Patagonia Atom Sling – Review

The Patagonia Atom Sling 8L bag is at home on the street, on the trail, or the water.  The Atom 8L is a two pocket sling style bag that is perfect for daily carry or brief excursions into the wilderness.  The main pocket is large enough for a tablet, notebook, fly box, snacks or other necessities.  The Atom 8L has a second pocket on the main pack for smaller items and a clip to attach your keys.  There are also two compression straps on the outside that helps to keep the pack under control and can be used to stow a light windbreaker or rain jacket.

The padded shoulder strap has an expandable pocket that offers convenient access on the go and 3D mesh on the strap and back that allows for plenty of ventilation.  The bag has a durable water repellent finish and the shape of the Atom keeps it close to your body and secure while moving around.  Getting items out of the Atom is as easy as spinning the pack around.

I mainly use the Atom Sling 8L while fly fishing on smaller creeks.  These grab and go trips do not require a lot of gear and so the Atom’s size is perfect.  I can keep two small fly boxes, a leader wallet, and snacks in the main compartment.  The pocket on the should strap holds two spools of tippet material and fly floatant.  There is a small loop under the pocket on the shoulder strap where zingers can be attached to hold hemostats and line snips.

The functionality of the Atom Sling 8L makes it a great option for anyone looking to carry a few items while they get out and venture earth.

Jackson Kayak Cuda HD

The Cuda HD by Jackson Kayak is a high end fishing yak that gets you from the shoreline to your fishing hole with ease. Wider than it’s brother Cuda, the Cuda HD maintains it’s speed and allows for a much more stable boat for stand-up fishing.

Redesigned hatch covers, a more intuitive cargo area ,and a much better designed seat positioning system makes this HD model a tough choice for other manufacturers to beat.

Follow Leaf in Creek Ambassador & Jackson Kayak Fishing Team member Robert Brown around this boat and learn what all this new boat can offer you.

Check here to see if Leaf in Creek has your new Cuda HD in stock!

Not only does Patagonia carry one amazing skirt, but multiple choices that will carry you through the season.

This week we’re featuring the Seabrook skirt…

Why do we love it? It’s made with 89% recycled polyester/11% spandex moisture wicking fabric, dries quickly and has 50+ UPF sun protection.

Bluesign® approved means it offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in the manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Plus the A-line shape it a wardrobe must-have for any body type.

Check out what Earthpeditionist Andrea says about the Patagonia Seabrook skirt:

“I am always jumping from one activity to another so I am a sucker for versatile clothing that transitions well into a multitude of environments.

I picked up the Seabrook skirt by Patagonia at Leaf in Creek AND LET ME TELL YOU!! It is super soft and crazy comfortable!

From running to Target to hiking at Rainbow Mtn in the EXTREME Alabama humidity, this skirt is cute, light, breathable, and holds its shape after wear and washing.

**Bonus feature: it doesn’t really hold on to wrinkles making it a great travel piece, (the sure fire way to this girl’s heart)!!

Leaf in Creek has them in 3 different colors! Check them out!!”
