The Recon Laptop Backpack is one of North Face's most popular and biggest general utility laptop backpacks. Featuring a spacious 30-liter 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 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 main compartment is a great space for bigger items such as a binder, textbooks, clothes, lunchbox, etc. The secondary compartment serves to organise all your gear with an organisation panel, zip pockets, padded device pockets - whether that is stationery, cables, peripherals, or anything small and loose. It also features a lightly padded tablet sleeve. The top 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 Nylon and polyester and is reinforced at the base with a durable and heavier duty nylon. 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-molded adjustable shoulder straps and a padded air-mesh back panel with a center 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. For the women's version, the back panel and shoulder straps have been specifically designed to fit most female silhouettes better. 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.
