The North Face Recon Backpack


The North Face Recon Backpack is a trustworthy pack with plenty of upgrades. Designed for office or school and not afraid of the weekend adventure, the FlexVent suspension drops weight while increasing durability for a comfortable carry that has been certified by the American Chiropractic Association.

The front panel focuses on organization from the fleece lined-tablet sleeve to spots for cables, phone, pens or styluses.
