    I brought this backpack about a week ago and not gotten a chance to use it seeing my high school hasn't started up yet. However I have tried testing the capacity of it and I can fit 6" worth of binders and maybe one more 1" if you really need the space. I love the organization pocket because in my other backpack things would always get lost! and the water bottle pocket space does not get compensated even when the pack is at max capacity. The front mesh pocket is way more useful then most of the other pack front accessories from the north face like the surge II. the back is super stiff and really supports a whole load which makes carrying it around for six hours not too torturous! overall great pack for busy students who don't like to go to their lockers like I do, and need to carry a ton of books but would still like to be able to stand up when I'm 50.

    I bought the Women's Recon backpack last year and loved it. Over the weekend, I went to buy one for my mom for Mother's Day, only to find out that it has been redesigned. The laptop sleeve portion in the older model offers more room (for more than just a laptop, like magazines, etc). Also, the front pouch in the older model is more flexible (I could easily fit a travel pillow inside). The side pockets used to have drawstrings so you could put items other than water bottles, now since they no longer have drawstrings, if you put something other than water, it will just fall out because it's only elastic. Finally, the clips in the new design are super tiny and quite annoying to un-fasten. Why redesign something that was working so well? Please bring back the old Recon design!

      Comments about TheNorthFace WOMEN’S RECON BACKPACK:

      So I had an older version of the Recon in bright blue and pink from my HS days and after maybe 8 years, it started to fade, so I decided to grow up and at the same time not mess with perfection. I got this latest version in black and the men's in blue for my boyfriend because it's the best, not too roomy and not too small and security for things like your wallet with great compartments.
      However, I found three things disappointing.
      1. The bungy cynches are gone on the water bottle holders so it's no longer possible to bend over without things spilling out.
      2. Front mesh is smaller now so it's no longer possible to stick my running shoes in the outside of the bag.
      3. There is no longer a latch keeping the laptop's sleave closed.
      Over all, it's a great backpack for weekly city commutes in SF and weekend hikes and runs on My.Tam and it's almost perfect.

      I received this backpack as a birthday gift in anticipation of studying abroad. I am going to Spain in 2016 and I needed the best woman's backpack in the coolest colors I could find...I found it! Thank you Northface!

      Got this for my trip to Italy, it made carrying all of my important stuff so easy. The pack has great compartments for all of my items like Ipad, wallet, passport, extra clothes and so much more. Great purchase and I know I will continue to use it for many more vacations.

      Excellent backpack. I bought it for my daughter to use in college. She had tried several styles that were too big, too small or wouldn't hold her water bottle in securely. This fit all her needs, and comes in a great selection of colors. The sales associate in the store was especially helpful.

      Finally Found the Perfect Backpack

      Comments about TheNorthFace WOMEN’S RECON BACKPACK:

      I had been looking for a new backpack for quite a while. I'm a college student and a biology major so I have a lot of books and binders to carry around with me. I was having a hard time finding a new backpack that was big enough for all of my books. I'm also fairly picky about the color, pattern, etc. When I saw the purple striped recon backpack I knew I found a winner! It's a perfect size for all of my books and I love the color and pattern. It was money well-spent!

      I absolutely love this backpack. It is quite stylish and what impresses me the most is that it doesn't cause sweaters and shirts to pill as others have done in the past. Thanks North Face!!!

      Comments about TheNorthFace WOMEN’S RECON BACKPACK:

      I love this backpack. It fits everything I need to take with me so well; including holders for two large water bottles I carry with me everywhere. It's also very light and comfortable due in part to it's ergonomically correct shape. Very sturdy and stays relatively clean considering what I put it through. Have not had it long but I am definitely happy I bought it.

        Comments about TheNorthFace WOMEN’S RECON BACKPACK:

        I love this backpack! I was worried about it because a little over a year ago i bought the Jester2 backpack and I hated it. I never used it because I couldn't even fit 2 textbooks in it. however this backpack is perfect. fits plenty, has tons of pockets and storage areas, i love the 2 water bottle pockets, the laptop sleeve is perfect for my 17" macbook. I'm a college student and it isn't uncomfortable on my back when walking around campus, if anything it makes me posture feel better. I'm considering buying another one to use for hiking. Well worth the money for this backpack.
