Product Description Item No.   10247817

The North Face Recon Backpack is a lightweight backpack built to take on the day to day challenges of school and weekend challenges on the trail. The pack boasts two compartments, the main section featuring a laptop sleeve for up to 15 inch machines, a tablet sleeve, and the rest is just pure space for books, clothing, or food. Always bring food, your brain needs fuel. On hike days, the laptop sleeve turns into a hydration sleeve, hang the bladder from the tab at the top and fish the drink tube out of the exit port. The second zippered compartment is all about organizing your smaller items so they don't get lost to the bottom of the bag. Extra pens have their own special spot, so you always have one to loan out to the cutie sitting one chair over. The front panel is a mesh stash pocket, where you can easily jam a rain jacket and the side mesh pockets carry water bottles. The whole load can be controlled using the webbing cinch straps, so you don't look so bulky. The sturdy back panel provides support and the air-mesh is padded for cushion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Previous models were better I bought this pack about a month ago- figured it would be good for traveling to family just outside the city and for light hikes, beach days etc. I had the older model but forgot about a peach in it and a few months later it was beyond savings so I got this new one. The side pockets don't have a drawstring like the old version which I think allowed you more options for what you can put in there and the mesh outside pocket was slimmer and the clip is sewed into the bag so its not as flexible as old pack. Either way- great pack that allows for a lot of room for traveling or transporting laptop and books ( I used a recon when I was in college too). Would definitely recommend- straps are very comfortable too, I've run to work a few time and have had little issues with this on my back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting pack I bought one of these for my daughter 3 years ago and hers is still working perfectly. Wears well and all zippers and clips work still. She uses it for school and light hiking. Bought this one for my son and expect a long life out of it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The North Face Recon Backpack I bought this about a week ago and am in love with it. The black color is by far my favorite color. It has a lot of space, which is beneficial to me because I have to carry a lot of books and binders for school. It is also very fashionable.
