The right everyday carry essentials can be tough to find, even when you search high and low — that’s why when a new product launch does everything the right way, it’s worth it to pay attention. Black Ember has already blown through its initial goal of $25K for its new Citadel Collection, generating some serious buzz around packs that are, as the brand says, “designed to house and protect your critical gear.” Does that sound like something you need in your life? Read on.
Launching in early 2018, the Citadel Collection features the highly technical, efficient and sleek Citadel Modular Pack, a beastly bag that still manages to sweat the small stuff. That goes for aircraft-grade aluminum hardware and laser-cut hypalon pulls, in addition to a micro-hex performance textile exterior for additional durability. Did we mention it’s waterproof, guaranteed for life and designed to make it easy to carry and wear all day long? Yes sir, the Black Ember Citadel Collection deserves your pre-funding dollars. – $155+
