We offer the CITADEL in two variants : MINIMAL and MODULAR. The CITADEL MINIMAL is a sleek, discreet, minimal urban backpack. The CITADEL MODULAR is a pack system that adapts on the fly, adjusting to your daily needs.
Whether you’re headed to the city streets, or halfway around the world, Black Ember keeps you in performance comfort and your gear fully protected.
THE CITADEL / MINIMAL
The CITADEL MINIMAL is a sleek, minimal, urban backpack, featuring our latest performance textile : the 900-Denier 3-Layer Micro-Hex in Deep Black. This textile is specified to reduce reflection and keep you stealthy. Our proprietary laser-cut and bonded construction yields an IPX-06 waterproof rating. This means that it’s built to stay dry even when sprayed with a 1,000 PSI water jet.
We leverage technical fit and functional knowledge from our outdoor performance design legacy to give the CITADEL great support, comfort & balance, even under heavy loads. The CITADELS' body contoured back panel is a composite construction that maintains a shape that hugs your back. Our airflow channel funnels hot air off your back and keeps you dry. Our 3D shoulder straps are crafted from two layers of EVA foam. One maintains structure and the other creates a soft body conscious fit. Both make for a comfy ride, even when your pack is fully loaded.
*The CITADEL PACK comes with one SIDE HANDLE. Order an extra SIDE HANDLE and keep two handles on your pack at all times for efficient transport in briefcase style carry. The CITADEL PACK does not come with compression straps. Please order straps separately.
