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.

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.
