      Comments about THE NORTH FACE Recon Daypack:

      I use this backpack daily to go to work, school, the library, and recreational activities. My macbook fits nicely into the inner, padded laptop pocket, as do several textbooks, which I place in the main part of the backpack. The backpack straps are padded so they are comfortable, which is an upgrade over the old Recon's straps. This version of the Recon packs in more pockets than previous models. North Face has always been good in this regard, even including a key holder. These inside pockets are plentiful and useful for organizing my zip lock bags filled with stationary items such as flag bookmarks, index cards, pens and markers (useful for the semester). Other items fit nicely inside such as a cell phone and its charger which I put into the inner zip pocket My favorite pocket is the outermost, small front zip pouch above the front outer netting. Here I place a few items that I want to be immediately accessible like gum. In the two outer, netted side pockets go my umbrella and contact solution. In the large, outmost, frontmost pocket, goes my lunch. When you leave your house at 7am and come back at 8pm, it is worth the price paid to have a bookbag like this because it provides me the ability for good organization. This bookbag is worth it if you have lots of things you carry with you. When I take the train, bus, my motor scooter, or bicycle, this bookbag makes my life easier. Plus, I love the color schemes available. If you need more space then get the next model up. The only change I would have made would be full padding for the entire bottom of the bookbag not just the bottom of the laptop pocket. I have a wrapped towel on the bottom instead. Still a job well done by The North Face.

      Comments about THE NORTH FACE Recon Daypack:

      I use this product for day hiking, commuting, as a carry-on in aircraft, and on a motorcycle. It's really nice all around. What I don't like is the build quality. I've had it about 4 years. The zipper pulls break (this design has been superseded since mine came out so it may be better), the buckles break, and the waist strap is narrow and not padded nor wide enough at the hips. Nevertheless, I would still buy it again based on the redesign of the zippers, the way it looks, and the comfort.

      The pack is smaller than we expected. However, my two sons have the same pack, in different colors, and it's working out for them for high school use.
