  • Protects up to 16" laptops in its shock-proof DeviceNest™

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.

Absolutely perfect, well thought-out design.

It knew what I needed before I did. Sturdy but nice to the touch. It’s been a pleasure to trek for a month with it. My tech safe and sound. I’m thinking of getting the daily backpack when I get home.

Perfect travel pack

This pack is as close to perfect as any product I owe.

I’m very satisfied with my Minaal Carry-On 3.0 & I saved money on the accessories buying the Flashpacker Bundle. So far everything is going great. I use my carry-on daily for work & personal trips mostly to carry clothes for all occasions & all of my gadgetry including my 15.4” MacBook Pro & sometimes I even carry an extra 13” Laptop for work. I like to be prepared for any activity when I’m out on the road because you never know when you’re going to close the next deal. My Minaal 3.0 Carry-On is perfect for my needs & the fact that I can travel almost anywhere in the Globe without checking in luggage is what convinced me to buy it. From my perspective, Minaal products are very well made; I highly recommend them.

Jeff W. (Portland, US)
Fanatically well designed bag.

Very clever and elegant design and space designations, and enough room for nearly everything for three days or so of travel. Only other feedback is that the bag is a bit large to fit under an airline aisle seat— but the next size down is too small. Can we split the difference?!

Bernie B. (Brighton, GB)
Business trip. Sorted.

Five day business trip in one bag. Backpack when walking. No dangly bits to get caught when putting in overhead lockers. Zip away the shoulder straps when going to meetings. Job done.

The best bag for the environment is the one that lasts the longest. That’s why Picton™ fabric – our specialist core material – not only uses recycled yarn, but gives a whole new meaning to "tough".

What else? It's sourced from a bluesign®-certified supplier. It's incredibly water-resistant. And unlike many bag fabrics, it isn't a magnet for lint or cat hair.


All our gear comes with a lifetime warranty.

We call it the Kauri Guarantee – inspired by the enormous, venerable tree of that name found in New Zealand.
