How to Live a One Bag Life

GET ORGANIZED

Don’t worry about your backpack being a black hole. We designed pockets, sleeves and clips that help keep your everyday items organized and in place no matter where you go.

STAY FLEXIBLE

Not sure about staying in town after your business trip ends? Unzip, expand and pack our hidden suitcase compartment with a change of clothes and be spontaneous.

BE READY FOR ANYTHING

Inspired by tailored clothing fabrics, our custom-designed, two-toned, water-resistant fabric is as much at home at a meeting with your boss as it is at drinks with your friends.

KEEP CONNECTED

Feel free to carry your laptop day and night. We designed our padded computer pocket to be easily accessible and close to your back for carrying comfort.

WEAR A BACKPACK BUT DON’T LOOK LIKE A HIKER

Our zip-away side water bottle pocket keeps your drink handy and your bag neat.

BE PREPARED

It should never happen, but if that flight attendant makes you check your backpack, don’t worry about your straps getting caught on the luggage carousel. Simply unzip the back pocket, unclip your straps and stow them out of the way.

HAVE FUN

Our custom-designed lining brightens up your day and ensures things never get lost in your bag.

Very happy with this bag overall as a daily carry and travel bag.

I have been extremely happy with the purchase of this bag. Love how the main and front triangle compartments fold open, giving a good visual of the contents without spilling anything. It has the feel of handing you it's contents which combined with the smooth zippers that can be used with one hand, I can get what I need blindfolded. The amount of space is perfect for my daily carry where there is just enough space for an extra sweater or jacket. The expansion gives exactly enough space for my 2 packing cubes and toiletries. I do wish the bottom compartment was big enough for a pair of shoes. I don't want to put my laptop cable there as that is a 3rd zipper then to get my laptop setup but it's too small for anything beyond a pair of flip flops.

Comfortable but the back panel gets sweaty on my bike rides to the office. The off center hip belt is also kind of annoying and just barely tightens enough for my 30" waist. Also the chest strap needs an elastic to hold the excess strap so it's not bouncing around while walking. Shoulder straps are great. The clips that hold them on are really nice and can be used to hold excess strap.

Overall I really like the look. The grey was a bit darker than expected but I like even more than the pictures. It just looks good sitting there in my room. It would be nice if it stood up on it's own but it's solid enough to lean against things really well.

Excellent hybrid travel bag

Absolutely love my Knack Pack (large). I wanted a one-bag-travel bag that can compress and used once I get to my site, and it has exceeded my expectations. The bag is made of high-quality materials, the pockets all make sense, and it has plenty of room for my work gear AND some clothes. Their packing cubes (I got two medium and one large) are also excellent and make packing/unpacking a breeze. Great bag, thoroughly enjoying it.

Great bag few improvements needed

This is one of the best backpacks I ever owned. The size of it is great and space is amazing. Few recommended things to perfect it:

- the zippers get stuck sometimes
- the back memory foam is great but gives you a sweaty back after a while of carrying.
- the front pocket with 2 zippers could have better organization as the current form limits what could be placed.

I know knack will get it fixed and my only regret is that I will have to purchase and pay for the newer version at some point.

Received my bag through Stackry, took me a bit of effort :). What I like:
- overall quality
- look of the bag, not too flashy
- laptop compartment
- small compartment on the upside of the back end
- overall placement of the compartments

What could be better:
- i really miss one "secret" compartment on the inner side of the bag (against my back) to hold wallet on phone securely
- the triangle section compartment - cant really find any use for it?

Better than I imagined

After doing research for a few months via YouTube and everywhere I could find any information on this bag, I finally pulled the trigger. I am thoroughly impressed in every way. the durability of this bag is unparalleled and the thought put into every pocket, zipper, and insert is remarkable. The way I am able to pack now makes my travel that much easier. I use the backpack every single day, even when I'm not traveling, because there is a place for everything. I hope this bag lasts me a very long time. Everything I can see right now tells me I won't have to worry about another bag purchase for several years.

Outstanding travel pack!

First, full disclosure, I am a freelance bag designer and was involved in the initial creation of the Knack pack. That said, I am extremely pleased with how it turned out. I've just returned from a 4 day trip (in a sense, a field test) with the large size, and all my clothes easily fit in the clothing compartment. The pack was quite heavy with my clothes, laptop, chargers, etc, but it's very comfortable and carries weight well. The hip belt and sternum strap do a fine job of weight distribution, and the shoulder straps have just the right amount of foam without too much bulk. A small quibble I might have is replacing some of the business card slots in the front pocket (I don't use them, so it's really a personal preference). The only other thing I would change is making more room in the bottom compartment for my laptop charger, it's a wee bit cramped but still works fine.

I would probably not use the pack in daily use around town, but I bought it for traveling, so this is no big deal (and the smaller size would be more suitable for day to day usage).

Great job guys! 5 stars all the way.

Large Knack Pack

It is a wonderful backpack I'm starting to develop some kind of emotional connection with. I use it as edc bag, and have found the use for every pocket. When I go grocery shopping after work, I expand the backpack, and this feature eliminates the need in plastic bags, and I hate to carry weight in my hands. It is super roomy yet slick in compressed form. Build quality is top notch. Thank you for developing this little wonder. I hope it will last for years.

It’s like a carry on suitcase and a work backpack in one!

Fully packed in the luggage compartment it easily fits two pair of jeans, 3 long sleeve shirts, 2 pairs of shoes, travel toiletries, socks, etc.
The work compartment fits everything you’d need for work. Plies a place for all items, keys, phones, glasses.
I strapped it on and walked 15 minutes in town - really comfortable.
All that and no bigger than a small roller bag. (With which you’d need a computer bag on top),

Used my new Knack Bag on a six day three city trip. Nice to only carry one bag! Airports became a breeze. Thoroughly impressed. A keeper for sure.
