I've been carrying an all black North Face Back pack for 8 years. I went to college with it, vacationed with it, exercised with it, and began my career with it. I recently returned to The North Face Online to make a second pack purchase not because I need a new pack, but because I felt 8 years of full-time service deserved a retirement.

I chose an all black Recon. I really like the grey with green pack, but because I use it for work, I felt the all black look was a better fit in my work environment.

The large pouch has improved over 8 years, you can either slide a full size 17" laptop (with extended battery) in the tight fitting sleeve, or leave it loose. Aside from my padfolio, this large pouch could stand to carry a lot more.

The mid size pouch is perfect for Pens, electronic devices like a Kindle, digital camera, and the like.

The small top pouch is great for an ipod and small snacks.

I typically use the outer area for drinks rather than the actual drink holders on the side.

The shoulder straps and side of the pack against your back are padded and comfortable as usual, no matter how much I stuff in to it.

Aside from work, I use this pack when cycling, going to the gym, weekend trips out of town, and on vacation as my carry on.

Last month we went on a cruise and I stuffed all of my paperwork, electronics, toiletries, a bottle of wine, and a snorkeling mask and snorkel in to my pack.

These packs are well constructed for all purposes, long lasting, and stylish. I receive frequent compliments on my previous and current North Face pack.

If I had to voice a less positive comment it would be regarding all of the straps. There is a chest strap and waist strap that I haven't had a need for. Personally I remove them and all is well in the world. Although there is a neat whistle on the chest strap fastener.

I would highly recommend The North Face packs. As far as I'm concerned if you mention a pack, I assume you're talking about The North Face backpacks.

I was a Recon evangelist having taken this backpack as my only form of luggage across the country, to Europe and South America. It was one of the most bombproof pieces of gear I had ever owned. Recently it was stolen from my vehicle and I ordered a new one with much excitement and anticipation. When it arrived I compared it to my sisters who had the same one I used to. This is where disappointed set in strong. No more drawstring side pocket, no more straps on the bottom to hold jackets or sleeping pads, no more zipper pocket on the inside of the big pocket, the laptop sleeve is not even across the top making it hard to get contents out if you??re not reaching in from the right direction, no more plastic d-rings or knife pocket on the front straps, the front stow pocket??s buckle is now affixed to the front of the backpack reducing capacity and making it harder to buckle. The only change that I see as an improvement is a zippered pocket in the second largest compartment. I immediately searched Recons on eBay and other sites to try and find one like I had bought years ago and it looks as if these changes have been gradual as there are many models between my original and the current, however it seems as though each version has become cheaper and has sacrificed the exact reasons, as small as they may be, that the Recon 5 years ago was a bombproof piece of outdoor or traveling gear that had huge value. I can only hope that this helps to generate discussions to build a better pack like before. Unfortunately, anyone that has bought this pack in the past few years doesn??t know what he or she is missing. If these changes were to be fixed I would certainly become an evangelist again, until then I will remain disappointed and return my new Recon.

Disappointed

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

My old recon was finally falling apart so I convinced my mom to buy me a new one for school. We sent it back because it was SO much smaller. It was also heavier when it was empty. Why fix it if it's not broken!! The new style/size didn't fit all of my books and lunch. I'll have to shop other brands now. Frustrating....

    Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

    I am a student and i have had this bag for 5 years. I got it before i started 6th grade and now i'm about to become a sophomore. The bag has held up perfectly and it shows no sign of wearing out. It fits all of my books, folders, binders, and pencils just fine with room for other little things. So space isn't a problem. I have also used this bag for travel and it fits a couple pairs of clothes and is very easy for air plane travel. This bag is also good for hikes because it has so much room. The front pouch is very useful as i use it frequently. Overall this is the perfect bag for, a student, traveler, hiker, adventurer, and for city traveling. I highly recommend this backpack!

      Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

      I've had this same pack for awhile now. And let me just tell you, I commute everywhere with it, even packed full it's comfortable, I mountain bike pretty hardcore, SO PERFECT In the Laptop compartment it has a clip perfect for a camel H2O pack. It's like it's meant to be, never punctured or anything for me. And I allso have a 17inch laptop, first bag I've ever owned that works with it comfortable. It has so many bells and whistles it's unbelievable. All of the clips and zippers are really high quality and don't seem to be breaking or wearing hard anytime soon. None of the miscellaneous strings and anything ever get caught up and In anywhere, I just wish they had a restraint for the waist strap. Because sometimes that gets annoying I resorted to zip ties. And it's as waterproof as a tortoise shell, I mean like NO water could ever penetrate this thing from the front of it at least. And it's really breathable, also. It's a really non-fatiguing pack, too! If you ever want a pack that'll live throughout you're long life. And still have some life in it. This is tho one.
      Good day to you all.

      Very Nice Backpack

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

      I am very pleased with this backpack. I needed a new backpack that would hold my laptop next year as I am starting college. This backpack does a great job of this. The only downfalls I have noticed are that the zippers are a little tricky to use but that could stop being a problem the more I use it! Overall I love the backpack and I am very glad I made the purchase

      Excellent Backpack & A Great Value

      By 

      from North Augusta, SC

      Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

      I purchased this backpack as a replacement for a backpack that was a gift from work. That backpack lasted approximately 2 years. It was primarily used for transporting a 13-inch macbook Pro, an iPad, assorted books, an iPod, computer cables, a number of papers and assorted office supplies. I??ve had my Recon for over a month now and have used it to carry a similar load for routine media support work at our church with no problems, The layout of the Recon actually made the organization of my equipment, books, and other equipment and supplies very intuitive, the equipment was very easy to access after loading out the pack. I recently went on a Youth Ski Trip and used my Recon to carry not only my normal gear but also ski gear: goggles, gloves, face gators & hats, etc??_ I was carrying 2 sets of each piece of equipment, my equipment and a set for use by one of our youth. The pack performed flawlessly. The water bottle pockets are deep enough to hold my water bottles so they don??t fall out, which wasn??t the case with my previous pack. The laptop sleeve holds my laptop very securely, but its still very accessible when I need it. The tablet sleeve is a very nice feature that I??ve come to enjoy, and it holds my iPad in it??s crying case with no problem. When I have my laptop & iPad loaded in the main compartment I still have plenty of room to carry my books and papers without feeling like I??ve overfilled the pack. The second compartment is also very functional and I have been very impressed with the layout of the organizational pockets built into this compartment. Again this compartment has made organizing and accessing my equipment and supplies very easy. Overall this pack has exceeded my expectations.??

      Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

      After 5 years with my old NF backpack, it was time to get a new one. They no longer carried my old one, but this one is the same great quality, but with a few more bells and whistles. Perfect size for school and carry-on travel for plane. Looking forward to 5 more good years.

        • Hiking

        Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

        This backpack is everything I was looking for. It holds my 32oz water bottle securely, my 17" laptop (a little snug, but it works!), an extra pair of shoes, and all my other stuff that I find myself needing on a daily basis. I use it mostly for commuting/school, but have also taken it on day hikes and it's so comfortable, even when I have it filled to the brim. I also use this backpack while a passenger on my partner's motorcycle, and I like to think the bright yellow color draws more attention to us so that other drivers take more notice.

        And I know it doesn't say that it's waterproof, but I got caught i n a huge Texas summer storm recently while waiting for the bus, and everything inside was dry, dry, dry. That was a wonderful surprise.

              I've had my North Face Recon backpack for more than ten years and it's still going strong with near-daily use. It's been filled with textbooks, hiking gear, food from the grocery store, and lots more. It's been shoved in overhead compartments, thrown in the trunks of many cars, and set down in nature more times that I can count.

              I just logged on to the site to see if they still made it in case I ever need a new one -- glad to see they do, with very minor changes! I doubt I'll need a replacement in the next ten years, but happy to see it's available. I love, love, love my NF recon. Highly recommended. Great size, great quality. All around awesome.

                I've had this backpack since 2008. Its my Go To. Take it with me to school every day and now I bring it to work with me. I bring it hiking and have even skied with it a few times. Its built real well. TNF doesn't mess around. I'm not sure if its water-proof but I've never had a problem with things getting wet. only 2 things have broken over the life of the pack. The zipper on the small pocket on the front and one of the plastic tightening things for the shoulder straps (nothing a zip tie couldn't fix). Overall extremely happy with the quality of this pack.

                This is my 3rd Recon. The first one I used for many years for school then work. I sent it to North Face for a replacement zipper. I bought the second one to use while the first one was being fixed. I still carry the first one and gave husband the the 2nd. He eventually gave it son for college. After a year with a different pack husband had to have another recon. Love the new laptop/tablet sleeve.

                  Comments about The North Face Recon Backpack:

                  Today I had to retire by recon pack of 5 years. I went to the store to try to get them to send it out for warranty, because I started to come apart at one of the seems. They instead offered just to replace it, because the manager deemed it probably unfixable and my mom made me accept. I cried as I was walking away with the new pack ( it just happend to be another recon ;-) ). That pack has survived for 5 years not only carries about 20 lb pounds a day to and from school, but any other adventure I have been on. I have climbed up 23 of New york's 46ers, overnight horse back riding trips, canoe and kayak trips, rock climbing, mountain biking, any airplane trip, sailing in Thailand, mission trips, 3+ day cancer walks, scuba diving trips, snowboarding out of helicopters and anything else you could imagine. It was really sad leaving it behind in that store! i wouldn't have if it didn't have a hole, bid enough for my books to start falling through

                      Though they have made some minor changes to the pack since I received mine, about 7 years ago when I was about to go off to college, the general structure is the same. It has gone through carrying heavy books and laptops to and from classes, traveling abroad, hiking, etc. I have basically "put it through the wringer". All the zippers still function properly, the material hasn't torn or have holes, all of the snap buckles still function, and I couldn't be happier with it, EXCEPT I want a new backpack and can't come up with a valid reason to buy another??_..

                      This pack is great. plenty of storage, comfortable and well made. The only feature that could be improved is the location of the water bottle holders on each side. It is very difficult to reach back and grab a bottle out of the holder with the pack still on. You almost have to take the back pack off to pull the bottles out of the holders.

                      I love the new Recon backpack that I ordered from North Face. It is the perfect size to accommodate all of my school materials and has lots of nifty pockets to hold a laptop, water bottle, wallet, and books. When I received the backpack, I found a tag saying that it is certified as a healthy option for your back, although with the amount I carry, I'm sure anything will help my back. I love the simplistic and sophisticated appearance of the bag. However, it is also durable and will be a fitting option to bring for any of my outdoor trips. So glad I choose this North Face brand backpack!

                      When initially purchasing this pack I was concerned it might have been a bit too large from what I saw in the pictures. I was looking for something I could carry everyday in college, while still being able to take it outdoors and abuse it. Upon opening the box, I was very surprised by the packs compactness. It's ideally sized for school, with compartments for everything you would need. The first weekend I had it, it was tested. I was on a trip to Asheville, NC where it saw many elements from pouring rain to snow and dirt. It performed perfectly the entire week I was there, hiking and backpacking through the mountains. It was extremely comfortable to wear all day long. Much more comfortable than the packs I was issued in the military. This is a great product for anyone who needs an everyday pack capable of a variety of feats. Excellent purchase!

                      This back pack is not only stylish, it is also very comfortable. The padding in the back adds support while walking and helps with heavy stress on your back. This wonderful backpack can hold a lot too. It's very spacious. Three pairs of shoes fit into the main pocket with out struggle. The mesh pouch on the front allows for an easy place to put a snack. The straps buckle around your body to help with mobility while carrying a heavy load and let me tell you, it helps! Also if you are a laptop user, there is a perfect and padded laptop holder inside the main pocket. The other pocket for holding pens or other utensils is exactly was you need it to be, sections, organizers and even more pockets! This is the second northface backpack I have bought and there isn't a single thing I dislike about them. I feel confident and cool wearing it and it gets every job I need done. I would invest in a northface backpack any day of the week. Especially the recon.

                      One thing I felt about this backpack that I haven't felt on other backpacks is the comfort when you use it, it feels so soft an light and you can put lots of things in it. You can even put a sweater in the "little net bag". I really enjoy this bag !

                      I bought this backpack for college, but I haven't used it yet. It seems spacious enough to hold a few books and a laptop. Seems a lot more durable than the previous High Sierra backpacks I've owned. Happy with the purchase so far.

                        I've had this backpack for over 10 years and it amazes me that it still doesn't show any kind of wear. I use it as my carry on every time I fly, I take it on day hikes in the mountains to carry lunch and extra clothes, plus water bottles and emergency gear. I use it snow skiing to carry extra layers, goggles, sunscreen, water, snacks, boots, and head gear. It's extremely versatile and as I said, it will last your forever. Mine still looks awesome, no fraying threads or ripping fabric anywhere, even at the points where you would expect it like where the shoulder straps are sewn to the top of the bag, and I have carried very heavy loads, especially as a carry on when I fly (heavy laptop + power supply, hardback books, snacks, toiletry kit, etc etc). I will always buy North Face after seeing how durable these backpacks are. I'm very impressed.
