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 bag you will ever own - one bag travel, daily life, hiking...


+ Looks good - sleek, minimal design/branding, smooth
+ Functional - well thought-out, organized, works great with shirt protector, packing cubes, and dopp
+ Just the right size - never been rejected from an airline (even if they enforce 7kg)
+ Amazing quality + company stands by warranty/community
+ Versatile - great for long-term travel, daily business, or hiking
+ I love this bag/company as they are consistently crushing it

I bought the original Minaal Carry-On as it was sleek, spacious for one bag travel, and seemed durable. It was the best bag I have ever owned with a great balance of space/organization/durability. Even better is the Carry-On bag has only gotten better with each revision. I have lived out of the Carry-On 2.0 for the last two years and it has seen every environmental condition and held up great. I have never not been able to be carry-on to an airline/ferry/jump of a boat/run and catch a bus/etc. Minaal as a company has been awesome from warranty to listening to the community.

Clip on a Matador FreeRain 24 waterproof ultralight daypack and add a Mack Weldon Dopp + Vapur waterbottle and you will be unstoppable.

Why do I love and use these products? They are FUN! Clever and innovative design. Great workmanship and materials. Be sure to watch videos to be sure you are aware of ALL the cool features. Review from time to time since new needs arise depending on travel circumstances AND you will likely be surprised how Minaal’s clever design will probably accommodate your new uses.
The Carry-on 2.0 has been used to trek in Nepal, for small and large airplane travel globally and as simply an overnight bag when helping out with grandkids. Amazingly well thought out and practically indestructible. I bought this early on and barely any wear and tear.

Versatile bag and excellent service

I've used a Minaal bag since it was first released and I go everywhere with it -- work, hiking, travel -- everywhere. It fits everything I need in an organized way and it's incredibly durable. It may be pricey, but it is worth it. When my first bag was stolen, Minaal quickly shipped out the second bag I ordered. Their customer service has always been impeccable.

Best Carry-on Bag in the World

I have had this bag for years and I have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles with it. I have used it for many multi-week, multi-country trips, and use it every couple weeks for business travel. Even so, it is still in amazing condition and shows almost no wear. It is exactly what I want, but is so hard to find: good design, simple to use, carry-on size, high quality materials, and a sleek look. It's hard to express how much I love this bag. It's worth every penny.

Best of all!

I have this bag since 1 ½ year and it’s really a good one (been to Asia (2 times) and Africa with it). Yes, it is expensive but in my opinion, it’s better to invest in a good quality product that will last longer than a cheaper one that you will have to invest again in a few years (you will have paid probably more at the end). It fits under the seat in the plane even though it is a bit longer than what I expected but it’s still very good. When travelling, I don’t search for my things a long time: the compartments are well designed and everything is easy to reach. My husband bought the Aer and, I find the Minaal much better – For example, the zippers are smoother and seems a better quality.

Gotten this bag few months back.
To-date it had been travelling with me for more than 10 countries.
