The best backpack I have ever used for commuting.
It's pretty sturdy and water resistant if you get the zippers all the way to the bottom.
It gives me the feeling it will not suit for a 3 day trip but haven't tried it yet for one.
First product I buy from Black Ember but surely not the last!

Worth every penny
I was super excited to finally get this backpack and it has not let me down one bit. It looks the part and everything feels of the highest quality. Extremely thoughtful design and a banger execution.

Not readily available in Europe but Mukama is one of the few shops that had it in stock. Ordered and shipped the same day, arrived the next in the Netherlands. Very reassuring since it's an expensive bag and Mukama seems on their game when it comes to service.

Nothing but compliments!

Best Backpack
The Citadel R2 is the best Backpack I have ever owned. It is sleek in design, versatile and has more than enough pockets to pack all your EDC. It also has a smart divider to pack down bulky stuff like clothes to get it out the way. The 360 degree zipper allows for easy access, even if the backpack is full.
Only downside is that if you try to fit too much inside the backpack you might have a really hard time closing it.

Very good, really high quality backpack
I like it very much. Nothing to complain about. Perfect for getting to and from work. Unfortunately not able to use it for travel yet, but I am convinced it performs just as well.

Sehr guter, wirklich Hochqualitativer Rucksack

Great look and workmanship. That's how I imagined.
The laptop compartment is heavily padded. Unfortunately not removable, so it takes up space even when it is not needed.
I'm really looking forward to using it every day.

Super Optik und Verarbeitung. Hab ich mir so vorgestellt.
Das Laptop Fach ist stark gepolstert. Leider nicht entnehmbar, so verbraucht es Platz auch wenn man es nicht benötigt.
Freu mich riesig drauf ihn täglich zu benutzen.
