Tropicfeel, a company that focuses on using upcycled materials, natural fabrics and compostable packaging, is changing the packing game with Shell, its travel and commuter backpack and wardrobe system on Kickstarter.

The Shell backpack and wardrobe system features a minimalist 3-in-1 adaptable design that seamlessly transitions to suit the commuter, weekender, and traveler by transforming into three different sizes: compressed, normal and expanded.

Tropicfeel’s new backpack has raised over $1.2-million USD in pre-orders since launch thanks to support from over 4,200 backers.

“We’d like to thank all of our backers for their amazing support which shows us there is a huge demand for smart, functional, ecofriendly products,” said Alberto Espinos, Tropicfeel founder and CEO. “We’re changing the way people travel while being fully sustainable. We couldn’t be happier that people are embracing Shell and everything it represents.”

Shell daily-use features include: compressible, laptop pocket, mesh pockets for stationery and a fully accessible top opening.

For longer trips, the wardrobe system features three different compartments for organization, allowing for 20% more packing, reinventing the packing cube compressible mechanism:

  • Two closed compartments for small accessories and garments
  • One big compartment to place trousers, shirts, jumpers, long dresses or overalls
  • One compartment with shelves to keep t-shirts organized and instantly accessible

Additional accessories for The Shell available for purchase include: a camera cube to protect camera equipment, pocket pouch for quick easy access to items and a toiletry bag.
