straps might be my favorite part of this pack, because they make it incredibly easy to clip on your favorite jacket or sweatshirt just in case the weather turns when you're out and about. My one qualm is that the "phone" pocket on the front is a bit small for my Samsung Galaxy, but that's not really an issue because I just use it to pick up random trash I find laying around (Leave No Trace, people!).

              In addition to being perfect for traveling, I've found this bag to be an awesome size for half-day excursions. I take it with me on short hikes and scrambles, and it fits everything I need with no problems (a 1L hydration bladder, a couple granola bars, camera/phone, a light jacket, and the necessary summit beer). You can even take it to parties...let me be the first to tell you that this thing fits a six pack or a full bottle of wine. You'll always be prepared with this thing :)

              THE TAKEAWAY: Buy it. Stuff it full of fun things. Take it with you everywhere.

              Unanswered Question

              I noticed on the photos above that some of the sling bags(ones on sale) appear not to have a waist strap, my question is do all come with a waist strap? The strap is crucial for my use and I would be very interested.

              Will the cell phone pocket hold an LG G3/4? What are the measurements of the pocket?

              EDIT: My apologies - I just realized the older model I have has a 3rd pocket that I use for cell phones - these models lack that (2 pockets only). It may not fit. really disappointed in this redesign now.



              [the older pocket on the main compartment] fits a galaxy s6 with decent room to spare, so yes, it would easily fit the LG.

              Unanswered Question

              Where is the "waist strap"designed to attach to the sling? The attachment slides up and down the sling. Strap reaches easily at sternum, doesn't reach easily at waist where sling is all the way around the back.

              Is there a water bottle compartment? If not can you recommend a small bag just for a few snacks, small camera & water bottle for short hikes

              No water bottle compartment, but a water bottle and snacks can fit inside the main compartment. I am able to even fit my 24oz insulated water bottle, which is pretty big. Just make sure to have a secure water bottle lid/top, because if it spills inside, everything else will get wet.
