The Recon Laptop Backpack is one of North Face's most popular and most 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 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 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 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.
“Comfortable and can pack a lot of stuff. This bag can fit a lot for commuters who need to fit more than just a laptop. Weight distribution is great even when the bag is loaded a lot of stuff. Straps are very comfortable. Zippers are sturdy and smooth to zip and unzip. Only downside is my water bottle slips out of the side pockets easily so i had to keep it inside the bag instead.”
“Keeps getting better and better. I'm now on my third north face backpack for 15" laptop. First was stolen, second has lasted 8 years under extensive yearly travel around the globe. Will last someone else another 10+ years when i sell it. I couldn't resist the upgraded version at the discount price offered. North face just keep getting better to suit modern day needs. This is a fantastic backpack that is even better for ipads + laptop + cords & phone, and everything else i carry in it for my travels. So well made. Tough and very practical. Many thanks north face and rushfaster.”
“Great backpack for Uni students ! Best student backpack i've ever own. I love the comfortable straps and ventilated back panel and tons of space and very 'heavy duty'. I know it's gonna last for many years.”
“Good all round bag. I got this bag for work/overnight stay/carry on all rounder. Very impressed with the quality and organization pocket.”
“Great for uni. Carries all my stuff - food, water bottle, laptop and stationary. Love it.”
“Great for everyday uses. Great bag with lots of compartment.”
“Great for travelling. Purchased as a present for father's day. Love the compartments and storage options. Looks versatile and hard wearing, and appears to be perfect for our next overseas travel adventure!”
“Great everyday or light overnight bag. .”
“Great "grey man" or covert urban pack. For when you want a good goldilocks sized everyday carry bag that is made of enough quality materials to be near tactical but no molle or other military garbage. Rides good, outer pocket could of been more square at the bottom to more appropriately fit a folded jacket/jumper but otherwise great.”
“Great quality. .”
