FORGE-20 is a smaller Forge, Three-Way commuter pack. Dedicated to your everyday commute, 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.
Featuring our waterproof Microhex textile, and YKK Aquaguard zippers, the Forge-20 is a multifunction pack for everyday use that will keep your gear safe and dry. The Forge-20 is a clamshell style pack, that means it unzips 360 degrees, so you can see all your essentials laid out and well organized right in front of you.
Designed with logical gear access in mind, the Forge-20 has all the organization needed for tech-centric lifestyles. External fast access for essentials like: Keys, wallet and phone, soft and protective pockets for Laptops and tablets, generous easy access pockets, and hidden zipper pockets for secure items.
The Forge features a “Butterfly Back-Panel” that makes shoulder strap storage simple, and more importantly allows room for our 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. The Forge-20 is compatible with rolling luggage handles, features a TSA compliant fully protected and suspended laptop sleeve.
Like all Black Ember products the Forge benefits from our high-precision proprietary construction. All textile components, including our waterproof, 3-layer, Microhex textile are laser-cut for precise assembly. This construction yields a super durable, over-engineered pack with a blacked-out, minimal and stealthy aesthetic.
