We really enjoyed our SA and Thailand trip with our Wayks bags.
We found the different storage areas very convenient , it was a pleasure to repack every 3 days.
The compression bags are really a must, in combination with these from travel monkey, you can organize the bags perfectly.
Next to handy they are also super beautiful ....
The WAYKS backpack has become an indispensable companion for my wife and me during our travels. Its well-designed pockets offer excellent organization, striking the perfect balance between spaciousness and practicality. The backpack's optimal size makes it versatile for different trips, and its swift delivery only added to our satisfaction with the purchase.
Gifting this backpack to my wife for New Year's was a joy, and her positive experience with its style and functionality reinforces our recommendation for fellow travelers. The WAYKS backpack is a reliable and efficient choice for those seeking comfort in a compact design.
Thank you, Leonie & Fabian! :-)
Verarbeitetung ist top. Auch mag ich die helle Farbe. Die Stabilität + Tragegefühl der Rucksäcke ist auch sehr gut, wenn sie schwer gefüllt sind.
A very versatile combo of bags for longer and shorter trips. Really comfortable and the materials used are wonderful!
What can I say? It's comfortable, stylish, functional. I've also gotten many compliments on it.
Overall a great bag :)
Pros: good materials
Intelligent Hidden pockets,
Good packing cubes
Here is the problem: it's really not comfortable to wear the backpack fully loaded for a longer time.
The detachable bag at the bottom is a nice idea but it makes the backpack really uncomfortable to wear because the backpack is not in one piece and therefore lacks stability. It gave me a lot of backpain when I had to carry it for several hours for the first time. Now I am seriously considering buying a trolly for my backpack.
The backpack is very minimal and you can't really extend it much. If it is full it is quite hard to close the zipper
The hip strap is attached to the detachable part. So if I want to only use the upper part I don't have a hip strap.
The hip strap doesn't have any cushioning in the front which makes the backpack even less comfortable to wear. Overall I would say its a nice idea and if you have a lot of camera gear and want to use the cube for that its an OK choice.
But if you are looking for a long-term travel backpack that's adapting to your needs and is also comfortable to carry around do look further.
Thanks a lot for your purchase and your feedback. We are glad that you like the materials, pockets, and packing cubes, but sorry to hear that the backpack is not comfortable enough for you.
Hopefully, the following information can help to improve your experience and make it as comfortable for you as for most of our customers.
I first wanted to double check if you noticed all adjustment options described on pages 8-15 of our manual (https://wayks.com/pages/manual) to ensure the best possible fit to your body.
The rigidity of the Cube should usually help to transfer weight from the shoulders/back to the hips quite effectively. It is critical to pull the hip belt quite tight for this.
If you want to use the belt on the Day Pack, so when the Cube is not attached, you can detach the waist belt (the straps) from the hip belt padding and attach them to the loops on the Day Pack. It is also possible to keep the hip belt padding attached and hook it into the loops on the Day Pack, however, this may only work well for you if your torso is quite short. It is not designed for that but we know that some customers are using the padded hip belt on the Day Pack and it is working well for them, so it may be worth a try.
If besides the roll top, further capacity/extendability is required for your needs, you could attach your Day Pack Mini to the Travel Backpack with our Mat Strap to gain another 12L.
I hope the above is helpful to enjoy your Travel Backpack more and have lots of fantastic trips with it.

Came along Wayks in 2020 via kickstarter. Back then I ordered the „sling bag Combo“, which accompanied me almost every day since then. That is why I finally (after thinking it over, measuring my laptop and looking at my frustratingly too big collection of backpacks) decided to purchase the „Travel Bundle Original“ at a special offer. It is pricey, but the sling back combo persuaded me in quality, modularity and flexibility. Beside that it also looks great.
First the travel backpack felt a bit stiff for my daily use and heavier than expected. But then I removed the padded backpart and attached the smaller straps. Now it’s perfect for going to the office with my laptop, food and more in it or for example for doing the weekend grocery shopping. I love how sleek it looks and that I can open it completely like a suitcase.
It also took me a while to discover and use the special pockets etc. though I watched the videos before.
The only thing, I am not used to yet: the backpack does not stand stable on its own. And when it is leaned to a wall or table leg it often falls to the front or slides away.
But this is only a small thing.
I recommend this backpack to people who regularly use backpacks and don’t want several for different things, but one for all (city, work, freetime, outdoors, traveling). I think it is worth its money. Also: you support a small business which focuses on sustainability and fair production.
I am still happy every time I put it on my shoulders.
The travel bundle looks good and is very handy. It is also easy to use and durable. I appreciate its spaciousness, versatility and that it can be overpacked. It has multiple functions, which is great. I have used it when travelling, shopping and carrying sport gears, for example. However, it is from the heavier end, particularly with the cube, so I would not recommend it for those who wish for a lightweight backpack for long hikes.
All in all, the bundle forms a great multipurpose backpack. I also appreciate that it is ecological and that the production team thinks about the workers and the environment. Thanks Wayks for the great backpack!
Mit dem unglaublich durchdachten Rucksack-Set hatten wir immer den richtigen dabei! Mal in klein, mal den großen, mal das komplette Set in einem! Super empfehlenswerter Rucksack!
I was searching for the perfect bag for a long time, and then I found Wayks. I was a little nervous as it was an online purchase and I like seeing the products I buy before getting them but I couldn’t be happier. I went for the globetrotter bundle as I’m planning to travel around a lot next year and was actually looking for a couple of different sized bags. I’m a photographer and travelling with equipment is always challenging. I am so so so excited to start travelling with my Wayks bundle, it is everything I wanted and more!
