The Black Ember TKS, Tech And Sling Combined
With a few clever additions and high-quality materials, Black Ember offers the perfect hybrid of a tech pouch and a waterproof sling bag. The Black Ember TKS can seamlessly transform between the two, creating a new kind of carry solution with unique storage compartments protected by a durable shell, flexible enough for you to organise your cargo exactly how you want.

The Black Ember TKS (“tech kit sling”) is made from a proprietary high-performance textile - a Microhex HTX, which is a fully waterproof, high tenacity, 3-layer material that’s exceptionally durable and tactile. Two unique yarns are combined using a crossweave to create a subtle visual appeal, making this bag as aesthetically pleasing and fashionable as it is highly functional and well considered.
Black Ember have clearly thought of numerous situations for everyday carry, using original ideas to create a hybrid carry solution that’s got quick-access at the forefront , alongside a supreme level of organisation so you aren’t constantly fumbling around for your tech essentials while on the go.
The exterior of the bag, superbly sleek and minimal, is defined mostly by its simple yet effective strap management and highly technical sewing. Black Ember’s bond stitch approach is used to great effect here, creating seams which are durable and fully waterproof to help protect the bag, which when considered in tandem with reliable YKK AquaGuard zippers, achieves an IPX6 rating.
The bag’s strap can simply be pulled from its original position, wrapped around the tech pouch, and connected to instantly transform it into a flexible sling bag. A fidlock magnetic v buckle can be used to secure the strap and ensure easy adjustment on the go.
When the strap isn’t in use, the sling bag transforms back into a tech pouch that can be easily thrown into a larger bag or carried around. There’s also a small loop for hanging the bag of any hooks or attachment points with a simple carabiner - this is located on the dense and comfortable back panel, which is where the straps can be positioned when they aren’t needed.
The pouch has two main compartments, both incredibly distinctive and reiterating the amount of thought that has gone into creating the Black Ember TKS.
On the front. You have one small zippered compartment perfect for quick-access items like transit and office essentials.
Here is where you’ll find an intuitive and quick-release key leash, as well as a stretchy mesh pocket that’s perfect for phones, which can be charged even if a power bank is placed in the main compartment; this is because Black Ember have included a laser-cut pass-through that extends from the main pocket.
The main compartment has a special security feature with the 2 YKK AquaGuard zippers which can be pulled through each other to create a lock that easily deters thieves. Once the two zippers and two complementing pull tabs are fed through each other, the main compartment is incredibly tough to access so you won’t have to worry about any opportunistic thieving while you’re on the daily commute.
Open up the main compartment completely for a clamshell that gives you full visibility over your cargo, with two sections distinguished from one another for two different uses.
On one side you have a generously sized mesh pocket that can rise up and stretch out should you want to add more cargo. Switch over to the other side and you will find the pouch’s main storage, which is organised into six different pockets which include small slip pockets that open up in an accordion style, similar to how Peak Design approaches some of their pouches. Space is truly maximised here, with Black Ember clearly throwing in a lot of creativity to ensure your items are laid out in a logical, accessible, and ritualistic manner so your everyday gear or tech gear looks neat.
