Minaal Carry-On Bag
You can check a bag if you want, especially if you need to bring dive gear or plan to smuggle antiquities. But the idea here is water, beach, and sun. Fortunately, Minaal has made the most practical and best looking carry-on yet — perfect for any adventure.
The Minaal Carry-On Bag is a backpack but with easily concealable straps if you want a sleeker duffel. It unzips fully for easy lie-flat packing and is made of tough cordura fabric in a sharp, clean design that is equally suited for business. With a long list of features like a lockable and protected device compartment, zip-away straps, and an easy pull-on rain cover, it's brilliantly designed. It holds more than a rolling bag with no space wasted on wheels, and fits carry-on dimensions for all major airlines. No need to try rolling a bag over cobblestones or up a muddy island path — just grab the handle or throw it on your back. [$299; minaal.com]
