One of the best things about your Knack is we’ve hidden the expansion functionality to keep its look clean and streamlined. Beneath the flap that runs around the bag you’ll find a hidden zipper. Simply flip back this flap and unzip it to expand the travel compartment and gain an extra 5” of packing space.
It depends on how you plan to use your Knack. For everyday use that includes your work gear (including a 13” laptop) and a change of clothes for the gym -- small is a great choice. If you carry a bit more every day for work (including a laptop up to 15”) or you want to travel for a night or two away, go for the medium. The large works best if you are taller and/or need to carry around more stuff for various everyday activities (including a laptop up to 17”) or if you expect to use it for trips that last 2-4 days.
Rest assured that Knack bags are built with ergonomics and style in mind, no matter what size you choose.
We construct our Knack bags with a water-resistant fabric and a reverse-coil zipper to keep your stuff dry unless you’re caught out in a heavy rain for a while. It’s not water-proof, so please don’t jump in the pool or go white water rafting with your Knack bag!
If you’ve placed your order in error or accidentally purchased the wrong size, we’re unable to cancel it as we process orders immediately for shipping. However, once you receive your bag you can return it for free (we’ll even cover shipping). Visit the Returns page to learn more.
Currently we ship Knack in the United States and Canada. We have plans to expand to Europe, Asia and South Americain the next few months. As we grow, we hope to continue to add new countries to the list.
That depends on what shipping option you choose when you check out and where you live. Our free ground shipping typically takes 3-4 business days after shipping from our New Jersey warehouse. You can also choose two-day or next-day shipping for an additional cost if you just can’t wait to get your Knack!
If you were lucky enough to get a Knack as a gift but you think you’d like a different bag at the same price, feel free to exchange it within 30 days of receiving your gift. Unfortunately, we cannot process refunds without the original credit card and order information.
We stand behind our product. If you have any issues after your 30-day trial period, please let us know. We will review each request and make it right if we feel our bag didn’t perform as it was designed to.
We are firm believers in quality and have designed every detail with care, including our own custom-designed body fabric. It’s woven with two different colors of strong, lightweight 1200 denier polyester yarn. We then use a PU undercoating to make the fabric more resilient against rips, tears and stains, as well as to make it water-resistant. At the very end of the process, we coat the exterior of the fabric with a light wax to provide a softer hand and resistance to dust and dirt.
Every Knack product was tested repeatedly during development. We put each bag through over thirty challenges that measure things like tear strength, puncture strength, abrasion resistance, color fastness, toxicity, seam-burst strength, zipper pull failure and handle jerk resistance. Basically, we’ve got you covered.
The Knack fabric is very durable and dirt-resistant. You should clean your Knack using a damp cloth. Do not machine wash your Knack bag, as that would remove the coating that helps give it strength, resilience, and water-resistance.
Knack bags are designed in Providence, RI and built by our team in China. We literally travelled the world to find the right partner to bring our designs to life. After months of searching and dozens of prototypes, we finally found a factory with a team who shares our passion for high-quality craftsmanship, while also having extensive experience in the category.
People who wear our bags have a knack for One Bag Life. And we believe One Bag Life makes it more enjoyable to mix work with the other things you want to do. Like travel, hitting the gym, hanging out with friends or anything in between. We design our bags to keep life simple and organized so you can get out and get to it.
The concept of Knack bags came from a simple observation: wherever we looked, we noticed an epidemic of people carrying multiple bags. Work bag and a gym bag. Computer case and roller bag. Backpack and briefcase. Suitcase and carry-on.
We realized that commuting and travel is so much more of a hassle when you feel (and look) like a pack mule with both shoulders and/or hands burdened with bags. You don’t feel free to move around and explore, be spontaneous, or even just answer a text message on the go.
From this was born the idea of a One Bag Life. We’ve spent two years refining this concept to bring you a bag that quite simply makes it easier to pack once and get out the door for whatever adventures await.
