The SHADOW collection continues our tradition of modern, weatherproof packs designed for everyday carry in the city and carry-on travel. 

SHADOW is a minimal everyday backpack, well equipped for modern life. It's a clean and functional pack designed to fit your life while protecting your essentials. 

SHADOW is crafted from the new CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66 textile. The SHADOW features YKK Aquaguard zippers and our proprietary BOND-STITCH construction. Together, they keep your essentials dry.

The SHADOW’s back panel independently flexes to match the shape of your back. There's an air-flow channel for ventilation, with an integrated luggage strap. Our ergonomic shoulder straps are designed for all day comfort, no matter what you carry, and they can easily be stowed for a clean professional look. In the fast access pocket, your phone is charging. Your keys, wallet, and more are easily accessible.

The SHADOW is a clamshell pack with an innovative interior design. It unzips completely with everything laid out in front of you. Inside, you'll find suspended laptop and tablet sleeves, durable mesh pockets and a water bottle pocket. Grab the magnetic buckle to release the Built-In Tech-Kit. With six separate pockets the Tech-Kit keeps you organized. Our laser-etched hypalon zipper pulls lock together with a snap.

All Black Ember products are made using our BOND-STITCH high-precision construction. All textile components are laser-cut for precise assembly. This construction yields a super durable, over-engineered pack with a blacked-out, minimal and stealthy aesthetic.

The SHADOW is available in 22 liter or 26 liter sizes.


The SHADOW is designed with minimalism and comfort in mind. It also features stowable straps for a professional look.
