    Type A personality.

    Type A personalities are naturally drawn to the organization and functionality of The North Face's Recon 31L Backpack. With enough space to fit text books, notebooks, a laptop, tablet, and more, you are always prepared to have a successful day on campus. Equipped with a FlexVent suspension system and injection-molded shoulder straps, you get comfortable support when your backpack is fully loaded during finals week while the mesh panel helps the back of your t-shirt to stay dry as you pace in front of the testing hall. Soft fleece lines the inside of the laptop, tablet, and sunglasses pocket to protect your valuables, the internal organizer in the front pocket neatly stores your pens, calculator, and snacks, and the newly added front stash pocket gives you easy access to your hoodie or cell phone.

    A truly awesome backpack as an EDC

      I looked at hundreds of backpacks, trying to find the ideal backpack. Here is what I'll say — there is no one ideal backpack that works universally for every one. That's why there are a zillion backpacks. What makes it ideal depends on your needs. I had originally purchased this backpack after months of research and also because a friend of mine had one and he let me try it. However, I ended up returning it for another backpack I found quite by accident. There are 2 main reasons why I returned this backpack (most reluctantly): I needed something a little bigger (I carry books, my laptop and all sorts of peripherals, and wanted some extra space for a few clothes). Two, I wanted a few more pockets. This is truly a great backpack — feels great on the back (super comfortable), and is amazingly well-made. I may just end up getting this backpack again in the future as an EDC. If I had all the money in the world, I'd keep both backpacks.

      are the zippers black or grey?

      Hey Angela! So it depends on which color of the pack you buy. It appears that on every color except TNF Black and TNF Dark Grey, the zippers are gray. But on those two colors, the zippers are black. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
