Why We Like The Recon 30L Backpack

The trip to campus is an adventure all on its own, so we travel with the Recon 30L Backpack in tow. This one massive pack has enough space to get us from 7:30 economics to our dreaded night class without taking a trip back to the car. Not only is the main compartment large enough for textbooks, snacks, a sweatshirt, and all our chargers, but there's also a separate stash made just for keeping our computer safe and sound. Still doesn't sound like enough space? Pockets and daisy chains cover the outside of the pack, so nothing gets left behind.

Great pack for busy mom's on the go

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had been searching for a multi-use backpack for day to day use as well as long weekends. It has worked out wonderfully, there are a ton of pockets for storage, it is light weight, holds two water bottles and easy to organize. I use it to help keep my kids organized for different events as well as my purse when needed.

I would buy this product again!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love how spacious this backpack is! There is always room for something else and the pockets on the outside are big enough for large size water bottles.

Perfect high school and college backpack

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Exactly what we wanted! Enough room for all the books and computer, but not bulky or droopy.

Amazing backpack and super cute!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great backpack with lots of space. I'm currently using it for school and really like it. The color is super pretty. Only bad thing about this backpack and any backpack from north face that I've noticed is they're all super heavy.

Smaller than expected

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this backpack to replace my other travel backpack. I do like the look of the bag, but it is smaller than I thought it would be & It does not sit upright due to its shape. I did read that in other review, so that's on me, but I didn't realize how much that would actually annoy me. It does fit nicely under the seat of a plane with a little extra room to stretch out a leg if needed, so that was nice. Ultimately, I'm back to looking for another backpack for travel.

The Perfect Blend of Style and Functionality

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love my backpack! The style is beautiful, the color is beautiful and it's perfect for travel. The cloth pattern in the front adds an elegant, feminine touch which I love. It's comfortable, functional, durable, and stylish. I got it for my birthday and couldn't wish for a better gift. With a spacious main compartment and multiple pockets, organization is easy. I love the dedicated laptop sleeve, which keeps my device secure and easily accessible. Plus, the front compartment is perfect for storing smaller items like my keys, wallet, iPhone and sunglasses. It's a really versatile backpack and it shines! My backpack gets many compliments :)
