This Expandable Weatherproof Travel Pack Turns Into A Modular Organizer

The backpack space is vast; defined by countless models and variants built for their own unique purpose. Unfortunately, the breadth of the backpack genre introduces its own complexities, especially when you’re trying to nail down a versatile, well-rounded model that can take on everything from a mid-morning commute, all the way to a full-fledged outdoor excursion. That’s why Tropicfeel went back to the basics to devise one of the most intuitive pack systems to date — a lightweight, waterproof model known as the “Shell.”

The brand’s Shell pack is being marketed as the ultimate travel backpack, and we’re inclined to agree. What begins as a small, commute-savvy 20-liter pack, quickly takes on the role of a more robust, 30-liter weekender, or a large, all-encompassing 40-liter travel pack, thanks to the company’s specially-contrived modular expansion system. Its 3-in-1 design features an internal baffling system that will keep all of your important items safe from harm, but for those more involved trips, you’ll find that you can utilize the brand’s easy-to-access wardrobe, which boasts a built-in compression system, to organize your garments for more intuitive storage. Mesh pockets, a padded laptop sleeve, and fidlock closures ensure ample security, while a waterproof, recycled nylon fabric helps the bag to stand up to the rigors of everyday use. Head to the brand’s Kickstarter to pre-order a pack of your own for $165.
