Wow, 2018 was a great year for Knack Bags! We shipped our first expandable laptop backpack on November 5th, and Knack Packs have been spotted around the world since.
The Knack Pack™ was specifically designed for the #OneBagLife, making it perfect for use as a laptop bag during the workweek – as well as a carry-on travel bag for weekend or longer trips.
Leah in Venice, Italy
We first met Leah when we spent a day on-location with her for product shots. Since getting her Knack Pack, Leah has traveled around the world with it. Leah is a full-time photographer, frequently traveling with her gear. She recently sent in these pictures from her trip to Italy, using her expanding laptop Knack Pack for international travel.
Rohn in Hawaii
Rohn is an adventurous hiker, who needed a smart laptop backpack to carry his tech products around the Big Island. From the airplane to a remote part of the island, Rohn was able to use one bag (his Knack Pack) to get there!
Heidi in The Caribbean
Heidi took her black Knack Pack to Curaçao, for a dive trip. She loved how easily it fit under her seat, saying, “Fit perfectly under the airplane seat. The design is so amazing and functional!”
Sheri in Block Island, RI
Sheri used her Knack Pack for a weekend on the beach. For weekend trips, Sheri is used to carrying multiple bags – and was originally planning on using a tote bag for her weekend getaway. She was a little dubious that all of her things would fit in one backpack. Says Sheri, “At first, I thought, ‘No way is my stuff going to fit.’ Granted, I knew it expanded. I knew about all of the pockets. But I had this huge sack of clothes plus my laptop and stuff for the beach and a big raincoat and umbrella.”
And, of course, it all fit! Sheri was able to use the expandable luggage compartment for her clothes, and then compress the expandable section when she didn’t need it.
Deb in Dublin
Deb and her daughter, Molly, visited Ireland recently. It was a short trip to the Cliffs of Mohr (pictured), and they didn’t want to deal with checked bags. Thanks to the suitcase compartment in their medium green Knack Packs, they didn’t have to!
Hayley in Paris
Hayley used her large Knack Pack as a carry-on backpack for a recent trip to Paris. Hayley raved about her bag, saying, “It has SO many compartments and a HUGE back section that fit a ton of clothes, makeup and shoes!”
John in Shanghai
John frequently travels internationally, and needs a laptop bag that is both professional and stylish. He recently went to Shanghai, China, and carried his work materials around in his black Knack Pack
Talya in Big Sur
Talya is currently pursuing a PhD at MIT, and took her Knack Pack with her on vacation to Big Sur, California. Being able to pack her laptop for schoolwork, as well as clothes for the trip was a game changer!
Daniel on the Pacific Coast Highway
Daniel recently took his large Knack Pack with him on a trip along the Pacific Coast Highway, in California. He was able to pack schoolwork, as well as his clothes for the trip. Daniel’s 6’8”, and he was stoked to be able to pack everything he needed in one bag!
Brian in New Zealand
Brian is a consultant who recently visited New Zealand with his family. His Knack Pack helped him cut down on luggage considerably, making it easier to travel with his guitar.
Kate in Iceland
Kate recently went on a trip with her family to Iceland. She refers to her Knack Pack as the “magic backpack,” because of how the packing compartment disappears and re-appears depending on whether she was carrying it on a plane or exploring the Icelandic countryside.
Corey and Bill in Costa Rica
Corey and Bill recently took a family trip to Costa Rica. They packed their clothing, as well as electronics like their laptops and headphones in their Knack Packs, making their trip much easier (and enjoyable).
Connor in Vietnam
Connor is a fashion photographer, who lives in Brooklyn and travels the world for photoshoots. He just got back from Southeast Asia, where he worked and played while using his Knack Pack as his primary bag for traveling.
Kevin in Antarctica
Kevin used his Knack Pack to travel to Antarctica with his family, having received it as a gift from his brother-in-law. We loved this awe-inspiring picture, taken just off the coast!
