Does the Medium Knack Pack Fit the 16" MacBook Pro? | One Bag Blog

At Knack, we get a lot of really great questions – and reviews! – via our customer support line.  In the last month, we’ve been getting a lot of questions about whether or not the Medium Knack Pack will fit the new 16” MacBook Pro.

The Medium Sized Knack Laptop Backpack was designed to fit up to a 15” laptop or tablet, and people worry that their new laptop won’t fit in the Medium Knack Pack!

So, does the Medium Sized Knack Backpack hold a 16” MacBook Pro?

Our answer: Yes – with a note!

Medium Knack Pack with Laptop Sleeve

Snug Fit for 16" MacBook Pro

The 16” MacBook Pro does fit in the separate zipped laptop compartment on the Medium Knack Pack, but it will be a snug fit for your new Medium Knack Pack laptop backpack.  

Main Compartment Option

Some Knackpackers prefer to put their laptop in the tablet pocket of the main compartment, using the zippable side pocket for important folders or documents.  If you need to pack multiple computers or tablets, this is also a great option.

Upgrade to a Large Knack Pack!

The Large Sized Knack Laptop Backpack is 2.5” taller than the Medium, and it is designed to fit laptops up to 18 inches.  It fits a good deal more (perfect for weekend trips!) in the expandable compartment, and weighs only 5 more ounces than the Medium Knack Pack.  More details on the differences between the Medium and Large Knack Pack can be found on our comparison page.
