This Travel Backpack is Your Portable Wardrobe
If you think you’ve heard the name Tropicfeel before, you’d be right. They’re known for breaking Kickstarter records for their travel sneakers (check out their Monsoon and Canyon), and climbed to a Highly Commended place in Carry Awards VII in their first year.
So they’re a brand with a perfect strike rate – and super engaged fanbase. So when their community asked for a backpack, they wanted to bring that same degree of innovation.
Enter the Shell Travel Backpack. A versatile all-rounder that’s eco-conscious, expandable, and provides something a little extra in the wardrobe department…
The Shell Travel Backpack offers an expandable volume range from 22L compressed, to 30L standard and 40L for travel functionality. This flexible volume makes the pack a handy daily carry companion for commutes, a grab-and-go gear hauler for weekend trips, and a useful one-bag option for more extensive travel.
A portable wardrobe wherever you go
Having to unpack all of your gear at your accommodation can be a hassle. But the Shell Backpack comes with a Wardrobe System that features multiple compartments and shelves. The Wardrobe System allows you to easily organize and compress your gear, so you can pack a little extra if needed. Bonus? It’s removable from the backpack so you can hang it separately for convenient access.
Access and organization to suit your needs
The Shell Travel Backpack offers dual access, with back-panel clamshell access and top-loading access to easily reach gear on the go. Opening the back panel reveals the 17″ laptop compartment with two additional pockets for smaller items.
The pack’s expandable 6L kangaroo pocket is handy for storing items such as shoes separately from the rest of your gear. Plus you can pair the pack with optional accessories including a Tech Pouch and Toiletry Bag (which attach magnetically to the front of the bag), as well as a Camera Cube for photography gear.
Sustainably built for life on the move
A travel pack needs to be comfy and ready for the elements. The Shell Travel Backpack features an ergonomic, ventilated and padded back panel, with a waist belt, sternum strap and load lifters enhancing load stability while you’re notching up those adventure points.
Sustainability is a key focus for Tropicfeel. They’re committed to creating goods that support a more mindful way of traveling, with minimized environmental impact. The Shell Travel Backpack features 100% recycled nylon, 64% recycled polyester, and bluesign® approved components. Weatherproof YKK zippers and materials keep your gear protected from the elements and enhance the durable build that’s made to last for a lifetime of adventures. So much so that Tropicfeel are backing the pack with a lifetime guarantee, an exclusive perk for Kickstarter backers only.
The one-bag dream, made real
The Tropicfeel Shell Travel Backpack is a sustainably made, highly versatile pack that can move with you from daily use to adventures near and far. All while offering excellent organization that flexes to changing needs. If you’re interested in scoring one for yourself, check out their IndieGoGo campaign for more details.
