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 13” 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 16 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 18oz 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: 16 Liters. Expanded: 29 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: 13 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.

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.

Perfect Travel Bag

I just returned from my first long distance trip using my Knack bag as a carry-on. It was fantastic. It was very easy to keep everything organized and find things quickly. The expandable clothing compartment was perfect for transporting the shoes and clothes that I purchased in Europe. I highly recommend investing in this bag!

Best backpack ever

Great for everyday and weekend travel. So great to have a neat way to separate and access all my different stuff. 1 backpack to rule them all.

I have offices in two different cities and this pack was exactly what I was looking for in a backpack. I love everything about it.

Love this amazing small Knackpack

I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing Knack pack on a week in Hawaii this Christmas. The small pack is the perfect size for me. I love the separate laptop pocket, the spacious compartment for a book or two + sleeve for my Pro and Kindle Oasis, the internal water bottle holder, and other pockets. The expandable compartment was spacious enough for a packing cube containing a light jacket, 4 polo shirts and a couple of shorts. The small Knack pack + an international-size roller carry-on were perfect for the trip. I wish the straps had a bit more padding, and a sternum strap would have prevented the tendency for the left shoulder strap to slip out.

Amazing backpack

Amazing backpack. I got the small knack in blue. I got it because I like to use backpacks more than purses these days. Has space for everything. Love the possible expansion if I need carry some clothes with me. Unexpanded it hold my sweatshirt nicely, may be a little snug on however, but no means uncomfortable. The back padding is amazing. I do use the "sunglass" pocket for easy access to my keys. I also have a very large thermal water bottle, so I use the bottle pocket for my sunglasses when I'm to lazy to put them in their case.
One thing I would add is a spot to put your pen in the front pocket.

Great bag

Only improvement is : compression area should be a zippered compartment. Also need sleeves for pens.

Great bag

Well laid out and very useful pockets. I purchased the small one. Difficult to use the back pocket unless you open/extend the bag. Not a problem but necessary.

Awesome bag!

Love this backpack. Lots of space, lots of pockets, a place for everything you can imagine. AND it is so comfortable and light weight! Also I must admit I love the interior. So stylish! I am making packing cubes to match. If I ever need a larger bag, I will know where to go! Also I love the red exterior! Thank you.

Small Knackbag

Great size for petite woman. Love the expandable feature, organization, padded shoulder straps, and water bottle holder. Only wish that there was a sternum strap. It is small but a sternum strap helps keep the straps closer together and stabilizes the load for a petite person.

It goes with you everywhere!

I LOVE the two large compartments because I the OCD me wants my clothes completely separate from toiletries and everything else! I love how the front compartment opens all the way WITH GUSSETS! I love how I can put my FLAT IRON in the pocket made for water bottles. I spent a weekend visiting friends and the bag is so versatile, that wherever I went it didn't look like I was setting up camp with an overnight duffel bag or suitcase. I packed the bag for a weekend for myself and my 4 yo son and we went to restaurants, sailing, hung out by the pool and visited friends and the knack bag went with us everywhere. It was like a Mary Poppins bag! This does fall one short of 5 stars because the padding on the back side is sorta excessive . If it's made to be this thick and bulky to protect the laptop, then I'll understand, but when I packed the bag full for a weekend, the backpack no longer contours my back when I wear it. Then again this is new so maybe over time it will. Overall, I really like it and I'm thinking of getting the medium Knack Bag for trips that require for me to bring more because I do love the organization!
