Everything I expected and then some. This pack will give me many years of use weather it is used for edc or just for an occasional outing that I need to carry my computer. Great pack.
I love the pack and alot of the design features. I gave it 4 stars only because I would like some more compartments inside and out for storage. Everything else about the pack is excellent. I EDC the pack for work with laptop, phones, chargers and such, and a G19 and spare mag. A pouch on The inside of the edc compartment for my pistol to sit in instead of dropping all the way to the bottom of the pack would be nice also.
I recently bought one each little trick, switchblade and jacknife. The goal was to identify the best pack for concealed carry of my SBR along with items required for work travel; such as pens, ID badges, security badges, laptop, etc.
All three packs are exceptionally well made using high quality materials. I chose the jacknife simply because the rifle has a compartment entirely separate from the main interior section. This was important to me because i did not want to chance revealing the rifle when i opened the pack for a snack/laptop etc…
The rifle compartment just barely closes around my SBR, which is dismantled into two pieces. With the 1-6 Burris scope mounted, the entire width of the compartment is taken up. Also, i would like to see two quick straps installed in future models. I feel like This would help prevent the rifle sections from moving about.
The jacknife is smaller than the others i tried, and does lack some built in organizational options, but so far that has not been a huge issue. I plan on buying some small pouches to keep small things handy.
Five stars overall despite the smallish size. Customer service is excellent, I plan on visiting the store later this summer when I am in Boise.
This product is built strong. Great carry handle to share the load. Shoulder straps are robust. Definitely not an ideal EDC pack. In fact, there is nothing EDC about it. The bottom of the pack should be flat so that the pack will stand on its own. There are no organizers in and throughout the pack. Items can and will freely float around in all pockets. If one were to keep firearms inside the pack they will become damaged as there is no retention system. So many better EDC packs on the market. This is not one of them. This particular pack is way too expensive to be advertised as an EDC pack. I will not be recommending it for any type of adventure or carry. Back to the drawing board.
I cannot say it enough, Eberlestock is one of the best finds I’ve come across. I switched from Military clone gear when I got out of the military and moved on to better tech as a contractor. The usual names were all I would see in country. That is until I found Eberlestock. My assault pack got destroyed while running CQB and what’s worse is that it could have been avoided if a common problem had been addressed by the manufacturer. I needed a replacement fast and a newer guy on the team said I should look deeper into Eberlestock. So I did and never looked back. I don’t k ow how many employees there served or contracted but I do know that they have a great sense for both military and civilian common needs and approach there designs with a forward, simple and logical stance. We all want gear that will not let us down more importantly we want gear that we don’t even have to think about. Well that’s Eberlestock.
Perfect for concealing your pistol or short rifle. Excellent quality as all of their packs are. May lack a little access and inside pockets for an everyday pack, but the large open compartments and Velcro capabilities could help with that. Probably the most open availability with the great clamshell design. I have 3-4 different packs now and they all perform well for their desired function. Add in the quality and selection, Eberlstock has a pack for most needs! Great job
It’s a very well made pack, I don’t think it’s quite big enough to take over as an EDC bag without looking too bulky. They color choice leaves a bit to be desired and it doesn’t have a flat bottom so don’t expect to stand it up next to you if you’re seated
I'll review it on YouTube.
I use this pack as a weekend bag and it’s great for it
The Jacknife is the versatile everyday carry and travel pack that I've been waiting for years for Eberlestock to release.
The size is perfect for traveling with all of the essentials: a full-size laptop, a notepad and documents, a small med kit, etc. The rear compartment serves a lot of purposes depending on your application. I've tested it with a broken-down AR and a PDW, but it works equally well for traveling with a folded jacket or even putting enough clothes in there for a basic overnight trip.
My only wish was that it had the same admin features in the lid pocket that the Bandit has, but I solved that by using a few small packing cubes and an admin panel inside the main compartment. Overall, it's a great pack and it will be taking over most of the daily carry and air travel duties from my Bandit.
