    THE CITADEL / MINIMAL

    The CITADEL MINIMAL is a sleek, minimal, urban backpack, featuring our latest performance textile : the 900-Denier 3-Layer Micro-Hex in Deep Black. This textile is specified to reduce reflection and keep you stealthy. Our proprietary laser-cut and bonded construction yields an IPX-06 waterproof rating. This means that it’s built to stay dry even when sprayed with a 1,000 PSI water jet.

    We leverage technical fit and functional knowledge from our outdoor performance design legacy to give the CITADEL great support, comfort & balance, even under heavy loads. The CITADELS' body contoured back panel is a composite construction that maintains a shape that hugs your back. Our airflow channel funnels hot air off your back and keeps you dry. Our 3D shoulder straps are crafted from two layers of EVA foam. One maintains structure and the other creates a soft body conscious fit. Both make for a comfy ride, even when your pack is fully loaded.

    Recommended by the Black Ember team and offered here at special pricing. THE MINIMAL KIT includes the following:

    • THE CITADEL MINIMAL PACK

    • COMPRESSION STRAPS (SET OF TWO)

    • TWO HANDLES

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

"I had a great experience walking over 40 km in two days with my Black Ember backpack fully loaded. It was nice on my back and the expandable storage through modular pouches is really nice for gadgets (my smartphone and my RX100 and micro tripod), and attached my Mavic Pro with the straps!"

- Pierre, France

"I'm loving my pack. I’ve taken it as my one and only piece of luggage to London, Barcelona, Rome, San Francisco, Las Vegas and New York. This Spring, it’ll be on my back to Berlin and Moscow. Thanks for bringing a great product to the market."

- RJS, USA

"I just wanted to reach out and praise your company on the quality and thoughtfulness that went into producing this back. I am in love with the modularity and build quality of the bag. The straps are the most comfortable straps I have ever used and it blew me away that they were removable or concealed into the back!"

- Terrence, USA

"I’ve taken nothing but my Black Ember backpack on multiple week long trips to Japan, Canada and Taiwan. And I’m wearing it to work everyday."
