Not just for fishing

Great pack for fly fishing. Integrated fly storage & work surface were selling points for me, but Ive also used the pack to carry climbing shoes for bouldering approaches / scrambles

Great addition to fishing in Michigan

Purchased this sling to use instead of a vest on Rogue River and eventually other rivers in Michigan. It has all the space and design for the pro angler or weekend warrior fisherman. The lightweight design makes it comfortable to cast without getting in the way of any casting motion. Multiple interior pockets lets you set up how to store leader, ti... Read Moreppet, split shot, fly boxes, and a sandwhich. The tippet holder outside the sling is in a great location but not easy to put tippet rolls on - you have to pinch it or use pliers to pull cord though. Water bottle pouch is a nice addition but havent used that feature yet. All in all a great pack!

Not just for the fly-guy!

This is NOT just great for fly fishing. Im using this as an camera bag. The convenience of this bag is fantastic! The way you can just unhook one strap and flip it to the front of you is genius. Im sure it makes an excellent fishing pack, but its so much more.

Quality Product

I purchased the Atom sling as an alternative to the more expensive manufacture of similar fishing products. I have been very satisfied with the quality and versatility of the Atom Sling. It has proven to be comfortable during long days on the water and light in the hot days in the south. I recommend this to other anglers looking for an option that ...

missing some key pieces

Overall decent bag. Solid construction. But where am I supposed to put my net? What about rod straps to hold rod tube on the bag?

Creative Sling

Very detailed sling but not too many options. Design gives you all the options you need for your fishing requirements to work on the river.

exessive stap

needs some adjustments. i had to cinch the belt really tight on both points just to get the bag tight to my body. the excess straps secure with a small band, two secure points would be nice for the excess straps. wading and kayaking causes straps to move the band especially casting and landing beast on a daily.

Fishing Pack

I like the size and functionality of the pack. I dont think the transition from back to front body, on the water, is as smooth as I thought it would be.

Best Sling out there

I have always used a waist pouch which I liked but decided to try a sling and I will never go back it is so easy to use and stays out of the way while fishing until needed Great Product

Perfect for wade fishing

This sling bag is perfect for wade fishing. You can slide it around your body and access everything you need. Perfect for light pack fishing where you are constantly moving.

Comfortable, functional.

Been fishing this bag for 2 months (7 weekend trips) . Very functional, durable and well designed for fly fishing with or without waders.

Great fly pack!

Im an extremely avid Fly fisherman, owned many packs and this is one of my favorites! Theres plenty of room for multiple fly boxes, phone, Etc. This also has a dry pouch inside that I put my phone in!

Great carry on personal item

I like to travel light and have been searching for a personal item sling bag that is wide enough to rest my feet on in the plane "I'm short and the Height of the seats mess with my back on an 8 hour flight", the front pocket works great for TSA liquids, I was able to fit my hiking boots in the main pocket and during the trip used it ... Read Moreas a day pack. It worked as an Aer lingus flight personal item and proved to be water proof on a trip to Ireland during cyclone Dennis where we were hit with some heavy winds and rain during some of our hikes. One other person mentioned wishing there was a place for the second strap when it's not attached and I agree but appreciate how secure and comfortable the whole pack is after carrying it every day for the past two weeks. Quality materials worth the cost.

Good but could be “The Best”

I think the design and functionality is great. It works great when I’m wading and need to switch up my presentation I just sling the bag around my chest and I have a great work station. This sets this bag apart from most in the market in my opinion. The things that make it a 4/5 is that I find the mesh organizational dividers/pockets are all too sm... Read Moreall for most of my gear so they usually don’t get much use and I just end up throwing everything in the bag. I also find that the zipper could have been made a little longer on both ends allowing the bag to open more. These are small details but when spending over a $100 on a small wading bag these are things I take into consideration. I also find that if I want the bag to ride up higher on my back I have to really tighten the straps since I am a pretty thin guy. Something to consider but definitely depends on the person. Overall a great choice though if the things I mentioned don’t concern you. Definitely worth every penny.

Well thought out bag

Really enjoying using this bag for flyfishing in the northwest. It is compact and stays out of my way, but it fits comfortably over my 6'4" frame. Enough space for jacket/lunch, but not huge and does not get in the way of fishing. Only thing I wish it had were attachment straps or points for a rod case for hiking in.

High quality

This is Patagonia’s smaller bags and it’s designed for fly fishing perfectly. Even though it’s small it has a place for everything while fishing, even water and lunch. Easy to re tie leaders or flies while in the water and never gets in the way while casting. Great work

Functional and Stylish

I am 5'3" 110 lbs and the bag is of good size (was afraid it would look big on me). Very well-made and functional with lots of well-proportioned pockets. I wear it as my everyday bag for a sporty look, so I usually left one side unbuckled - which is why I wish there is a place on the bag where I could store the unbuckled strap without lea...

Sling bag convenient, light, versatile

Like the bag for hard case and waterproof compartments. Terrific to have internal key ring and the expandable strap pocket.

Great Sling with well thought out design.

I've now owned and used the Stealth Hip Pack, Stormfront Sling and this Stealth Atom Sling and I think this is my favorite of the three. Fit is great, layout is well thought out and quality is second to none. I really liked the Stealth Hip Pack, but not having something so bulky on the front of your person is really enjoyable. Oddly enough the... Read More capacity of this bag seems a bit smaller than the hip pack despite it being listed as higher volume. This is like due to the ample side storage compartments found on the hip pack. Despite this, there is PLENTY of room and I appreciate the internal waterproof pouch on this sling which was not found on the hip pack. I loved the stormfront sling, but have decided I just cant live without the front zip open work table found on the stealth sling and hip bag. If Patagonia made a stormfront bag with a front compartment a la the stealth stuff it sure would be dreamy.....but this bag is already near perfect.

Love Love this Sling bag...!

Just received this few days ago, and just got off the river where I put it through it’s paces. I carry light gear, and this is perfect.. fits great, the easy click off strap for the slide around pack to my front worked flawlessly. I love the front pocket work station; I could change/fix flies/lures fast and comfortably. Plenty of room in bag for ge... Read Morear, phone, camera, water bottle. Well Designed Patagonia! 🙏🏽 Can’t wait to get back on the river with it

Overall, a Great Product!

Just a couple of minor things kept me from giving it a 5-star rating: the waterproof pouch is a tight fit for my iPhone XS Max with a slip-on silicon protector case. It needs to be either a half-inch wider or an inch taller. Also, the pouch on the front of the strap should be a bit lower. It feels like it's crowding my neck, but after fishing ...

Awesome Bag

This is my go-to bag for fly fishing. I use a tenkara setup from patagonia as well and just leave this bag packed for a quick-ready fishing go-bag. With this, and my minimal fishing gear, I fit everything i need for fly fishing, keeping me from requiring a vest as well. Highly suggest for tenkara rod fisherman.

Very Happy With This Pack

I hike everyday and needed a durable bag , sling style... because if you sweat in a two strap bag everyday for a month , you’ll be a stinkin’. It’s just the right size for a day hike. It has waist straps so if you bend over to tie your shoe the pack won’t fall off over your head....(a major flaw in Kavu sling packs) . It’s waterproof. I can fit 1.5... Read More liters of water and 3 beers , or up to about 5 beers and a small water. Haha. In the front pocket there’s plenty of room for my I Phone and some other stuff, including a squashed down roll of TP. Not only ‘would’ I recommend this to a friend, I did recommend this to a friend yesterday and they bought one this morning. Worth the money spent.

Fantastic bag with a few draw backs

This bag is fantastic for your average wading day trip! The great perks to this bag is the storage compartments all have great compartments to store all your angling gear. My main reason of buying this pack over any other sling pack was the size (not too bulky!) and the water bottle compartment. I was very surprised that Patagonia did not include a... Read More rod holder on the side. My only other qualm with this pack is it also slides on my shoulders while fishing so,I find myself adjusting it back onto the sweet spot on my shoulder. I would highly recomend this pack if the above issues aren't very important to you because it is a well designed bag with just a few missed opportunites to make this pack the ultimate fishing day pack!

Great Bag!

Yep, great bag! Carries well. Well made, plenty of space and easily accessible. I use it as a photo gear bag when traveling. It's been all around Europe, Russia, South America and Morocco. There's room for 4 or 5 lenses (Micro Four Thirds) is separate lens cases. iPad, iPhone, monopod or tripod lashed to the outside, water bottle, filte...
