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.

Recycled materials

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.

Magnetic Fidlock®
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.

New branding
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.
