The WAYKS ONE: A sustainable & transformable Travel Backpack
The WAYKS ONE is a sustainably made, modular backpack. Within seconds it transforms from a Travel Backpack into a smaller Day Pack as well as a Camera / Cooler / Toiletry Bag.

The Fine Print
CUSTOMS, TAXES & DUTIES: Our rewards ship worldwide from Germany. Depending on the laws in your country, your government may charge you customs fees, duties and / or taxes for importing them. These are out of our control and not included in your pledge. However, many countries have a threshold, below which your import is not subject to any of those charges. We advise you to check the potential charges with your customs office. This calculator may be a good starting point, but we are not able to warrant its accuracy: https://www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/
GERMANY and EUROPEAN UNION: You won't have to pay any additional customs fees, taxes, or duties.
UNITED STATES: For personal imports to the US below the USD 800 threshold, no additional customs fees, taxes, or duties apply.
AUSTRALIA: For personal imports to Australia below the AUD 1000 threshold, no additional customs fees, taxes, or duties apply.
OTHER COUNTRIES: Please consider potential importing charges in your country. We cannot ship any rewards marked as gifts, as this would be illegal. Dad’s a retired judge, mum’s a retired teacher - they would be sooooo disappointed ;).
WARRANTY: We stand behind our products, so we grant a limited lifetime warranty against defects in workmanship and materials to the original owner. General wear and tear are not covered, same applies for using them for any purpose other than their intended use.
Due to its modular design, we are able to replace individual parts of the WAYKS ONE (as long as we have stock). So a faulty shoulder strap or hip belt no longer means having to throw out the whole backpack.

Risks and challenges
Our materials sourcing is complete. All materials are sourced from well-established suppliers. They cater for prestigious outdoor brands and have reliable processes as well as an established supply chain with our manufacturer. Even at the best companies, machines can break or mistakes can happen. If any issues arise that would affect our timeline or the quality of the products, we would let you know as soon as we can. In such cases, we would rather cope with a delay than making compromises on quality.
We produce at the same factory, which helped us to develop the WAYKS ONE. They are specialised in producing backpacks and mountaineering gear. Their operations run like clockwork, and production capacity is already reserved for us. We will be at the factory during our production to ensure everything goes smooth and the quality is up to our expectations. We will keep you updated about how everything is going and if any issues arise that would cause a delay.
We will use experienced logistics partners to ensure your backpacks go on a smooth, well insured journey from Viet Nam to our fulfilment center in Germany. On Youtube you may find footage of sinking ships or containers falling off board - but that's an extremely rare case ;). Getting stuck in customs for a few additional days is more common, however, our partners will prepare everything to facilitate fast processing. As usual, we´ll let you know, if unforeseen delays happen.
We won't be using our parents’ garage to store your backpacks. Instead, we work with a German fulfilment center with the experience and capacity to quickly send out your rewards soon after our shipping containers arrive. It depends on your shipping destination, which parcel delivery service will be used. We will provide tracking numbers through Backerkit.
We have backed and observed many campaigns on Kickstarter and have seen how things can go well and how they can go downhill. We strive to build a reputation as honest, reliable and approachable creators, and know that our communication is paramount for that.
Backers have different expectations about frequency and scope of communication, and we don't want to spam you. While some of you may like to stay updated on our progress daily, others may not be keen on getting all the little nitty gritty details delivered to their inboxes. Critical or particularly interesting information will always be provided through campaign updates, which are emailed to you. If you would like to follow our journey very closely, please also follow us on Instagram (wayksberlin), where we will post more frequently, including stories during manufacturing. And as always, please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
That's it for now. Thank you so much for backing our project! We want to see the WAYKS ONE on your backs as soon as possible and can´t wait to hear your feedback on it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
