I was pleasantly surprised to find the color was even better in person, and that there were many little extra things on the backpack that they don't even advertise. I found a whistle and pockets that you can stash the waist belts in. The only downside was that I have found it hard to get things in and out quickly. But one my friends, who has the same one, said that it just takes some time to break it in, that it becomes more flexible as you use it. Overall, I am VERY happy with this backpack and would buy it again in the future.

Bag arrived with super fast, free shipping from sunny sports. However, when I received the Recon in the mail it was far too small. I don't mean the cargo size, as I can't vouch for that, but the bag as a whole is way too small. It looks like it would be a woman's bag...but it's even a little too small for my 5'6" girlfriend. I'm about 5'11" and when I put it on it left part of my lower back exposed....looked really awkward. The color was great, build quality is great, and it seemed like it could hold a decent amount of items....not great but not bad either. Long story short, I returned it and got the surge. I will say though, the back padding is GREAT on the recon. I read the other reviews on here and didn't hear anything about it being so short...so I thought I'd give you a heads up. If it was another 6-8 inches longer it would be perfect. Sunny sports was great to work with! Will do business again!

    I use this pack everyday to and from work since I travel via mass transit. It's great, comfortable, and fits everything i needed so far. It's also light and fits great since I'm a larger framed man.

    Very well built, back then people had jansport backpack and I've been using it for 2 years, I decided to upgrade and boy, the best decision ever! The stuff I carry to school now feel lighter than the jansport. This backpack is going to last me for a while.
