Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product meets all needs I purchased this bag to serve as my diaper bag/beach tote/carry all. I pack my kids diapers, juice boxes, and extra clothes when we go to a baseball game or to the park. It is large enough to fit all I need to carry yet lightweight and comfortable enough to not load me down while I carry my child. I am very happy with the quality construction and the many compartments. The outside mesh compartment is very handy for things I need to get quickly such as tissues, sunscreen, and hand sanitizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! Bought this about 5 years ago and I use it heavily everyday and pretty much take it with me everywhere. I've never had a problem with it. I feel like I could use it for another 5-7 years before it would be good to replace it. Recently the zipper got stuck on the zipper overlay and I tried to cut it to slide the zipper off but accidently cut the zipper as well. Rather than getting it fixed, I'm going to buy the exact same backpack April 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality I bought a black north face recon two years ago and I couldnt have asked for a better back pack. It is very durable with undeniably great quality. It was very worth the money I spent on it. I use it for school, camping, and hiking. I love this recon so much I am getting another one in a prettier color. I highly recommend this backpack even though it might be a little expensive. March 31, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ripped in a week I love the style of the backpack. However, lining on straps ripped within the first week of using the backpack. And one of the water bottle holders also ripped within the first week. Returning when I get the chance to go home. Really disappointed with north face here I usually think they're better quality based on their jackets. February 28, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great backpack for school I am currently using this backpack for school, and its great.It fits all of my books and homework.Also the black color looks really good. :) August 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Backpack I use this backpack for day trips to parks and local hiking trails. Works well for carrying an extra fleece or two, water botles and snacks for the kids. July 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly functional backpack! This is one of the most useful backpacks that I have owned. It is very well built, and has a variety of pockets for organization. While it does have padding for your laptop, it isn't too heavy, and for anyone that is a plus. Incidentally, ended up in a rainstorm, and the rain just beaded up and ran off. I was surprised, as there wasn't an indication that it was waterproof, and probably isn't if submerged -- but nothing on the inside got wet including my wallet and cell phone. High quality product, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! June 26, 2012
