There’s no organization whatsoever, so we use packing cubes and pouches to keep things in order. That said, the Recon already has a myriad of compartments and pockets, so it’s nice that this one’s left for the user to play around with. We’ve definitely seen other brands go overboard with their backpacks’ compartmentalization, so we’re glad to see that’s not the case here

The North Face Recon Review (2 Weeks of Use)
If you're going on a weekend trip - or you can keep it more empty and really cinch these sides down and create a lower profile, look - and i just this is a great bag. I mean this is probably my personal favorite compared to the borealis and the jester and the recon is just an awesome standby.

I think with this bag, just because there's not a lot of organization going on here.
