A bag with a cult following.

After the original bag appeared in the documentary, Minimalism, Malcolm Fontier and The Minimalists received thousands of vocal requests to bring the bag back. In 2017, they teamed up with Sprout Studios and videographer Matt D'Avella to introduce a new, improved version – The One. With the help of nearly 7,000 backers and $2M later, the bag was successfully crowdfunded, and a brand was born.

Just As Advertised!

I spotted the Pakt One bag on The Minimalists' documentary a few years ago. I am certain i just googled "bag on the minimalist documentary." Crazy how quickly I was able to find it, as it has quite a following. I purchased one a few years back on a whim and decided I couldn't justify the purchase, but now that I am traveling an hour to and from work and live 2500 miles from my home, I thought it would be a good fit. The guide that comes with suggested items in suggested compartments was very resourceful. And I watched a few reviews on YouTube when it arrived. You can tell that much time and care was invested in the design. Thank you so much from Yellowstone!!!!

5 day Test trip

I took a short trip with my new bag and was surprised that I was able to pack enough clothes for 7 days. I over packed on purpose to see if I could use this bag for minimalist travel. I plan on purchasing the Pakt backpack for future long term travel.

Just perfect!

Great bag. Customer service was on point, I couldn’t track my order, and they kept me updated on the tracking process. Response time was super quick! I will definitely be ordering the coffee set in the future along with some packing cubes for the duffel!

Great bag

After buying this bag you solve one decision in your life for long term 👍
