This is a massive review of the Minaal Carry on Bag 1.0. I get into all the features, design, materials, etc.
I’ve used this bag for one bag travel, using all the minimal travel bag best practices, etc. And in the video I talk through all the pros and cons of this bag.
Here’s a list of things from Minaal’s website. Hope you enjoy this massive bag review 🙂
LIE-FLAT PACKING ||| So you can pack — and unpack — faster.
EASY FULL-BAG ACCESS ||| Instant access to all your gear (not just the stuff on top!) from any angle — thanks to our full-length zips.
LOCKABLE, PROTECTIVE DEVICE COMPARTMENT ||| Keep your gadgets safe, but within easy side-access reach in the separate, secure electronics compartment. Your devices are suspended in a neoprene sleeve, so no matter which way you put the bag down, your valuables won’t hit the ground.
ZIP-AWAY STRAPS ||| Rock the sleek, duffel-style look by hiding the backpack straps in under 10 seconds.
BUILT TO CARRY ON ||| Strike the perfect balance between saving money and moving fast – fits inside almost all current major airline carry-on dimensions (even Ryanair!)
IGNORE THE RAIN ||| A seam-sealed rain cover that’s easy to pull on, packs into itself and can be removed if unnecessary. It just… makes… sense.
FIT FOR YOU ||| Find your ideal position with 4-way main strap adjustment and extra-length, adjustable chest strap.
