    Day Pack Original, Compact

    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. Therefore, we recommend using the Rain & Luggage Cover in such cases.

    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 pockets to protect valuables
    • Inside: YKK Natulon® coil zippers (partly recycled)
    • Cube attachment: Sturdy YKK VISLON® zipper
    • Sourced from bluesign® System Partner
    • Recycled plastic (black version), sourced from bluesign® System Partner
    • Durable aluminium hook for roll top closure

    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)

    very useful and good looking!

    I am using the "day pack compact" ever since I've purchased it.
    It feels good, the zippers work well and I 've even got some of the other gear to use it for more serious travelling. The whole is a very thought-through product and I'm recommending it with all my heart.

    Sehr gute Qualität, aber kein guter Sitz und zu steif

    Der Rucksack ist sehr gut durchdacht mit den vielen Details und Täschchen. Im Gegensatz zur Bewertung einer anderen Nutzerin mit gleicher Größe (1,56 m), finde ich jedoch, dass er sehr schlecht sitzt - und ich habe alles Mögliche ausprobiert. Die obere Öffnung nutze ich nicht, da ich sie zu klein finde, um ohne Mühe an den Inhalt zu gelangen. Ich öffne ihn nur mithilfe des rückseitigen Reissverschlusses, welcher allerdings an den Ecken meist hakt. Von mir leider keine Empfehlung und ich werde ihn nicht mehr nutzen.

    Hallo C.W.,

    vielen Dank, dass du dir die Zeit genommen hast, uns eine ausführliche Bewertung zu hinterlassen. Es tut uns wirklich leid, dass der Rucksack für dich nicht funktioniert hat. Ich gehe davon aus, dass du unser Manual gefunden hast, das einige Informationen über die Anpassung des Rucksacks an verschiedene Größen enthält, aber für den Fall, dass nicht, ist hier der Link: https://wayks.com/pages/manual

    Vielen Dank nochmals, dass du WAYKS ausprobiert hast, und wenn du noch Fragen hast oder uns Feedback geben möchtest, zögere nicht, uns zu kontaktieren.

    Liebe Grüße

    Toller Rucksack

    Ich habe den Rucksack Ende Dezember 2023 zu meinem Geburtstag in der Sandfarbe bekommen. Ich habe den Rucksack getauscht und den schwarzen bestellt, wobei der beige, sehr elegant ausschaut. Ich habe den Day Pack original.Der Rucksack ist toll, ein bisschen schwerer als andere Rucksäcke, dafür sitzt er sehr gut am Rücken. Ich bin eine Frau mit 1,56 m lang. Der Support ist ausgezeichnet! Alle Fragen wurden sehr schnell und zeitnahe beantwortet. Eine sehr kulante Firma. Habe eine große Freude mit dem Rucksack. Ich hatte Zeit für meine Entscheidung. Wurde nie unter Druck gesetzt. Im Gegenteil, viel Unterstützung auf alle meine Fragen.Danke!

    best backpack I bought

    I was considering buying the Wayks day Pack for over a year. I have to say it is worth every euro it costs. It is so functional and you can tell that they have spent much time on development, cause every detail/ every pocket/ feature is just perfectly designed and functional. I am using the backpack everyday to go to work and I can easily bring my lunch box, laptop and gym clothes with me. I have nothing to add other than that this is really the best gift I bought myself since many years!!!

    Highly recommended by @ecofriend.lia on YouTube!

    I bought the wayks daypack mini a few months ago and I love it! I decided to go ahead and invest in the Wayks Original backpack in the same color, so that I can use the larger backpack when I go on trips. For right now, I'm keeping it packed full for my "go bag". I have a large first aid kit, toiletries, clothing and other items that would be used in an emergency situation. Let's say that I've packed it FULL and I still have room for other small things. The backpack is high quality and beautiful. I absolutely love it and would also highly recommend it.


    The recipient is overjoyed with this functional and high quality daypack.

    A favourite go-to

    My favourite backpack for everyday and travelling.
    Good quality and a well-thought-out product.
    Very friendly customer service.

    Works well as a secondary backpack

    I was looking for a nicer looking backpack and impulse bought this one after seeing an ad. I’m happy with the purchase, it does the job, and it’s nicely organised inside. Light enough, and rests well on the shoulder.
    I have the beige version, and it gets dirty very easily (which I should have foreseen haha). I wonder how it will fare in the long term, it does feel a bit less sturdy than my other backpack from a more renowned brand (which went through **** and is still in perfect shape). That being said, as of today, I used it for two trips, and it did its job very well. So overall, I’m happy with the purchase!

    Bester Rucksack, den ich je hatte

    Es hat ein wenig gedauert, bis ich alle Features des Rucksacks verstanden hatte (war leider keine Anleitung dabei, gibt aber ein Manual) aber es ist wirklich der beste beste beste Rucksack, den ich je hatte. Er hat quasi alle Features, die ich mir immer gewünscht habe: Rolltop mit Reissverschluss oben, praktische Seitentaschen für Wasserflasche (so dass sie aber nicht rausfällt), dazu diese praktischen Reissverschlüsse seitlich und zum Öffnen wie einen Rollkoffer, flauschige kleine Fächer für Handy und Geldbeutel, die diebstahlsicher angebracht sind, Laptopfach und Wasserabweisend und stylish dazu! Ich liebe ihn so sehr, es ist heftig. Vergesst GOT IT, das hier ist der real deal.

    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!

    You're doing a fantastic job and I wish you all the best for the future :)

    Keep it up!!

    Julia from Hamburg, Germany, about her WayksOne

    (translated) I wanted to tell you how amazing I find the design, functionality and ability of the backpack on the one hand, and of course how cool it is to get an insight into your production, the products you use for manufacturing and your employees . I've rarely been so excited about a brand!

    I wanted to leave you this positive feedback because I can only imagine how much effort, work and passion there is behind your project.

    Hannah from Vienna, Austria, about her WayksOne

    Tausend Dank! Von eurem Kundenservice kann sich so manch einer eine Scheibe abschneiden!

    Jakob from Vienna, Austria, about his WayksOne
