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.

Best Bag Ever!

Ok, so, first of all I returned the small for a medium as it was a little too small for someone 5 11. However that didn’t stop me from recognizing that it’s exactly what I was looking for (after many, many other bags I’ve tried).
As a day to day, it’s perfect. As a travel bag and day to day where you are going, it’s perfect!
From work to vacation, it’s perfect!
If you’re thinking of buying a Knack, don’t hesitate, just buy one.
And enjoy!
Thank you, Knack!

Small Knack

Decided to get the Small for my EDC bag and I love it. My little laptop for daily use fits comfortably and I can take my planner and books to class quite easily. It's also great for weekend trips and perfect for carrying your wallet and essentials while taking in the travel life. Love it and looking forward to a Spring color in small!

Best Backpack EDC and Travel

I bought the small Knackpack, I was not disappointed. It has replaced several other bags I owned as my EDC bag (I'm donating them to Goodwill). It's light, durable, and has awesome organization. The straps are comfortable and the bag fits well. I don't like backpacks that ride low on your back, I like my backpack to fit a little higher on my back and the small Knackpack fits just right. The expanded suitcase compartment is unbelievable, I have two short overnight trips coming up and can't wait to see how well the suitcase compartment performs. This is an excellent purchase for me and I plan on getting two more. Medium sangria red for me and small sangria red for my girlfriend. Thank you knack for a excellent product.

Perfect for daily use & travel!

I bought my knack looking for a pack I could use both for my daily commute and travel.

As far as my daily commute - it fits my lunch & gym clothes with ease in the expandable compartment, leaving room to spare in the standard inner compartment too. My water bottle fits into the hidden side pocket, but I ended up using that space for my umbrella. Straps are comfortable, bag is easy to take on and off, especially when wearing my puffy winter coat (other bags had straps that would twist on themselves or not slide on my coat sleeves easily, thus making removing the bag a huge pain...and living in Chicago, a packed morning train + wearing puffy winter gear at least 5 months of the year makes this important!) I particularly appreciate the angled front pocket and the upper phone pocket, as both of those prevent your smaller items from pooling at the bottom of a single front pocket as with other bags. The inner compartments have mesh and zippers and all sorts of wonderful things to help keep you organized.

I make frequent 1 or 2 day trips for work, and I fully intend to use my Knack as my sole bag for these trips. I am also headed out of the country on vacation in 1.5 weeks, so I’ll be able to test fitting the fully expanded Knack under the airplane seat! (Don’t anticipate having any issues).

The fabric is sturdy and seams and zippers appear/feel well sewn. I am optimistic about the bag holding up for many years on the road. The overall look of the bag is sleek and compact. It expands and collapses easily and intuitively.

The one thing I would add are specific tube slots for pens/highlighters, but that’s minor and not enough to detract from the rest of its great features.

I’m so happy with this purchase! Thanks for making an awesomely functional bag!

Nearly perfect little hybrid

I travel extensively for business and pleasure. I was as looking for a flexible bag that fits both needs and Small Knack fits the bill!

Pros:
Looks
- Formal enough to look the part for business, while casual enough to look fine on the resort bus.
- Doesn't scream "hey I've got money, rob me" like a Tumi.
Size
- It is just big enough for small laptop and travel stuff. On most planes it even fit on its side with room for my feet on with side (not expanded).
- The expansion is the feature that most attracted me and it is great! Go small, but if you're come home with extras, you got the room.
- It should fit any airline's criteria for a "person item," at least when not expanded.
Convenience
- There are lots of organization options. I have some nitpicks, but overall great.
- Fits a 13" laptop as advertised, but barely a MM more. See cons
- Can fit on roller bag handle, but there is an issue. See cons.
- RFID shield area.
- Shoulder straps tuck away if wanted.

Cons:
- The bottom slot on the backpack for the roller bag handle in is too small! I have a ubiquitous Briggs & Riley 22 incher and it only fits with a struggle. Additional 1/2 inch bigger slot please!
- I have a Macbook Air, which is 13.3", not 13.0" (who knew?). This makes it slightly awkward to get the laptop it in and out, but better with wear. A quarter inch bigger zipper would fix this.
- I think that Knack thinks you would put your Passport in the front V pocket. You would be crazy to do that. There are no zippered or Velcroed pockets in that area. If you grabbed something, forgot to zip up and juggled the bag upside down your passport could be gone. As a result I keep mine in another area with a zippered pocket, which unfortunately does not have the RFID protection.
- The interior pattern seems very a little too feminine to me. I would prefer something a little more neutral.

Overall, after several trips I am a stron...

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!

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.
