The North Face Recon
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $109
I like the front load style. I like that it's made for a woman's frame. I am a day hiker and it is well suited for this.
- Well built
- Front load style
- Good size
- Would like more of a frame
- Would like it to be a little more waterproof, live in the NW
I like the fit of this pack, I'm not a very tall women. The straps adjust easily, but would like it if they were wider. The size is perfect for a day hike, which is what I bought it for. I like the front load style, easier to organize for day use.
I've only had this pack for a month, but have enjoyed it so far.
