Quality meets sustainability
Sustainability as a design principle
At Tropicfeel, we took our time in selecting suppliers that not only were sustainable in nature but also offered high caliber, high quality, long-lasting materials. To do this, we focused on suppliers that were Bluesign® certified, meaning they had been vetted prior to ensure safer and more sustainable environments for people to work in and everyone to live in.
The Backpack contains Bluesign® APPROVED components. It also contains 100% recycled nylon and 64% recycled polyester which are both resistant and strong materials designed for constant, heavy use.
To begin with, we were trying to figure out how to have a fixed wardrobe, inside the backpack, without adding too much extra weight. This was challenging, as we also had to determine the perfect size and dimensions for it while making sure it wasn't too big and could fit inside the bag comfortably.
We tried many different methods until we got the perfect result by adding a compression system which helped both reduce the overall size of the inbuilt wardrobe and also let you fit even more things inside.
The lateral straps used on each side for compression are made out of Nylon Spandex, which is a material that can be expanded by over 500% without breaking, and returns to its original size when not in use.
We use hard boards called the Polyurethan Board (PEB) located at the top and bottom, inside the fabrics of the wardrobe. These are inserted to help the whole structure keep its shape, while also making compression easier and more efficient.
We use a mix of both pre and post-consumer waste to minimize the negative impact we have on our planet. Pre-consumer waste is a material that’s been scrapped before it was ready for use, and post-consumer waste is a material that’s been discarded after it served its original purpose.
This system allow you to attach the add-ons safely to the front of the Shell. It connects via a magnet so once locked in, they won't be able to be pulled off until you lift the security tab.
YKK Sealed Zippers
All YKK zippers are corrosion resistant, polished, plated, extra durable and built to stand the test of time with constant use.
Attention to detail is everything. We’re proud to present the Shell backpack as the first product to show our new logo and symbol, marking the new era of Tropicfeel gear.
At Tropicfeel, we pride ourselves on the power of collaboration. Our community was essential in the co-creation of the Shell backpack. This is why to develop this Shell we listened to the needs, feedback, and opinions of over 5000 travelers.
Some questions you may have
No. Unfortunately we do not sell the wardrobe system separately. It is designed to fit exclusively for the Shell and must be purchased alongside the backpack. If you need to return the backpack due to a fault, the wardrobe system will also need to be returned.
We currently offer two shipping options: STANDARD & EXPRESS. Delivery times and cost is dependent on which option is chosen and your shipping destination.

1. TOILETRY & POUCH POCKET: To ensure complete security and peace of mind, we’re adding 2x the security by adding 2x Fidlock magnets and pull tabs. To remove your detachable accessories, simply pull up on both tabs at the same time to release the locks, and lift off.
2. BUCKLES: After several stages of additional testing with our prototype,the metallic fidlocks became scratched very easily, ruining the overall look of the backpack. To resolve this issue, we have replaced the buckles with ones made from ultra durable, scratch resistant Duraflex® plastic. This means your Shell can keep on looking great, long after first use.
3. OPENING SECTION OF LAPTOP COMPARTMENT: We're implementing a Hook and loop fastener closure system to improve the closing mechanism of the lid of the laptop compartment. It automatically secures once the two materials touch.
4. WARDROBE BUCKLES: The final hardware chosen will be a high quality duraflex hooking system to allow for extra strength and durability.
