This review may be a bit bias, as I am a huge fan of MinaaI, The Daily was the first backpack I purchased many years ago and it the only travel backpack I use now. I do my fair share of traveling and the Daily goes with me on all my trips. It's a great backpack that fits everything. The material and design is by far top if its class, from the rain cover the the whistle on the buckle, Jimmy and his teams thought of everything. If you are looking for a Daily backpack or travel backpack, buy the Daily!
I'm a full time student in college and also work part time. So, I don't normally have loads of time to travel so what I was looking for was a bag that would be easy to throw around, be able to carry my laptop and books, be durable, all while being able to look clean and sophisticated while going to classes at a good price. This bag without a doubt checks all of those boxes and more. Firstly, the bag is a tad bit smaller than most average bags, but holds just as much if not more. I have been able to fit a sweater, my books, my laptop, my water bottle, pens and pencils, headphones, in the bag and although it puffs out it still is small and easy to carry, my one complaint here is that I wish the back padding was just a touch more comfortable. Secondly, I've had this bag for a year now and this bag is an actual tank. I go through the rain, snow, dry heat all within a year and this thing just doesn't scratch. The bag still looks brand new and I still haven't even needed to use the water cover that's attached to the bag because the bag itself is stupid durable and keeps water out like a charm. Lastly, this bag is simply beautiful. Anytime I want to say minimal I almost always end up saying Minaal because of how sleek yet stunning this bag is. The clean exterior to the ability to organize and hold everything you need on the interior blows me away everytime I grab the strap and put it on my back. I am a college student so I wanted a bag that could last a long time and take a beating all while being able to carry all of my daily school supplies in a simple yet stunning bag at a premium price, the Minaal Daily Carry 2.0 easily my favorite bag I have ever owned and I can guarantee anyone who ends up owning this bag will feel the same because you can recognize the love and care that went into designing this bag the moment you put it on your back.
I finally pulled the trigger on the Daily after some months of heavy consideration, I was glad I finally did!
Just the right size for an EDC with thoughtful features and reliable quality materials.
It is my daily driver now and I couldn't be happier.
Cheers to the Minaal Team and looking forward to your future products :)
I've had this bag since the Kickstarter. I **STILL** use it daily. It's amazing. I literally just found out it had a rain cover :facepalm: (I needed that a few times). Fantastic quality that will last you years.
The quality is not the best. Its more a hyped product. I thought its a high quality product. In reality, it was shipped from Hongkong.
Came from Hongkong and I had to pay nearly 50% extra for tariffs. They recommended me to declare a minimum price to avoid tariffs. Of course, I did not intend to be jaled because of a backpack. So, I pad the extra of 100-150 USD.
It’s so good and durable, that I don’t need to buy another from minaal...
