Travel Backpack 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

Lining

  • Day Pack: 100% Polyester (100% recycled), 150 x 150 Denier
  • Cube: 100% Nylon
  • PFC-free coating (outside) and PU coating (inside) for waterproofing
  • Sourced from bluesign® System Partner

Zippers

  • 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
Buckles
  • Recycled plastic (black version), sourced from bluesign® System Partner
  • Durable aluminium hook for roll top closure

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)

Super sac de voyage !

Sac très pratique et conforme pour des voyages professionnels de 2, 3 ou 4 jours.
La qualité est au rendez-vous, les coutures sont propres et les différentes accroches sont très bien faites. Je n’ai pas vu à première vue de défauts rédhibitoires ou de défauts tout court. Je m’en sers pour des voyages professionnels mais je pense que le sac est aussi bien fait pour partir en vacances.

The perfect compromise between everyday backpack and travel bag

I was looking for a versatile bag that I could use in everyday life and on short trips. Honestly, I wasn't disappointed at all. The bag does its job wonderfully. I was a little apprehensive about the size of the bag at its smallest, being afraid of having a shell on my back even for everyday use. In the end, it's not at all as bulky as I thought it would be. I also appreciate the effort put into the design, which I find very well thought out.
For longer trips, the bag is also very good. The clamshell opening really helps to optimize space when filling the bag. The support foams are a little too stiff for my taste, but still distribute the weight well.

Alles Top!

Perfect and practical but not so big inside

I love the thinking of the multi detailing the zippers and possibility to put everything together. But the inside of the globetrotter isn’t so big after all. But the design is perfect and trendy!

Hi Dees,

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! We're happy you like the design and modularity. Sorry to hear that the volume didn't fully suit your needs! We created the design to maintain a sleek profile while still being large enough to carry all your travel essentials.

Further details on the volume and dimensions of our bags can be found at: https://wayks.com/pages/dimensions-3

Please let us know if you ever have any further questions about how to best optimize the space in your Globetrotter!

Best,
WAYKS team

Overpriced

The product quality is far from the price I bought two and both have issues with the zippers and the sewing.
The idea is god though

Hi Michael,
Thanks a lot for your purchase. I am so sorry to hear that two of your bags have issues. Manufacturing errors are very rare but if they happen, we of course take care of them.
Could you email us photos of the issues to hello@wayks.com so we can assist you further?
Many thanks,
Fabian

Highly recommended

We really enjoyed our SA and Thailand trip with our Wayks bags.
We found the different storage areas very convenient , it was a pleasure to repack every 3 days.
The compression bags are really a must, in combination with these from travel monkey, you can organize the bags perfectly.
Next to handy they are also super beautiful ....

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 :)

(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.
