Rated 5 out of 5 by Shehof Great for the light traveler
Bought this for my husband who travels a lot and was looking for a durable backpack to hold his laptop. He loves it and actually has started using it for his daily use to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy I am totally pleased with this product
I wanted to buy a backpack because recent travel using a briefcase has such limitations. The primary one being limited use of my two hands. The Recon backpack easily stores my laptop, travel docs, and a novel or two, along with contact lens stuff if I want to take out my lenses and move to eyeglasses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by burty The laptop compartment is nice & tight.
Solid but pricey product but then again, aren't all North Face products?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Catherine I like the style before this one better.
This backpack is entirely too small. The previous Recon style was larger and the mesh pocket on the front held my cross country shoes perfectly, but this one is way too small. Bad move North Face. The quality is great, as always, but the size did not match up. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD RECON!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by deb Recon by North Face
This is an exchanged item. A plastic snap broke on the first one, but they replaced it. My other child has had hers for four years now and will have it through her college years. That's the plan with this Recon for this child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jmking7 Great backpack that should last years to come
Needed a new backpack and knew from what I have read and seen that I couldn't go wrong with north face stuff. So I saw this recon in store and the features were what I was looking for. Fits my Mac laptop perfectly and there is plenty of room for everything I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Permom This backpack is worth the purchase!
We shopped for a while for a backpack for my son. This one is quite roomy and has room for his laptop as well. Carries all safely.
