    DEX Packs combine the classic lines and simple functionality of a duffel with the comfort, support and flexibility of a backpack. The DEX transitions seamlessly between Backpack and Duffel modes with stowable backpack and duffel straps.

    DEX packs are like classic Duffels that you grip by the handles as you move through an airport, and when you decide to skip the Uber and walk across town to your hotel, the DEX really shines. 

    DEX packs are a composite build with a lightweight Cordura® RN66 shell, strategically laser-cut and bonded hypalon panels,  and YKK Aquaguard zippers. 3D shoulder straps with two densities of EVA foam provide both cushion and support and the back-panel is a high density frame sheet that flexes to fit your shape.

    The top pocket of the DEX features the Fidlock V-Buckle, and inside you'll find the Boarding-Kit (Boarding-Kit sold separately). Whether you're road-tripping or hopping a flight: stow your DEX and have a seat with your Boarding-KIt. You'll have everything you need for the journey, including your iPad.  On the opposite side is the shoe pocket for one or two pairs of shoes. 

    Black Ember is proud to be the world's first brand to collaborate with Cordura® on their new Cordura® re/cor™ RN66. It's the first 100% recycled nylon textile from Cordura®. The RN66 code name stands for recycled nylon six, six.  That 6,6 rating means it's a high tenacity nylon that's ultra-durable and it's passed the brutal barrage of tests that make a woven nylon a Cordura®.
