I bought it as a gift for my boyfriend because he is commuting weekly to a very distant university (~600km). Since about two months, the backpack is on tour with him and he is very happy with it. The packing bags I first thought he'd probably not use are also his favourite. Overall, a perfectly designed combination of luggage that so far has met every need. :-)
Great design and multifunctional. Thanks a lot!
The Globetrotter Bundle Original
Here is my review after a couple of months using the bag :
First I want to say that this bag is great! I really like it and I think I have found my one-bag-does-all backpack. But there is always room foir improvement of course :
- What I like : the style, the overall light weight, the nice linen-inspired fabric, the light internal colour for visibility, the multiple ways to access the main compartment, the rolltop expandability, the many ways to close the top, the volume (it really works as well as a daypack as a travel bag), the comfort and breathability of the back panel, the ability to install a hip strap even without the cube, the large size of side pockets (I can even fit a bottle with a handle).
- What I would improve : The shoulder straps are a bit stiff for the moment, (I guess they will soften with time) and could really be wider. I had to sew a little loop inside the top of one of the side pockets to hang my keys. I think you could manufacture it easily. The internal mesh pockets could offer a bit more space (but maybe they will soften with time too). The main handle is not easily accessible, I would sew it higher or facing up, not down. I would add another one somewhere on the side. The external side pockets cut a bit too much into the internal volume. I would sew a couple of molle-style loops on the outer front and also inside the bag, in order to hang the sling mini and add additionnal storage/organisation options. The external pockets (wallet and passport), are a bit small and hard to use. For strap keepers I would use velcro instead of elastic fabric. And cherry on the cake, I would use a fidlock opening for the sternum strap.
But I am really going into the details ; overall the bag is already awesome and already very well thought.
Habe mit das Travel Bundle Original für meine Motorradtour durch Afrika gekauft.
Der Kram hat echt gut gehalten, überlebte Stürze mit lediglich leichten Beschädigungen und der Rucksack ließ sich sehr gut packen.
Bin super zufrieden und würde mir das Bundle jederzeit wieder kaufen.
Versatile, comfortable and stylish!!
Perfect for backpackers like me 💪🏻😎☀️
Initially I had some issues with recieving the package, but the customer service were extremely helpful and I got the product eventially. I haven't been able to use it more than a few times, but I already love all of it! The only regret I have is that I didn't purchase the bigger bundle, because I already think that I would love to have those additions as well!
I love the bag. It’s great for every day commuting, and longer trips as well. The bag looks quite small but fits quite a lot, so it’s fantastic. I love the modularity of the backpack - it’s definitely worth reading the manual to figure out all the tips and tricks!
I have the chance to use the backpack for a one-week trip as soon as I got it, here’s my experience with Wayks one:
With Cube it fits the overhead compartment on the plane. Quick laptop access is super convenient during security check. Shoulder straps are sooooo comfortable (thank you Wayks for choosing the soft fabric not the webby one which irritates my skin). I put shoes at the bottom zipper which turns out to be my favorite feature. The sturdy back panel helps my documents not getting crushed on the corners. The volume is just amazing and the Cube does keep my valuable souvenirs safe and sound.
I am a little worried about one thing, when the top is rolled and when the backpack is full, the zipper seam seems to be having high tension and looks as if it can break after longer use. My old backpack have this kind of problem so I’m a bit concerned. Overall this backpack has been great! If I have to name one thing that I don't enjoy so much it would be the zipper pulls. To me, they can be bigger and thicker.
I feel so thankful to Leonie, Fabian, and their team for creating such unique products that offer versatility, sustainable & high-quality materials, and a beautiful minimalistic design. Packing for one month trip became enjoyable due to the many features for a clever organization.
I love how the backpacks, cube (exactly what I needed for my camera), and sling combo are all so thoughtfully manufactured that you can transform them based on different needs, experiences, and levels of comfort.
I find WAYKS the perfect balance of innovation, practicality, and style. highly recommended!
