Comments about The North Face Recon Daypack:

Needed a new backpack for college, pricing was terrific,many colors to choose from. First drawback, found the zipper to be a little shy in length so you have to load in smaller items first towards front of bag in large compartment. Secondly, no padding for a laptop should you put it in there.

    Comments about The North Face Recon Daypack:

    I've owned many NorthFace backpacks and this one really caught my eye based on its simple yet elegant design and choice of colors. The Recon backpack has a fair amount of space and I use it regularly for school. However its capacity does pale in comparison to that of the Surge, which I also own.

    For its size I like the style of the Recon and it is easily my daily backpack, but when I have to carry multiple thick and heavy books on top of my notes and laptop, I prefer a larger bag.

      Comments about The North Face Recon Daypack:

      I had a Recon that lasted over 7 years of constant day-to-day use, and it would probably last a few more years! It started showing some wear, and it was time for a new one. The fact it comes in bright colors now, was the best selling feature for me. I am sure this one will last just as long as the last!

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
      Margaret R  my kid had version of this bag that held up through middle school and high school--and now it's time to find a new one, why argue with success? The older version could handle day after day of abuse and carting 50+ lbs of books. I hope this one can too.
      Shopper  On the Coffee colored Recon, is the interior Gray or Champagne colored?
      cindy s  I assume the interior is in grey.
      Shopper  Is this backpack waterproof?
      cindy s  The North Face Recon Daypack is not waterproof.
