Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim & lightweight I bought this to take on a trip with me to Disney World. I haven't gotten to use it yet but i love how lightweight it is and it has a pocket in the front that can be used to slip credit cards or a cell phone in there. It will give you quick access to the essentials. I am in love with this bag. If you are looking for something light for backpacking or traveling/ walking around, I suggest buying this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect gift! Bought this as a gift, the recipient loved the size and color. I have an older version of the bag that I use often, so I’m confident that this gift will be used for years.

Can you fit a tablet? Is this bigger than the other Pantagonia Atom Sling???

Asked by: cathee
Hiya, thanks for your question! The main compartment is roughly the same size as the other version so it would depend on the specific size of the tablet. Hope this helps!

What's the dimensions of the front pocket?

Asked by: Niccole
Hiya Niccole, thanks for your question! The dimensions of the front pocket (on the front strap) are 3 x 6.5 inches but the pocket is made partially with a stretchy mesh material so it can probably extend another inch in width. I was able to fit my iPhone 7 (standard size) in the pocket with a little shimmying. Hope this helps!

Will the front pocket hold an iPhone 6 Plus?

Asked by: Steph
HIya Steph, thanks for your question! An iPhone 6 Plus will not fit in the front pocket (on the strap). I tried my standard size phone and it barely fit. But all is not lost.... an iPhone 6 Plus (with an OtterBox case) will fit in the small pocket on the top of the main part of the pack! Hope this helps!

Is this big enough to hold a rain jacket and camera with a smaller lens? Looking for something to carry while visiting Paris and would prob just carry a rain jacket, camera, and water bottle.

Asked by: Amber
Thanks for the question! The 8L Sling measures 14.5 x 9.5 x 5.5 inches. Without knowing the exact size of your camera, it should fit in the main compartment with your rain jacket. I would attach your water bottle to the outside compression straps. If you decide to give the Atom a try and it doesn't work out, just let me know and I will get you a return label. I hope this helps a little!

Any ideas on where a water bottle should go? Inside the pack doesn't seem as convenient.

Asked by: Amytrav1
Hiya Amytrav1, thanks for your question! You *could* fit a bottle inside... but you're right, it's not as convenient. Unfortunately, Patagonia doesn't have a sling bag that has a water bottle pocket. You would need to size up to a regular backpack for that feature. Have you seen the Eagles Nest Kanga Pack? It is slightly larger and it has side pocket that will fit a bottle (not a large Nalgene size). Check it out here: Hope this helps!

Does the bag stay in place with out the waist belt? I'm torn between the old style with the waist belt and the new colors/style without the waist belt....

Asked by: Rachel
Thanks for the question! It really depends on your personal preference. Many customers felt that they did not need the waist belt and it would dangle & get in the way when not clipped - so Patagonia updated the design. I personally feel that the waistbelt will keep the bag more secure. If you think you will clip it each time, then I would go with that version. I hope this helps a little!
