Black Ember Citadel & Modular Backpack Review

The Citadel from Black Ember is a daily carry and gear backpack that comes in two flavors: a minimal, sleek version, and a modular, “customize this sucker!” version.

  • Sleek look — all black water resistant materials all the way around.
  • Modular accessories — very interesting customizable setup for the modular backpack.
  • Excellent components — all of the straps, clips and bits are made from uber high quality, aircraft grade materials.

The Aer Flight Pack is a dope little daily carry backpack. It has a kind of slick look to the design (though it also has a kind of "turtle shell" vibe).

This very packable bag from YNOT is SUPER minimal, very simple, and a favorite choice of mine for packing away into a larger travel bag for daily use.
