Overall a good backpack. The material used is durable though I'm not sure how it would do in rainy weather. Lots of pockets of different sizes for your storage needs. Sturdy back for shoulder and back support. The only reason it did not get an extra star was because the laptop compartment was too small for my laptop. Unless you have a smaller than average portable PC you'll find your laptop asking for more space. Otherwise, I'd choose this pack as my everyday carry.

        Comments about TheNorthFace RECON BACKPACK:

        This back pack is one of the best things I've owned, it's helped me travel with a bag I can rely on, I have never been disappointed with nay of my current Borth Face gear, and I am really excited to put this into use as I further my education and I use it to travel over spin with my family! Your crazy not to have a Northface bag or any of their gear!

        Comments about TheNorthFace RECON BACKPACK:

        The backpack is great. My only problem with it is that like i said above its a bit too wide. The shoulder straps also might be a bit too thick as well but i suppose it was so they could last longer. Aside from that the overall design is great. And the laptop strap is a great addon.

          Comments about TheNorthFace RECON BACKPACK:

          I bought this backpack to carry my laptop and all other technology back and forth to work. Love the fact that it has 2 separate padded compartments for a laptop and tablet - great for an iPad and laptop! Both compartments have plenty of space for peripheral devices and chargers.The 2 side pockets are perfect for carrying enough water to get you through the day. The back area is great for tossing items that you need to secure and still easily reach with one arm - example - car keys! Incredibly comfortable when fully packed and the shoulder straps don't leave your fresh pressed button down full of creases! Seems like it would be perfect for a day hike in the mountains too . . . ah, one can dream! :)

                I've used this pack for 14 years! It lasted all through college as well as many hiking and camping trips. It is also perfect for a short vacation to hold all my gear and keep it organized. I love the ergonomics and durability. I was heartbroken when some of the material inside the pack started to breakdown but the warrantee service was impeccable and I've received my new pack within days! I look forward to putting the new model through its paces! Thanks

                            This new replacement from the prior Recon back pack feels lighter, with seemingly better materials which repel water well. I enjoy a better internal pocket arrangement which permits easy recovery of storage items.
                            Also, the external outer flap pocket is better designed to store wet beach items or training gear.
                            I examined current backpack stitching closer and found it to be excellently done, designed for exact stress points of the backpack to perform well.

                                      After almost 40 years of service I sent in my oval intention tent to see if it could be revived. Alas, it had seen its last journey. Since I had purchased the tent at an outlet store, North Face backed their product by providing me with a gift card for half the original purchase price. My wife and I both purchased the recon backpacks and both of us have been exceptionally pleased with their fit, performance and versatility. Even better, we know that North Face will stand by their product for decades to come.
