A waterproof three-way commuter pack

The Forge is a 3-way commuter pack, transforming to a backpack for comfortable and efficient load carry, to a brief for business, and then to shoulder bag for casual carry. It also works as a 30 liter, 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 liters, which 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.

Featuring Black Ember waterproof Cordura textile and YKK AquaGuard zippers, the Forge is a multifunction pack for everyday use that will keep your gear safe and dry. It has a clamshell opening, which means it unzips 360 degrees, so you can see all your gear laid out and well organized right in front of you.

Designed with logical gear access in mind, the Forge has all the organization 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 “Butterfly Back-Panel” makes shoulder strap storage simple, and more importantly, allows room for the ergonomic 3D shoulder-straps. For optimized 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, while an airflow back-panel keeps you cool and dry in the summer heat.

Like all Black Ember products, the Forge benefits from the high-precision proprietary construction. All textile components, including the waterproof, 3-layer, Cordura textile are laser-cut for precise assembly. This construction yields a super durable, over-engineered pack with a blacked-out, minimal and stealthy aesthetic.

The Forge includes the following:

  • 2 × Brief handles
  • 1 × Backpack shoulder straps
  • 1 × Shoulder bag strap
  • 1 × Magnetic key ring
  • 1 × Removable sternum strap

Awesome bag
Great daily with a lot of room and flexibility. Amazing quality.

A little bit heavy if your looking for purely a briefcase. But that’s what you get with an expandable bag. Big enough to get me through a weekend getaway. In backpack mode it’s a dream.
