Jacknife

I love the pack. Very high quality and durable. I wouldn’t mind a few more pockets.

My new favorite pack

I love this pack. The materials are rugged and there is plenty of room for what I carry. I like the adjustable harness which is a rarity in a pack this size. All-in-all, completely satisfied with the Jackknife. My first experience with Eberlestock but definitely won’t be my last.

Very nice pack

Just got this a couple of weeks ago. Haven't tested it out yet, but so far here's my thoughts:
-pack is bigger than I thought, which is good.
-zippers and denier material appear strong and durable.
-straps and back frame feel nice, firm, and comfortable.
So far I love it!

Exactly as advertised

The Jacknife is everything that it says it is, great quality, price point and functions. With that said there are some things that I did not like about the pack that I think are important to point out.
1- The front flat zipper pocket is only good for maybe carrying some chest seals and band aids. If you put documents in it, they will get bent. If you put anything thicker than a folder in it, it will encroach on the interior volume.
2- To access anything inside of it you must plan your stacking order accordingly. If you need anything at the bottom you will need to unload the entire pack to get to it.
3- There is no molle webbing inside to attach a holster or gear, so everything just floats around with heavier items settling to the bottom.
4- The "Jacknife" feature on the back is well padded but there are no provisions for securing your weapons from sliding around. If you are using it for a carbine broken don, the pieces will constantly crash into each other. The felt material does not allow for any Velcro attachments.
5- It does not sit flat on the ground, so if you plan on using it for business, when you set it on the ground to retrieve your laptop or documents, it falls over. If order to keep it upright, you need to lean the front part against something which makes it difficult to access the bag.

Enough about the cons. The construction is first class and I believe this would back an ideal hiking/adventure pack. As with all Eberlestock packs the shoulder harness assembly is the best in class which makes a big difference in carrying gear over a long distance. It does have nice features and is everything the advertising says it is.

So, did I keep it? No, I returned it for Switchblade pack which I believe will fulfill my needs. The customer service is great and returning the Jacknife was super easy.

I would not have exchange the Jacknife for a Switchblade if I did not believe 100% in Eberlestock products. Do not interpret this feedback as negative, the pack was everything that was promised, it just wasn't as EDC friendly which is why I had initially purchased it for.

Good solid bag.

Zipper an stiching along with material is top notch. Bag rides well with weight.
