100% Recycled nylon
100% Recycled polyester
At tropicfeel, we believe that sustainability is a responsibility, not an opportunity. Our Cruiser packable backpack is made from 100% recycled nylon, by reusing nylon materials, such as clothing. Additionally, we use 100% recycled polyester, in which we reconvert plastic bottles into a fabric, using between 7-8 bottles per yard of material. Waste not, what not!
Rip Stop Fabric Structure
Designed to resist, draws structures on the surface using thicker threads for extra strength to avoid the ripping of the material.
Lava XL technology
Lava XL targets and defeats bad odors also self re-generates, meaning your shoes stay fresher, for longer, no matter what you’re doing.
We performed the rigorous Martindale test during the creation of Cala. In this test, the shoe is scratched several times to test the abrasion. Usually, this test stops at the 25k mark, with Cala, it withstood 102,400 cycles of the test.

How do I proceed with my return?
Is this backpack waterproof?
Waterproof means that it can be immersed in water during a period of time, we don't recommend you try to put the backpack underwater, however, it’s a water repellent product. It protects the items inside the backpack from rain, sweating, etc. The fabric is treated to repel the water and also has a thin interior membrane.
Can I put my laptop in?
Yes of course! There is a compartment for it on the interior of the back suitable up to 17” inch approximately. However, this is a lightweight backpack, if you want to secure your laptop use a case for it.
Is the backpack packable?
Yes! The inner pocket has a double function, to organize small things, and also it's a reversible pocket where you can pack it!
Is as packable as the previous Cruiser?
It’s smaller than the average packable bags, but unfortunately not as small as the previous Cruiser. However, we definitely have upgraded this backpack to your daily life routine in many ways, starting with comfort.
Which is the capacity of this backpack?
The capacity is from 17-23l.
You can roll the backpack when you close it, so the capacity will adapt to your needs.
Which is the weight of the backpack?
How to clean it?
Considering it is treated to be water repellent we recommend the cleaning with a wet cloth and a bit of soap IF it’s needed (non-toxic, biodegradable types preferred).
Why cruiser 2.0 is more comfy than 1.0?
The materials used on the back give extra comfort thanks to the foam and the spacer mesh and combined with a more established rectangle pattern shape, the back stability is perfect.
Why is the main fabric more resistant?
The nylon fibers are by themselves more strength than polyester. On the other hand, the ripstop fabric structure draws structures on the surface using thicker threads that gives more strength than a plain texture.
Structure and composition get you a good lightweight resistant fabric for this backpack.
Can you compare your backpack to other brands?
We believe we have an excellent product thanks to the balance between comfort, packability, and practicality for daily use.
