          This bag is great, I am so glad I bought it. I had shoulder surgery a few years ago and sometimes have trouble holding weight on that side, but with this bag I was able to be comfortable going through several airports without any pain.

            This is a very cool backpack! But I'm am also a North Face lover :). My daughter found this one after searching online and decided it would be perfect. She's in high school and of course they haul around heavy binders, books and lap tops - all of which fit perfectly! It's also nice that you can adjust the width depending on how much you need to carry. She is quite petite - 5'1 95lbs - and this backpack doesn't "overwhelm" her body at all. She decided black would be best so it wouldn't show dirt, however, she has added some girlie "bling" to it to spice it up a bit. You can't go wrong with this one!

              I got this backpack for my daughter to use for school. She typically carries a lot of books and we needed one that fit her frame and still had lots of cool features. Love the padded shoulder straps designed for a girl! I just hope it holds up.

                      I'm a college student and I use it for class everyday. It's wonderful and a huge improvement from previous (and much loved North Face) backpack. So much more comfortable and better support for my back!

                      Using it daily for grad school. I have broad shoulders so perhaps should have got the men's? The straps I think would not be comfortable for long distances. An otherwise excellent product with all the compartments you need.

                              The North Face Recon Backpack is water-resistant at best. To ensure dryness of your pack, we would recommend a raincover for the backpack.
