Hi, we are Leonie & Fabian
We are the sister-brother-duo behind WAYKS. We develop versatile, trans-seasonal and responsibly-made premium gear for your travels and everyday life. Whenever you contact WAYKS, you speak directly to us.
Our products are made by VAUDE Viet Nam. The German factory owner and his team look back on decades of experience producing high-performance mountaineering equipment. Regular audits by the Fair Wear Foundation and bluesign® help to continuously improve social and environmental manufacturing standards.
The components of our bags are mostly sourced from bluesign® System Partners and predominantly made from recycled materials, which significantly decreases their oil and water consumption as well as their CO2 emissions.
PFCs are chemicals used in coatings to make fabrics water repellent. They are harmful to both the environment and people. Despite the availability of well-performing alternatives, many outdoor businesses continue to use them. At WAYKS, we do not source any materials with PFC finishes.
Hanna from Würzburg, Germany, about her WayksOne
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.

Hannah from Vienna, Austria, 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.

I would like to say thank you so much! You have been absolutely fantastic with customer service!! I would like to say that I just took the backpack on another trip over in Michigan and it was fantastic to use yet again.
