The Recon Laptop Backpack is one of North Face's most popular and biggest general utility laptop backpacks. Featuring a spacious 31-litre volume, exhibiting abundant organisation capabilities, ensuring durability and protection whilst providing ample support and comfort - the Recon Laptop Backpack is a technical, durable and organisational powerhouse of a bag.

The main compartment of the Recon Laptop Backpack features a floating, fleece-lined and padded laptop sleeve that houses up to a 16" laptop and sits well above the base of the bag to protect it from drop impacts, it also serves as a hydration bladder sleeve that allows drinking access via the tube port at the top (bladder and tube not included). The secondary compartment serves to organise all your gear with an organisation panel, zip pockets, fleece-lined pockets - whether that is stationery, cables, peripherals or anything small and loose. It also features a fleece-lined tablet sleeve. The front zippered compartment is fleece lined to stash small valuables such as a phone or sunglasses. Two mesh side stash pockets can be used for water bottles or other such sized items. An open front stash pocket is available for quick access. Daisy chain webbing is available for attachments or accessories.

The Recon Laptop Backpack is constructed with a durable 420D Nylon and reinforced with a 1680D Ballistic Nylon at the base. It comes with 360-degree reflective detailing and a bike attachment loop to ensure your visibility at night. For heavy or longer travels, the Recon supports your carry with North Face's FlexVent suspension system that features a compression moulded adjustable shoulder straps and a padded air-mesh back panel with a centre airflow channel for maximum support and ventilation. The FlexVent shoulder straps create innovative flex zones that alleviate clavicle hot spots, pressure-point strain and neck pain. A sternum and hip strap offer added stability and load control and the sternum strap also doubles as a whistle. Compression straps are also available to provide a more compact fit, adding to load control and stability. All North Face bags come with accreditation from the American Chiropractic Association certifying that they've been engineered to carry the heaviest of loads.
