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.

Is this significantly smaller fit than the men's version? Thanks!

Asked by: KM211
Great question! Both the Women's & Men's Recon are the same backpack in terms of liter size. The only difference is that the Women's version has an increased curvature in the back panel and also narrower shoulder straps. Overall just a more comfortable fit for a Women's frame. I hope this info helps!

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!

Do you not have the Heather Grey and Burnt Coral in this style any more?

Asked by: takayla
Hey takayla, great question! At this time we are all sold out of the Heather Grey/Burnt Coral color scheme, I looked around at a couple other retailers and it looks like most of them are sold out as well. This seems to be a popular color, so we may get them back in at some point. If you are dead set on this color scheme, keep your eyes open and it may come back around! Hope this helps!

For the blue bandana color, is the white printed on or is it part of the fabric (ie. the fibers are blue and white)?

Asked by: rqc100
Hey there rqc100, thanks for your question! For that color option, the white design is printed on top of the fabric. I hope this helps!

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.
