This post will tell you my opinion about the Tropicfeel Shell backpack, the advantages, what I like the most, and what I don’t like so much.
Tropicfeel has created the Shell backpack intending to make it the only backpack you need. It is simple on the outside and innovative on the inside.
What do we like most and least about the Shell backpack?
In this review, I give you my personal opinion about the Tropicfeel Shell backpack, which is what we like the most and what we least, its pros and cons. Let’s start!
This backpack is very versatile; you can use it in three sizes. For day to day you have the option of 22 liters, for a weekend getaway: 30 liters and for a long trip, expand it to 40 liters.
You can find it in three colors: black, green, and red. The red one is my favorite. Which one is yours?

What is it made of? and aesthetics
To create a backpack that works for everything, Tropicfeel has created a unique backpack, the Shell backpack. With the possibility of using it in different scenarios and for different styles of travel.
As always, at Tropicfeel, they bet on recycled materials. 100% of the nylon used is recycled, and 60% of the polyester. This is a significant point that must be highlighted about the brand, its mission to be eco-friendly in all the products they create.
The Shell backpack is available in 3 colors: red, green, and black, with different accessories.
The backpack is waterproof, so it can be used in any situation and weather.
To use the removable inner wardrobe, you have to use the backpack in normal or expanded mode. This is really the strong point of the backpack.
From a simple, urban-looking 22-liter backpack, it becomes a robust and complete travel backpack.
It is very functional and practical and can add magnetic external accessories to increase its capacity and organization.
The zippers and closing buckles are sturdy and easy to use.
Pockets and removable wardrobe
At first glance, it seems that the Shell backpack has only one pocket, the one on the flap. But hidden behind the 4 magnetic points of the accessories, there is another pocket, ideal for storing a notebook. For complete security and to avoid pickpockets, the zipper is completely covered.
There is another hidden pocket at the hip’s height, which comes in handy to keep documents, passport, flight tickets, money, etc., close at hand and well stored.
Wardrobe: The removable inner wardrobe system makes it the best thing about the backpack. In this way, you have everything in order, more things come in, and you know where you have everything.
The wardrobe system is divided into three parts
The upper part, where underwear and socks can go since it is subdivided into two compartments.
The center section is the widest, and it is up to you that you want to fill it. But it is an ideal place for jeans, t-shirts and larger clothing.
At the bottom, you will find a section divided into 10 smaller compartments. To optimize space, store your clothes as in the images, making a roll of your clothes.
Once you have your wardrobe ready, it is time to compress it to fit in the backpack. For this, there are straps on the sides. The best thing is to adjust a little on each side, to compress it evenly.
Once you arrive at your accommodation, you take it out of the Shell backpack and hang it on the bar of your wardrobe to have your clothes easily accessible and to be able to use your backpack for the day-to-day of your trip.
Outside the Shell Backpack
The Shell backpack comes with three accessories that are added to the backpack by a system of magnets.
And while the system may seem unsafe, it really is not. The accessories must be aligned with the four points you can see on the backpack’s front. Although I have not tried to tear it off, the grip is strong.
You can carry the backpack hanging on your back or as a bag by the side handle. To do this, it has different straps to adjust the backpack and make it more compact. The good thing, it passes as a carry-on on airplanes (22l or 30l version)
It has an outer pocket to carry a bottle of water.
At the bottom, there is a hidden zippered pocket where the “kangaroo” pocket is located that is used to put dirty shoes or things you want to keep separate.
- Toiletry Bag: a bag designed for your personal hygiene needs. In this way, everything about hygiene is separate, and you can put it on the outer magnets; they are safe and do not fall off.
- Tech Pouch: an additional bag to store your chargers, memory cards, external battery, etc. It also sticks on the outside of the backpack, on the 4 magnets.
- Camera Cube: a bag to store your camera and accessories. It is not intended for professional or amateur photographers with multiple lenses. If not for an SLR camera, a lens, spare batteries, portable hard drive, chargers, etc. It is recommended to store it at the top of the backpack.
Where to buy the Tropicfeel Shell backpack?
The Tropicfeel Shell backpack at the moment (March) is in “pre-order,” this means that you can order it, and you will receive it later. At the time of writing this review, the delivery date is April.
The advantage of buying it at the “pre-order” moment is that you save 20% on the real price. Another of the great advantages is that overstocking is avoided. This is good for the planet because only what will be consumed is created, and less pollution is generated.
You can buy the Shell backpack on the Tropicfeel website through this link. And by the way, take a look at the all-terrain shoes.
I think I’ve already told you about everything the Tropicfeel Shell Backpack has to offer. Simply put, this backpack is an all-in-one solution that any travel lover will be happy to have.
Maybe if you already have your backpack assembling routine on your travels, this may not be too attractive to you, as you should start over, but for a person who is starting or never knows how to pack, this is an all-in-one solution magnificent.
It is also useful for people who travel by camper van or motorhome, sporadically or renting them at their destination. The reason is that this backpack can be carried as a carry-on on the plane and then the closet; you can put it directly in the compartment to store the van’s clothes, so you will have everything organized and accessible. And the suitcases do not take up space!
