Very good if somewhat expensive Day Pack
I've had the recon for a few years now (older model, but pretty much the same thing). It has held up very well and has great features. The front pouch is useful for just tossing in frequently accessed items. Stow-away hip belt is great for when you need it and nice to be able to tuck it away when you don't. All seems, zippers, etc seem to hold up very well with no problems encountered so far. Pouch in main pocket holds my laptop perfectly. I have yet to use it with my hydration bladder. The only negative that I can think of is the price is a bit high for what many use as a kids daypack, but this can be used for much more!
