+ Looks good - sleek, minimal design/branding, smooth
+ Functional - well thought-out, organized, works great with shirt protector, packing cubes, and dopp
+ Just the right size - never been rejected from an airline (even if they enforce 7kg)
+ Amazing quality + company stands by warranty/community
+ Versatile - great for long-term travel, daily business, or hiking
+ I love this bag/company as they are consistently crushing it
I bought the original Minaal Carry-On as it was sleek, spacious for one bag travel, and seemed durable. It was the best bag I have ever owned with a great balance of space/organization/durability. Even better is the Carry-On bag has only gotten better with each revision. I have lived out of the Carry-On 2.0 for the last two years and it has seen every environmental condition and held up great. I have never not been able to be carry-on to an airline/ferry/jump of a boat/run and catch a bus/etc. Minaal as a company has been awesome from warranty to listening to the community.
Clip on a Matador FreeRain 24 waterproof ultralight daypack and add a Mack Weldon Dopp + Vapur waterbottle and you will be unstoppable.
