Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 57 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great! Fast shipping on this product. Nice overall apperance July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Back Pack! Purchased back pack for my 13yr old son. Hard to find a backpack with sternum strap. Great Back Pack, good support. Was surprised to find it was approved by chiropractors. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great pack for foreign travel. This pack has multiple pouches and compartments making it easy to organize documents, clothing, I-pad, etc. while traveling. Lightweight but durable. Very happy with it. June 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Bought for hiking; will also use for school We purchased this pack for my son who was going on a 4 day hiking trip. The pack holds a lot, has quite a few pockets to stash and organize gear. The padded straps and back of the pack are really nice features as well. And for hiking, I'm really happy it has the chest and waist straps to secure the pack so you can hike without having to hold onto your pack. I only wish the water bottle pockets on the sides were a little taller to accommodate 20/24 oz water bottles a little easier. They do fit, but can topple out if you're running hard. My son has already asked if this can be his school backpack for the fall, so it's clear he likes it as well. Lastly, the the lifetime warranty from North Face is a real bonus, and we hope to use the pack long after school is over. May 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby My son could not love it more! We have had Underarmour backpacks in the past and their quality has seriously depreciated. He's in high school carrying all his books and binders and loves this backpack! He said it feels so much better on his back and is easy to keep organized. A key for high school boys! April 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great Pack Great backpack. So far has been a heavy duty back pack that has been loaded down without fail. April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby 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. March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby 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. Great gear! February 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby The laptop compartment is nice & tight. Solid but pricey product but then again, aren't all North Face products? January 15, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5áby 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!!!! December 23, 2013
