Great product for day hiking
Bought this backpack for my wife and she loves it! It well made, with lots of pockets and very light. I have a Recon men size and this one is a little smaller. But it is capable to hold all you need for a day hiking. We will use it to our Spain trip. The North Face product quality is amazing! I recommend it to all!

Great Backpack
I purchased this backpack for my walking commute (about 10 blocks) to work. This backpack is has a great design for women and a significant amount of padding which provides great support. The large pocket has enough room to allow for my lunch, shoes, wallet, and work folders. The medium pocket fits all of my supplies (trains schedule, pens, kleenex, etc.). It's nice to have the front pouch to toss things in quickly or have easy access to. There is a small zipper pouch between that is not very deep, which I have found to be perfect for things like your bus/train pass. Overall I am very pleased with the design of this backpack. They have thought of everything a women would like/need in a backpack. I debated between this backpack and the women's surge and am glad I went this route due to the pocket design.

Good Pick
This backpack is super comfortable and looks nice. LOTS OF SPACE I had to duct tape parts of the bag in the inside to make it look smaller cause it's fricken HUGEEE. I have a small torso so it makes me look like a turtle. I wish it was smaller... But it's still a cool bag. I bought the Squid Red bag but it doesn't look like the one in the picture... The pink is super bright coral, I'm fine with that, but the maroon color is more of a brownish purple red...

Great Backpack
I bought this backpack after shopping around and trying on many other brands and styles. The fit is designed for a woman and felt very comfortable on me. I used this backpack as a travel daypack for a trip to Alaska and it worked out well. I was able to use it as a "personal" carry-on item on the airlines, which was important to me.
