The Knack Pack 2.0: New and Improved

by , October 28, 2019

The Knack Pack has garnered a lot of admiration in the carry community thanks to its adaptable EDC and travel-ready design. But there’s always the opportunity to make good things better. So the Knack team dug down into feedback from customers around the world in order to pinpoint ways to elevate the Knack Pack further. And they’ve done just that, introducing over 40 updates to create the Knack Pack 2.0. Discover some of the primary updates below…

Small Knack Pack

By far the largest customer request was a more compact Knack Pack option. And the team have delivered with the new Small Knack Pack. Available in four colorways, it’s an enticing EDC alternative for people with smaller carry setups or smaller frames. The default 16L volume expands to 29L, while the laptop pocket fits up to 13″ tech.

New colorways

For the Knack Pack 2.0 the team have introduced two new colorways in addition to Stealth Black and Savile Gray. The Small and Medium Knack Packs are also available in Sangria Red and Indigo Blue. Great options if you want to side-step the more subdued route and spruce up that EDC style. Keen on leather? You’re in luck, as the Medium Knack Pack also comes in a limited edition leather version. And two additional limited edition colorways are on the way during the holiday period too.

More travel-friendly with larger luggage

The Knack Pack is a solid one-bag travel option but sometimes you need to carry more on your travels. So the team have added a trolley sleeve for all sizes of the Knack Pack 2.0, allowing you to slip the pack over the handle of wheeled luggage. Now you can shed the carry load and opt for all-in-one luggage portability.

Medium Knack Pack 2

Removable sternum strap

The original Knack Pack featured a fixed sternum strap, which some users appreciated and used regularly while others didn’t. So for version 2.0 the team added a removable sternum strap on the Medium and Large Knack Pack. Now it’s easy to adapt to different settings, using the strap for heavier travel loads or removing it for a cleaner work-friendly aesthetic.

Improved security

The Knack Pack 2.0 welcomes increased peace of mind with added lockable zipper sliders on both the main compartment and suitcase compartment.

Additionally, the front triangular pocket now also includes interior RFID-blocking pockets to protect your personal information.

Redesigned shoulder strap

The redesigned Knack Pack now features an elastic strap keeper to secure dangling webbing, while the D-ring at the end of the strap has been removed. This provides a cleaner look and also eliminates distracting D-ring clinking.

Redesigned business card pockets

The front triangular pocket is a convenient storage space for quick-access items. But it’s now even better courtesy of redesigned business card pockets. The new construction makes them deeper, so cards stay more secure and are easier to access.

Deeper top and interior pockets

The original pack had a top pocket designed for quick access to glasses. Now the updated design offers a deeper top pocket that still holds sunglasses well while also accommodating other items too.

To enhance functionality further, the updated design also deepens the interior lid mesh pocket, increasing storage flexibility.

Fabric updates

Travel bags need to be able to withstand tough use. And if they can help you out with hygiene too, even better. So the team tackled both fronts. The Knack Pack 2.0 features a new antimicrobial treatment to the lining, helping your gear and pack stay fresher for longer. And the body fabric now has increased threads/inch for improved strength and durability.

Updated key leash

Accessing your keys shouldn’t be a hassle. And with the updated Knack Pack, it isn’t. Version 2.0 serves up a removable key leash, along with improved key leash hardware quality.

Other noteworthy changes

Further to the updates above, the team have removed the webbing keeper straps in the travel compartment and redesigned the clothing retention system. Additionally, numerous construction changes have been made to improve the ease of opening and closing.
