Do you spend just as many hours on the move as in the office?

Then the Recon Backpack is ideal. To start with, it's made from durable recycled nylon ripstop so doesn't need to be handled with care.

Thanks to moulded shoulder straps, a padded back panel and its FlexVent™ suspension system, it's comfortable to carry - even when fully loaded. The 30-litre volume is made up of a large main compartment, a front compartment with a padded laptop sleeve.

And if you like to hit the hiking trail come Saturday, the (removable) waist belt, sternum strap and two external water bottle pockets will come in pretty handy, too.
