Out on the river on a hot day and you're ditching the stuffy waders and cumbersome vest in favor of the Patagonia Stealth Atom Sling. It carries your tackle boxes when you don't want that plastic digging into your thigh and even has room for an extra reel, packable rain shell, and maybe even a beer (or two). The drop-down panel opens flat for easy access to your fly keeper, a welded pocket keeps your cellphone or camera dry, and if you get thirsty you have easy access to your water bottle. It's a simple thing to slide this sling around to your chest for ease of use on the river, and with extra rigging on the outside for tools and spool, everything you need is never far from hand.
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. Made from 2.1-oz 70-denier nylon ripstop with a polyurethane coating and silicone finish. Reinforced at the base with 6.3-oz 210-denier 100% nylon double ripstop with a polyurethane coating.FeaturesLightweight, tear- and weather-resistant nylon ripstopMain compartment accessed through top by zippered closure; zippered stash pockets on frontAdjustable, open, highly breathable mesh shoulder strapStuffs into its own pocketMaterialsBody: 2.1-oz 70-denier 100% nylon ripstop with a polyurethane coating and a silicone finishBase: 6.3-oz 210-denier 100% nylon double ripstop with a polyurethane coatingWeight232 g (8.2 oz)
The Atom Sling grips your back with the same tenacity as a climber latching onto a granite edge. 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 from your pack, the single-strap design lets you simply rotate the Atom to the front for quick access. The large, zippered main pocket has mesh and stretch-woven pockets inside (with hook-and-loop closure) to organize small items. A convenient zippered pocket on the shoulder strap has a soft lining to protect your valuable electronics, and adjustable buckles provide lash points for any extras on the outside. Breathable 3-D spacer mesh pads the shoulder strap and back panel to wick moisture, dry quickly and increase ventilation. For biking and hiking, an integrated waist belt keeps the pack close to your torso.
