I’ve been using this daily for about a month, and I’ve also taken it across the US and across the ocean to Europe. I’m very happy with its size, weight, internal design and carrying comfort. The fact that it packs down nearly flat is a big plus for me, as its convertibility to briefcase form. Minor issues: the snap button on the top back could be stronger; strap management could be more comprehensive (I added some bands made from bicycle inner tubes here and there); the white logo is a bit glaring (I painted it black).
I looked far and wide for a backpack that would suit all my needs and ran accross a review of this one that eventually made me want to try it out. I love the Daily 3.0 so much, that I also got the Carry On and most accessories. This is the kind of brand that you want to use for life.
It would be nice to be able to keep a water bottle on the outside. Also, a more hidden document pocket would be very useful.
I had high hopes and had done my investigation up front and Minaal delivers as promised. My backpack is of superb quality and does everything as expected.
It just works. No surprises, in build quality, or materials.
After two weeks of traveling with the Daily 3.0 Bag, I continue to be surprised at the many thoughtful features that have come in very handy day after day. There’s always a pocket, strap, slip, or clip that perfectly fits where I need something to go. It holds just enough for a light round of shopping and I feel confident the zippers and lining won’t pop. And it's pretty stylish! I love this bag.
