In an age of exploratory commutes, the call for a subtle, stealthy, and technical storage solution echoes intermittently through the corridors of the city. Along every narrowly tailored street, steam-filled alleyway, and rooftop summit, a lightweight, dependable pack is often your closest companion. Now, San Francisco’s Black Ember is providing urban warriors with a technical masterpiece — the perfect modular system for city-oriented traversal called the Citadel.

The Citadel was built using a single piece of the brand’s proprietary, laser-cut textile — a product of innovative construction techniques like heat-bonding and ultrasonic-welding — for unwavering durability. The implementation of the brand’s latest 800-Denier, three-layer Microhex provides exceptional reflection control, keeping you cloaked as you navigate, while an IPX-06 waterproof construction protects your valuables from a torrential downpour. The pack’s 3-D shoulder straps and an enhanced airflow back-panel keep you comfortable and moisture-free alongside a body contoured design that won’t ever lose its shape. The Citadel even expands to fit your needs, boasting an adaptable exterior that pairs perfectly with Black Ember’s MOD system — a collection of packs and pouches that secure instantly via German magnetic, aircraft-grade hardware.
