We offer a lifetime guarantee against all manufacturing defects. If your gear has a defect, we’ll send you a replacement or organise a repair – anywhere in the world.

This second paragraph is where some companies might list their endless conditions, exclusions, and sub-clauses to their reckless first sentence. But we’re big believers in common sense – a defect is a defect – and we won’t use legal jargon as a rock to hide under when you come knocking. Problems with our gear are incredibly rare, but we know how good it feels to have a solid warranty backing you up when you’re on the road. If any of our gear falls short of our high quality-control standards, we’ll make it right.

Ultimately, any gear that takes a severe beating over a long period of time will eventually show signs of wear and tear. This isn’t considered a defect – but drop us a line if you’re in doubt, and we’ll be straight with you either way.

If you're in the U.S. and want to request a warranty refund or replacement, you can do it here.

If you live outside the U.S. and have a warranty issue, it's best to contact us directly.

Traveling the world

I bought this bag so that I could travel the world primarily using just a backpack. After much research I went with the minaal. Glad I did because I can fit a lot into it and it's still fairly comfortable to wear. It's sturdy and so far has been with me for 1.5 years of regular use. I like the minimalist style and color. I also like the area where I pack my laptop, ipad, notebook, and charging brick. Easy to get to and I know everything is snug and safe.

No need for other bags

This bag has been my only travelling bag since I got it over a year ago. Perfect for both business trips and holidays. It’s very easy to pack and get things e.g. laptop and papers out without need to spread the contents all over the place. I’ve found this handy especially at airports and business meetings. After several different kind of trips to many kind of places my bag still looks sharp. No signs of wearing it. I can highly recommend this bag for anyone who wants to travel with carry-on bag only.

wow!

This bag has been my travel companion for the last couple of years. I have taken it as my only luggage several times for extended trips to SE Asia ... and it really holds up wonderfully. It still looks good as new, even after all the use. And the way it holds so much, so well ... it's fabulous. I can't recommend it enough ... it has changed the way I think about and experience packing and travel.

I Love This Bag for the Bigger Jobs

I have the Carry-on 2.0 and used it extensively this last winter as I traveled to San Francisco every week. On one particularly brutal week of hotel prices, I opted for an AirBnB next to Alamo Square Park. After a full day of travel and working downtown, I opted to walk to my home for the week … all 2.9 miles of the uphill trek. My pack was heavy, because it holds a lot and I hadn't yet learned how to be chill when I pack for the week. I was a little tired at the end of my hike, but I wasn't weary. The hip pads are a must. The pads plus the strap adjustment on the bag let me put the weight where it belonged. I was able to keep this bag beneath the seat in front of me on my domestic flights. It sticks out a little, but I didn't mind, and it was great not to fight for overhead bin space.

So … why only 4 stars? I save 5 stars for perfect; there are a couple nitpicks that have me pause when I decide which bag to pack. The first, and this is minor, is the bottle holder. It does its job of holding a bottle, but it's just a little weird with the elastic strap and the pocket that holds less bottle than you would think it should. The second is that once I've emptied the bag of clothes and other travel stuff and headed back to the office, it doesn't sit well. When I set the bag next to my desk it buckles under its own weight. This is annoying enough that it I have packed the Daily Bag inside so I have it for the day. However, it's a trade-off to do this. My answer was to pack less and only use the Daily Bag for weekly travel. I save the Carry-on 2.0 for bigger trips, and even then, I'm taking the daily bag with the should strap attached.

If the Carry-on 2.0 could be my daily bag, too, I would give it 5 stars. Besides that, it's perfect in every other way. Believe the other reviews!

The bag just makes sense - I've used it for both business travel and holidays.

The best feature for me has been the ability to pack the Daily bag inside the 2.0. This lets me use 1 bag for my outbound travel and then separate the two for my return travel when I usually have gifts or souvenirs.

Only tip would be to avoid using the 2.0 for bulky shoes (hiking boots) - that space is far more useful for utilising the interior pockets and compartments. Just wear boots and pack jandals/soft shoes instead.
