A must have!

I have ordered the Travel Backpack Original in black and so far I love it. I think it will be a bag I will use for the many years to come in many different situations and will make my travel life more convenient! The bag is of very high quality and I find it so practical and very well designed!
I would highly recommend!

Great purchase

I bought the globetrotter bundle and used it during my trip through Europe. I visited 3 different cities, in 10 days, on foot and I stayed in hostels. I needed something compact and light, and I loved it! I love the multi use and that it can be adjusted to my size. Thanks a lot for this high quality product you designed!! Love it!

Véronique M.

Perfect backpack with a really quality I appreciate it a lot! Thanks a lot for the fast shipping!

Sehr guter Rucksack - bisschen Feinschliff wär gut

Das Rucksacksystem gefällt mir sehr. Aber ein Paar dinge könnten noch etwas besser gelöst sein.

1. Wasserfestigkeit ohne Cover wäre nice
2. Die Stifthalter im Netz könnten auf der anderen Seite sein, damit der Griff dahin leichter fällt und es möglich ist, ohne den ganzen reißverschluss zu öffnen.
3. Der Notebook Reißverschluss reicht nur für 13“. Ich denke man könnte diesen weglassen und über den großen Reißverschluss einen seitlichen Zugriff schaffen. Aber ich denke das ist fast schon eine Philosophie-Frage.

Alles in allem ein richtig gutes System und eine tolle Experience! Weiter so!

Almost perfect

First of all, let me say, I bought this bundle after almost two years of yearning, seeing it everyday on Instagram and thinking "this is genius, this is pretty, I love this".
And it, almost, did not disappoint. The quality is very good. I love the bag, I love the color, I love the packing cubes, each has two compartments to keep your dirty and clean clothes separate, the cube inlay is very good for my camera, the bag is super cute. I love that it's made out of more than 90% of recycled materials.
However, my issue is with the straps.
I am a bigger girl, and though I'm not the biggest of sizes, I'm a EU 48/50 on the hips, most of the straps feel short. There isn't a lot missing, they still fit nicely. But I would have loved an extra 5cm on each side of the belt strap, just so I don't have to plunge to get the tips of the strap and adjust it. The Cube strap could be a little wider to ensure more comfort, especially if you wear it as a cross body bad, and again be 5cm longer. I haven't tried the shoulder straps for the day bag, but with what I saw I'm expecting them to be a bit too thin as well for me.
So far, it is my only issue with the product. I still love it, I'm happy with it and I can't wait to take it around the world, I just wish it was a bit more size inclusive :)

Très contente de mon achat, le sac est conforme à la description qui est sur le site.
Pratique, fonctionnel je suis ravie, merci.

Liebe den Rucksack

Habe den Kauf keine Sekunde bereut. Kleine Kritikpunkte wären höchstens, dass mir die Seitentaschen für Getränke zu klein sind und der MInirucksack, den ich nachgekauft habe, bisschen blöd rumbaumelt. Ansonsten bin ich sehr glücklich mit Allem! <3

Rikka E.

So far I have been very satisfied with the product! I love the variability and the practicality of the whole design and the quality of the materials seems convincing so far.


I was with The Travel Bundle just soo happy thx you so much

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.

Hanna from Würzburg, Germany, about her WayksOne

(translated) My Wayks arrived today already and I'm totally in love!

Regardless of the fact that you brought a wonderful, sustainable and so incredibly well thought-out product into the world, I would also like to thank you very much for the great customer service!

Keep it up!!

A very happy customer :)
