While we’ve seen a lot of changes in 2020, one of the biggest has been a monumental shift to working from home! Many Knackpackers are now working remotely 100% of the time, or going into the office 1-2 days a week and telecommuting the other days.
Working from home usually intersects with remote learning as parents juggle their work calls with their children’s classes via Zoom! This isn’t easy, and today we wanted to celebrate a few Knack Dads who are working remotely while also successfully parenting.

Brandon Wong - San Francisco, California
Brandon works in Silicon Valley, balancing #DadLife with his professional career! Here’s what Brandon had to say about his Knack Laptop Backpack: “Being a working parent means needing to carry a ton of random things around. I’m so thankful I got my @knackbags, it is such a game changer - easily fits all of things I need within one awesome, functional bag for remote work life!”
Malcolm Buffington - Las Vegas, Nevada
From Malcolm: “I’m grateful for things slowing down so much that I have been able to enjoy every moment with my kids. I know that’s a privilege that not everyone has been able to enjoy, but I’m just grateful. I’m grateful for the time I have to be there to teach them new things. To create fun, spur of the moment memories & just enjoy their little laughs and endless love. It’s been a tough go for the world & we have had our fair share of trials, but it’s given so much time to build stronger relationships with the ones I love most.”
Kevin - Tulsa, Oklahoma
Guys, we love this bag. Room for days and so great for everyday life and not just travel. If you haven’t checked them out you absolutely should!”
The Positive Papi - Long Beach, California
Nico Marks is a digital content creator based out of Long Beach, CA! HEre’s what he had to say about his Knack Backpack: “Being a father is one of the biggest blessings to have. It’s so important that I continue to be the best role model for my boys and take time out for them everyday, even in the craziness of everyday life. S/o to @knackbags for this amazing bag, making life so much more portable and easier. Really gave me a chance to reset and recenter.”
Best Backpack for Parents Working From Home
The Knack Backpack is an expandable laptop backpack that’s perfect for parents who are working from home. Many families have kids who are now homeschooling or attending school via Zoom, which means more tech and chaos at home! Keep your work items separate from the rest of the family by keeping your laptop, cell phone, hard drives and tech stored in your Knack Pack when you’re not using it!
When the kids need a break, easily pack your bag and create a mobile office at the park or soccer fields. Hotspot using your phone, and answer work emails while keeping an eye on your kids!
