Great OverallI only have one bad thing to say about this pack because overall, this pack is build tough with quality materials. Everything is really fonctional ans solid. On your back, it fits really well and it is highly comfortable.
The problem is the way to tight the belt which is to my eyes unacceptable. With a bag that big and that heavy, you have to be able to tight the strap by pulling inside. Not outside. The result is, with a 45 pounds pack or more, I am struggling to tight the belt enough and the result is that the weight is not well balance between my shoulder and hips.
It is a small thing but that detail make my hike way more difficult since the weight is pretty much all on my shoulder. I will custom it to be able to pull the straps.
Other than that, great pack with high quality material. If they change the belt system, AWESOME product. Worth totally the price.

Superb pack!I bought this pack a month ago and have not regretted it since. It's big enough to hold all my bulky winter and bushcraft gear with ease. Simple, strong, dependable and fits most size body frames. Get one now!

Heavy Duty gear for serious useI bought the Norrona Recon pack a year ago and have used it couple of times in hiking trips.
During the last trip with my girlfriend I carried quite big load, which included tent, most of the water and food we had and all the usual hiking kit.
This pack has all the right features and nothing useless to add weight and making it too complicated.
Only thing I would add to it would be a dedicated pouch for hydration system and other hole for the hose.
Other thing worth thinking would be to replace the bungee cords on top of the lid with attachment points for gear.
Other than these minor points,this pack is one of the best high capacity packs there are in the market today.

King of the fellsThis is the unbeatable combination of easy to carry and huge loading capacity. I've been hiking in the Finnish fells with three children using this backpack, carrying tent and food for four people on top of the usual one person kit. The flexing hip belt that keeps the weight central at all times is what does it. Even off track or on block terrain, or wading through streams you keep balance.
