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 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for YOUNG children I bought this backpack for my son when he entered Kindergarten. It held up the whole year, and I was happy that I wouldn't have to buy him a new one when he started 1st grade. The quality of the bag is amazing, however, it is almost too small for his 1st grade binder this year, which is 1 and 1/2". The depth is fine, but the width is the problem. I'm sure the bag will hold up the rest of the year, and next year I will buy the adult version of the Recon Squash...and hand the Youth size down to my youngest who will be entering Kindergarten next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for young kids, won't work for older ones! We bought two of these, one for our 1st grader and one for our 5th grader (she's tiny!). The backpack itself is great, we love the look and feel of it, but it is pretty small. The fifth grader can't even fit her binder in it. I think this will be perfect through 2nd grade, maybe even 3rd, but when they really have to start carrying things for school, it's just too small! We had to return the 5th graders bag, but we're keeping the other one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bag! My daughter who was entering 1st grade decided that she wanted a "grown up" backpack. It is the perfect size for her, and carries all that she needs for school. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a great product but the youth recon squash bags are too small. They were bigger last year. Can you all please do something about that. I can't find no other faults with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for 7+ year old My son loves this pack - the colours, the pockets, the comfort, the fit. It holds his homework, library books, lunch box and water bottle perfectly. It will be great for hiking and travel as well, and I am happy with the quality. A great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this product but I found this year the bag is smaller than the previous year. I now have to look for a slightly bigger bag. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. Thinking out of the box for a mens diaper bag. Not bulky or atrocious. Performs perfectly as such. Plenty of pockets and storage for a small pack. Should last long enough for the little one to take to school too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our Kindergartener We have a great little Deuter backpack for our five-year-old that fits well and he can actually carry himself but he needed a folder sized pack for school so we had to size up. This was the perfect middle ground between those huge packs that look like they will tip the kid over and the too small Deuter. My son can fit a change of clothes, a small lunch box, water, rain gear and the random rocks and sticks that MUST be collected in this pack. While it is on the big side in terms of any kind of hiking, it's great for school, camp, etc. We also like that there are three or four little pockets for trinkets and/or useful things.

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!
