Carry-on 3.0 Bag
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.
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!
Just spent two weeks testing the 30L backpack on a trip to many parts of Ukraine. The backpack works extremely well. It is very easy to get stuff out without opening everything up, especially the computer sleeve. Holds more than you would think. The backstraps are comfortable. Did not get a chance to try the waist strap, as the other straps did the job real well. How to make it perfect - 1 - fix the water bottle sleeve. It is too small and not as good as others. I just used a carabiner to strap the handle of the water bottle to the side carry strap of the backpack. 2 - Add a light mesh cover over the area with the packing cubes. That way, it can be opened either way. Plus, it is nice to put smaller items between the packing cubes and that would keep them in place better when opening. Regardless, it will be my go to pack for worldwide travel. Thanks!
You get what you pay for has been something I have respected as long as I can remember and while this not the cheapest pack out there it is in my opinion the best value. After much research into the multitude of brands and features available there were a few things that put this at the top. Firstly for a one bag travel contender dimensions and weight are up there in rating, box tick number one. Materials and hardware, no complaints there and then there is the design. Full clamshell, fantastic laptop storage and stowable/coverable shoulder straps which are a must to prevent snagging during transit. Finish off with the warranty and how could you say no! Looking forward to many good memories with these bags in tow.
This bag was a game-changer during my trip. Initially, I doubted its capacity and considered buying an extra smaller bag for my purchases.
However, as I used it more, it seemed to accommodate more items, including my new purchases.
I liked its simplicity and the way the straps tuck away when placing it overhead. Upon returning home, I was so impressed that I bought the smaller daily bag to complete the set.
Never had a travel back pack before and wow does it make a world of difference.
I carry a 15 inch laptop, 15 inch external monitor and external keyboard and mouse on top of all my travel gear.
Customer support is also the best of all backpack brands.
Would recommend 11/10.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!"

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.
