You encounter a range of environments every day — and the Daily 3.0 is built with all of them in mind. It’s never been easier to hustle between the train, the gym, and the office: a new snap system for hiding the shoulder straps means you can instantly switch between regular backpack mode and ultra-professional briefcase mode.

The new Unified Harness shoulder straps are crazy comfortable — making it that much easier to walk across the city with your laptop. And our all-new Picton fabric is better at withstanding rough terrain (it’s 22% more resistant to tearing) as well as things like cat hair or construction dust (it's extra lint-resistant, too).

We’ve made dozens of other improvements to the previous version, which you can read about in detail here. Years of testing and thoughtful user feedback have contributed to a revamped design that makes being on the move even easier, faster, and more enjoyable than before. Rush-hour transit, spontaneous weekend getaway, or paired with the Carry-on 3.0 — it’s your ideal everyday companion.

Daily 3.0 Bag

Excellent EDC and minimal one bag for short trips

I've had the daily 3.0 for 2 years now and have used it as my daily carry to/from office, as well as for business travel for 1-2 night trips. I enjoy its durability, minimal style, light weight, comfort, and clever features. For my purposes, the bag has the right blend of pockets on the interior but not so much forced organization. I don't use the document section much but it is nice to have and doesn't add much weight. I travel for 2 nights/3 days every other week (ORD to ATL) and the bag has been a great companion. The bag routinely gets abused, lifted by the zippers, dropped when fully loaded and has held up beautifully and shows no wear. Laptop has taken no damage in falls. With compressible packing cubes, I can get 3 days of clothes & toiletries - the 21L is deceiving. Prior to the daily 3.0 I travelled with Peak, Tortuga, and Nomatic and I greatly prefer the Minaal.

I love this backpack!

I bought the daily 3.0 after researching a lot of bags and I love it. Great quality, stylish and amazingly functional. Pockets and compartments in all the right places for everything I need. I have traveled with it over the summer and love the hidden passport pocket. The side or top access to the laptop compartment is also a useful feature and, after getting caught in a down poor a few days ago, tried out the rain cover - not something I thought I needed but great peace of mind that my laptop was completely safe. All round, a brilliant daily backpack. I bought it as part of the Business Time Bundle and the tech pouch and shirt protector are both fantastic accessories.

Great bag

I use it daily and it fits my 17" laptop which is perfect for me. It is also big enough for all the accessories with room to spare for small trips, without being too big for a daily use.
The bag is very well designed and I'm very happy with it. The only thing left to see is how long it will last but it seems durable so far.

Light! Compact! Comfortable!

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).

Really well thought out, very sturdy bag

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.

Picton™ Fabric

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.
