Hard-Wearing North Face Bag
The dependable North Face Recon Backpack is a versatile daily bag with plenty of storage space. Among the Recon’s notable features are a bright bike-light loop for increased visibility at night, twin side water bottle pockets, and front elastic straps for external gear storage.
Like all North Face packs, the Recon has a slew of excellent comfort features built in. The Recon Backpack, like the North Face Pivoter, features ergonomically designed shoulder straps and a cushioned air mesh back panel to ensure that the pack can be worn comfortably for extended periods.
Importantly, the North Face Recon Backpack is built to last from sturdy 500D Cordura. Additionally, the interior of the Recon is equipped with a durable nylon liner for extra protection. Furthermore, The North Face’s products are covered by a Lifetime Product Warranty, which guarantees that they are free of material and manufacturing flaws.
TNF’s hard-wearing Recon Backpack is a great unisex option with a tough shell exterior. In contrast to a similarly priced North Face option, such as the North Face Surge, the Recon Backpack doesn’t quite match it in terms of storage volume, however, on the comfort and durability front it measures up well. In addition, the Recon’s laptop and tablet sleeves are well-padded and easily accessible.
