Modular at its core

The WAYKS ONE consists of 13 different parts.

They can be attached or detached depending on whatever you're up to and how much support you need.

A strong zipper runs along the bottom of the Day Pack to hold the Cube. Simply zip off the Cube and attach the Soft Bottom to turn the Travel Backpack into a smaller Day Pack.


The back padding can be removed completely and the padded backpack straps can be exchanged for simple, soft seat belt webbing straps.

To use the Cube as a shoulder bag, remove the hip belt padding and attach the shoulder strap. Attach the belt to the Day Pack to stabilise the backpack during active sports, such as cycling or skiing.

    About the brand

    Wayks is a brand founded by two German siblings, Leonie and Fabian.

    Wayks’ idea came about when Leonie once owned a large impractical beach bag where she carried her belongings. It was painful to carry the bag from place to place and Leonie decided it was time to look for a suitable backpack to carry all her belongings. However, after searching, she failed to find a backpack whose design she liked.

    Nor did any backpack seem practical enough to carry, for example, a camera, laptop, and other everyday important things. After searching throw the internet and shops Leonie had found technical backpacks, but in appearance, they did not meet expectations. The idea of a niche market was born.

    Fabian lived in Australia at the time. In his spare time, he traveled a lot and ran into a similar problem. He longed for an efficient bag to hold all his stuff, but he didn’t want to carry around too big a bag.

    The siblings devised a Wayks backpack, the size of the bag could be adjusted as needed. They wanted to combine beautiful design, practicality, and sustainability in the backpack. In addition to the original backpack, Wayks' selection also includes other bags and packaging accessories.

    Wayks converts from a seven-liter backpack to a 45-liter backpack. So it is suitable for everyone and the uses can be invented indefinitely. Whether you go on a flea market tour or a fishing trip - this backpack can hold everything you need.
