The perfect blend of technical features and stylish design.

great pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great backpack for everyday use to long distance travel to hiking. It fits everything you need if you know how to pack well, there are several compartments that have multiple smaller pockets or sleeves for organization. Durable construction and my favorite feature is that it is made to put the weight comfortably on my shoulders and not the lower back.

Bag of Tricks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Recon is a pretty swell bag. We recently picked up a newer one since the old one started to show its age... 7 years later!! Instead of trashin' the old one, we donated it. I'd say it still has plenty of life left in it, the lady just wanted something a bit more colorful. For the price (especially when they go on sale, like ALL the time) they are a great buy. Snag one, be happy, take it with you anywhere.
