With ideas borne from endless hours spent in transit, business meetings, and the back seat of a tuk-tuk, Minaal is a travel gear company aiming to make your travels faster, happier and more productive. They lead the fight against the evil ‘Travel Drag’, which they define as “Anything that slows you down, mentally or physically, from reaching your destination.” With this mindset they have brought the Minaal Daily 2.0 to the world.
Minaal Daily 2.0
In creating streamlined, stylish, yet practical gear, Minaal is drawing on the founders’ combined experience growing up in the varied climates of New Zealand, then working from the road, around the globe. They aim to attract the ‘ProTraveller’ (that’s ‘ProTraveler’ for you Americans) – the dedicated traveller who wants to remain professional on the road, instead of looking like a backpacker.
The first product was a Carry-on bag that opens flat and allows you to pack it like a suitcase. In addition, you can easily access your gear from any angle; the main straps zip away within seconds, leaving you with a sleek duffel-style bag; the separate device compartment protects electronics and is lockable, and the bag fits within regular carry-on dimensions.
The second release is the Minaal Daily 2.0 bag, a smaller bag optimized for everyday use. It’s an everyday backpack with an easy-hide strap system, meaning you transition effortlessly into formal mode. Works as both a backpack and a secondary personal item when flying. Fits inside the laptop compartment of its bigger brother, the Carry-on. Minimalist design with rugged outdoor components – a seam-sealed raincover, 600D Nylon core fabric, and custom molded-foam backing panel for comfort.
Minaal is always developing new products for their community, but they’re super secret and we can’t tell you about them unless you leave $100 in unmarked bills in a brown paper bag at the intersection of Av Rivadavia and Campichuelo in Buenos Aires (directions available on request).
