Very satisfied with purchase
I bought this b-pack after checking it out at the north face store but obviously purchased it at Altrec for the generous savings. The bag is made of high quality material and has a lot of compartments to store away different items. The front and side mesh compartments are great for water. The zippers might be tricky to unzip at first but once you get used to it, you'll appreciate the flap that covers the zipper line. There is also a laptop compartment to protect your prized item. Also, the support and cushion for your back are awesome. Overall, a great purchase!

I can put everything in it, all my books, water bottle, snack and even my make up bag ;). I can wear it everywhere too. I wear it to school, hiking and short road trip. Very convenience :)

The north face Recon backpack
I bought this back pack right before school started in August. The shipping was fast and efficient! Just what I needed! I've only had the back pack for about 4 months now but i use it for EVERYTHING and it holds up great! Its has three main chambers which make it extremely convenient. Including the front chamber is netted and open which makes it easy to put stuff in there and take it out. I recommend this product 100%!
