    Patagonia Atom Sling Daypack is rated 4.5152 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW, BEST sling bag around!! I've owned several sling-style bags (REI, Timbuk, etc) and all have either been too big, unable to customize the fit I wanted, or poor workmanship (My REI bag slipped off my shoulders all the time, Timbuk's zipper ripped off in less than 2 yrs). This bag felt perfect from day 1. Could easily dial in my fit. Never felt to big or too small. Went camping this past weekend and it held MORE than i ever imagined (ipad 2 with Survivor case, diapers, water bottle, snacks, kids change of clothes, small flashlight, wallet (in front pocket) and more!! Love how I can easily swing it over and all pockets are accessible and stays put when u need it too. Styles is sweet, not too much or too little. Got lots of compliments, and my wife loved it!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Day Travel Bag Love this bag. I bought it for a trip to Disneyland since I hate carrying around backpacks that you have to constantly rearrange to fit on the rides. It holds a surprising amount of stuff-I had my big wallet, a jacket, camera, and little incidentals all nicely packed into this thing. I loved it so much that I use it every day for my "purse" and get countless complements on how cool it looks and how conveniently it works. The straps along the back even hold an additional jacket when my boyfriend wants me to carry his too! it also has straps that can go around your waist if you're in a position where you want the pack tigher to your body. The only thing I'd change is the pocket in the front strap would be nice if it was big enough to hold an iPhone. I can fit it in the fabric lined side pocket (which also nicely holds a pair of sunglasses), but it would be much more convenient if I didn't have to slide the pack to answer my phone. Since the phone doesn't fit, it does fit a chapstick and ID/credit cards, and park passes quite nicely. Excellent purchase. Highly recommend. The picture I included shows the size of the bag, but it's slung to the side because I had just gotten my camera out. Normally it fits flat right in the middle of the back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits iPad Air but not iPhone, Galaxy etc This is my third sling style bag. I am moving to this one from a PacSafe sling which was also awesome but left me wanting more cargo room. The pacsafe was great for a Kindle or iPad Mini during the daily commute. When I started carrying an iPad Air, hat and gloves for winter mornings, a snack and some papers, I realized it was time for a larger sling. In comes the Atom. It's very comfortable and sits well across the back and shoulder, even without the waist strap. It does fit the iPad Air pretty well. It's not a "perfect" fit but it's not a dealbreaker. The real bummer about this bag is the front pocket is useless for any smartphone. It doesn't fit the Galaxy S3, iPhone 5 or even an iPod 5th Gen. It will hold a badge, bus/train card and a pocket knife or keys. With that said, it's efficient bag for an urban commute or outing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Daypack I used this as a daypack when I traveled through Europe. There are two secure pockets to keep money and valuables. This pack is good when you need a cross between a purse and a backpack. I did not want to carry a full daypack around each day but I wanted to bring a water bottle, coat, etc. and this was a better alternative to lugging around a big purse. It is also very easy to spin around to access the main pouch to frequently get out a camera or phone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent travel sling Used this travel sling for a two-week trip to Europe, running all over Paris and London. This sling worked very well. I hauled a pricey, compact mirrorless camera, a pocket travel book and compressible jacket all at one time. I even used the mini-pocket on the front strap to store coins. Even when loaded up, this sling was very comfortable, with lots of padding on the underside and shoulder strap. One nice secret: it's really easy to "flip" the sling around so that it's on your belly, a nice feature when you're in a crowded area and worried about pitpocketing. I also used this for a one-day snowboarding outing, and it didn't quite work as well. It was comfy, but at speed the sling had a tendancy to slip around (even with the second belt loop secured). But for its intended use, that being travel and day trips and sporting events and virtually any situation where you want to travel light, but with something that doesn't quite fit in your pocket, this Patagonia sling is awesome.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best sling bag out there It's everything I was looking for, small (minimalist, just for the essentials), easy carring and pick up things in the bag without getting off, like a regular backpack, but for less than an inch it does't fit a 10.1 tablet or an iPad, really it's a pity. I think it's really good for every day or for city visit, it's fine for guys an girls. It could be also a good idea a small outside pocket for a 33cm3 (12floz) bottle in one of the sides, but it could made it a bit bulkier, just a though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great little bag I loved the Victorinox sling bag of similar design, I had it for many many years - but the new ones just didn't quite cut it when it was recently time to replace. This bag has improved on the Victorinox design and added many great features and a bit more space - while still keeping it a minimal size and easy to carry. This bag finds a use non-stop for me ... city commuting, hiking, travel, day pack, etc. I use it almost every day and LOVE IT. I'm a bag geek and really appreciate a well-designed bag. Wish the strap pocket was a little bigger, otherwise it's a great design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I carry the Atom on longer bike rides. I can put a rain jacket, gels, and sometimes two 20oz water bottles in it, all at the same time. It's small enough to not create a sweat spot on my back. I also use it for walks and hikes. It serves well in multiple everyday/specialized uses.
