- Volume: 1000 c.i.

I ordered the Jacknife as soon as I saw it was available, and have used it as my EDC for 2-3 weeks now.
-Build quality is great (like all Eberlestock packs)
-1,000in3 size is great for EDC
-Media divider for laptop
-Stretchy material for water bottle pockets
-Shoulder straps are wide enough to be comfortable when carrying a heavy load (ie a rifle and ammo, which I did test out)
-Breakdown rifle carry in an EDC/CCW isn’t very practical; the pistol storage pocket would be more functional (for me, at least). There are other bags in the Eberlestock lineup that are better at discrete rifle carry
-No organization in any of the pockets
-Bottom of the bag is angled, so it will fall over if it’s not laid flat
-Expensive compared to the Bandit and Switchblade, with less organization and functionality
I did a first-look review here:
In my opinion, if Eberlestock wanted to make the best selling EDC bag of all time, they’d take the Bandit, bump it up to 1,000in3, make it wide enough to fit a laptop, add a media divider, add the magnetic CCW pocket (but shrink it down so a pistol can’t float around inside it), make the water bottle pockets elastic, and add spare magazine slots in the top pocket.
