Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish I bought different design, but i like it. I recieved this back pack as a Christmas present for a school back pack and at first I was pleased. It has a nice computer pocket and good cup holders on the sides. Although it would be a very good hiking back pack it doesn't seem like it is a good back pack for school. The biggest pocket barley fits all of my spiral notebooks and binders and it is very hard to get out. Also it is very heavy when picked up compared to my old backpack it is not light weight. Too many straps and not easily acessable. I recommend, but not for a school back pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy backpack I was iffy about TNF backpacks because I was a used to to LL Bean bookbags that I've had for the past 7yrs and the lining on the inside is falling apart so I decided to buy a north face. My main concern was wondering if my hp 15.6' laptop would fit in the sleeve and it does! :) I can fit my entire life In this bag which makes me happy. Ivhope this bag will last me as long as my LL Bean one did or longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT and SO high quality but colors aren't as they seem It is so comfortable i can carry multiple textbooks at the same time, it protects my laptop, and i look good in it. However, i have a hard time fitting binders in it. Overall though, it is great for travel, hiking, and school and i love it, i just wish i could fit a one and a half inch binder plus some other stuff instead of only that one item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good As a high school senior, I have a lot of weight to carry around. While this backpack has served as great protection against the elements (rain and snow), I find it giving my sore shoulders both due to the strap placement and the weight. I strongly recommend going with a darker color because I purchased light grey and within a few months dirt was showing! Overall I think this is a sturdy backpack, but I would recommend something more lightweight for students.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6.5 years of heavy use For all of high school and most of college I have used my Recon backpack daily, and now after 6.5 years of heavy use it is just now showing light signs of wear. It is still holding up and usable today.

whats the difference in the one size and 31L backpack?

Asked by: shesh
Hey there, Thanks for the question. Sorry about any confusion regarding the sizing on this. The Women's Recon Backpack has a 31 liter capacity so the One Size and 31L sizes are actually the same. I'll have our Web Team update this on the website to avoid future confusion.

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!

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!

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!

- + Size Guide

The North Face Women's Packs

SIZE One Size X-Small / Small Medium / Large
Torso Size (Adjustable) N/A" 13 - 18" 15 - 20"
Torso Size (Fixed) 15 - 18" 14 - 17" 16 - 19"
Hipbelt Size 24 - 35" 24 - 30" 30 - 36"

HOW to MEASURE TORSO SIZE
1. Put your chin to your chest and feel for the big bone protruding on your neck at the top of your spine. That's the C7 vertebra.

2. Feel your hip bone, the top part of this is your iliac crest. Find the spot on your back that is level with the top of this crest.

3. Have someone measure the distance between these two points, following the contours of your spine.


HOW to MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE
1. Measure around your body where the hipbelt will rest while you hike. This should be just above your iliac crest.


NOTES
The size info above is for The North Face technical and backpacking packs. Day packs and work / school packs are offered in One Size, and feature adjustable straps to fit an array of sizes.

Women's packs feature a women's-specific design for a better fit and more comfortable carry on smaller female torsos.
