    Im not a fan of the new 2015 re-design. I had a north face recon model from 2009-2010 and that was the best backpack i have ever had. They made the inner compartment larger but the net on the back is super small compared to the old one. I use to stuff my lunch and sometimes other things such as small groceries in there at the same time but now i can barley fit just the lunch. Also they took away the adjustable side pockets and replaced them with “one fits all” pockets. This is super annoying because i use to love being able to secure my water bottle or umbrella tight to when i would run i didn’t have to worry about it falling out. I have no complaints about the innards of the backpack and i think the new 2015 model has a better laptop sleeve and a dedicated tablet holder, but my laptop and tablet fit just fine in the old recon and the extra space was not a necessary thing for me, if anything this backpack was more of a downgrade to me personally, I understand that not everyone cares about adjustable pockets and a large net, but to me those things made the recon my backpack of choice.
    Overall: this is by no means a “bad” backpack, its just not the backpack for me, So i am returning it. I wish they kept the recon design the same and i don’t like the changes they made.
