Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, sturdy bakpack! I have always purchased NorthFace backpacks, and this one did not disappoint! Beautiful color. The inside feels feel so nice on the pockets and where you put your laptop. Convenient huge front pocket to put my keys while walking across campus and in class. Nice little front pocket to keep phone or pencils for easy access. Drink holders are large enough to hold an actual water bottle. Lots of inside pockets and zippers, and a lot of them are lined with a plush feeling type material. Padding on the straps and back of the back pack. Overall an amazing backpack that I know will last for years to come. The only thing that I have left to say is that the back of the backpack seems very rigid, but hopefully it will brake in after use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack I actually bought this for my daughter, who is a college student. She absolutely loves it! She says it's really comfortable, even when carrying several books across campus. It seems very well made and we've always had great luck with the North Face backpacks in the past, one of our reasons for purchasing another one. With all the different pockets and sizes of pockets, she said it really helps her stay organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly Awesome I bought this backpack because my sister 'borrowed' my old recon backpack. I was a little disappointed that the design changed, but my old recon was awesome, so I went for it. It's great! Fits all of my books for class (they're huge) and my pencil case right on top of them. I love that the waist strap comes off instead of just tucking behind. A guy at my school recently got the men's recon, and although he loves it, even he admitted mine was better. :) Definitely recommend this bag for college/grad students like me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, well-made, functional bag! I am a bit of a backpack junkie & The North Face made a beauty in this one! The richness of the zinc grey with the eye-catching plum colored accents make it a very aesthetically pleasing bag! Now just so you don't think I am only a skin deep person, let me tell you about the soul of the bag...the insides!! The materials are of highest quality and the pocket choices and lay outs are very functional! I also like the women's fit, it's very comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I've been using it for a few weeks as a junior and college and its holding up very well! Plenty of pockets for my planner, phones, computer, and a snack. Black is such a classic color and won't show any gnarly stains that come with being in college and traveling through NYC regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful backpack! This backpack is lightweight and has straps around the sides for extra support. The built in laptop case fits my average size laptop but if I put it in with the case on it it is very tight. Lots of other compartments for any other gadgets.

Is this backpack waterproof? Also are some of the straps removable?

Asked by: zzkhan
Thanks for the question! This pack is water-resistant, not waterproof. The only piece that is removable is the sternum strap, not the shoulder straps. Hope this helps!

I purchased the women's Recon for my daughters freshman year in college. My son's is 1 year old and withstood a year at NYU. However, it's filthy. Any recommendations for cleaning the red recon bag? Thanks!

Asked by: mom2er
Hiya, thanks for the question! The best way to clean The North Face backpacks is to spot clean with a damp cloth and mild soap, then let it air dry. We do not recommend fully submerging them in water. Hope this helps!

Will a 15.6" laptop fit in this backpack?

Asked by: Holly
Hey Holly, Thanks for your question. This is an awesome woman specific pack. It has a super special laptop pocket, which is made to hold up to a 15" laptop. The laptop compartment is 13" x 12.25" x 1" but the backpack istelf is 19.25" x 14" x 9.5" so, the backpack itself could definitely hold your computer!
