    Solid, practical, slightly heavy backpack

    I just ordered the backpack before I moved to the Middle East. My Jordanian friends commented that the backpack made me look like a white anthropologist in the 19th century. Joke asides: it's a lovely backpack with lots of useful pockets and departments. I used it on several flights as a carry-on luggage and it always fit all my stuff. We've done some successful hiking through deserts and canyons together. The only thing I don't like about it is its weight and the fact that it looks dirty quite quickly. Would still give it five stars though because it's doing a good job. Couldn't test it for its waterproofing features yet because there wasn't barely any rain.


    Form und Funktion gehen Hand in Hand

    some room for improvement but overall very high quality

    its definitely a great bag, and I especially appreciate the care taken to ensure that the supply chain is sustainable/ethical, but I find the clamshell style less useful than I would have thought. It is more often the case that I just want to reach into the bag for something quick, and the clamshell design causes it to sorta spill apart. It's rare that I have enough space to really spread out my bag and open it 'properly' in a clamshell manner.

    I do really like the extendable roll-top combined with the 'traditional' entry style tho.

    I also find the bottom 'shoe' pocket not so useful. It's awkward to access, and I'd rather just wrap my shoes in a plastic bag and put them in the main pouch.

    lastly, I would have liked 1 more easy-access pocket on the outside. Maybe something like the detachable pouch on the TropicFeel shell bag. My partner has the other interlocking bags from Wayks but it seems like a bit of a hassle to attach and detach them.

    I also never use the 'light' straps that came with the bag, and they could probably just be omitted imo.

    i know that sounds like a lot of negatives, but I still find it a great bag! just a critical type of guy I suppose

    Tres bon

    Versatile and useful

    I am using my black version of the Day pack already 1 year for food shopping and travels and I am super happy! This is a Best Buy! ;)


    I spent a lot of time shopping for a good bag, comparing different brands and prices and features. I wasn't 100% convinced because of the price tag, but finally gave in and I am VERY happy I did.
    This bag is perfect, it easily adapts from a light bag with just what I need for school or work to a travel pack for travelling lightly for 1 weekend to 2 weeks. It still feels like great quality after 6 months.
    Living in the Netherlands it has kept the rain out during biking commutes, there are many useful pockets, a bottom compartment great for gym shoes, and handy laptop + paper sleeves. Even the tiny outer pockets are way deeper than they seem on top of being soft and fuzzy.
    Highly recomend!

    New favourite backpack

    Exceptionally good quality, very robust and smart details. It's very comfortable to wear and suitable for every occasion due to its variable volume and chic look. I love the deep dark black colour.
    I only whish the little side pocket which is perfect for my phone was on the other side since I am right handed ;)

    Hi Johanna,
    It is so nice to read how happy you are with your backpack, thanks a lot! :)
    Thank you also for your feedback about the pocket position. I just want to let you know why we decided to place it on the left side of the back: During our development we got the impression that most right handed people would not be flexible enough to comfortably access the pocket without taking the whole backpack off their shoulders if it was on the right side. So we placed it on the left side to because then they do not have to take off the whole backpack but just slightly swing it to the front over their left shoulder to quickly and comfortably access the pocket with their right hand.
    Many thanks again for your order and your review. :)

    Super Rucksack!

    Sehr durchdachtes Konzept - bin total glücklich damit :-)

    Das macht uns glücklich – herzlichen Dank, lieber Dirk :)

    Amichai B.
    Love it

    Love it

    Thanks a lot, that makes us happy. :)
    Kind regards,

    Anika E.
    Sehr zufrieden

    Alles in allem benutz ich den Rucksack täglich aufs Neue gern. Einige kleine Dinge sind mir augefallen:

    - Eine Öse/Schlaufe außen wäre für mich praktisch für Boulderschuhe etc.
    - das Netz in den Seitentaschen finde ich eher störend als hilfreich, weil man auf die Schnelle dran hängen bleibt.
    - Ich dachte zuvor, das die seitlichen Taschen zusätzlichen Platz bieten, stattdessen gehen sie nach innen. Vielleicht wäre es praktisch, wenn sie den inneren Platz nicht aufbrauchen und sich nach außen stülpen.

    Ich hoffe, es ist verständlich in Deutsch.
    Danke und Liebe Grüße
    Anika Engler

    Hallo Anika,
    herzlichen Dank für dein liebes Feedback und deine Hinweise. Es ist schön, dass du deinen Rucksack so gern nutzt. :)

    Ich hoffe, die folgenden Infos zu den von dir genannten Punkten sind hilfreich zu wissen:
    - Der Rucksack hat außen vier kleine Schlaufen, um unseren Mat Strap anzubringen. Die sind wahrscheinlich zu klein, um deine Boulderschuhe direkt dran zu befestigen, du könntest aber einen Karabiner einhaken oder größere Schlaufen daran befestigen, um Gegenstände außen am Rucksack zu tragen, für die sich der Mat Strap nicht gut eignet.

    - Zu den Seitentaschen: Ich kann gut nachvollziehen, dass es manchmal praktischer wäre, wenn das Volumen der Seitentaschen komplett unabhängig vom Innenraum wäre, insbesondere wenn das Hauptfach prall gefüllt ist. Dass sich die Seitentaschen einen Teil des Volumens mit dem Innenraum teilen, lässt sich leider nicht vermeiden, außer wenn wir eine feste Platte in die Seiten einbauen würden und die Seitentaschen deutlich verbreitern würden. Dies würde jedoch das Gewicht erhöhen und insgesamt die Breite und Form des Rucksacks sehr stark verändern. Wir haben uns entschieden, die elastischen Netze in die Seitentaschen zu integrieren, damit man auch kleine Dinge gut verstauen kann, ohne dass sie beim Öffnen des Fachs heraus fallen und damit man die Reißverschlüsse nicht unbedingt schließen muss, wenn man häufig an seine Wasserflasche möchte, z.B. beim Wandern. Dies gibt auch mehr Flexibilität, wenn das mit dem Hauptfach geteilte Volumen mal zum Problem wird.

    Vielen lieben Dank nochmal für deine Bestellung und deinen Review. :)
    Liebe Grüße

    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.
