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 Bag

I used to carry a large totem bag as my work bag. I switched to the dmall Knack and use it as my tote AND just went on a 3 day road trip and this was the ONLY bag I carried! It was awesome to be able to minimize the space I took up in the car.

Love this bag

Well worth the extra hassle to ship to the UK and I will be getting another for my partner. I feel this bag can replace both my current EDC (Tom Bihn Synapse 19) and travel bag (Minaal Daily).
I'm 5'7" and I like how this bag sits nicely on my back above the waistband of my clothes.
I've only used it as an EDC bag so far and it is extremely comfortable. I have, however, loaded it up with the same items that I packed for a 6 day trip to Germany and it swallowed everything with some room to spare ...... not much, but enough for a few snacks for the trip home.
It's a little less comfy when fully packed due to it being quite deep ...... I felt like it pulled me backwards a bit. It could be that I need to tweak my packing for travel, some of my EDC stuff, kept in the main compartment, is a bit heavy and could perhaps do with being moved closer to my back when the pack is expanded. However, I like the idea of being able to leave the day to day stuff in it's usual spot, so I'll see how that goes when I actually travel.
I find the bottom pocket is ideal for my waterproof jacket, hat and gloves, allowing easy access when the weather turns.

There are a couple of things I would change but they're not deal breakers:
1. Less business card pockets, maybe replace a couple of them with a deeper pocket (eg. to house a battery pack)
2. Narrower pocketss (eg. for pens, an Apple Pencil or even an AA flashlight) ...... the elastics in the bottom pocket don't really hold long, slim items well I feel.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone has tried the Knack packing cubes in the small pack and what configuration they would recommend.

virtually perfect

Just got back from a weeklong work trip so really got to test this bag out.

1. I am petite 5'3' and the bag didn't overpower me.
2. the choice to expand the bag or not is fabulous. when I added clothes I expanded, when carrying work gear I closed it. the clothes section of the bag is also great for files or papers that you need to carry but don't need instant access to.
3. the bottomed zippered pocket was great for easy reach cords and adaptors
4. bag is very lightweight especially when you consider capacity.
5. impressive value for money. I've bought many 400 dollars bags not this well designed.

Here are my requests that would take this bag to perfect for me.

1. a D ring sewn somewhere on the front side of the handle that I can attach a small ID tag or attach a travel-size hand sanitizer
2. make the mesh compression flap that holds clothes down bigger so that items don't fall out if you can't put the bag flat to open that compartment. (i want to compress clothes and put flat files on top of that.)
3. put a small zipper pocket on shoulder strap in easy reach when i am wearing backpack that can hold a chapstick and key
4. offer more colors.
5. add sleeves for pens
6. bonus points if the bag can go in the washing machine on delicate. horrid things happen when chocolate meets pencil in the bottom of my bag.

Fantastic Backpack!

As a petite woman (5.0") who travels often (by plane and vehicle), I needed a smaller bag than the medium pack. The small Knack Pack is perfect for me. The pockets and features are great the help keep me organized and I can fit more than one outfit when expanded. The straps are a bit long (as I need to cinch them up all the way), but beyond that it's fantastic!
