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.
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.
