Wayks One Transformable Backpack Review

A very functional eco-friendly bag, the Wayks One expands and compresses into multiple different functions, making it a great bag for daily and travel use.

  • Super sustainable, eco friendly materials and build. Materials made from plastic water bottles, bluesign approved and worker-conscious factories.
  • Very comfortable harness. It’s actually removable too.
  • Lots of capacity — expands up to 37L. Rolltops are great, but also sometimes not that great.
  • Zip-on boot compartment — insulated to keep things cold, camera cube insert, suitable for packing stuff.
  • Lots of external access — two big side pockets with inner divider, quick access pocket, security pocket.
  • Clamshell opening — easy-ish to get stuff in and out and keep things organized. But ultimately can be a pain to open up.
