Black Ember is launching their Gen03 Collection of Modular-Packs. The Gen03 Collection utilizes our new ultra-light-weight, and low profile Mod-Clasp hardware, featuring Acetal & laser-cut Hypalon components.

In their most minimal form Black Ember Gen03 packs are designed to give you the right amount of space and key features to get you through the next 24 to 48 hours of your life. They strive to deliver this within a sleek and minimal package.

Black Ember backpacks are durable, highly functional, weatherproof, packs designed to house and protect your critical gear. Each material has been carefully chosen for its particular performance characteristics and aesthetic quality: including our highest performance X50 4-layer, Black-Camo fabric made by Dimension Polyant, USA. The backpacks are designed and crafted in obsessive functional and aesthetic detail. They design, develop, and manufacture their own cast-aluminum hardware and we also partner with Fidlock, the innovative German manufacturer of magnetic, mechanical locking hardware.

The Black Ember design process is directly informed by our teams experience with Outdoor Performance design & built for everyday carry in urban environments. Our ergonomic, form fitted 3D shoulder-straps support the pack’s load comfortably & each pack features an airflow back-panel to reduce heat and perspiration.

Black Ember packs are modular, so you get to build your own your kit, specify it just the way you want it, and even change your set-up over time. Your Black Ember Pack is good to go as-is. If you need more space & want to customize your pack, add Mods (modular accessories) to get the custom build you’re looking for. Black Ember users often tell us that one of their favorite ways to use their Mods is to keep dedicated pouches fully packed and ready to attach, such as a camera dedicated pouch, a media pouch, or a passport travel ready pouch. Mods can be attached both inside and outside of Black Ember Gen03 packs.

The DSLR Case is a 7 liter fanny-pack that is designed to carry and protect DSLR/SLR camera equipment. The DSLR Case is also modular & can be attached to the base or the top of the Citadel Backpack like the hood of a back country pack.

The 25 liter Citadel Pack is a deceptively simple design and features a primary zipper that runs nearly the full length of the pack, as well as an external access laptop sleeve. The Citadel is compatible with all Gen03 Mods. Mods can be attached both inside and outside of the Citadel. The Citadel is also specially designed to work in tandem with the Black Ember DSLR Case.

The 30 liter Holdall Msngr is a hybrid messenger pack featuring an innovative top zipper and a leather wrap handle integrated seamlessly into the form of the pack. The Holdall Msngr features an ergonomic shoulder strap with quick-release aluminum hardware and can be set-up for either right or left handed use. The Holdall Msngr is compatible with all Gen03 Mods. Mods can be attached both inside and outside of the Holdall. The Holdall also features an external access laptop sleeve.

The 30 liter TL3 Pack is a sleek urban top-loader featuring an innovative top access with the weatherproof qualities of a roll-top backpack and the convenience of a zipper access pack. The TL3 pack also features a mag-lock buckle connected top handle integrated seamlessly into the form of the pack. The TL3 Pack is compatible with all Gen03 Mods.
