Patagonia's Atom Sling 8L grips your back with a climber's tenacity. It carries the fundamentals with all the comfort of a backpack, the convenience of a shoulder bag and the ergonomic, low-profile performance of a courier's tote. The Atom's teardrop shape keeps the pack right behind your shoulders where it stays out of the way when you're moving through crowded streets and subway terminals. When you need to grab something, the single-strap design lets you rotate the Atom to the front for quick access. The large, zippered main pocket has a dedicated, padded tablet sleeve inside.
The haiku of courier bags. Stripped clean and simplified for the enlightened traveler, this carry-all holds everything you need for a full day out, whether you're at the beach or the Metropolitan, yet stuffs into its own pocket for easy stowing. It features a zippered main compartment to hold your tablet, lunch and spare sweater, and exterior security pockets for your wallet and phone. Its adjustable shoulder strap has a comfortable, ergonomic curve and is quick-drying and breathable for traveling under the summer sun.

Patagonia designed the Atom Sling Bag with a single strap and teardrop shape that stays put whether you're hiking to a lake or commuting to class. This simple design enables the bag to be accessed without having to take it off--just spin it around to your chest and you can take whatever you need from the main compartment. Patagonia also added 3D spacer mesh to keep shoulder strap and back panel comfortable and breathable. The Atom's recycled polyester is strong and light, and its DWR coating helps keep gear dry in the face of light rainfall.
