Flashpacker Bundle 3.0 | Pre-Order

363 USD 437 USD
Color: Aoraki Black

Save an additional $30 by pre-ordering from our next batch, shipping early 2023 (March at latest, likely earlier). You can adjust your order or cancel for free at any time before then.

If you'd prefer to get a bundle immediately, we still have some of our current stock here.


The Flashpacker bundle includes a Carry-on 3.0, Attachable Hip Pads 3.0, and Packing Cubes 3.0. Equally at home in airport terminals, cobbled streets, or mountain trails, the Flashpacker keeps you ready for anything.


The Carry-on 3.0 is the long-awaited successor to the 2.0 — and we’re seriously excited about it. The tech compartment now opens flat. Rugged new zippers and pull tabs also make it even easier to open/close, even when it’s tightly packed. The bottle holder is elasticated to open wider, fitting a wider variety of bottle shapes and sizes.


Our attachable hip pads add extra points of support to your bag. If you're into spontaneous hikes — or like to take extra weight off your shoulders when you explore a new city — these hip pads are for you. Clip them to your Carry-on's purpose-built loops, then remove them to minimize weight whenever they're not needed. The 3.0 version of the Hip Pads has been rebuilt from the inside out, for an incredibly comfortable carry.


Fit more stuff into less space with these feather-light packing cubes. Add functionality to your bag by compressing your clothing and keeping everything firmly in place. Pack and unpack with lightning speed, make the most of your bag's capacity, and organize your essentials by dividing them among different cubes. The 3.0 version of the Cubes has a tri-color logo to help you organize your stuff and see at a glance which cube you need.

"The Best Yet" - Minaal customer since 2014

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.

Stellar - Big enough to travel endlessly, small enough to fit everywhere

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!

Livin on a prayer, livin of a backbag

It's great! I've been and am planning on living of the Carry-On v3 for the next 3 months at least.
It's extremely thought out, surprising me with little details when I least expect it, like all the smaller pockets being accessible without taking it off from your back.

The support and communication is fantastic as well, I feel there's a lot of pride taken in building these backbags and I felt that during any support I got.

Go no further!

I bought my first Minaal carry-on several years ago. It has circled the globe a dozen times in my hands and a few more with other family members. It is so cleverly designed and well constructed I thought I would never be able to justify getting another. It looks like new. Then I spied the 3.0 bag. Finally an excuse to get another! It is a little larger and unsurprisingly the design has undergone a few refinements over the years. I use them both and just can’t overstate my satisfaction with these Minaal products. They are truly in a class of their own - just wish I wish I could keep my relatives’ hands off them when I turn my back!

Stellar travel backpack

Great travel backpack. Feels high quality. Was a great decision to buy the bundle with the waist strap and packing cubes, both of which have worked well.

I picked the Carry On 3.0 over other similar backpacks primarily because:
* It’s lighter
* Straps can be stowed away and bag can be carried using the side handle

Things I found:
* Packing into the scoop takes a bit of getting used to
* Scoop zipper was a bit stiff initially but has eased up since
* My bottle is a snug fit in the holder and I find it hard to put it into the bottle holder with the bag on my back. Need another pair of hands or have to take the bag off
* Waist strap doesn’t have a separate compartment. I usually stow it away with the straps

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.
