Blake wrote a review of The North Face Recon Backpack - 1850 cu in. on October 21, 2002
I will never use anything besides a North Face backpack from now on. The Recon backpack is great in every aspect. The support it provides for your back allows you to stuff it full without any strain. There are nice pockets to store all of your materials. Additionally, the outside mesh pockets allow for much extra storage--anything from a helmet to a sweater. It's a must buy--worth the money.
