The Black Ember 16" Forge Backpack 30L is a 3-Way commuter pack with the ability to transform to a Backpack for comfortable and efficient load carry, to a Soft-Brief for business, and then to Shoulder-Bag for casual carry.  The Forge completes your modern wardrobe with elegant functionality. YKK Aquaguard zippers and Black Ember's proprietary bond-stitch construction keep your gear dry. The Forge is crafted from the new CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66.

The Forge is also a 30 litre, one-bag travel pack. Tucked away in a hidden zipper, there’s a small-strap. Give that strap a pull and the Forge expands instantly from 20 to 30 litres. That adds enough room for several days of clothing, footwear and toiletries. The Forge is compatible with rolling luggage handles, features a TSA compliant fully protected and suspended laptop sleeve.

The Forge is a clamshell style pack, that means it unzips 360 degrees, so you can see all your gear laid out and well organised right in front of you. Designed with logical gear access in mind, the Forge has all the organisation needed for tech-centric lifestyles. External fast access for essentials like keys, wallet and phones; soft and protective pockets for laptops and tablets; generous easy-access pockets; and hidden zipper pockets for secure items.

The ergonomic shoulder straps are optimised for comfort and load carry: two layers of the same EVA-Foam found in the best running shoes make for an especially comfortable and supportive harness. The airflow back-panel keeps you cool and dry and includes a convenient storage space to quickly stow your shoulder straps. Black Ember's laser-etched hypalon zipper-pulls lock together with a snap.

Black Ember is proud to be the world's first brand to collaborate with CORDURA® Advanced Fabrics on the launch of its new CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66 collection. It is the first 100% recycled nylon 6,6 textile from CORDURA®.

When compared to virgin N6,6 production CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66 produces 83% fewer GHG emissions, consumes 82% less energy and uses 57% less water.

All Black Ember products are made using their bond-stitch high-precision construction. All textile components are laser-cut for precise assembly. This construction yields a super durable, over-engineered pack with a blacked-out, minimal and stealthy aesthetic.

              Epic and fits my gaming laptop

              I work fifo and have been looking for a carry on solution that would let me carry my gaming laptop, edc and extra clothing as we are generally only allowed 10kg checked in. I wanted to write this review to help others with their decision as I couldn’t find any info about wether this bag would fit my gaming laptop. I have an Aorus 15p xd gaming laptop and it measures 24.4 x 35.6 x 2.7 CM (The same size as a 16” MacBook just thicker) The laptop pocket is definitely full with not much play left, but it fits and the magnetic buckle closes keeping things nice and tight. The rest of the bag is insane, the build quality is ridiculous! You won’t be disappointed if you decided to pull the trigger on this bag.

              Best of best for me

              The first bag I ordered from Rushfaster, the bag I had been thinking about for a long time, was ordered and received from a place that provided the best service. This has been a great gift to me as much as the long time I have been thinking and waiting for. It is used for a variety of purposes, and there is no shortage and it is not biased toward one side. Many thanks to Rushfaster for their great help.
