Whether you’re headed to the office, going out on a hike, or traveling to places both near and far, the last thing you want is for the gear and clothes in your pack getting wet because you got caught out in the rain. When you consider the price of expensive electronics such as your tablet and laptop, waterproof bags are even more essential. Black Ember, an EDC enthusiast, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice convenience for waterproof convenience. Black Ember has been creating quality everyday carry bags for many years with their distinctive technical looks. They have now put all that they know into this new waterproof pack. This water-proof, slim pack is ready for adventure and can hold all your essential tech.

A lot of bags bill themselves as suitable for slim EDC, but when you actually put them on your back you find they’re bigger and more ungainly than you thought at first glance. The Black Ember, however, is a bag that can carry 22 to 26 liters of gear and still be compact enough to use for urban travel as well as outdoor carry. It’s also water-jet tested to IPX6 to resist liquid ingress up to 1200psi. Microhex HTX 3 layer crossweave technical fabric with YKK Aquaguard zips made this possible. For the best of both, the seams at the back are all bond-stitched for strength and protection against the elements. This allows you to carry your gear in confidence, even when it is pouring down.

But all that capacity and protection won’t matter if actually loading and unloading the pack was inconvenient. Black Ember’s provides a front quick-access pocket for keys and other small items, while a fully clamshell lay-flat zippered opening makes packing easy and efficient. You can access the interiors and organization areas of the bag by unzipping the Hypalon zipper pulls.

The luggage-passthrough design allows you to place the bag on top of a larger bag so it can be carried on your back. The bag has grab handles on both sides, and the adjustable straps at the bottom allow you to carry a jacket or other rolled accessory.

Black Ember has a long history of delivering quality everyday carry gear, and the SHADOW series is finally here in your choice of or sizes.
