Explorers need gear that’s as versatile and rugged as they are, so Black Ember created the perfect carrier for bold adventurers. The Black Ember Forge Pack is a three-in-one carry-on that can transform to meet your needs for any scenario.
Inspired by the three-way packs of Japanese commuters, which originated in ’90s Tokyo, this piece of gear can morph into a backpack, briefcase, or shoulder bag. It’s a weatherproof multifunction pack with an air-flow back-panel, 3D shoulder straps, and Microhex 3-layer waterproof textiles, protecting your gear no matter where you travel. It also has a Butterfly Back-Panel for stowing the bag’s magnetic compression straps, YKK AquaGuard zippers, easy-access pockets, and a luggage handle-compatible strap. You can even expand it from 20 liters to 30 liters, in case you need more room for longer trips. The adaptable backpack comes in Multicam Cordura or Microhex waterproof fabric. You can back the project now, starting at $179.
