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.

I’m flight crew and use it to look sharp at work and easy during the layovers.

Best travel gear ever! After lots of broken suitcases it was about time to change for something new - I started off with the Daily as a flight kit. After five years of heavy usage it is still in good shape so I decided to get the Carry-On 2.0 as well, which I now use as my primary bag. Finally no more broken shell, no more waiting at the belt and no hustle finding a spot in the overhead bin. Thanks Minaal, you are matchless.


The Carry-On 2.0 is simply outstanding, but then I was expecting that.

All my interactions with the Minaal staff were tremendous and left me with feeling that I was dealing with a company that thought of me as a family member, I was not expecting that...

I don't think that I am your typical Minaal customer. I am not a digital nomad, remote worker, or leisure traveler in search of adventure for weeks/months at a time.

Instead, I am a fifty-two year old professional who frequently travels for work. My business trips usually last from 4 to 10 days and take me all over the US and the world.

In any case, the Carry-On 2.0 and the Toolcase have streamlined my business trips beyond my wildest expectations. Now I flow efficiently through the airport with my clothes, computer and electronics on my back, but then still appear as a professional when I meet my clients after I have left my clothes back in the hotel.

Who says that an old dog can't learn new tricks???

Game Changer

Getting into a couple of 2.0s, it was quickly apparent to us that this is a product designed artfully for ease of travel. Construction of the bag is solid, materials are of fantastic quality, and fully-loaded it seats itself comfortably to one's upper back. With laptop, dopp kit and 4 days of clothing (to include snivel gear, alternate shoes and all necessary charging devices), the heaviest of our 2.0s came in at 12kg; we've had zero issues with airline size or weight restrictions traveling extensively throughout the Americas and Japan. This is a great product! Thank you to the guys and gals at Minaal for revolutionizing our travel experience!

Best bag, best customer support

This is the best backpack I have ever used. It is the kind of product that can be brought to all kinds of adventures and always be cleaned up afterwards to look like new. And when the zippers broke randomly while I unzipped the bag on a normal work day, the customer support team helped me beyond expectations!

The best travel bags

Amazing travel bags and accessories to match! It’s designed with every travellers needs in mind and the functionality is excellent. Can’t recommend Minaal highly enough.
