HOW TO LIVE A ONE BAG LIFE - EVERY DAY

STAY CONNECTED

Use the Knack Pack’s padded side computer pocket to always keep your laptop with you. The pocket fits 15” laptops (measured diagonally) and its false bottom helps keep your computer safely off the floor whenever you put your bag down.

ORGANIZE THOSE CORDS

The easy access charger and battery pocket helps keep all those cords, chargers, adapters, batteries and USB sticks that you can’t live without in one neat place instead of rolling around in the bottom of your bag.

BRING YOUR SHADES

The fleece-lined, soft case sunglasses pocket is designed for easy access and protection. And there’s a bonus pocket behind it for other items you need at a minute’s notice.

HOLD THE CARDS

Feel free to throw in a bunch of business cards - there’s plenty of room in the organizer panel. Also, rest assured that your passport and wallet are safe. Our RFID blocking fabric protects your RFID chip cards from unwanted skimming.

STAY ON KEY

Our removable, easy-access key leash makes it a breeze to bring your keys with you everywhere.

CARRY IT ALL

The Knack Pack’s main compartment has two generously-sized, soft monofilament mesh, zip organization pockets. Our special mesh makes it easy to always see all the things you stuff into the pockets. If that’s not enough, there’s a protective fleece-lined pocket to keep your tablet safe and sound. Main compartment is 17 liters.

DON’T LOOK LIKE A HIKER

Only you will know that the sleek, hidden, zip-away side water bottle pocket holds your 17oz S'well® or 24 oz Hydro Flask® water bottle.

HOW TO LIVE A ONE BAG LIFE - TRAVEL

EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS

Our patent-pending, hidden expansion compartment is the secret sauce that makes Knack the perfect One Bag Life backpack. Simply unzip and expand the compartment to get over 80% more carrying capacity. Unexpanded: 17 Liters. Expanded: 31 Liters.

PACK IT IN

Not sure about staying in town after your business trip ends? Pack our patent-pending, hidden suitcase compartment with a change of clothes and live spontaneously Packing capacity: 14 Liters.

LOCK ON

Keep everything secure during your journeys with lockable zippers on the hidden suitcase and the main compartment. (Lock not included)

BE COMPATIBLE

Sometimes, your trips require a big piece of wheeled luggage. Don’t worry, it’s easy to bring your Knack Pack along too. Our hidden trolley sleeve lets you slip your Knack over the handle of almost all sizes of wheeled luggage.

STAY FLEXIBLE

Our adjustable sternum strap does a great job of distributing weight when you’ve really packed your Knack. But if you prefer a cleaner look, the strap unhooks for easy removal.

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 unclip your straps and stow them out of the way in the back panel pocket.

KEEP DRY

While we don’t recommend swimming with your Knack Pack, our specially coated fabric and reverse coil zippers help keep your belongings dry in all types of weather.

SMELL LIKE A ROSE

Our custom-designed lining brightens up your day and ensures things never get lost in your bag. And our special antimicrobial treatment helps to keep everything fresh even when you’ve packed dirty or sweaty clothes.

LOOK SHARP

Inspired by tailored clothing fabrics, Knack’s custom-designed, two-tone fabric is both lightweight and durable.

Best pack I've ever had!

Love the pack, great features, great quality, great compartments, great zippers. A friend had gotten 1.0 and I was waiting for 2.0 to become available to get my own. Great buy. The suitcase handle pass-through is an important feature to me. When the pack is really full it's tough to feed the suitcase handle through that slot. I probably had the pack way too full, but maybe something to look at as you continue to make this awesome pack even better!

Wish I had gone bigger

A great bag, but I wish I had gone with the Large instead of the Medium. Despite the dimensions being nearly identical to the duffel I planned to replace, the layout of the Knack Pack doesn't allow for the same quantity of items.

Overall my only complaints are that it's deceptively smaller than I had imagined and that the laptop compartment could be better padded at the bottom to prevent bumps when setting it down. Beyond that, it's thoughtfully designed, well-constructed, and comfortable to carry all day.

Hi Benjamin, Just wanted to let you know our Knack 2.0's have false bottoms in their laptop compartments, protecting our customers laptops from drops, bumps and whoopsies. Glad to hear our Knack Pack is working so well for you. Knack Customer Service

Great travel bag

Just used this for our last holiday trip. It has a ton of pockets in all the right places and is solidly built. Everything is well protected and this bag is thoughtfully designed. Thank you!

gift for frequent traveler

I bought this for my dad for Christmas after he did all of the research and decided which bag he wanted. He traveled with it the next day and absolutely loves it. I tried it out and can attest to the excellent build quality and overall functionality. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone looking for a competent daily carry or a flexible bag for multi-day trips.

I ordered this backpack for my husband's Christmas gift at the end of November. Today is December 31 and I have not received it yet.

Hi Anne,
We sent an email to you on 12/29/19 at 8:15 pm EST. It may have gone to your junk email, but we were checking to see if you received your Knack Pack or not. If not we were going to have the warehouse send one to you by two day air. If you can't find the email, please email us at support@knackbags.com.
The usual delivery time for free shipping to Hawaii is estimated at 14 business days, however it looks like USPS has had an issue with this shipment. For future orders, we do offer 2 day shipping for a $30 surcharge if timing is an issue.
Sincerely,
Knack Customer Service

Great gift

I gave this as a gift to my brother who often has weekend getaways and also has 2 kids. He really loved it! It's going to be perfect for him. He had never heard of Knack, but he was very impressed with all the pockets, storage, and the expandable suitcase portion.

As perfect as I can hope for.

Very happy with the bag!!! I've stress tested it on flights, it holds up perfectly. The most unexpected aspect is that for the first time ever in a backpack, I really know exactly where everything is stored and everything is easily accessible, even in the dark and when packed to the brim.
One more thing that might help someone: I use the medium backpack with the new 16 inch Macbook pro. It does fit inside, but the opening is just barely large enough. The first few times inserting felt uncomfortable/scary and it basically takes two hands and turning the bag on its side to take out the laptop. I've now gotten completely used to it, though, and couldn't be happier. But if you have a 16 inch macbook and are leaning between the large and medium knack pack, know that the large will be somewhat more comfortable. Also, when the bag is fully packed, I'm hesitant to use the luggage slide while the laptop is inside, lest it may get too pressured. Not sure if this would be better in the large pack. The important thing to know is if you have the 16 inch Macbook, you will be fine ordering the medium knack pack if that is your preferred size.

Clean Look. Great Bag!

I got medium black. Clean Look on the outside. Smart structure, Good quality. Feels light. I like that I can use the back luggage compartment's top open to push stuff in without opening it fully, like for gym cloths, etc...
I love the front compartment, how it opens and the see-through pockets. It's great for the day to day stuff. The front V style zipper is cool looking from outside :) though I personally find I never really use it.

My Biggest Complaint.. I don't like the expansion zipper. It feels cheaper and is super hard to open. Good thing i don't do that every day.

My second complaint, The luggage slide on in medium version is vertical and not horizontal, and it's super hard to push it in. I don't get why the horizontal opening does not exist in medium but does in the large version...
