Women’s Recon Backpack.

The women’s 31-litre Recon is an iconic backpack from The North Face, designed for quick-gear access, hauling comfort and year-over-year durability. It features a women’s specific FlexVent™ suspension system and custom injection-moulded straps, shaped to support the shoulders. A slightly shorter, airy mesh back panel has a supportive spine channel for comfort. This pack's generously sized rear compartment has a fleece-lined 15” laptop sleeve that’s padded and doubles a hydration port. Its front compartment features a fleece-lined tablet sleeve along with multiple zippered, slit, and mesh pockets for phones, pens and books. The front of the Recon has a fleece-lined sunglass pocket and comes with a front stretch mesh pocket. Side compression straps allow for a more streamlined ride, a removable waist belt adds stability on bike commutes, and a sternum strap with a whistle helps make the Recon backpack suitable for the occasional day-hike.
