Meet the Pakt One. It packs like a suitcase, carries like a duffel, and travels like a pro. The One has been perfected through five+ years and hundreds of thousands of miles of global travel testing.
"Pakt could become my go-to for travel for years to come."
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.
love it! just what I was looking for
Pakt One was on my radar since its release. I loved the appeal of a well-organized, high-quality duffel bag for shorter trips. However, two days worth of clothing, a toiletries bag, and a pair of sneakers ended up too heavy for my short, petite frame. I lugged it around NYC and eventually called it quits and had to switch from walking to an Uber to get to my destination, and I’m a healthy, fit person. I will probably only be able to use this for trips where I’m driving door-to-door. I’m pretty disappointed in its lack of utility. What would make it better is this amount of organization in a backpack. But either way, I wish I could return this.
Hey Jenny! Bummed to hear that the Pakt One didn't work out for you. It definitely can get heavy depending on what you pack and how long you are carrying it. We'd recommend the Pakt Travel Backpack for a more comfortable carry through airports and longer distances. The Backpack will have those carry features that you're looking for, with a similar organization as the Pakt One Duffel (it opens like a clamshell and you can pack it as a suitcase). I know we're in touch via email so hope we can resolve this for you : )
Well thought out, well designed bag. Very easy to pack my clothes, and not having to dig around for my clothes is why this bag is well worth the money!
While I love the bag and its great look and construction, in the end it is not what I would consider an ideal airplane travel bag unless you have no problem carrying a bag the long walking distances that most major airports require. I bought the bag in hopes I would be able to forego checking a bag but it is a pain to carry rather than roll a bag thru the airport. I don't over pack and for a recent 3-day trip it was just too heavy for me to enjoy carrying. I am a small-framed woman. I really wish it had wheels. Of course I understand that would spoil the idea of a weekend bag.
On the other hand, for car trips this bag is great.
No, it does not- you would have to use a luggage strap or something similar to connect it to a rolling suitcase.
The Pakt One is not completely waterproof, but the materials are water-resistant across all colorways, and the Black Pakt One has water-resistant YKK zippers.
All colorways of the Pakt One are built to last, but the Black bag has a more technical/structured feel and is the only colorway with water resistant zippers.
We have used the Pakt One as a personal item on Spirit (and other airlines that charge for carry-ons) when it’s packed lightly. A fully stuffed Pakt One may not fit within their maximum personal item size limit.
We're glad you asked! The short version: we source quality materials and work with only top notch manufacturing partners to create a product that is going to have a long life. Check out this blog post where we go a bit more in depth.
