The North Face Recon Backpack is a solid backpack for years of school and travel. Durable 210D Cordura® nylon mini-ripstop fabric takes a beating while FlexVent™ suspension with injection-molded shoulder straps and a padded mesh backpanel and spine channel provides cushioned comfort as you lug your books to class. In the technological day and age, you've gotta protect your laptop and tablet, so there is a padded, fleece sleeve for each (up to 15" laptops). Since it is 2015, TNF has taken it upon themselves to boost the options for organization as well as added a front stretch stash for all your extras. Stuff in a power cord for your phone or load it up with candy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Backpack! Just bought this pack two weeks ago to replace my old recon backpack that I commute to work with daily. I love the improved features! Soft linings for valuables and interior sleeves for tablets and my laptop. Overall, A++++

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice materials and storage, not for me I bought this backpack and returned it 2 days later because it just wasn't big enough for my laptop. My computer is an average size (15.6 inches,) but it barely fit in the pack. The materials and construction were solid and the pack had a really nice look. The pockets were conveniently placed and spacious. If my computer were smaller, I would have kept it for sure. I picked up the Moosejaw/Osprey co-lab pack instead and am loving it! It fits all my school supplies nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Organization and Protects Laptop and Tablet Very happy with this backpack. If you need a backpack for travel and your laptop/tablet this is it. Protects your computers very well including very waterproof. Many different pockets for organization. Seems very durable but I need more time to access. It is a bit heavy but that is the price for the protective capability. My only complaint is I don't believe the 31 Liter capacity as advertised, it seems smaller to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Backpack I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas and he loves it. He previously had the same North Face backpack for 6 years and it began falling apart. I got him this one and he loves all of the compartments, the fact that it has a laptop holder for school, and the sturdiness is amazing. I would recommend this backpack to anyone, whether in school or not! It is comfy on your back and has padding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the front pocket I bought this to use as a diaper bag. I know that sounds weird, but I wanted a solid backpack with a lot of pockets. The front pocket that doesn't zip was the selling point for me. I can slide my phone easily in and out of the bag- since I live in an area where I have to show an ID everywhere it is very useful. I like this bag so much that my husband tried it out and is now going to order one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small and heavy I bought this as a book bag for my 9 th grader. It was as described but it has a hard back which makes it heavy, but good for support, and it can't fit all of his books and binders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack Bought this for travel. It's comfortable and easy to pack. The padded compartments are great for packing electronics and the size is good for overhead bins or under the seat in front of me.
