Black Ember is launching their Gen03 Collection of Modular-Packs. The Gen03 Collection utilises 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.

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 their 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. Black Ember has designed, developed, and manufactured their own cast-aluminium hardware and has also partnered with Fidlock, the innovative German manufacturer of magnetic, mechanical locking hardware.

Built for everyday carry in urban environments, the 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. If you need more space and want to customise your pack, you can add Mods (modular accessories) to get the custom build you’re looking for.

The Mods allow for 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.
