Black Ember is a design company based out of California that builds high-quality technical backpacks with a minimalist aesthetic that provides serious waterproofing and urban-friendly styling. The WPRT is, as its acronym points out, a waterproof roll top that’s elegant but modular, with an exterior that takes different pouches that you can configure to suit your daily missions. It offers a generous main cargo area that’s fully protected from immersion in water up to an IPX6 rating due to a 800D 3-layer Microhex technical fabric exterior that’s been laser-cut and bonded with no seams for water to get in. With Fidlock hardware, it’s easy to get into the bag internals, and its understated minimalist urban styling helps you not stand out in a crowd.
