Carry-on 3.0 Bag

$349 USD
Color: Vancouver Grey

Note: the grey Carry-on 3.0 is still in stock, but the black one is currently out of stock. We're expecting more sometime between October and December this year – just reach out if you want to join the waiting list for those! If your heart is set on a black Carry-on, you could also try our Carry-on 2.0.

The long-awaited successor to the Minaal Carry-on 2.0 has finally landed — and we’re seriously excited about it. The new Unified Harness, built from the inside out, means the 3.0 is more comfortable to carry — especially on longer journeys. The tech compartment now opens flat. And our new Picton fabric withstands the harshest elements — whether you’re dealing with rocks and rain in Colorado (it’s 22% more resistant to tearing), or fluff and dust in your ancient Istanbul hotel (it's extra lint-resistant, too).

Rugged new zippers and pull tabs also make it even easier to open/close, even when it’s tightly packed.

We’ve made dozens of other improvements, too, which you can read about in detail here. Years of testing and thoughtful user feedback have contributed to a revamped design that makes getting from A to B easier, faster, and more enjoyable than ever before. Bundle it with the Daily 3.0 for an even more flexible combo.

Looking for more info about the 3.0 bags? We've built deep-dive pages which cover the Carry-on 3.0 and Daily 3.0 in depth.

We offer a lifetime guarantee against all manufacturing defects. If your gear has a defect, we’ll send you a replacement or organise a repair – anywhere in the world.

This second paragraph is where some companies might list their endless conditions, exclusions, and sub-clauses to their reckless first sentence. But we’re big believers in common sense – a defect is a defect – and we won’t use legal jargon as a rock to hide under when you come knocking. Problems with our gear are incredibly rare, but we know how good it feels to have a solid warranty backing you up when you’re on the road. If any of our gear falls short of our high quality-control standards, we’ll make it right.

Ultimately, any gear that takes a severe beating over a long period of time will eventually show signs of wear and tear. This isn’t considered a defect – but drop us a line if you’re in doubt, and we’ll be straight with you either way.

If you're in the U.S. and want to request a warranty refund or replacement, you can do it here.

If you live outside the U.S. and have a warranty issue, it's best to contact us directly.

The best Travel bag period.

I spent hours researching bags, and waiting a year for the carry-on 3.0 to be released. I pre ordered the bag as soon as it became available, with no regrets! If you want a bag to help you pack only what you need, that can fit on any plane, that’s made from high quality materials that will last a long time, then this is the bag for you! I live out of my Minaal Carry-On 3.0 and I love it! It feels great to the touch, it’s comfortable to wear, and being able to hide the straps away to take even less space is awesome! In my opinion, this is the best travel bag out there and the last one I’ll need. The device best is the best on the market, I have not seen any other bag maker design anything as well as this. Your laptop/tablets are safer in this than anything else. And it’s accessible from the top or the side! Also, Minaal has the absolute best customer service! I wish I could buy everything from them they are that great! This bag is worth the money, if you are thinking about it, then think no longer. Just buy it!

Perfect Travel Combo

Perfect all in one bag combo for traveling. The larger bag is large enough to hold all of your standard travel gear plus a full week of clothing at least and the smaller bag is the perfect day trip out of the hostel bag.

Stellar customer service.

Whilst I haven't use my Minaal 3.0 bag as much as I would have liked to put it through its paces (thanks covid), with limited use so far it has worked a treat.

One area I am willing to comment on is the stellar customer service from the minaal team: from prompt email responses to accommodating my additional requests and keeping me abreast all the way till i received my bags, I highly recommend minaal.
