    Pretty bag for a day out but too narrow

    I absolutely love the big travel backpack of Wayks so I decided to buy the smaller 'day pack' as well. The material is just as nice as the big one, but in my opinion it's too narrow so you can't easily fill it up with stuff when you go out for a day. Hope they'll make the next version a bit wider :-).


    Der Rucksack ist klasse befüllbar. Es passt alles rein, was ich mitnehmen möchte. Leider rutscht mir immer ein Träger von der Schulter. Da passt etwas nicht richtig für mich. Sonst bin ich sehr zufrieden. Das Material ist super. Sieht auch nach einem Jahr täglichen Gebrauchs noch gut aus.

    It’s a big yes !

    The Mini is clearly a fashion item for the summer, and the quality is visible in every detail. It is comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I like it especially because it fits my small frame and ends at the right spot in my lower back. The storage pockets are neat and allow good organisation. The only downside for me is I cannot access the bottom of the bag if the first mesh pocket is full. It takes a little bit of organisation and practice to make all my things accessible.
    I am still super happy and would definitely recommend this product. I have had contact with Leonie & Fabian before ordering and they were so helpful and kind.

    Hi Lisa,
    Thank you so much for your kind words – we are super happy to hear that you like your backpack so much and are happy with our service. :)
    Thank you also for your helpful feedback about the mesh pocket. We will keep this in mind when we update the design of the backpack.
    Kind regards,

    Kathrin R.
    Träger zu weit auseinander

    Eigentlich ein schöner Rucksack.. gute Aufteilung und Verarbeitung. Leider sind die Träger am oberen Teil des Rucksacks viel zu weit außen angebracht sodass es nach längerem Tragen an Schultern und Oberarmen wehtut. Schade. Ich bin zwar weiblich, habe aber eigentlich recht breite Schultern...

    Hallo Kathrin,
    vielen Dank für dein Feedback. Wir freuen uns sehr über deine Zufriedenheit mit dem Aussehen, der Aufteilung und der Verarbeitung des Rucksacks. :)
    Ebenso tut es uns sehr leid, dass die Träger für dich nicht optimal sind. Am Abstand der oberen Befestigung liegt es vermutlich nicht, da dieser schon recht gering ist. Es kann aber sein, dass sich die Schultergurte bei dir etwas zu weit zur Seite bewegen, sobald du ihn aufsetzt. Das ist sehr hilfreich zu wissen. Es hat uns dazu noch kein weiteres Feedback erreicht, aber wir werden dies weiter beobachten, um den Rucksack kontinuierlich zu verbessern. Ggf. finden wir eine Lösung, wie man sicherstellen kann, dass die Gurte vorn weiter innen gehalten werden können.
    Herzlichen Dank nochmal für deine Bestellung und dein Feedback.
    Liebe Grüße

    Der perfekte Alltagsrucksack

    Der Day Pack Mini ist der perfekte Rucksack für den Alltag. Ich habe lange nach einem Rucksack gesucht, der perfekte Größe, hervorragende Qualität und praktische Anwendung vereint. In seiner kleinsten Größe ist der Day Pack Mini super proportioniert und handlich für den Uni- und Arbeitsalltag. Wenn man mal ein bisschen mehr Platz braucht für ein paar Turnschuhe für ein Workout oder die Einkäufe auf dem Weg nach Hause ist das durch die Erweiterung möglich. Außerdem sieht der Rucksack auch noch super aus. Die Inneneinteilung ist super durchdacht und meine Wertsachen fühlen sich sicher. Ich kann diesen Rucksack also nur empfehlen!

    Herzlichen Dank, liebe Hanna! Wir freuen uns sehr, dass das Design des Day Pack Mini so perfekt zu deinen Bedürfnissen passt und du so zufrieden mit ihm bist. :)
    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.

    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!!

    A very happy customer :)

    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
