I have the black backpack for a few weeks now and I can use it almost in any situation and occasions. Only for the big travel, but then I have it with me too, because I do need a bag for the little things. I love it.
Great quality. I'm impressed with modularity
Super happy with my purchase. I use it as a daily bag for my laptop and such, and also take it for day trips / hikes. I love all of the compartments, which are SO convenient compared to other brands. One tiny small thing is I wish the reinforced backing was removable sometimes, but then again it's what make the bag super comfortable on the back on long hikes.
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a 5* review!
I did want to follow up on this though because I see that you have the Day Pack Compact. With this model, the padded back panel can indeed be removed, and you can wear this backpack with the included Simple Shoulder Straps as a much lighter and more minimal carrying mode! We have some videos about this here: https://youtu.be/ZpxyxjioR88
And you can find more information in our Manual on page 18: https://wayks.com/pages/manual

I have now used my new WAYKS bag a few times and I’m so sad the straps are such a poor quality. They are thick and hard and seems like they are made of cheap quality. They hurt my shoulders because they don’t adjust my shape the same way as thin and smooth straps.
I have tried to adjust the back, but it doesn’t help.
Beside of that it is a beautiful back with great rooms. They have thought about the functionaluty at all points than the straps. Unfortunately the straps are important for the comfort.
I hope they will make new and better straps to buy and put on.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for your WAYKS Day Pack! So sorry your experience with our shoulder straps hasn't been as comfortable as for our other customers. It's possible the padding on the straps could break in a little more after more use and become more comfortable. For customers that prefer thinner, more minimalist straps we always include a pair of Simple Shoulder Straps with our Day Packs so they can try different options.
We will take all your feedback into consideration as we continue to develop our products.
If we can ever be of assistance, just let us know :)
I gave the backback as a present and don't use it myself, but I heard only very good things about it from the giftee!
Bin aus 2 Gründen etwas sauer, erstens ist meine ewig langer review weg weil ich mich verklickt hab und zweitens weil ich so zögerlich war (weil doch sehr teuer) und mir erstmal nur den daypack compact bestellt habe...jetzt kann ich natürlich nach und nach den ganzen Rest dazubestellen. Der Rucksack ist großartig, die Reißverschlüsse aus Metall, die kleinen Fächer überall, an jedem einzelnen Gurt ist so ein kleines Gummibändchen dran mit dem man die sonst lästigen langen Gurte zusammengerollt fixieren kann, sogar der Verschluss oben hat sein eigenes kleines Häuschen in dem er verstaut werden kann wenn man ihn nicht benutzen will, an jeder Ecke ist irgendein durchdachtes, nützliches Detail- ich liebe einfach alles an ihm und nicht zuletzt die Fair Wear kontrollierte Produktionsstätte. Und weils so schön ist und Urlaubsgeld hoffentlich bald da- sind jetzt der Cube und das Accessoire-Bundle auch auf dem Weg. Wenn das Ganze jetzt auch noch seine zehn Jahre+ hält schau ich nie wieder einen anderen Rucksack auch nur an. Einzig den Laptop von der Seite in sein Fach zu fummeln braucht etwas bis man den Dreh raus hat
After months of deliberation (because I found the price quite steep), I finally made the decision to buy the Day Pack Original from Wayks. No regrets since then!
I cycle to work almost daily, and was looking for a backpack that 1) had enough space for my laptop (17+") and other stuff, 2) had a separate place for water bottles, 3) had a separate compartment for my rain suit (coat, pants and shoes) so that my backpack could stay organized and my wet clothes wouldn't mingle with my other stuff and/or stay out of the way when I didn't need them, AND 4) the backpack had to be aesthetically pleasing.
Well, I found everything and more in the Wayks backpack! The compartment that you access through the cube-zips (I bought mine without the cube) holds enough space for my rain suit to be stored, my water bottles go in the side pockets and my laptop fits. Everything is neatly hidden away in my backpack, and the color, and construction make for a stylish backpack that is also super comfortable. The several (hidden) pockets make organization a dream.
In most review videos and on the website, I couldn't really see how much could be stored in the "cube zip compartment/bag". I think that compartment was made bigger than the initial test backpack and/or altered at a certain point during production. For those who are wondering: the compartment can easily take up at least a third of the backpack when the roll top is down; it can store a pair of shoes or, in my case, a fullblown rain suit without a problem. Super nice to have that extra "bag" to compartmentalize stuff you don't need on the daily!
The attention to detail is also astounding: I love how you can shorten the straps, or how you can tuck away items on the backpack that you don't currently use.
I have gotten several compliments on the bag so far - and before I had the Wayks, so one every complimented my backpack before, haha.
I got the sand color, and so far there's not a stain on it.
I know the price is steep, which made me doubt buying the backpack, but it's worth the money!
Ich bin super zufrieden mit meinem Rucksack und würde ihn immer empfehlen. Ich hatte noch nie einen Alltagsrucksack mit so vielen praktischen Verstaumöglichkeiten. Insbesondere die kleinen "versteckten" Taschen für Wertsachen sind extrem praktisch, um schnell an Geldbeutel/Handy/Schlüssel zu kommen. Auch Notebooks sind gut geschützt. Selbst schwer bepackt lässt sich der Rucksack sehr angenehm tragen und wirkt nicht allzu groß. Ich freue mich, dass ich mich für einen so hochwertigen und wahrscheinlich langlebigen Begleiter entschieden habe.
I was looking for a backpack that I could use for work and travel and came across this one. I love its sleek, minimal look that makes it look good for work. I also love that it is expandable which is perfect for traveling. I have it with me now on a trip through Spain and Portugal and it fits so much and has stayed very clean. I would definitely recommend this backpack!
