We put tons of effort into developing and testing our packs. Each Black Ember pack comes with a lifetime warranty to back it up. Our packs are durable, highly functional and waterproof. We obsess over functional and aesthetic detail: each textile or hardware specification has been carefully chosen for its particular performance characteristics and aesthetic quality. Take good care of your pack and you can expect it to literally last a lifetime.
While post consumer content materials (such as PET) promise the beginnings of a closed loop product cycle, these materials have also been shown in recent studies to shed microfiber particles over time of use: deteriorating the product quality and shedding the fibers into the environment. Our position is to specify the highest quality materials we can procure to last a lifetime. In our opinion the High Tenacity Nylon fibers we use (although not made from post consumer content) are a better solution than Poly based at this time.
