Racking up 100,000 miles a year with a bag full of computers and associated bits and pieces makes one a very fussy customer when it comes to choosing luggage. I'd been previously using a Patagonia messenger bag which was great but really starting to play havoc with my shoulder. On a recommendation from my wife (who has similar travel schedules) I decided to switch to the Recon. So far I have done 2 trips to Europe and numerous US destinations and am completely satisfied with the bag. My 13" MacBook Air rides perfectly in the back sleeve with room for magazines and an iPad comfortably in beside it. The front section is big enough and has enough useful pockets without being over-encumbered with useless nooks & crannies. Carrying the bag, even long distances, is very comfortable and the weight distributes nicely across both shoulders. Really, my only complaint is the number of non-removable straps and harnesses. There are ones for the waist and chest plus a pair for tightening the sides not unlike a traditional hiking backpack. Unfortunately these tend to hang down and get caught on things, particularly in the tight airplane cabins of today. Other than that, this is a product I would highly recommend to the road warrior.

I'd also recommend: Patagonia

Great, functional backpack The North Face Recon is a sharp looking backpack. It has great back padding and a stiff frame sheet support, and carries loads well. The straps are thin, cushioned, and comfortable. The cinch straps help tighten down the load. The organizer pocket is laid out well, and the pocket itself has decent capacity. For now I'm putting extra magazines in the laptop sleeve, as I need to get a smaller/lighter laptop... The fabric is durable and the zippers are smooth. The bottom is extra durable. The pack also seems to be decently water resistant, I walked into work when it was raining the other day, so about 5 minutes from car to door, and the innards were still dry. The pack seems very functional, comfortable to carry, it is expandable if you need it but you can also pack it lighter. Overall I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

Bought this for my husband to replace an older North Face backpack. he has been very happy with it so far, especially the padding and strap across the chest, which he says really helps relieve back pain. It could be a tad bigger but the pockets are organized well for his needs.

The bag is well made and stylish. My only complaint is the main pocket is one big pocket with a sleeve for the laptop. Would be nicer if there was more divided pocket in the main one for papers/books, and kept the laptop separate. Also, it is a little tight on large shoulders. Have to keep the straps longer to wear comfortably.

It is a great work bag. The only thing is it needs cushion at the bottom for the laptop. Very comfortable to carry. Great quality! Zappos is excellent!
