Next-gen fabric, for the next generation.
Real talk: the best bag for the environment is the one that lasts the longest. That’s why using recycled yarn for our new Picton™ fabric wasn’t enough – it also had to give new meaning to ‘tough’.

3.0
We didn’t stop at the outside.
The Carry-on's interior is lined with a new, ultra-low-emission fabric that we repurposed when everyone else was mindlessly throwing it into landfill. Most important? It’ll take everything you throw at it – so your internals stay sharper, longer.
“I went through several bags before finding Minaal. It's absolutely the best bag I've ever owned. It looks great, it feels great, and it lasts through anything. I love the suspended laptop holder – now there's no need to travel with an extra case for my laptop!”

Comfort, yes. Bulk? Never.
We rebuilt from the inside out to create our new Unified Harness™. Same streamlined size, fewer resources used – yet even more comfortable, for a wider range of humans.
3.0
Soft & strong.
Re-engineered, multi-layered EVA foam in the Unified Harness now runs flush to the edge of each strap, giving your shoulders a flexible and forgiving fit.
Formed & fitted.
Upgraded internal panels support the Harness – and your spine – by reducing bulk and reinforcing high-impact areas.
Did you know?
Most bags use mesh ‘spacer foam’ on the back panel, because it’s the cheapest option. It’s also a clear signal to everyone else that you’re wearing a backpack designed for the outdoors. Which is fine... until you’re headed for the office.

That’s why the Carry-on 3.0 uses an integrated, single-piece, custom-molded foam panel with indented airflow channels. You're at home everywhere – the Carry-on is right there with you.
Some things are worth protecting.
"I love risking my $2000 laptop every time I step out the front door,"
said no one, ever.
Peace of mind. Now even easier.
You carry your office everywhere you go, so our patented DeviceNest™ protects everything you can’t afford to lose, by suspending your devices away from exposed edges.

Accessing your devices from the top and side of your bag is now even easier, with wider entry points in both directions – meaning no need to trade safety for speed.

LESS IS MORE
We’re merciless with bag features. If it doesn’t actively help you, if it doesn’t reduce friction from your life – it’s not worth carrying.
custom sizing system
With up to 16 possible configurations, the DeviceNest promises a snug fit – even if you change up the size of your next laptop. It’s how we build gear for the long term.
Rain is not the enemy.
Most companies want to charge you extra for a rain cover, or they make performance compromises by using one fabric that tries to do everything. No bueno. The 3.0 comes bundled with a featherweight, seam-sealed, detachable rain cover that packs into itself – no strings attached.
A hideout for your passport.
If you’ve ever been frustrated finding the perfect spot for your passport or valuables – this one’s for you. The 3.0 features our new secret pocket, seamlessly integrated into the back panel.

Near-impossible for anyone else to access when you're on the move – but sling the bag around one shoulder, and your valuables are at your fingertips.

“I was hyped for the original Minaal even though I thought it wouldn't be big enough for my needs (very tall person here). Yet, I still bought one for shorter trips and it's been my trusty companion all over the world. Now, I can't wait for covid to pass, so I can show the 3.0 my favorite spots!”

Keeping you on lock.
ACCESS VS. SECURE MODES
Lightning fast, 270-degree access to your gear? Or extra-secure zipper blockers? You decide, with our adjustable compression straps.
LOCKABLE ZIPPERS
When you feel the need, go extra-secure by padlocking your main and tech compartments shut.
4-POINT ADJUSTMENT
Your most valuable possession is a healthy spine – so our magnetic 4-point harness adjustment system helps with your load.
Break free.
Glide on by – the Carry-on 3.0 cuts the friction from every journey.
Open wide. From all angles.
The Carry-on's main compartment opens flat, to be easily packed – and unpacked – like a suitcase. Internal pockets are 3D-shaped to give extra volume and versatility.

270-degree zippers mean 270-degree access, without digging past layers of the stuff you’re *not* looking for. 
3.0
For your office, too.
The separated device compartment also lies flat, and the DeviceNest, document sleeve, and pen pocket keep you sorted. Because life comes at you from all angles, the DeviceNest takes both top *and* side entry.
Did someone say ‘aerodynamic’?
Hide the shoulder straps in seconds, for a more streamlined look – then, the foam-padded carry handles and Shoulder Sling accessory glide you past the fumbling hordes.
“The Carry-On is the bag I've been searching for... for 8 years! It's the perfect combo of capacity & organization. Even fully packed out, it's the most comfortable carry I've ever experienced. I can explore a city all day with the 2.0 on my back, and it feels like I'm carrying nothing!"
Zach L. — Wichita, usa
More than just a bag.
Our tens of thousands of users – spread around the world, and in our private community forum – are quite literally our reason for existing. Our daily mission is to make their original purchase more valuable for the long term, and ensure that any issues are handled immediately, by a real human.

As a Minaal owner, you’re part of something bigger than a product.

We can’t wait to say hi.
It’s the little things.
Anyone can make a bag. But most people who make bags, don’t actually work and live on the road. We do – that’s why we sweat the details.

EASY-PULL TABS
The Carry-on now has yank-proof Hypalon pull tabs, to help zip the most overpacked bag closed.

ELASTIC INTERNAL LOOPS
The Carry-on 3.0 features new elasticated loops for the Shirt Protector accessory, taking up less space and holding tighter, so your finest threads don’t go flying.
3.0
BOTTLE HOLDER FLEX
The bottle holder now holds a wider range of bottles, and stores them more comfortably, thanks to an elasticated base.
SECRET SIZING
The bag dimensions are secretly printed on the strap, giving you the upper hand in ‘friendly debates’ with overly-officious gate agents (including the ones who only speak Metric).
MAKE SOME NOISE
If you like shaming pickpockets and scaring away the occasional wild animal, you’ll appreciate the tiny whistle built into the Carry-on’s chest strap.
Velcro straitjacket
We wage our War On Dangle in even the darkest corners of the bag: hidden velcro patches in the tech sleeve clear the way for smooth entry & exit of your devices.
Current bag still in great condition? Oh, we got you.
The last thing we want to create is more waste. That’s why – if you don’t have a way to sell or gift your current bag – we’ll receive it, guarantee a good home for it, and throw you a $20 store credit. You upgrade your set, we take care of the rest.
All this.
Without all that.
You might be thinking: ugh, all those features are going to be heavy.
We say: do you even know us?
Light carry weight is critical for staying in flow. So we streamlined internal structure and reduced material consumption, to ensure the Carry-on stayed featherweight.

Going places.
Here’s how we approach our craft.
FOR THOSE WHO KNOW
We make opinionated gear, because we live on the road and we know what it takes. Not for everyone – perfect for us.
OVER THE HORIZON
Unlike most luggage, we design with *international* carry-on size limits in mind. Because your life doesn’t stop at the border.
THE PERFECT BLEND
We use best-in-class components to handle life on the move, and wrap them in a minimalist aesthetic – so you’re equally at home in the outdoors and the office.
HERE TODAY, HERE TOMORROW
We’re 100% community-funded, without any crazy investor growth expectations. That means we’re with you for the long term.
MORE THAN MONEY
We’re a Triple Bottom Line company, meaning we act on wider, more sustainable guiding principles: People, Planet, and Progress.
UNDER THE SURFACE
Good design means caring about the stuff you won’t ever see. We build from the inside out, to guarantee the longest possible lifespan for your gear.
LESS IS MORE
We’re merciless with bag features. If it doesn’t actively help you, if it doesn’t reduce friction from your life – it’s not worth carrying.
IT’S ABOUT THE PEOPLE
When you invest in a Minaal, you’re getting more than just a product. On top of our members forum, we're happy to help and always just an email away.
FAIR PRICES
We don’t randomly discount, because we set honest prices in the first place. We don’t pretend to be who we’re not. And we’ll never BS you.
Ready to roll.
The Carry-on 3.0 is our companion for our next steps forward, into the unknown.
If we can’t take it carry-on – we’ll throw it in the car. If borders are closed – we’ll explore the local. 
No matter your destination, or your distance covered, you’ll know that your gear has done a million miles of testing before it reaches you.
We don’t just stand behind it.

We put it on our backs.
