The North Face Youth Recon Squash Backpack is the kids' version of the Recon for school and travel. The 17 liter do-it-all carries everything from lunch and a binder to a sweatshirt and a stuffed animal for airplane rides on family vacation. The front zippered pocket secures smaller items, perhaps a house key and a handful of the best rocks and acorns. Side mesh pockets carry water bottles or snacks and everything is comfortably carried thanks to a foam backpanel and sturdy straps with a sternum strap for stability.

FEATURES of the The North Face Youth Recon Squash Backpack

  • The main compartment is large enough to hold binders, folders and perhaps what’s most important, lunch
  • External zippered pocket for smaller trinkets and treasures
  • Comfortable, stitched-foam back panel
  • Mesh water bottle pockets can double as treasure keepers
  • Reflective bike-light loop
  • Breakaway sternum straps designed specifically for kids
  • Internal name label so they’ll never lose their bag

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks Great, Performs Poorly I bought this backpack as a small(er) option for my son who was entering Kindergarten. I wanted to buy a quality backpack that could potentially last a few years. My experience with North Face backpacks has been positive and I have had my Jester backpack for over 6 years. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about this backpack. Although super comfortable (per my son) and visually appealing (Lightening bolt pattern) the side pockets were demolished within weeks of use. This is a kindergartner. I know kids can be heavy on clothes but a backpack? It appears that North Face did not think to reinforce the bottom of these side pockets leaving no protection between the ground or whatever surface the bag rests on and what is inside the pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Toddlers Gave this to my daughter for her 2nd birthday so she can carry her own snacks and toys when we travel! The chest clasp is perfect. She will have this for years and will grow into it but she can wear it and wants to wear it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Backpack EVER! The first backpack we bought is still going strong 3.5 years later, and you know children are usually not kind to backpacks. We just bought another one for our 2nd child's big kindergarten debut. Great value for a great backpack

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My daughter loves it! This was a gift for my daughter in the third grade. She has had a butterfly backpack since she started kindergarten and has been begging for a new backpack. Her dad and I both use north face bags and figured this would be a fun bag to add to the collection. She loves it so much and would definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack! My son has used this backback for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade and the pack is still in great shape. And you know, kids are not "easy" on items. He will most likely be able to use it for his entire elementary career. I'm buying the same one for my daughter who is getting ready to start kindergarten

Is this big enough for a middle schooler that has a lot of books

Asked by: Megs
Hiya! Thanks for your question. This pack might be too small for a middle school student. It would be better for an elementary aged child, about 5th or 6th grade depending on homework or books needed to be carried. This pack might fit a binder, one book and lunch. If you need more room, check out the adult version of this pack: http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_The-North-Face-Recon-Backpack_10277330_10208_10000001_-1_ Or the women's version: http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_The-North-Face-Women-s-Recon-Backpack_10277332_10208_10000001_-1_ Hope this helps!
