North Face Recon Backpack
Doing a bit of recon this weekend? Trying to figure out where that awesome trail starts that you heard about? Looking for the ultimate coffee shop to meet the future spouse? If so, you'll definitely want to bring along a daypack capable of just about anything. The North Face Recon backpack is a spacious beast with 30 liters of space, including a padded sleeve for a laptop. With a padded air mesh back panel using Spine Channel and a PE sheet for extra back support, you won't want another daypack for at least a couple of years. And by couple of years I mean decades.
Innovative and comfortable, this daypack can make even the most stubborn of friends and family jealous. The back and straps are padded to the teeth to ensure the most comfortable fit as you trek across campus or through the forest. There is plenty of room for a hydration bladder which comes with a hole in the back to feed the tube out of the top, delivering fresh, delicious water to you directly. Don't let me forget that the waist straps are capable of being tucked. Worried about storage? Don't be.
With extra pockets on the front and mesh pockets on each side, you can sleep soundly at night knowing that you can stow away an extra pair of shoes or bag of apples. Now that I'm thinking about apples, you could probably even store an apple pie in the front mesh pocket. Just cover it up with some wrapping. Now I'm hungry.
