Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Somewhat disappointing I bought this to use for school. I had heard very good things about the reliability of the North Face brand. This was my first time in years using a traditional style backpack and the padded back, molded straps, and ACA endorsed design for a woman's skeletal system sold me on the product. I have had back problems before and wanted the best to avoid causing any relapses. My physical therapist helped me get the straps just right during a backpack screening their office offered and gave me some tips on how to lift it safely. I just finished my first week of classes using the backpack and my initial impressions are as follows: Fit: extremely comfortable; holds up to a lot of walking, including multiple flights of stairs; I use both shoulder straps and the waist and chest cross straps every time I carry it, there's no discomfort with any of them rubbing wrong. Size: large hardcover textbooks, binders, iPad, writing utensils, food and water for a full day on campus all fit in the large pockets; plenty of room to organize everything. Durability: here's where I ran into trouble. The Recon is water resistant as advertised. I was out in the rain with it and the water just slid right off; the contents stayed perfectly dry. So far so good. Here's the not so good. The mesh water bottle pockets on either side did not hold up well at all. I put one standard disposable 16.9 oz. plastic bottle in each pocket each day, and the bottom of one of the pockets had a sizable rip by Thursday afternoon. I took it back in and exchanged it for an identical one. The mesh water pockets are my only complaint with this product, but considering the price and high reputation of the brand I was surprised that there were any issues at all. Overall I like this backpack very much, and will keep a close eye on the mesh pockets from now on. I would recommend this product to a friend, but not without warning about this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Holds everything, doesn't hurt your shoulders! I absolutely love this backpack!! It holds 2, 2" binders, three textbooks and gym clothes! It fits my macbook pro perfectly! August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific backpack I bought this for my husband who is blind for our traveling. There are plenty of pockets for all his electronics, jacket and cap. It makes it extremely easy to navigate airports and the plane without holding a bag. Can't wait to get our tandem bike. July 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent! I absolutely LOVE this backpack, I use it to hike, when I'm snowboaring, or even just to carry stuff when headed to work. So well made, has water bottle holsters on both sides, and the right amount of pockets. I also love that there is a firm back so I don't feel all the lumpy stuff against my back while hiking. absolutely recommend! January 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this backpack! My friend convinced me to look at a North Face backpack, and I fell in love with this one. It has everything! This backpack is super comfortable; it never strains my back. The straps are padded. I love the built-in laptop pouch and the stowable hip belt. I don't need the hip belt when I'm walking around my college campus, so I'm glad that I can hide it. I also like the stylish appearance. Overall, a great buy! August 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome quality Both of my kids have used every brand of back pack out there but the North Face brand is hands down the best. My kids have tossed them, dragged them, and stuffed them so full I thought the zipper would bust or the bag would rip....but they never have!! They are expensive but I have never had to replace one due to damage. I only replace after my kids want the newest model. September 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Backpack! I ordered this backpack to use to carry my laptop. I have had to travel quite a bit and the backpack has been great for this purpose, it is also very comfortable to carry. May 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for books I'm a college school and this backpack fits two textbooks, two folders, and two 3 subject 5 star notebooks. The only problem I have with this backpack is that it barely fits my 17 inch laptop. I fits in the backpack but it's a squeeze to put it in the laptop holder. Perfect backpack other than my one problem. February 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by looks like it's gonna work my daughter just had to have this bookbag for school this year. Lots of pockets and easy zipper opening. August 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag for traveling Bought this backpack for a trip overseas. The padding on the back part makes it comfortable to wear everywhere. The pocket inside is great for keeping a laptop/tablet safe, & the many other pockets come in handy. This is a great bag for traveling & camping! March 26, 2013
