In this video we will be taking an in-depth look at the Knack Series 2 Medium Expandable Knack Pack. After my original unboxing video I have had a chance to test this out for about a month and I will be walking through what it feels like to pack the bag out and how it holds up in real-world usage.
In this video we will be unboxing and doing a first look at the recently released Knack Series 2 Expandable Knack Pack. The new series introduces an updated look and a new organizational layout while keeping many of the things that made the original Knack Pack such a versatile bag. This will be a high level first look of the bag and I will be doing a more in-depth review in the future.
Review of the Black Ember Forge which is an incredibly versatile work and everyday bag that can has an awesome build quality, tons of great organizational options, works well as a should bag, briefcase, or backpack, and is even able to expand from 20-30L so it can be used for minimal travel. If you need something that can do a little bit of everything, this will be tough to beat!
Review of the Peter McKinnon and Nomatic Camera Travel Pack which is a premium and versatile camera and travel backpack that has tons of great features. It has an awesome build quality, great weather resistance, a really comfortable harness system, plenty of space and some interesting and configurable storage options. On top of that the bag comes with a unique ecosystem of accessories that integrate well with the bag to make it even more useful for anyone that has to carry a lot of different camera gear.
Review of the Timbuk2 Parker Commuter Backpack which is part of Timbuk2’s “No Wet Laptops” collection that offers some great weather resistant materials, a sleek look, some nice organizational options and the ability to expand to provide some extra capacity for minimal travel.
Review of the Peak Design Travel Backpack which is a very well made and feature filled travel backpack that offers tons of space, useful organization, and a great look. The price and the shoulder straps can be a bit of a turn off, but for the most part I can see why this has been one of the most popular travel bags of the year!
Review of the Timbuk2 Never Check Expandable Backpack which is an incredibly versatile bag that works very well for daily use and with it’s ability to expand can even be used for short trips. The bag has some great organizational options, nice comfort and a modern aesthetic that will make this fit in great anywhere.
Review of the updated Expandable Knack Pack which is a stylish and versatile travel and edc bag that is offered in small (16-29L), medium (17-31L), and large (20-40L) versions. The updated version of the Knack Pack maintains the great organizational options, quality, and expandability of the original while adding in some nice new features. If you are interested in exploring a move to a #onebaglife this will definitely be a good option to check out!
We are huge fans of one bag travel and can never imagine going back to traveling with a traditional carry on. However, one of the challenges with one bag travel is that you typically have to pack some sort of additional backpack to use during your day to day when you arrive at your destination as most travel backpacks will be too big or heavy to carry around with you all day. Thankfully, a few companies have taken it upon themselves to try to create a bag that can really fulfill the dreams of anyone looking for a true one bag travel experience. Unfortunately, when you are looking for a bag to satisfy all needs there will always be compromises, but after a great deal of testing these are the bags that we think are doing it best at the moment:
I have been a big fan of Tortuga's bags for a long time. In the past I have tested out their Outbreaker Travel Backpack and their packable day pack and I have always been impressed with how well designed and comfortable they are able to make their bags. So when I heard about their brand new Tortuga Setout Divide backpack I was super excited as it seemed to provide the perfect mix of space and features to make a great day bag and travel bag (the first real competitor to the Nomatic Travel Pack) while also including the same quality and comfort that I have come to expect from Tortuga's other awesome bags. I have been testing the bag out for the past couple of weeks and so far I have been super impressed with the Setout Divide and I definitely plan to continue to use it for many trips going forward. Read on to see a quick glimpse of the pros and cons I have noticed so far while using the bag and to see our in-depth video review for the Tortuga Setout Divide.
