Black Ember is stoked to announce the launch of the V4 MODULAR ADVENTURE TRAVEL PACK.

From DSLR gear to travel essentials, select your modular cube, pack it with gear, then instantly secure the cubes inside your V4 as you hear the satisfying “kachunk” of the Mag-locks locking your gear in place inside the V4.

Black Ember travel is mission driven. Work and play are intertwined and Destinations become connected dots. The Black Ember team’s first adventure with the original V4 prototype was an eleven day sprint from the MeKong Delta to the streets of Tokyo, and finally back home to California. The pack performed well and was a pleasure to carry. We got serious about making the V4.

The V4 is sized for international carry-on and the modular fold-out laptop sleeve allows you to breeze through security. Travelers will appreciate two sizes of compression cubes which also transform into shoulder bags. Customize your pack set up uniquely for every adventure or even keep MODs pre-packed with gear to be instantly attached on the fly. 

The V4 is well outfitted for photography gear. Choose from two sizes of modular DSLR Cubes to protect and organizing your gear. These cubes instantly detach and transform into DSLR shoulder bags and waist pack.

We asked Bo Ismono & Carryology.com to review the V4: 

 

Black Ember is a small team of designers and product developers with a collective experience of more than 50 years designing and developing technical equipment. We’ve designed products for the most respected brands in the travel, and outdoor industries. We got our start right here on Kickstarter in 2014 and since then we’ve raised almost a half million dollars to help us grow, expand our team, and offer you innovative new backpacks.

 We put tons of effort into developing and testing our packs and each Black Ember pack comes with a life-time warranty to back it up. Our backpacks are durable, highly functional and weatherproof. We obsess over functional and aesthetic detail: each textile or hardware specification has been carefully chosen for its particular performance characteristics and aesthetic quality.

 

Risks and challenges

This is our third campaign on Kickstarter. Our design, development, and production processes are super tight, as is our relationship with our production partners. On this our fourth major collection launch we are 100% confident that we will deliver your Black Ember V4 Pack without fail.
We are nothing if not obsessed with production quality. From time to time one of our suppliers may not meet our standards during a component review. On these occasions our policy is always to disapprove substandard components. Although this situation does not happen often, this can cause delays. But, not to worry, in the unlikely chance of a vendor delay we will always push hard to resolve the issue quickly and deliver your Black Ember pack with minimal delay. We are 100% confident that we will deliver your Black Ember pack without fail.
