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.
