    Day Pack Mini

    The majority of our materials are made from recycled PET bottles. We use a PFC-free, environmentally friendly water-repellency coating on our fabrics. 

    The difference between our fabrics is mainly in the look and feel. Our first fabric (Black and Sand variants) has a rather natural, canvas-like look. It feels thinner.

    In the Sleek Black variant, the fabric has a smooth look. It feels a little thicker and rubbery.

    The Sleek Black is a little easier to clean due to its smooth texture and water rolls off more easily - on the other hand, it is more prone to superficial scratches and dents or cuts, which remain visible in the long term on such smooth fabrics.

    As far as protecting the contents of the backpack from moisture is concerned, there is no difference between the two versions, as both fabrics are waterproof. It is always important to remember that after prolonged exposure to heavy rain, moisture can seep through the seams and zips of backpacks.

    Main Fabric

    • 100% Polyester (91% recycled, 100% for the Sleek Black version)
    • 600 x 600 Denier
    • PFC-free coating (outside) and PU coating (inside) for waterproofing
    • Sourced from bluesign® System Partner
    • 100% Polyester (100% recycled), 150 x 150 Denier
    • PFC-free coating (outside) and PU coating (inside) for waterproofing
    • Sourced from bluesign® System Partner
    • Outside: Durable YKK Natulon® luggage coil zippers (partly recycled)
    • Outside: Weatherproof PU coating on back pocket to protect valuables
    • Inside: YKK Natulon® coil zippers (partly recycled)
    • Sourced from bluesign® System Partner
    • Recycled plastic (black version), sourced from bluesign® System Partner
    • Durable aluminium hook for roll top closure
    • Diagonal twill webbing
    • 100% Nylon (100% recycled)

    Does the sand colour get dirty easily?
    No, it does not stain easily, however, dark stains are more visible than on the black version. Good to clean. Fine for everyday use. Attach rain cover when exposed to heavy rain, dirt, oil or dust. (read more)

    How should I clean the WayksOne?
    We recommend hand wash only. If necessary use gentle soap and brush. Dry well. (read more)

    Its a good one!

    This is a great backpack. It is lightweight, which makes it feel great to wear. It is spacious and has plenty of storage space. I use it all the time. Really great!

    Gutes Konzept aber schlechte Verarbeitung

    Finde das Konzept wie der Rucksack aufgebaut ist super. Die perfekte Größe für den Arbeitsalltag oder Tagesausflüge. Jedoch beginnt ein Träger schon nach ein paar Mal Tragen oben vom Rucksack abzureißen - es ist leider nicht sehr gut vernäht. Hätte mir eine viel bessere Qualität erwartet…

    Es tut uns sehr leid, dass du einen Rucksack mit einem Produktionsfehler erhalten hast. Dafür übernehmen wir natürlich die Verantwortung und haben dir eine Email geschrieben, um die Lösung des Problems zu koordinieren.

    my favorite backpack I've ever owned!

    Okay, so here's a little story time.

    My previous backpack was a real lucky thriftstore find. Just the right size, fit me perfectly and held a lot of my stuff. I loved that thing so much that I used it until it literally fell to pieces. Knowing I needed a new one I went on a search for months for another backpack that ticked all the boxes and was about to give up because everything was either too big, too small, not my style etc.

    That's when I saw a WAYKS ad for this day pack mini. To be honest I loved the sleek, functional design and the fact that it's made from recycled materials. Also, yay small businesses. However, after the many dissapointments on my search, I was hesitant to order it online without trying it on so that took me a few months. All the while still taking my old, raggedy backpack to work (embarrassing!).

    All that to say, I am so happy that I finally went for the WAYKS day pack mini. It is the perfect size for my daily work commute and for day trips to different places. The quality is really good and it feels so sturdy! All the extra pockets inside also make for great organization, which I love. I wish I would've made this purchase sooner and will surely get additional packs for longer travel.

    It might sound like I'm exaggerating, but for me something like a backpack is such a necessary, staple item that it needs to be perfect in order for me to be content and with this beautiful product I'm still happy after owning it for 3 months now.

    Day pack for everyday use

    The pack is very comfortable, it fits all needs and is really versatile. I love it! I love WAYKS <3

    Sehr praktischer Rucksack

    Super verarbeitet und sehr praktisch - nur schade, dass nicht die Möglichkeit besteht auch einen Brustgurt anzubringen

    Best bags I ever had

    I confess: I am a bag junkie. Whenever something promises to be versatile, practical, multifunctional, and not too bad ecologically, I need it.
    The WAYKS series is my therapy! Since I bought, one by one, the whole series (I wanted different fabrics/colours for the single items), plus a lot of extra straps to customize how I am wearing them - I haven´t even thought about buying another. Incredible! These bags are indeed extremely versatile, and they offer a lot more detail than visible on first sight, even here on the page, from hiding places for all zippers and straps when not in use to even more extra pouches and thoughtful linings. For the first time ever, I have the feeling someone designed a bag series to wear them theirselves. I have used them for long and short trips, for work, gym, and I never leave home without either the pouch or the sling or both. Love love love!

    Schnelle und unkomplizierte Lieferung! Absolut Praktisch im Alltag ! Sehr gute Qualität! Habe zuvor das Day Pack gekauft .

    Super schöne Qualität, nicht ganz passend für meinen Gebrauch

    Qualitativ echt top! Im Handling auch praktisch mit dem Rolltop und zusätzlich dem Reißverschluss falls das Rolltop nicht gebraucht wird. Auch die Aufteilung der Fächer find ich gut!

    Leider rutschen die Träger immer wieder von den Schultern. (Bin 172cm groß und habe recht muskulös Schultern...)

    Außerdem ist er für meinen Gebrauch am Boden zu wenig tief. Ich nehme ihn für die Arbeit und meine Essenboxen muss ich fast immer aufgestellt reingeben da sie sonst nicht reinpassen. Was das Auslaufrisiko halt erhöht. Generell einen Tick größer von allen Seiten wäre für mich passender gewesen.

    Die Oberfläche der sleek black Version gefällt mir super! Passt überall gut dazu. Und kann man easy abwischen wenns mal schmutzig wird.

    Der all-in-one

    Einfach ein sorgfältig, durchdachtes System das im Alltag sowie beim Reisen unglaublich nützlich ist! Danke.

    What Our Customers Say

    Ich habe mich sehr gut über euer Produkt informiert und bin trotzdem von vielen Details überrascht. Ich kann nicht glauben, wie viel Liebe zum Detail in diesem Rucksack steckt! Ich möchte meinen größten Respekt für so ein durchdachtes Produkt zeigen. Ich studiere Kommunikationsdesign und weiß wie viel Arbeit in den manchmal unscheinbarsten Dingen steckt, die sich jemand überlegt und die dann einfach intuitiv für möglichst viele Leute funktionieren sollen. Deshalb bin ich umso beeindruckter von dem, was ihr mit dem Wayks One geschaffen habt.
