Just what I was looking for!

I have pretty much every bag that REI sells--I have a real nerdy problem with bags--I love them! As many as I have, I felt like I needed a bag that could serve me better as a grad student, commuting all over Boston. This bag wins. First of all, there are two different styles of this bag: regular and womans. I thought this was just a gimmick, but after examining both in REI, I realized that the womans style is actually legit. The straps contour around the bust and have a softer padding. Also, the womans bag is slightly shorter so that it ends above your bottom (the regular version rested in the middle of my bottom and was very uncomfortable). The womans version is also quite a bit lighter. That being said, I don't feel as though I am getting cheaper quality or loosing out on precious space. I adore the front mesh pocket--I keep my lunch in there. I also love the fact that you can store the suspension cords when not in use, so you don't have a bunch of straps hanging all over you. The laptop compartment is great--I still put my computer in a laptop sleeve, just to be safe. Love the color--got the purple and gray one. LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. I plan to use this bag for school, work and commuting.

Perfect for school commute

I commute on the bus to grad school daily with this pack. I tried on just about every pack at REI and couldn't find one that was comfortable, roomy enough, and had a well padded laptop pocket. Just as I was about to give up I found this pack and it has been perfect for my needs. The laptop pocket is so well padded (especially on the bottom) and snug that I usually don't use my sleeve. The shoulder straps and back padding make it comfortable even loaded with laptop and huge books, and all the pockets make it easy to find what I'm looking for. There are three zippered pockets but the pictures don't show that the middle one has several pockets within it for organizing small items. And finally, love the two outside pockets-- I can keep a water bottle and tea cup with me. It's probably not the best pack for long hikes, as the waist strap is pretty minimal, but for shorter distances it's fine. Only wish it came in other medium or dark colors besides magenta and black.

Perfect backpack!

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!

The last backpack I will ever buy

I love this bag. I bought it for going back to college. I also like to go hiking and love the fact that it will do double duty. I'm an accounting and bookkeeping major and this bag is large enough to hold all of my books plus a laptop an have some extra room. I got the pink one and I love the bright color. Good quality and I hope that this bag lasts me forever!!

Excellent backpack for carrying 13

I bought this backpack to carry my 13" work PC. It is well-padded to protect the PC, the PC fits snugly, and there's plenty of room to carry papers, books, etc. as well as the usual purse and other accessories. The pack's straps are also well-padded and comfortable. What I like best is the excellent fit -- it sits nicely on my back, unlike the wider mens' packs. And I love the color!

Colors Not Quite The Same

I loved this book bag online, however, the colors are completely different in person. The blue is much darker, more like a royal blue. The pink and green colors are also much more vibrant, almost like neon in color. Even though I was a bit disappointed when I opened it, it is growing on me. Plus, I've gotten several compliments on it. I just wish the colors would have been more accurate.

Love it!

Best backpack I've ever purchased. Being a Nursing student I carry a ton of books along with my lap top, and I don't feel any weight on my back. It has tons of pockets and keeps me organized. No regrets searching high and low for this particular backpack in stores, since everywhere seemed to be sold out. Worth it!!
Stjj at The North Face on 01/22/2014

Beautifully made......

I bought this for my future daughter in law for college and she loves it. Tons of room and pockets with well padded back and straps. She will use this for school and hiking Montana for many years to come. I've always had great luck with The North Face products... Still my favorite brand!!

A great backpack

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.

Backpack was a gift

I purchased this Women's Recon Backpack for my third daughter who will graduate college and is moving on to graduate school this year. She has consistently used "hand me down" backpacks but it was time for her own choice. She LOVES it.

Negative Reviews:

Backcountry is great, however, the color of the product advertised was not. We ordered what appeared to be a bright pink color and ended up with more of a grey pink. The image on the computer is very deceiving, please update the image.
