Covered by Minaal's Lifetime Warranty

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.

"The Best Yet" - Minaal customer since 2014

This is the best Minaal yet—the little details make all the difference. I own the 1.0, have gifted the 2.0, and now have the 3.0. Basically they fixed the little annoyances and upgraded things I didn't know I wanted. They upgraded the laptop harness and makes it accessible from either direction. The passport hidden pocket has spoiled me. And don't get me started on those zippers—my original have taken eight years of abuse with never a tear nor a problem. Bottom line: the 3.0 is worth it.

Stellar - Big enough to travel endlessly, small enough to fit everywhere

Seriously glad I found this bag! I've been travelling non-stop for the past year to over 10 countries and this has come with everywhere without complaining on being shoved into tight spots, dropped onto pavements/rocks/dusty floors, and overloaded (gotta bring back gifts!).

The pockets are cleverly designed, and there always seems to be a little extra nook that you can take advantage of.

I love the laptop section and that I don't need to worry about it smashing to pieces. I love the hidden pocket on the back where I can keep extra money, passport, and other valuables (please don't rob me!).

I'll admit I was a little hesitant to purchase at first due to the price but I'm so happy I did because this truly feels like a bag for life (not-withstanding their incredible life-time guarantee).

Bravo minaal team, truly stellar product!

Fantastic and sleek!

Got the full boat… Its like a magic trick how much I can get in the carry on bag. Packed out vs my Peak Design bag…dont get it!
Slimmer sleeker and lighter. Comfortable and laptop solution is next level. Customer service was excellent too! Highly recommend especially if flying airlines that are strict on carry on weight.
Would like to see garment folder maybe in dyneema? Just trying to save more weight lol.
Very Happy with my purchases.

The best travel backpack

minaal carry-on is the backpack that gave me the best travel experience in Japan recently.
It was very convenient when traveling around the city.

A Really Great Travel Companion

Having taken this bag on its first travel adventure, I must say that it makes a great companion as a carry-on bag and for walking around from location to location. The design is well thought out, materials are high quality and there is just enough organisation. The internal lap-top cradle is a game changer - accidentally dropped the bag from a height with no adverse effect. My only minor gripe is the detachable waste strap (which you need with a heavy load) is not included and sold separately - come on guys - why not go the extra mile when everything else is so great? Did not deduct a star for this - but could have done!

10 years strong!

I'm writing this as i sit at the airport waiting on the adventure bus.

I bought the first edition of the Minaal bag about 10 years ago. I've packed my life in this bag too many times to count, and yet even after all this time - not a single rip or tear. The rubber tips for the zipper pullstrings came off a couple years ago but were easily replaced with some homebrew.

If i had the spare change, i would absolutely pick up the 3.0. I recommend minaal bags to everyone i talk to that plans on travelling like i do, with just carry-ons.

Thanks to the minaal team for the excellent work on their original bag.

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’.





“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.

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.

Some things are worth protecting.

"I love risking my $2,000 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.









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.

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.

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!"


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.


We make opinionated gear, because we live on the road and we know what it takes. Not for everyone – perfect for us.


Unlike most luggage, we design with *international* carry-on size limits in mind. Because your life doesn’t stop at the border.


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.


We’re 100% community-funded, without any crazy investor growth expectations. That means we’re with you for the long term.


We’re a Triple Bottom Line company, meaning we act on wider, more sustainable guiding principles: People, Planet, and Progress.


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.


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.


When you invest in a Minaal, you’re getting more than just a product. We're happy to help and always just an email away.


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.
