The go-anywhere, take-it-everywhere Atom Pack carries just what you need for a day of traveling, a day at work or better yet, a day of hiking cross-country.
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.
An easy-to-access sling backpack is up for your next challenge, whether running mountain trails or biking city streets. The teardrop shape is supportive and easy to swing around to reach the main zip compartment, so you don't have to slow down every time you need to check your phone. Interior mesh and stretch-woven pockets organize odds and ends like first-aid kits and energy bars, while another zip pocket at the shoulder is lined to protect valuables. For all-day comfort, the shoulder strap and back panel are padded with 3D spacer mesh that wicks moisture, dries quickly and enhances breathability. Style Name: Patagonia Atom 8L Sling Backpack.
