Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bag for commuting So far so good. Have had for a couple weeks and works great for bike commuting. Haven't tried for hiking yet but should be good for shorter trips or light trips when a full waist belt is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bookbag for urban life I bought this book bag in 2011 and it lasted me about 5-6 years before I needed a new one. I work as a community nurse and I need a sturdy bookbag

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and functional I recently purchased the North Face Recon to replace my 11 year old North Face Bandwidth. Despite being female I did not like the way the women's bag felt on my 5'9" frame when I tried them in the store so I went with the regular Recon. My husband and I just returned from a week in Croatia and loved the Recon. The compartments were great for keeping everything handy while traveling. The water bottle holders worked well to accommodate different bottles, something my old backpack couldn't handle. The bag was also great on hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for college Bought this for college due to back strain from other backpack. This ACA approved backpack keeps the load nice and snug on my back making it feel much lighter. My back problems have sub-ceded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack I’ve ever gotten Just upgraded to this backpack for my son in preparation for college. He loves it!!! He says it’s made with everything in mind such as soft fabric inside the pockets for his laptop and cell phone yet there’s sturdyness for procttion. The size is perfect for a 17” laptop but not huge in the least bit. The shoulder straps are so well padded which adds extra comfort when hauling heavy books. My son couldn’t think of ANYTHING he disliked or that needed improvement. Like I said, he LOVES it.

- + Size Guide

The North Face Men's Packs

SIZE One Size Small / Medium Large / X-Large
Torso Size (Adjustable) N/A" 15 - 20" 17 - 22"
Torso Size (Fixed) 17 - 20" 16 - 19" 18 - 21"
Hipbelt Size 28 - 40" 28 - 34" 35 - 42"

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.
