Knack Packs Spotted around the World

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 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!”

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
