The Women's Recon Laptop Backpack is the female-oriented version of the Recon Backpack - one of North Face's 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 Women's Recon Laptop Backpack is a technical, durable and organisational powerhouse of a bag.
The main compartment of the Women's Recon Laptop Backpack features a floating, fleece-lined and padded laptop sleeve that houses up to a 15" 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 a 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 Women's 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 women-specific FlexVent™ suspension system comprising of custom injection-moulded shoulder straps, a padded mesh back panel with a spine channel that are all specifically shaped for an ergonomic, female fit and a wicking lumbar panel 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.
“Bought this to help back pain and it's working . This is my first 'proper' backpack - i've never spent time researching which bag to buy before, until back pain meant i had to. I'm glad i chose this one because it really distributes the weight well. It barely feels like it's even there! I love it.”
“Good bag. Good bag, big enough to fit everything i need and sturdy construction. Only wish the elastic along the top of the mesh pockets was tighter, but otherwise a great buy.”
“So comfy. A seriously comfy backpack with great features. Worth the money.”
“Good fitting backpack. Really liked the fast and reliable service from rushfaster, item was as described. Also most impressed that a return to sender address label was supplied if there was a need to return the item, no quibbles. Fantastic!”
“Great bag! . I\'ve been using this bag to run to and from work and it\'s been great! It\'s a little on the large size, but that\'s because of my height and has nothing to do with the bag, so if you wanted something a bit small i would check your measurements. A bunch of compartments means i knew exactly where everything is when i want it - super handy! All in all a fantastic bag from a fantastic supplier.”
“Great all rounder bag. Heaps of room and weight is spread out nicely when wearing it. Lots of compartments. Great bag for uni. Great colour. Basically a great bag and sure to last.”
“Great backpack. After a shoulder injury i was after something that would fit all my uni stuff and that i would be able to carry without hurting my back or shoulders. This fits the brief perfectly!”
“Good for travelling . .”
“Great durable and comfortable backpacks can exist! I'm so glad i spent a little extra to get this backpack. Northface have a pretty good reputation for the durability of their products, but on top of this i'm so super impressed by how comfortable this back pack is! I only have two small complaints. (1) the bag is a little narrow from the shoulder straps where they connect to the top of the bag - i have to have the straps adjusted exactly otherwise it chafes my neck (though this is likely because i have broad shoulders and a thicker than usual trapezius muscle for girl! ) (2) the straps seem to slip quite easily and don't lock well to a certain length - they're fine while walking or throwing the bag over your shoulder, but as i bought this bag specifically so i could run to/from work it's frustrating that i have to stop and adjust the straps periodically. Other than that it's great and i'm loving it!”
