Highly recommend, awesome bag!

Few weeks in and loving it. Perfect spread of features, pockets etc. Haven't fully tried expandable section yet, but looks good for 3-4 days of travel.

Knack team - couple ideas:
- the large bag that the backpack comes in - why not put drawstrings in it, so you can use it as a backpack (for hiking, beach etc., where you wouldn't take the Knack)
- why bug so soon after getting the bag, vs giving some time to use and get a real feel for it? Could even ask what/when/where my next cool trip is, during the order/checkout process. Peeps could share and you could ask them after that, giving you real life scenarios of how/where your gear is used.

Perfect size!

I purchased the Medium Expandable specifically to carry my laptop on a recent trip. It fit perfectly. Although I didn't use the expandable feature, I was able to fit quite a bit of things.
This is a very sturdy bag and is comfortable to carry.

Really happy with this bag

Really happy with this bag. I purchased it hoping it would truly serve as both my daily commuter and a travel bag. It absolutely does. I use it everyday and have already taken it on 3 different trips. While I do wish the internal pockets/organization had a few more options or details, the overall usability and quality of the bag are outstanding. This will be my go-to bag for a long time.

The Best Travel Backpack ever!

I got this from my company and didn’t really look at it until months later. They normally send us backpacks and figured it was just an average, same as the others. Oh boy, I was wrong!

The Knack is so AMAZING! I travel quite a bit for work and hand down, this is the best pack that I’ve owned. There are just the right amount of compartments to keep me organized. I love that there is a luggage section for those quick trips. I like the option of having straps and more importantly, being able to put them away. The expand feature is a fantastic option and the Knack isn’t at all bulky. It’s durable, looks great and keeps me well organized.

For me, I don’t think that I’ll ever own a different backpack other than a Knack!

Thanks Knack- for a engineering an the Best travel backpack!

Did SO much research and this is the best backpack I've ever had

I spent forever searching for the perfect backpack and even bought and tried several before finding Knack. Honestly this bag is perfect and I couldn't be more happy!! 10/10 recommend.

This is a great travel bag. I go back and forth between 2 homes every 2 weeks and this is perfect. I always have my 2 dogs with me so having hands free is necessary. I can pack a weekend's worth of clothes plus my essentials (laptop, phone, sunglasses, tickets etc.). The only thing I wish it had was a bigger pocket for a water bottle (it fits a 500ml bottle), but I haven't really found another bag that does either so I think it's pretty standard. Otherwise the bag is perfect. Great quality, nice looking and keeps me organized.

Great bag

First trip, this bag was great. Plenty of storage pockets. This is a great 1 to 2 day carry on bag. Love the expandable option.

Great bag for back to the office!

I love this bag for more than just travel!
My company has implemented a flexible work schedule which means I am in the office a few days a week and home for the rest. However along with the flexible work they have also added desk sharing called hoteling. This means that I no longer have a permanent desk to work at and I will need to reserve my desk for the days that I am in the office. This is where the Knack bag comes in. I am now having to carry a mobile office in my bag. Not only do I bring my laptop for work as well as a tech pouch for all the various dongles and power cords that laptop needs. I also bring my own keyboard and mouse. Since keyboards and a mouse get pretty gross anyway not to mention the risk of germs spreading, so having my own just makes things a lot more sanitary. The bag also holds my water bottle, my lunch and my shoes (I wear street shoes to and from work because the winter weather will ruin a pair of dress shoes quickly). The bag handles all of this without having to expand it. So if I need to bring a sweater or gym gear for after work I can just expand my bag and fit whatever else I need. In one bag! I see so many people ,especially women, carrying multiple bags into the office it is amazing that they don't have shoulder issues. I also really enjoy that I am hands free with the backpack because I can then open doors for others or pick up a coffee on the way in without dropping anything. With my Knack bag I know I have everything that I need for a successful day at work and with the professional look of the bag I don't feel like a school kid who walked into the wrong building. When I purchased this bag I had visions of traveling with it and it works really well for that but it has so much more versatility that just travel. I'm really happy with this bag and I'm so glad that I have it as my mobile office.

Greatest Work Bag Ever?

I travel a lot and being able to keep all of my work stuff in a nice organized place is extremely beneficial. Love all of the different areas for organization!…but wait there’s more! This bag turns into a full suitcase for short term trips, for easy packing and simple travel!! They gave you everything with this bag. Quality, comfort, organization, style. Well done Knack

Best Versatile Bag

I already own 3-4 different bags to be ready for any kind of trip (i.e. commuter, daypack, weekend/duffel and a 'going abroad' bag) and my knack bag solves everything. I've been looking for a backpack slim enough for a day trip but expandable enough in case my trip takes longer and I want to take home additional stuff. Best purchase ever!

Nice Expandable size that hit almost every mark for me

I'm 65 years young and was looking for a backpack that I could take on a weekend trip but would expand into something larger for longer trips but still be considered carry on luggage without checking at the airport. I recently retired and planning on global travels to complete my bucket list I've been building up.I did a lot of research and watch a ton of Youtube videos getting all the information I needed to make the decision that was right for me. I needed something that was on the light side yet sturdy enough to hold everything without sagging and losing shape. The Knack fit everything I was looking for. It has a sleek design without all the "in your face" branding. Some reviewers stated they wished the shoulder straps had more padding but I find them adequate for me since I'm not a nomadic blogger/youtuber so I don't carry a lot of heavy equipment. The shoulder straps are a nice size to hold my GoPro clip and comfortable enough to get me through the airports, trains and short walks through the new destinations. I like they can be zipped away and you can put items in there as well.

Now the inside. I really like the zip up water bottle compartment on the outside. I use it for not only my water bottle but a selfie-stick or collapsible walking sticks depending on the trip I take. The front(first) area has a lot of smaller "stick-in" pockets. For me it's an over kill. I wished there were fewer zip up see through mesh pockets here. I don't need 3 pens. I use the elastic loops for charging cables, chapstick or anything for quick access. The space at the bottom is large enough to house my travel journal, headphones, and GoPro carrying cases. The second zip up area holds a ton. I use this area for my iPad, toiletries bag, other charging cable, puff jacket, rain gear if needed. Really anything I might want quicker access without opening up the main compartment. I think the best feature of this bag is the clamshell opening. For shot trips it holds everything in place. But when I want to go on longer trips, it expands and I can fit two medium compression cubes easily with room to spare to pack along the sides for an extra pair of shoes.

These types of backpack are very subjective and everyone has their needs on what they want to carry and expectations. But this one hit almost every mark for me. Safe travels everyone!

Perfect travel bag

I took a recent trip and it held my 17" laptop easily and a weeks plus worth of clothes. That was without expanding it.

Great backpack for a graduate

I bought this as a gift for my daughter on her HS graduation, she is loving the backpack that she’ll be using as a college freshman in the Fall of 2021

All in one - One for all.

The video reviews of this back DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE!!!
I bought this bag for my wife to use for work; Real Estate. She texts me almost daily (for the last week) RAVING about this backpack. As a family who hikes, this back is almost perfect for taking to the trail! Plenty of storage, slim, lumbar support is 5 of 5!!!
THIS BAG IS AWESOME!

The perfect work and travel bag

Good quality backpack with a nice look. I was able to put 3 polos in the large cube, 3 tshirts in the medium cube and sleepwear in another medium cube along with 2 pairs of pants and a sweatpants with more room to spare. Worth the price I paid.

quality product - just not the right fit

I heard back from Knack regarding my return. So I have changed my rating to a 5 star. They did recognize my concern and fix it for me.

The bag was great, but I felt my MacBook Pro did not fit well in the side pocket. It was a little tight and difficult to remove.

The Large was just too big, but I may change my mind at some point. I still am on a quest to find the perfect bag for me.
